Trend alert: the curly bob

Move over wobs and straight bobs, the curly bob is taking over. Read on to learn more about this trending hairstyle and how to pull it off.

The curly bob is very voluminous (even more so than the wavy bob!) and very feminine: it elegantly shows off the neck, it highlights the cheekbones and the curls are bouncy and round. Though it may seem like the ideal hairstyle, there are still a few things to keep in mind so that you can make the style work for you.

If you have naturally curly hair

Embracing your natural texture is very ''in'' this season, however it's important for your hairdresser to give you the right cut so that you can really show off your beautiful curls. They'll be able to determine the length that would look best for your face shape and how voluminous your bob should be.

If you have naturally straight hair

For all the girls out there with naturally straight hair, you can still rock the curly bob, there's just a bit more work involved. You'll have to get a layered cut and then use your curling iron to create the curls (just don't forget to apply a heat protectant product first!). However the advantage of getting this kind of haircut is that you can have fun playing around with a lot of different styles, like the wavy bob – you'll never get bored!

How to take care of your curly bob

It's recommended to see your hairstylist every four to eight weeks for a trim. Naturally curly haired girls should follow a special haircare routine adapted to their locks and girls with straight hair should make sure to use hair masks to offset the damage from hot tools. And don't forget to apply a bit of Bouncy and Tender Dual Stylers from L'Oréal Professionnel before styling your curly bob for the best curls ever!
