For anyone who might be contemplating a short or medium-length hairstyle for summer, Jennifer Lopez has plenty of inspiration for you in the shape of this vintage curly bob, as seen at the Tony Awards last week. The L'Oréal Paris spokesperson recently made the switch from a much longer hairstyle to a shoulder-length bob and we just love the look, especially with an ultra-glamorous, retro finish!
Why try a long bob hairstyle
When you've had long hair for quite a while, you may feel the need for a change but don't necessarily want anything as radical as a pixie cut. That's where the long bob comes in. It's the perfect middle ground, leaving enough length to create updos and glam curls, with more manageability than longer cuts.
Our main argument in favor of JLo's take on the look, however, is simply how good it looks!
1/ Lasting curls
It's totally normal to have trouble getting your hair to hold a curl but the right styling techniques can really help. When each curled piece comes off the iron, clip it up to cool in order to set your strands into perfect curves. When all of the hair is curled and clipped, mist it all over with a strong hold finishing spray such as Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
2/ Frizz prevention
Whenever humidity is an issue, frizz prevention is key to maintaining a beautiful hairstyle. Seal your strands against the elements by styling your hair with a frizz preventing heat protectant like Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream. When you're done, finish with a high shine spray such as Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to tame flyaways and complete the look.
