Have fine hair? Ask for a blunt-cut bob with minimal layering to give the illusion of thickness. When tonging, keep the ends straight for a more modern look, as seen here on French beauty Lea Seydoux.
J-Law's lob is the stuff #hairgoals are made of - the deep side part and Hollywood wave suits her heart-shaped face.
If you have thick or curly hair, a shaggy bob with lots of layers cut in will do away with the bulk and give you the freedom to play around with various styling techniques. Beachy, textured waves balance out the angles of a square forehead.
Ask for your bob to be cut longer around your face and shorter at the back – subtly, now – for a perpetually polished look with none of the associated maintenance. The shape this gives works whether your hair is poker straight, curly or wavy.
Wavy hair types can afford to go shorter – style with a ‘90s-esque blow over and a liberal spritz of texturising spray.
A bob or lob with tousled waves is perfect for balancing out an oval face, which require more body around cheekbone-height to really make them pop. A side part or side-swept fringe breaks up a long forehead.
A centre part helps narrow a round face; ask for a lob with asymmetrical layers to give movement and body. This look works on virtually all hair types.
