Long Bob vs. Short Bob - Which Style Do You Choose?

The bob is a classic haircut that'll never go out of fashion. Sported by women of all ages, this haircut has many variations, styles and lengths to flatter every face shape. But should you go for a cute short bob or a flexible long bob? Read on to pick your favorite bob length...

The short bob

The short bob is longer than a pixie and hovers around the jawline. It suits women with long or oval face shapes and can be styled by leveraging one's natural hair texture. Get a blunt short bob for a neat hairstyle or a choppy one with lots of layers and feathered ends to highlight your cheekbones and make your mane look voluminous. You can also accompany your bob with bangs for a chic, youthful look!

This length of bob is ideal for you if you are a staunch believer in quick and easy wash-and-go hairstyles. However, you can always have some fun by tweaking the natural texture of your hair! Wear your short bob poker-straight or add some tousle waves or loose curls for a more vivacious, on trend hairstyle.

The long bob

If you're not sure about cutting your hair up to your jawline and want to sport a slightly demure hair length, the long bob or lob will be ideal for you.

Collarbone-grazing long bobs look great on women with round or square face shapes; when trimmed with precision, they can make the face look elongated by drawing eyes vertically. Feathery face-framing hair sections create angles on the sides of your face and highlight your cheekbones. While layers make your mane look voluminous, wearing your long bob poker-straight makes your hair look longer than it actually is!

The good thing about a lob is that it can be styled in a variety of ways, irrespective of the natural texture of your hair. You can wear it with or without bangs, create interesting half-up styles or even tie it up in a small pony!

Both the bob styles are in trend and can be worn just about anywhere. Which bob would you choose? Tell us by casting your Vote above!
