Will you try a bob cut of your very own?

We don't know if it's just us, but we always get a hankering to change up our hairstyle for summer. There's something about the casual feeling the season brings with it that makes us want to opt for an easy-going, fuss-free cut. So, if you've got straight hair and are looking for a new summertime style, the sleek bob is an excellent alternative. The short length keeps your hair away from your neck, and the style of the cut is a timeless classic.

Get the look

Step one: A sleek hairstyle depends on healthy, nourished hair, so remember to use a moisturizing mask once or twice per week and always protect your hair when heat styling. Starting with towel-dried hair, Apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream by L'Oréal Paris evenly throughout then dry with a round brush or, for a more natural look, let the hair air dry.

Top tip - If you prefer your hair to have a little more texture, spray it with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and blow-dry in large twisted sections while holding onto the ends.

Step two: Separate the hair into three horizontal sections - a top, middle, and bottom. Then use a flat iron to straighten each section of hair, taking care to glide it through to the ends rather than pulling it as this can cause damage. When it comes to your bangs, straighten them in both directions and then straight down.

Step three: Mist your hair all over with SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray to instantly banish any remaining frizz and flyaways, leaving you with smooth, straight hair.
