We're definitely not the first people rediscovering our love of the wavy bob hairstyle, and we certainly won't be the last if Freida Pinto 's gorgeous blowout is anything to go by. It's just so pretty! So, what makes this short hairstyle so awesome?
Why we love wavy bob hairstyles
The length of a short bob like Freida's is the best of all worlds. It's just long enough to pin up every now and then, it has plenty of room to show off tousled, wavy textures, and it looks gorgeous with bangs!
It's also the perfect short haircut for summer because, come the fall, you can either grow it out into a lob, or keep it cropped for a statement, on-trend look. It can also be tailored to look stunning on all face shapes and with all hair textures, so if you're thinking about getting your tresses chopped off this summer, a bob is fairly safe, regret-free option!
Just don't forget to take along some photos of the exact kind of bob you want when you go to the salon. There are a lot of different bob haircuts out there and you don't want any communication breakdowns with your stylist.
As with all short haircuts, regular trims are essential to keep the shape intact and to prevent any awkward silhouettes from developping. Aside from that, it's all plain sailing! Washing, drying and styling all take significantly less time than they do with longer locks, and they also require less product which will save you money in the long run, too.
