If you've got a bob hairstyle, learn how to wear it like a celebrity! Once thought of as drab and boring, bobs have taken on a whole new shape and personality over the last few years, and they're one of the hottest haircuts you can wear. The following article provides tips for achieving a bob hairstyle that's worthy of the red carpet.
Today's fabulous bobs aren't cut straight across at chin level. They're full of layers, shape and volume. For example, look at Katie Holmes's talked-about bob. She pairs piecey, fringed bangs with swinging layers that look elegant and modern. Ask your stylist to create a cut that will create plenty of movement and play. You can even go for a graduated bob, which is short and stacked in the back and longer in the front.
Today's celebrity bob haircuts are smooth and voluminous at the same time. Forget the hairspray and teasing, and bring on the flat iron. To achieve the look of an updated celebrity bob, you'll need smoothing or volumizing cream, shine spray, a blow dryer and a flat iron. After a shower, dry your hair lightly with a towel, then rub a dime-sized amount of smoothing or volumizing cream between your palms. Apply evenly throughout your hair, then dry thoroughly with a barrel brush, curling your hair under as you go. Next, straighten inch-wide sections of your hair, focusing on those around your face. Tousle lightly and finish with a shine spray.
To keep your bob looking its best, it's important to book regular appointments with your stylist. Opt for a neck and bang trim every two to three weeks, and a cut once a month. This is especially crucial if your bob is shorter in the back than the front, as the hair around the neck tends to grow in much quicker than the rest.
