Every now and then, we're reminded that simple hairstyles can actually be the most effective; such is the case with this long bob. It's a hairstyle that is polished but simple enough that it could be worn anywhere and with anything. If that's not a versatile look, we don't know what is!

The little things

We just love the way the blunt create a real face-framing effect, creating a pretty great excuse to have a little more fun with your makeup, should you decide to try a similar hairstyle.

As far as styling goes, getting a sharp bob like this to look smooth, sleek and totally under control is really easy with the right products. It's all about texture, or rather a lack of it.

Styling technique

We've already established that a long bob looks great worn poker straight. This means that when you're styling your hair, you want to make it smooth and straight, using a cream or spray to help fix your hair in place.

Top tip: Use Iron Straight Heatspray before running a flat iron through all of your hair, including your bangs. Then, finish with Frizz Vanisher Cream for a truly smooth finish.

The smoothness of this hairstyle is one of the main reasons it works so well, along with a sassy pose and a great outfit, naturally. Add to that a little extra length than you might get with a regular, shorter bob and you can create a totally original look.
