A wavy bob with bangs is a short to medium-length haircut with a fringe to suit most face shapes. The chop is styled with waves for volume and body that prevent the hair from appearing lifeless.
Australia-based hairdresser Kate De Pasquale shares a few tips on this hair idea. She suggests preparing yourself with the daily styling and regular trims this look needs.
“Most fringes take a little bit of work on wash day and a bit of refreshing in the morning. That being said, get a cut with your hair type and lifestyle in mind,” De Pasquale states.
A thorough consultation with a professional is necessary to ensure you get the proper cut of bangs.
De Pasquale explains, “Bangs must not look too wide nor too thin. There’s a delicate balance in creating a fringe, and there’s no traditional way to go about it. Consult your stylist and consider your face shape and hair density.”
Plan your salon visits well. Ask your hairdresser how often you should come back to the salon for trims. Moreover, learn how to style a bob cut, especially the bangs.
