With summer looming over the corner, the spotlight turns to shorter strands (think: less sweaty hair moments). Chopping off those long locks, however, can either be fun and exciting or downright terrifying. For those falling in the latter category, one only needs to take a quick look at how Anne Curtis makes a strong case for the bob.
Whether tucked behind one ear or beachy and tousled, Anne shows us just how versatile the bob is, convincing you that now’s a better time than ever to take the plunge.
1. With this asymmetrical cut, Anne positively exudes rocker glam. Achieve the look by angling the front section of your bob slightly longer with a slight taper to the back. To style, apply a volumizer to wet hair and blow dry with a paddle brush. Work some hair wax on the ends to create textured strands.
Anne’s sleek slicked back high shine bob is the epitome of elegance. For a ‘do just as polished, blow dry hair pin straight and flick the ends a tad with a straightening iron. Work a few drops of pomade into strands for a glossy finish.
This retro look has Anne channeling old Hollywood glamour. Steal some red carpet ready locks by using a curling iron to set hair into pin curls. Brush out curls to soften the waves and set with some spray. Comb hair into a side part and tuck the other side behind one ear.
Geek chic becomes Anne with this semi-rumpled, lived-in style. The deep side part and slight ruffle at the ends keeps the look from being overly matronly. Pull off this matte coif by spritzing some salt spray into towel dried hair. Blow dry hair on low setting while using fingers to tousle hair for a charmingly disheveled finish.
Anne keeps it simple and sweet with a feathery bob with just the right amount of layered texture, striking the perfect paradox between soft yet edgy. Flip out the ends by with a barrel iron and work in some texturizer for some feathery, nape framing tresses.
So sleek. So perfect. So Anne. This super sharp bob proves that a stick-straight finish screams sexy sophisticate. Score these strands by taking large sections of hair and blowing them out smooth and straight. Perfect the look by running a straightening iron through strands for added smoothness.
