#26: Sassy Stacked Bob

A modern take on a classic choppy hair cut that has been current since its creation almost 60 years ago, the graduated bob. It’s a timeless look that creates shape, movement, and volume when worn straight or wavy.

The highlight of this stacked bob is the disconnected ban that runs through the lower half of the haircut, adding extra texture for softness without the need for texturizing and potentially collapsing the shape.

Sometimes women who see this shape think their hair isn’t full enough for it, or ‘my hair won’t do that.’ This haircut creates the shape you’re lacking, and creates weight through the bottom outline, and volume around the head. All of these ingredients help with fine hair.

#27: Cute Textured Bob With Highlights

Consider a textured bob with choppy layering. Ask your stylist for added layers and different texturizing techniques to create body and movement in the hair.

To give the brown choppy bob hair the beachy wave look,  use a 1-inch curling iron in alternating directions for extra texture.

If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, go for a slightly longer styled bob so that when worn curly would look about this length, but when smoothed would be longer. Naturally smooth and fine hair would need extra attention with the curling iron.

A bob works for any face shape. Consult with your hairstylist about routine and different versions of a bob that would fit you best.

#33: Textured Bob for Thick Hair

This textured bob for thick hair has an excellent interior to this cut that creates shape and the texture inspires movement on thick hair.

Keep the weight higher on most face shapes to lift the sightline rather than drag it down. Your stylist should be mindful to keep the widest portion of the haircut away from the widest portion of the face shape for balance.

Style this bob with a round brush blow out, using a golfball-sized amount of L’anza Design Foam with one pump of L’anza Healing Oil mixed in. Finish by massaging a small dab of L’anza Taffy to give a sexy, undone look.
