The Bob

The bob is having something of a moment right now with more and more of fashions elite like Beyonce, Karlie Kloss, Jennifer Lawrence and Tamara Taylor opting for shorter tresses it’s a great time to embrace the cut.

Originating during World War I as women joined the workforce and no longer had time for pin curls and straightening irons. Cropped hair is still seen as a badge of freedom and independence for women. So whether you want something chic and classic or a cool Beatnik look, think Jennifer Laurence & Edie Campbell, there’s a cut to suit you.



Ollie Blackaby, Artistic Ambassador tells us his favourites;

The Undone Bob = Ideal for the girl on the go, a bit rebellious with a dose of care free-tude.
Uber trendy right now the bad bob breaks the traditional bob rules of precision in place of an imperfect cut where the hair is razor cut to enhance the undone texture to the hair and help it to separate and kick out. Perfect if you have medium – thick, wavy and straight hair.



We love L’Oréal Professionnel tecni.ART BEACHWAVES -ideal for styling with attitude!


Cool & Classic = Epitome of chic, with a beautiful, sophisticated and flattering shape.


Cut in an A-line shape the classic bob is super flattering; if you like a little length opt for long pieces at the front to frame the face. The build up of weight in this cut will help hair sit correctly, so it’s perfect if you have fine or unruly hair.

We love Kerastase Styling Gloss Appeal – for a serious amount of shine and a weightless finish.
