Do you love bob hair cut?

I see bob hair is in fashion now, at least from my point of view. well there are basically three bobs. A The most conservative, the sleek one-length cut is always in style. This sophisticated cut can be trimmed to a length that is attractive to almost any face shape. Style this cut by applying a light volumizing gel or mousse to damp hair and then blowing it dry with a large round brush. If your hair needs more encouragement to bend, use a large diameter curling iron, (about one and one-half inches) to curve the ends under. A flirty variation is the flippy Bob, layered in the bottom two inches and worn with texturized bangs. The secret to this cut is to take out enough of the bulk at the bottom to allow it to flip out but leave enough so that it doesn’t lose its signature line. This style is also very attractive when allowed to slightly curve under close to the neck. Style this cut as you would the one-length bob except using your large curling iron to turn the ends out slightly. More layering will release your natural curl to form this curly Bob. To style this look, generously apply a curl encouraging gel or mousse. Dry it using a diffuser or just naturally while you scrunch it. Be careful to keep the curls big and chunky. Too much combing or manipulation will separate the curls and cause a frizzy appearance. You can use a curling iron to direct some of the curls toward your face. No matter which Bob hair cut you choose, it should be shiny and natural looking. Keep your style simple and easy to manage.

I have the flippy bob and I love it. I can't stand my hair hanging in my face so I pull it back and secure it. I'm 50-years-old and was having trouble finding something that would suit me. I'm to young yet for the old-lady pin curls all over my head, yet I'm old enough that I don't want something that makes me look like I'm trying to look 20. I carry weight in my face, not to mention some wrinkles and gravity is doing her job pretty well. I take a brush blower when my hair is almost dry and start rolling it upward, my hair isn't thick, but I have a lot of it, and I have a lot of body. When I'm done I have a really bouncy doo with a lot of body that lasts all day without any gels or hairspray, with the exception of my bangs, I do have to starch them into place. I can't ware bangs because on me it drags my face down and makes me look older, it's better to have every thing kind of moved back off of my face. I secure the sides with nondescript barrettes that blend in with my hair. The girl who cuts my hair gets a lot of compliments on the cut.
