Miss California USA 2016, Nadia Mejia, is one of our top hair crushes these days. This model, pageant winner and singer (yes, she even sings!) has one of the most envious textured long bobs. She rocks the balayage, the choppy cut and all different parts to show us that shorter hair definitely doesn’t mean less styling options. We’re rounding up our favorite Nadia Mejia long bob hairstyles.
Choppy Bob with Casual Side-Swept Part
There’s few people who rock the choppy long bob as well as Nadia Mejia does. Her long bob is naturally textured thanks to a haircut that has lots of choppy ends to perfectly compliment her wavy textured hair. She doesn’t need to spend time parting her hair either – simply running her fingers through her hair and pushing it to one side creates plenty of volume.
Loose Bangs and Low Bun
When you have shorter hair, you have to recreate your ponytail – and this is an opportunity for some adorable new updo hairstyles. Nadia Mejia is bowling her way to a perfect score with these loose bangs, center part and centered low bun.
Straight Hair with Heavy Blonde Balayage
You don’t see Nadia with straight hair often – and we love that she embraces her natural hairs texture. But, when she straightens her hair you can really see the heavy blonde balayage come together in a light, sleek and flattering hair style and color. We love that this shows the versatility of a long bob and balayage hair color!
Old Hollywood Vibes
Who doesn’t love the look of old Hollywood? These timeless Marilyn Monroe curls never go out of style. Old Hollywood curls were made for long bobs – they create volume, body, show off the many different colors in your hair and best of all, you don’t have to spend all day in the styling chair curling your hair.
Fedora and Curls
If you were worried that a long bob might not work with your summer and winter hats, worry no more. Nadia shows us that fedora’s (rather a big floppy winter hat or a classic fedora) and a long textured bob looks effortlessly chic.
Center Part with Polished Wavy Texture
A lot of long bob hairstyles rely on the tousled textured look. This look is ultra cute but if you’re looking for something a little more formal, opt for more polished curls. We love how Nadia went with a center part for her Miss California pageant because it allows for plenty of volume around the face and really emphasizes the blonde highlights in the long bob.
