Which bob hairstyle gets your vote?

You probably already know that bobs are basically the coolest mid-length haircuts on the planet, but did you know just how versatile they are? They look great with all kinds of different hair textures and look gorgeous both with and without bangs.

The question is, do they look better with a messy finish or a smooth blowout?

Messy bob

With a little help from people like Karlie Kloss and Alexa Chung, wavy bobs AKA shags have turned into a serious hairstyle trend over the last couple of years. It's the original #wokeuplikedis look and one that is almost as effortless as it appears.

Styling tip
Spray dry hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and pin your hair back into two loose buns for twenty minutes. Then, shake your hair out, mist with hairspray and scrunch to finish.

Smooth blowout

A wavy blowout a really good idea for any haircut. It's a pulled-together style that you can wear everywhere and anywhere, and it's flattering on absolutely everyone. Whether you have a blunt cut bob or a layered one, a simple blowout is definitely a look you should have in your styling arsenal.

Styling tip
Apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream to damp hair and comb it through before blow-drying. The cream smooths and protects your strands as they dry.

Between messy waves or a classic blowout, how would you rock a bob cut?
