 Blowout or Beachy Waves - Which Bob Hairstyle Do You Prefer?

Bob hairstyles are in and if fashion predictions are anything to go by, they're not budging from the list of top five most favorite women's hairstyles of all time, anytime soon. Of the many styles of long bobs requested most commonly at salons across the country, there's a clear-cut demand for textured hairstyles that include side-swept blowouts and beachy waves. Let's get to know these two lob styles a little better!

Side-Swept Blowout

The hot and trendy side-swept blowout is a glamou-event staple for women who have a classic long bob haircut. It can be created with all textures of hair – straight, way or curly and looks drop-dead gorgeous on almost every woman who wants to look her very best.

Who doesn't like gorgeous tresses blowing in the wind? Blowouts lift the hair strands at the roots and create both volume and movement through the lengths of your tresses. After a blowout, your bob looks and feels light and windswept, lending you an effortlessly elegant appeal.

While you can wear your lob with any hair part of your choice, a side part is a failsafe option that's not only bound to suit your face shape but also give your hairstyle a vogueish upgrade.

Try a side-swept blowout hairstyle on shoulder-grazing bob for the next party you attend and let us know how many compliments you win!

Beachy Waves

Wearing your long bob with beachy waves, tousled to perfection, is the sexiest style you can create with your hair. Although the name brings fond memories of summer, this loose hairstyle is perfect for all seasons. Beachy waves work best with straight to wavy hair; they have a youthful vibe about them and are perfect for college, date night or a party!

To lend a textured beachy waves to your long bob, divide you hair into multiple sections, mist them generously with a heat protectant hairspray and roll them loosely on a small-barreled curling iron to create loose curls. Spritz some tousle waves hairspray over the curled sections and let the pretty curves set for a couple of seconds. When done, run your fingers through your hair to break up the ringlets and get gorgeous beachy waves in your lob.
