Every year, without fail, I get an urge to wear super-long extensions. Maybe it’s because I can’t seem to grow my hair longer than chest length myself, but I love to clip in extra length every now and again. However, despite my slight reliance on extensions, I always come back to medium-length bob hairstyles. This length is so easy to manage and suits most face shapes and hair textures too. It’s no wonder the length is so popular.
I think because it’s such an easy-to-wear length, I forget how fun it is to style and play with. I usually plait my hair before bed, unravel for light waves in the morning, and that’s it. So I trawled the web for some style inspiration to revive my love for my bob, and I was not disappointed. Here are the best styles to try right now.
Twists add a twist to the tendril trend. If your hair is layered, you should be able to plait/twist to the end and use gel to secure, but if you have a blunt cut, you’ll need clear elastics at the end.
I definitely find that using a straightener to create beachy waves achieves this high-gloss finish more than when I use a tong. This comes from smoothing down the cuticle as you style. Add a touch of light oil at the ends for extra sheen.
