Super short bob: THE haircut to kick off 2018

2018 is a fresh, new year, so why not start 2018 with a snip and create a clean cut in the form of a super short bob? Guaranteed to create impact, this low-maintenance, high fashion style will bring you flying in to 2018.

Why bobs are big news

If there was a hairstyle that were to sum up 2017, we think it would be mid-length ombré waves, what about you? Moving into 2018, we're looking forward to something a little different and unexpected, something daring and edgy. Cue this super sleek short bob. Perfect.

Why do we love bobs? Because not only are they great for those of us who prefer easy-to-manage styles that cut down drying time, but they're far more versatile than people expect. Think tousled, messy curls with bangs, asymmetric angles, crazy colors... the sky's the limit!

Will you suit a bob?

Because of the variety, every face shape has a bob that will suit them. However, really round-shaped faces should perhaps steer clear of very short styles, and those with a strong jaw line should always opt for a side part to soften the angles. Oval-shaped faces can rock any kind of bob, so get snipping! Can't imagine what the super-short bob will look like on you? Why not use L'Oréal Professionel's online tool; Style My Hair, and recreate and look, color or cut, to work out what's exactly right for you.

Styling your sleek and short bob

To really pull of this ultra-short and shiny bob, your hair needs look glossy and healthy, however even if your hair is more of the rebellious type, don't write off this chic bob: once you've got your new haircut, you simply need to arm yourself with the right styling tools and products.

For long-lasting smooth and straight hair, ask your L'Oréal Professionnel stylist about the in-salon Steampod treatment , a steam-based straightening process that lasts longer and is less damaging than a regular hot iron.

When it comes to at-home styling, try the Dual Stylers Sleek & Swing by Tecni.ART . This blow-dry gel-cream ensures smooth, controllable hair that loses none of its volume: perfect for a short bob that doesn't fall flat! Remember to finish your styling with a quick spritz of the Tecni.ART Air Fix hairspray for extra shine and hold.
