Which do you like best, a straight or wavy bob style?

As short hairstyles go, bobs are perhaps the most versatile and, as a result, probably the best... (sorry, but for this article, we must forsake you, pixie crop.) Mussed, smooth, straight or wavy, there are a ton of ways to rock a bob to create whatever look you want. You could go for some cute curls for date night or keep things super sleek for a job interview or formal occasion.

Saying that, you can style your bob however you want, anytime you want, because it's an out and out classic. It really all comes down to choosing the texture that you feel most comfortable and confident wearing!

So, the big question is: do you prefer this cut straight or wavy? Vote for your favorite above!

Pretty & polished

Styled straight, a bob appears well-kempt and totally under control, which is why it's just perfect for a formal setting. It's also a great style to keep an intense beauty look balanced on a night out - to help tone down heavy eye makeup or draw extra attention to a bold lip color, for example. On top of that, it's also a style that's super easy to actually do.

After applying Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, all you have to do is run a flat iron through your bob, taking care to curve the ends inwards a little for a natural-looking finish. If your hair is prone to frizz, blow-drying first with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream will help you to achieve super sleek results.

Wonderful waves

For anyone with a particularly angular face, romantic disposition or penchant for all things natural (or all of the above) might want to consider a pretty, wavy bob style instead. It helps to soften harsh lines and is can transform your look into the epitome of casual chic before you know it!

To get the look, apply Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray. Take a section of hair and twist it, before blow-drying, then finger-comb to reveal a few loose, relaxed waves. Repeat this process on all of your hair, re-spray and scrunch to finish. For added hold, apply a generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.

The verdict... or not

After careful consideration, the only real conclusion we've reached is that bobs are great, however you decide to style them.
