Which wavy hairstyle do you like best?

Both bobs and undone, textured waves have become established hairstyle trends in recent seasons and they compliment each other perfectly, just ask Karlie Kloss, she helped to make both looks so popular! The question is, would you prefer a short wavy or bob or a longer, shoulder skimming bob (aka a lob)?

Short wavy bob

This cute, timeless cut is a great short style for anyone who wants something cropped but isn't game for a full-on pixie. It has plenty of movement and can be worn wavy, straight, slicked back or even in a messy updo. It's also super manageable and doesn't take long to wash, dry and style.

Styling tip

Keep your finished style free from frizz and flyaways with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray. It instantly adds shine and calms any wispy, frizzy strands.

Wavy lob

If you have long hair and aren't quite prepared for a radically shorter look, a shoulder-skimming lob is the perfect cut for you. It has a lot of the same styling possibilities as a longer style with all the manageability and Alexa Chung level coolness of a bob.

Styling tip

Make sure your waves last all day with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. It will give your hair long lasting hold while protecting them from any frizz-inducing humidity in the air.
