First it was the bob, then the “lob” (long bob) and now we have the “wob” trending. This wavy bob (wob), trend has been creeping into trend for a while. We fell in love with wavy long bobs, we fell in love with bobs and now, the wavy bob, or could we dare say the wob lob? It’s not too long, not too short. The textured look is easy to achieve and looks great for both day and night.
Here’s how to wear the look!
The Right Hair Cut
Try to find a hair stylist that has plenty of experience cutting wavy or curly hair. When you go this short, your hair will behave differently than when it had it’s longer length. Your stylist needs to account for your hair type (curl pattern, width, density). The wob has a lot of variations, from tousled and choppy waves to a polished vintage-inspired look. You have to decide what style works for your lifestyle, products, hair tools and maintenance.
How to Get the Lob with Straight/Fine Hair
This hair texture doesn’t naturally have waves. You’ll have to take some time with your curling iron, hot rollers, hair straightener or heatless wavy techniques. Find which styles works for your lifestyle and preferred wavy look.
How to Get the Lob with Thick/Coarse Hair
You’re already going to have some texture with this hair type. Depending on what type of curls that you want (bigger curling iron, bigger curls), you’ll have to add some control to your hair. You might just need a little product to prevent frizz. You can also try scrunching yor hair to acheive an easy but beautifully wavy look.
Wob Hairstyle Ideas
Opt for straighter hair with more tamed curls and with a vintage curl at the tips of your tresses.
Spice up your wob look by adding choppy long layers. This will give your wob more of a “shag” look for your daily style.
A side-swept wob will create plenty of volume around the crown of your hair. Opt for tame wavy tresses to keep things smooth but voluminous.
Long Wispy Bangs
Take one out of Taylor Swift’s book and opt for long wispy blunt bangs. These will complete the look by adding adding texture around your face with plenty of body and volume.
