Styling Options:
  • Straight Bob: Achieve a sleek and chic look by straightening the bob with a flat iron.
  • Wavy Bob: Add waves or loose curls using a curling wand or rollers for a more relaxed and beachy vibe.
  • Textured Bob: Use texturizing products like sea salt spray or dry shampoo to add texture and volume to your bob.
Face Shapes and Suitability:
  • Round Faces: A longer bob (lob) can help elongate round faces.
  • Square Faces: Soften angular features with a layered or textured bob.
  • Heart-Shaped Faces: Bobs with soft layers around the chin can complement this face shape beautifully.
  • Oval Faces: Almost any type of bob works well with oval faces due to their balanced proportions.
