The Bob

A bob that hits you at the jawline frames your face and is extremely flattering. There’s a lot of room for variation with the bob. If your hair is straight, you can go for a sleek look, or get lots of layers for an edgier look. If you have curly hair, the short style reins things in a bit while leaving you some length when you straighten your hair.

Queen Latifah's longish asymmetrical bob is a fantastic example of how gorgeous this style can look on a curvy body!

Getting your hair cut in a bob means that you won’t be able to pull your hair into a ponytail on hot days, but your hair will be off your neck anyway. And with a bob, your hair will fall into place without much styling, so you won’t need to put your hair up on lazy days.

With a shorter hairstyle like the bob, you’ll need to get your hair cut every 6 to 8 weeks. As soon as your hairstyle starts to lose its shape, make an appointment to get it cut. If you want to go a little longer between cuts, have your hairstylist cut your hair a little above your jawline. Starting with shorter hair will give you more time before it gets too long.
