Helpful Links for Girls With Bobs

how to style a bob, textured bob, tortoiseshell hair color, modern bob, balayage highlights, brunette highlights

I’m having lots of fun playing with my shorter ‘do. I hesitated chopping my hair for so long — even when I really wanted to — because I worried it would be too hard to style and manage. But it’s so easy!

Fortunately for my lazy hair skills, the modern bob is all about messy undone texture. My daily styling routine is basically the same as my lob days, but with less hair (which means less time!). My favorite styling product right now is Joico Hair Shake, a texturizing spray with a liquid-to-powder formula that boosts volume and creates cool piecey texture with soft, flexible hold. If I don’t have time to curl or flat-iron, I work a little Dirt Texturizing Paste into the ends so they aren’t frizzy.

If you’re considering a chop, or you’ve already joined the club, here’s a handful of helpful links full of styling inspiration and helpful tutorials:

  1. This looks so cute, My hair isn’t short but I need to play with doing something like this on my medium length hair! :) Thanks for the inspiration. -H

  2. This is perfect!! I just chopped off my hair due to severe breakage from where I was living (moved now, luckily!). But I have no idea what to do with shoulder length hair. Great links!!
