Long bob hairstyles can look good on pretty much anyone, with or without bangs. This is mostly down to the extra length providing enough space to play with different textures until you find one that works for you, unlike shorter crops. Loose waves are a great place to start because they flatter just about every face shape and have a certain wistful, romantic feel to them.
Oh, and did we mention that this is one seriously easy hairstyle to achieve?

Medium-length hairstyles like a long bob are perfect for loose waves – think Kristen Wiig circa Bridesmaids or Rose Byrne on pretty much any day of the week – as they create a relaxed yet grown-up look that you can wear to work, the mall, a party and anywhere in between. All you have to do is dress them up or down vis à vis clothes and makeup as needed.
What you need:
Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse
Blow-dryer with diffuser
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray
Step one: After towel-drying your hair, scrunch some Elastic Curl Mousse evenly throughout. Blow-dry the hair using a diffuser if you don't have time to let it air dry.
Step two: Use a wide-tooth comb to define a center part and then run it down through the rest of your hair.
Step three: If you're happy with the amount of movement in your hair, skip to step four. If not, take a medium-barrel curling iron to make some extra waves down the lengths of your hair, leaving the top third alone.
Step four: Mist the whole style with Bold Control Hairspray and complete any last-minute adjustments with your hands.
