The long bob has had its reign for quite a while, and albeit international beauty experts have been foreseeing its demise in the near future, here in the Philippines, it’s still very much in demand—a lot of celebrities, from Kim Chiu to Shaina Magdayao, have opted to trade their long locks for a variation of the long bob (or shoulder-length cuts). But that’s not to say that the long bob is the only ‘it’ cut of the moment—whether you want your ‘do long, short, and in between, there’s a hot celebrity hairstyle for you:
Less hair, less heat—less prep time in the morning, more time to devote to other things. Coleen Garcia and Kris Aquino’s cut of choice is practical yet easily transformable. It’s wash and wear but can be sleek when ironed out straight, slick when you apply some product, spirited when you scrunch it up to create some waves.
The Long Bob
Kathryn Bernardo has been sporting a long bob for some time now, and just recently Kim Chiu has also gone snip happy: She now has a shoulder-length cut, made chicer by subtle highlights. Shaina Magdayao went just a wee bit shorter—she plays around with her long bob, switching from straight to wavy/curly depending on her mood and the event she’s off to. If you want a ‘do update but is too scared to venture into short hair territory, the long bob is for you.
This is another low maintenance style (because the more disheveled it looks, the more free-spirited you’ll come off) that we think is here to stay even after the summer months. Scrunch your hair, twirl it, toss it, have fun with it—you’ll still look good no matter what, just like Anne Curtis, who got beachy waves and highlights in time for her Europe trip.
Long and straight hair
Still can’t bear to part with the hair you took very good care of and grew out for years? Good news: Long, straight hair will never really go out of style (Liza Soberano and Janella Salvador are still sticking to bouncy tresses), but of course you’d want to update your look from time to time right? Get your hair colored, permed, straightened—just make sure you go to a reputable salon and that you’ll give your treated hair the extra nourishment it would need after.
