A cute bobbed hairstyle is hard to beat in terms of style and versatility. Girls with thick tresses have one of the best textures around when it comes to working this timeless style. Add choppy layers to remove excess bulk and make your ‘do easier to manage. Whether you prefer to wear your locks tousled, textured or asymmetric, the only way you should be wearing those thick tresses right now is beautifully bobbed.

Cute and Choppy

A textured choppy bob is fun and flirty way to wear your thick tresses. Choppy layers help to remove bulkiness and make your hair easier to handle in the morning. Ask your stylist for a choppy bob with razored, tapered layers throughout. Wear this bob chin-length or longer for a look that you can work at almost any occasion. Team your textured bob with layered, angled bangs to pull this look together. Use styling wax to tease those layers and accentuate your choppy cut.

Teased and Tousled

Famous fashionistas such as Keira Knightley and Alexa Chung know that a teased and tousled bob is a seriously sexy option forday or night. Ask your stylist for bob that falls between your chin and shoulders with lots of long, soft layers. Use a curling iron to create a sexy tousled look in a matter of minutes. Give your locks a little extra oomph for evening occasions and lightly backcomb the roots for added fullness and body. Finish with a shine spray to really ensure your locks turn heads all night long.

Uneven and Asymmetric

If you prefer to wear your thick tresses with a little added quirk, a cute asymmetric cut should be your go-to option. Ask your stylist for a bob that hits just above your shoulders and becomes gradually shorter at the back. Throw in some textured layers throughout for added softness. Wear this ‘do sleek, straight, wavy or curly when you want to change things up. Add shorter, face-framing strands around the front or team with choppy straight-across bangs to highlight pretty peepers.

A Lovely Lob

Keep things long, soft and on-trend and work the latest must-have ‘do -- the lob. The lob, or grown-out bob, falls just below the shoulders and consists of soft layers. Let your bob grow out naturally to get this look for yourself. If your locks are longer, ask your stylist for a lob cut that falls just below your shoulders. Regular trims every six to eight weeks will ensure your ends stay in tip-top condition. Gals that rock a lob can enjoy experimenting with braids, updos and chignons that are not available to their shorter-haired sisters.
