This borderline lob look features longer layers towards the front that rest at collarbone length. It’s a great transition cut for those who are tempted to go short but are unsure if it’ll suit them.
Sleek, glossy and slightly curved inwards, the glass bob is a glamorous choice for those who prefer straight styles and weaves. Shine spray at the ready.
Nader’s top tip: “I’m a complete lover of applying a serum or a shine spray on damp hair, as this absorbs into the hair far better than on dry hair. Blowdry into the hair if time permits as this will give strands more sheen without out making your hair look like it is oily. This is especially vital for blondes where they put on these products on dry hair blonde strands tend to look dirtier quicker.”
Side swept bob
The side fringe of the 00s is slowly creeping back… and we don’t mind it. Particularly when paired with an above-the-shoulder bob.
Curls can embrace the shorter style too, as seen here on Yara Shahidi. A look like this relies more on styling than the cut and where the hair is parted.
Layered, textured and just the right amount of swish. The shaggy bob looks great paired with a curtain fringe, or flipped to one side.
Nader’s top tip: “Even though curtain bangs are kept on the longer side and grow out faster, this is key for making sure your curtain bangs appear lived-in and sexier, rather than having it cut too short above the eyebrows, [which takes it] back to preschool days. Keeping length longer is more French girl inspired.
No blunt ends in sight. The shattered bob is all about choppy layers, adding movement to limp and lifeless hair types.
Blunt, even ends and not a hair out of place. The structured bob compliments a platinum colour perfectly.
Those with thicker, wavier hair can also nail a cheek-grazing cut. Just consult with your hairdresser before getting your heart set on a length, as your curl pattern and the amount of volume you seek will determine where it lies.
