The side-swept wavy bob with bangs: soft yet strong!

How do you make a classic, must-have hairstyle into something unique? By adding an extra element, such as bangs, or side-swept sections! To be at the forefront of the bob trend, without losing its original appeal, we're giving a nod to the bob with waves and side-swept bangs!

A soft and graphic bob

You might not have heard of it before, but the "wob" (wavy bob) has become a must-have hairstyle these past seasons. Unfortunately, the more daring fashionistas quickly get bored of styles they consider "too mainstream". The solution is simple: to spice up a wavy bob, wear it with a side part and bangs. Balanced against the softness of the waves, this graphic detail creates asymmetric movement and brings back the bounce to your bob!

A wob with bangs: a bob for all

Whatever the shape of your face or color of your hair, a sideswept wavy bob with bangs will look great. Even if this short wavy cut is more easily worn on medium to thick hair, even the finest, straightest hair can get the look. Delphine Courteille, a hair stylist for L'Oréal Professionnel, recommends using texturizing products from the Beach Waves range, which will help you recreate the necessary volume needed for this gorgeous asymmetric wavy bob. For more inspiration, look to Australian It-girl Nicole Warne: the professional blogger is currently sporting this season's hottest hairstyle!

Before making waves, this bob needs layers

Don't be deceived by the simple-looking curves on this chic, floaty bob - it can't be created on a whim! The secret to the beauty of this bob lies in the precise and professional layering of your hair. Whether you have naturally curly hair already, or poker straight locks, this first step is key.
