A short wavy bob is one of those hairstyles that is simply eternal. It has become a go-to short style for red carpet stars and models alike, proving itself as one of the most versatile 'dos on the planet. If you're considering a new short cut, or just want a few ideas to update an existing one, this textured crop could be just what you're looking for!

A disheveled hairstyle doesn't have to mean messy; in fact, it's often used to balance out super formal attire. If you team some artful waves with a chic evening dress or formal work attire, your look will remain dressy without appearing severe. It might seem a little soon, but this styling tactic can also result in a seriously cute look for prom season, too!

There are different kinds of textures you can try, depending on how well your hair holds its shape once styles. Take a look through the gallery above and get inspired!

Wonderful waves

One super easy way to add some waves to a short bob is with a styling spray such as Advanced Hairstyle TXT Tousle Waves Spray. Apply it generously to dry or damp hair and ensure even coverage by running a wide-tooth comb through your locks. Then, take a half-inch section of hair and twist it. While holding the twist, blow-dry your hair and then finger-comb to reveal a few loose waves. Repeat on the rest of your hair, re-spray and scrunch.

For an ultra-feminine, romantic look, accessorize with a floral clip or headband.

Perfectly piecey

If your chosen bob cut is super short or naturally very straight, a piecey effect might suit you better. For this, you need a tub of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing gum and your hands. Seriously, that's it.

Take a little gum and emulsify it by rubbing your tops fingers together. Work it through your hair in quick, sweeping movements. Only use a tiny amount to start with and add more as needed. It's a whole lot easier than washing your hair and starting again if you end up with too much product in your hair! Take a small section of hair, twist it and separate it again for a slightly tousled look. Repeat at random intervals around your head and then scrunch your hair all over for a mussed finish.
