A chin-length bob for fine hair is a short-length cut that boosts volume and creates fullness. Depending on your hair texture, it can be low-maintenance and only needs minimal styling effort.
Hairstylist Darian Dimauro of Boston, MA, shares her ultimate tip for wearing a bob.
“Make sure you’re ready for it,” Dimauro points out. “Bobs aren’t for everyone, so prepare for the commitment. Seek your trusted stylist’s opinion on whether it’s a good fit for you.”
Each bob cut suits a specific face shape and jawline. You just have to understand your facial structure. “Altering the cut to compliment women’s features can make or break the look,” says Dimauro.
The drawback of having a chin-length short hairstyle is you can’t pull it back into a ponytail or bun. You’ll need a few clips or pins to keep the strands out of your face.
Styling the hair is essential to maximize the full potential of the chop. The proper layers and texture will make thin hair appear thicker, but styling it will add flair to your look.
Learn styling techniques from your hairdresser. Ask what products and tools they recommend to achieve your preferred style.
