The bob is certainly one of the most popular hairstyles that women around the world have tried or thought about trying at some point of time in their lives. Although short to medium in length, the bob is actually quite versatile! Hailing from a group of timeless hairstyles that are always in fashion, it can be cut and styled in a variety of ways.
If you too are planning to get a haircut this holiday season and are looking for something edgy that will not restrict your styling options, we highly recommend a bob. Need some inspiration? We've rounded up three of the best celebrity-inspired bob hairstyles for you to replicate:
1/ Karlie Kloss' Short Tousled Bob
Cut slightly past chin-length, Karlie Kloss's short bob hairstyle has a cute, contemporary vibe about it. While the side-swept bangs keep this short hairstyle from being boring, a subtle tousled texture lends it a natural-looking, fun feel. The short length of this hairstyle also offers a perfect chance to show off a long, beautiful neck.
This bob is perfect for women with oval face shapes. To make it look slightly disheveled, spritz some tousle waves hairspray on your damp tresses and scrunch them with your hands while blow-drying.
2/ Liya Kebede's Shoulder-length Layered Bob
Supermodel and L'Oreal Spokesperson Liya Kebede is not one to shy away from trying out edgy hairstyles and her shoulder-length layered bob more than proves the point. This hairstyle checks off a string of current hair trends, looks incredibly chic – without going overboard – and has everything that makes for an awesome, wearable hairstyle.
While layered hairstyles are known to add a sense of volume and movement to the mane and are highly recommended for those with fine hair, they can also help to take bulk off the mane and lend it a lighter, more airy finish.
A medium, shoulder-grazing length makes this bob hairstyle easy to manage. Highly recommended for those with round or square face shapes, this layered bob hairstyle worn with a side-part will frame and contour the face beautifully and help to draw attention to the eyes and the cheekbones.
You can style your layers with a DIY blowout. Prep your tresses by spritzing some quick blow dry hair primer spray and use a round brush to flip your hair sections out while blow-drying.
3/ Freia Pinto's Ultra-Sleek Bob
Freida Pinto's ultra-sleek bob is definitely one of the best short hairstyles that we've come across in recent times. For one, it is a failsafe option for those with naturally wavy hair. Moreover, it looks good on all face shapes and is incredibly easy to style too. Wear it with a side part and you can pull-off an on-trend look pretty much anywhere!
A good quality strand-smoother serum spray induces the 'wow factor' in this hairstyle. Spritz the product generously all over your mane to detangle knots, make your strands smooth and lend them a soft shine. Alternatively, if you have dry hair, work in a tiny amount of styling cream through your strands to achieve a glossy finish.
To add a curly effect to the ends, spritz the tips of your hair with some heat protectant spray, curl them on a medium-barreled curling iron and mist with a bold control hairspray to set the pretty curves for longer wear!
