Layered or blunt, which bob would you try?

The bob is a classic hairstyle that will, in all probability, be around forever. This isn't exactly surprising when you consider all the different ways to wear it - from long to short to wavy to stick straight - the possibilities are pretty much endless.

The main options for a bob cut are layered and blunt, but the big question is, which one would you choose?


A bob with layers can be shaped in all kinds of ways, from a full-on 'Rachel' to a few subtle curves. To get the perfect look for you, talk to your stylist about where you would like the hair to fall and what kind of shape you want. That way, they can tailor the cut to your specifications.

Styling tip - While the hair is still damp, apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray throughout, pin it up into a couple of buns then let it dry naturally. This will leave you with plenty of natural, effortless movement.


A sharp blunt haircut always looks totally put together, so if you want a style that can be left down for any and every occasion, this could be exactly what you're looking for.

Styling tip - Keep your style smooth with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray. It will add shine, tame flyaways and keep frizz at bay so your bob stays just the way you want it.

What do you think? Which bob gets your vote?
