The Length of Hair

The long bob can hang somewhere between your chin and collar bone, some versions are more graduated which should be subtle.

The Layers

They must be invisible and if you create too many they become choppy. The secret is mostly one length but still has movement thanks to the texture.

The Texture

Bends and waves is what makes the haircut sexy and modern blunt hair tips work well but sometimes the shattered, asymmetrical ends so long as they are well blended give the haircut an effortless vibe. Hair with more than one direction requires hot tools and styling spray to channel a sophisticated minimalist or Boho Beach look or a classy Hollywood look.

Sleek Style

Blow out the Hair and get the flat iron as close to the roots as possible and drag it down to the ends for strong finish.

The Tousled

Scrunch while drying, then use a flatiron with curved edges, take one inch sections and use the iron to create ā€˜sā€™ shaped bends. You can also alternate with a curling iron to vary the texture.

Curly Look

Start curling hair strands around eye level, then after removing each section into a pincurl, then spray with hairspray Let the hair cool and then shake and go.

Hair designed with edginess to spare is bold, balanced and head turning, a little bit of urban and avant-garde.
