Which bob do you prefer?

Summer is a great time to go for a shorter bob haircut, mostly because it's way cooler (in the literal sense of the word) than a longer cut... but also because it's guaranteed to give you a really classic look. If you're still undecided about whether or not you actually want to make the cut, maybe the sheer versatility of a bob will give you the motivation you need!

Bobs are probably the best short-to-medium cuts out there because it has all the benefits of a shorter style with all the styling possibilities of something a little longer - you can create different textures and even twist your hair into a simple updo with a bob.

Tousled waves and sleek, straight hair are both great ways to wear a bob. The question is, which style do you like best?

Beachy chic

Loose, wavy hair is a look that defines summer beauty for a lot of people, whatever their hair length. With plenty of tousled texture, it appears effortless and gloriously carefree, even if that's all an illusion!

To style: Spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray then take a large section and twist it. Hold the ends and blow-dry the hair to set the wave. Repeat this process on the rest of your hair then finger-comb to break up the twists.


If minimalism is more your thing, a smooth straight style is a great way to show off a bob cut, whether geometric or choppy. It also gives you a reason to sing Sade's Smooth Operator while you're getting ready...

To style: Spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray evenly throughout then flat iron in sections. Part your hair with a tail comb then complete the look with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray. This will give you a touchable, cashmere-soft finish and NO FRIZZ!

What do you think? Which bob is your favorite?
