5 Ways to Wear A Bob Cut

A woman who has a bob can wear it in the following ways:

  • Tightly curled
  • With loose waves
  • Put it up for special occasions
  • Wear it tied back in a ponytail

If you are want to know how to wear a bob cut, here are some exciting ideas for you to try:

Retro Look for a Short Bob

First apply a holding gel to your hair. Brush all the hair from one side over to the other side of your head and secure in place with a decorative pin. Curl the ends with a curling iron and allow the curls to tumble forward over your eyes. Hold the curls in place with a light spray.

Angled Bob

Ask your hairstylist to give you a cut that is longer in the front but shorter in the back. If you have thick hair, ask for a layered cut at the back. Apply mousse to the hair after washing and blow dry using a large round brush for lift. Curl the edges under so there is a smooth look created.

Soft Waves

Apply mousse to the hair after washing it. Use a curling iron vertically to create spiral ringlets in the hair. Allow the ringlets to cool before you handle them. Comb through using your fingers to separate the hair into soft waves.

Slick Bob

Apply a styling gel to the hair while it is still wet. Using a wide spaced comb, comb the hair straight back at the top and sides. Allow the hair to dry without disturbing it. This will create a very modern, hard-edged look to the hair.

Romantic Curls

Set the hair while it is still wet using bobby pins to secure large curls. Allow to dry thoroughly. Comb the curls out gently when dry and spray lightly to hold the style. This is a good look for women who have slightly angular or hard features. It creates a softer look for the hair.
