Do you think a bob looks better with bangs or without?

Bob hairstyles are a great option for anyone who wants to try a short haircut, but doesn't want to commit to something as radical as a pixie. Without the hassle of long-hair maintenance, a bob still has enough length to work into all kinds of different styles from loose waves to simple updos and they frame the face beautifully.

The question is, does a bob cut look better with bangs or without? Let us know what you think by taking the poll above!

A real centerpiece

Without bangs, the focal point of a bob is wherever the hair is parted. Straight and center, a neat part can add a little extra polish to the look. Similarly, a side part can be styled to lend a little vintage flair to any bob, especially a short one. To style, define your chosen part when hair is damp and then blow-dry with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to fix it.

With bangs, wherever they fall to becomes the main event. Blunt bangs, especially of the closely cropped micro variety, will draw attention to the eyes and cheekbones, as will slightly wispier, feathered styles. Lightweight bangs than taper out at the sides can help to elongate your face and really throw your eyes into the limelight; the same goes for side-swept bangs, too. Just not that you will probably need to apply a little product such as Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum to a) create a little texture, and b) to help hold the hair in place, especially if the hair is naturally unruly.

The verdict

It all depends on how you feel about bangs but ultimately, this little debate has only really served to underline just how versatile a bob cut can be!
