Longer in Front
Here’s a stunning A-line style to match the cool of your shades. This long bob, or lob, gets a more fashionable take by sharply angling the hair from back to front.
This blunt-cut bob is classed up with side-swept bangs and highlights. The deep side part and all-one-length hair add glamour to this style.
The golden highlights in this perfectly layered mane of hair bring summer breezes to mind. Ask for balayage, a softer approach to weaving highlights into hair.
No Part, Slicked Back
A longer pixie is styled back in a quiff for extra polish. This androgynous look is versatile enough for everyday outings and the fanciest occasions.
Super Straight, Middle Part
You can’t go wrong with shiny straight hair. This fashionable blunt cut is dressed up with a few wisps of face-framing layers.
Side-Swept with Volume
Side-swept bangs look extra flirty with or without a flip. The light layers in this bob add more shape and volume.
Instead of blunt bangs, ask your stylist for choppy fringe for a lighter, highly textured look. These long, shaggy bangs caress the top of the cheekbones, adding softness to the cut.
The French bob is a chin-length bob with straight bangs or shaggy fringe. Add a deep side part to your style to look très élégant.
Blunt Ends, Tousled Strands
Take a blunt cut, add texture to the ends, and what do you get? Carefree, tousled strands that always look in place with little-to-no styling.
Today’s highlights aren’t as brassy and bold as yesteryear’s. Highlights are often painted on freehand with a light touch, and gradually lighten to the bottom. Subtle highlights add just enough shine while still feeling natural.
Here’s a head full of textured layers that add body and movement to the cut. Even better, this bob doesn’t require a daily blowout.
Sleek and Tucked Back
This bob that just grazes the jawbone is tucked behind the ear for a look that is both sophisticated and professional. Add that extra touch to a classic cut to show you mean business.
