The bob hairstyle involves almost infinite variations depending on the cut and styling technique. With a length falling somewhere between your earlobes and clavicle, the bob might be your cut of choice. A feathered bob haircut adds some fun and kicky layers to give your mane even more body and movement.
Have fun with the length of your bob, making it sassy or chic. A little shorter gets funky and a little longer gets more refined -- the bob remains regardless of length, though. Try blunt and choppy bangs or opt for a softer side-swept fringe that dusts your forehead instead. Both looks scream sexy and stylish.
It’s not the length of the bob, it’s the layers that give it a feathered look. A bob in all one length will look blunt, but layers throughout the style will create movement, volume, shape and distinction. What you do with the layers is up to you. Let them look choppy and funky or coax them into a sleeker ‘do. Both styles can be stylish and fun.
Products will help you design your feathered bob, whether you’re going for a shaggy or sleek style. If shaggy is the look, grab the texturizing cream and root lift spray. If sleek is more your thing, try an anti-frizz cream and volumizing spray. Whatever products you need, slather them onto your damp hair and work them in with your fingers to set up the style.
Grab the vented paddle brush and blow dryer to create your style. Pull the layers taut if you’re going for choppy or wrap them under if sleek is the look. You can also add more volume to your layers if you pull them out at a 90-degree angle to your head and dry them. Keep drying until your whole head is dry. A flat iron will help you finish the style, whether it’s choppy or sleek. You could even flip the ends up for even more sass. Arrange your tresses just so and spritz on the hair spray to lock them in tightly.
