The bob haircut: straight vs. beach waves

  • v/s
Which style is your favorite: straight or wavy?

One of the hottest haircut trends at the moment is the bob and its longer sister the lob (long bob).

But how would/do you wear yours: in a chic straight style, or loose and lovely beach waves? Vote here on Match the Look!

Straight to the point

The hairstyle: The blunt-cut straight bob is so on-trend right now, with one of its variants, glass hair, the latest celebrity obsession.

The colors: A straight bob haircut looks great with any color, but it's important that it looks glossy, not greasy. If you have thin, limp hair, use a dry shampoo like the Tecni.ART Morning After Dust.

What the editors say: Think about your face shape before getting the cut. Long face shapes should opt for a shorter bob, while strong square and heart shapes look great in a longer, shoulder-level version.

Jump in the waves

The hairstyle: A get-up-and-go hairstyle, tousled waves give bounce and character to your look. Flick it into a casual side part to get that effortless artistic vibe.

The colors: Wherever we see tousled waves, we immediately think sunkissed highlights that wrap around the waves just where the light would hit. As your hair stylist about a subtle balayage to lift your look.

What the editors say: You don't have to stick to natural shades, however – we love hints of cool pastel colors down the lengths that disappear and reappear in the waves.
