A shaggy bob with curtain bangs is a short-length choppy haircut with layers and fringe that frame the face. If your hair naturally has some wave or curl, this style may last for days without further effort.

Kell Wlodarczak, a hairdresser in Michigan, has been a delight to chat with about this hairstyle. Here are their recommendations if you want to adopt the look.

💡 Key Things to Know First

  • For a softer look, have your stylist add some texturizing to the ends.
  • Find out how to quickly and easily move your hair out of your face when needed.
  • Dry shampoo and texture spray are your best friend.
  • You may emphasize the movement and texture of straight, smooth hair by curling it away from the face.
