Hair Texture Matters

When it comes to hair texture, Jerrick suggests that fine to medium hair that is straight to slightly wavy works best with the slob. However, if you have thicker hair or some curl, you may have to fight your natural texture to stay smooth and not too poofy.

Face Shape Considerations

Jerrick recommends that you consider your face shape when getting a slob haircut. Think about what features you want to highlight and what features you want to diminish. For example, if you have a square face, cutting your hair to your jawline will accentuate that jawline. If you want more balance, opt for a little bit more length. If you have a rounder face, get a very soft angle to have more balance with the face shape. Since there are no layers, Jerrick feels that oval and heart face shapes have less to consider.

Styling Tips and Tricks

Great styling starts with proper prep, says Jerrick. She recommends Redken Volume Injection to wash and condition fine texture hair, Redken All Soft for medium-texture hair, and Redken Frizz Dismiss for thicker and/or hair with a little curl pattern. Jerrick’s go-to styling products for fine hair with a slob are Redken Quick Blowout paired with Redken Big Blowout. She opts for Redken Quick Blowout for medium-texture hair paired with Redken All Soft Moisture Restore. Finally, for thicker hair and hair with a little curl pattern, she suggests Redken Quick Blowout with Redken Frizz Dismiss Instant Deflate Oil-in-serum.

Jerrick recommends using the Sam Villa 3 in 1 Blow Dry Hot Brush to style your hair after applying products. If your hair texture requires a flat iron, use Redken Thermal Spray 11 Low Hold to protect up to 450 degrees while adding shine. These styling tools are super user-friendly and great for anyone with a slob haircut to use.

#2: Sleek Effortless Chin Bob

Here’s a sleek, effortless chin-length bob. For a simple yet sophisticated bob, chin length and sleek are always in style. A classic style that works great for thin, medium, and thick hair. Depending on hair density, you may need extra weight removal if you’re thicker. Thinning out to keep the style slimmer, it will hold its shape beautifully with the thick hair on its side.

#3: Middle-Parted Short Fine Hair

Check out this middle-parted short bob on fine hair. The power bob is a statement when you cut your hair off before or after a life-changing event. For those with fine hair, try a sleek bob (Slob) for fullness around the perimeter. Middle parts work great for those who want to elongate the face shape and love a strong statement look.

#7: Straight Chin-Length Bob for Thin Hair

Make the most of your thin hair in a straight chin-length bob. A blunt cut is perfect for fine hair textures, making it the thickest. Know where you want your part to live when you get your cut. You will have an overhang if your part with one-length hair tries to move you. You’ll want to use a volumizing product Pureology’s Style + Protect Instant Levitation Mist, to add volume to your strands.

#8: Slightly Graduated Slob

This is a popular look if you like short hair in the warmer months. The graduation in the back keeps the shape and the hair off your neck to keep you cool! Talk with your stylist at your next appointment to keep this look frizz-free.

#9: Short Vanilla Blonde Center-Parted Hair

If you love a center part, consider a short vanilla blonde bob. The blunt cut with the center part creates a sleek, symmetrical, and fashion-forward look to the hair. Lightening the hair and creating a vanilla blonde brings light and warmth to the face. If you have naturally darker hair, try opting for a more caramel shade of blonde for your bob. For a more playful and fun look, try tucking one side behind your ear to give the illusion of an asymmetrical cut.

#10: Straight Jawline Bob

Consider the classic shape of a straight jawline bob. The current bob trend is a clean line the same length all around, minus a fringe, for a strong visual impact. I recommend getting your part in the correct spot when you get your cut. This way, you won’t have any trouble with overhanging edges. Your blowout will be simple with a large round brush and a smoothing lotion. The jawline bob suits most face shapes and will reward you with its beautiful style.

#11: Short One-Length Cut with Straight Ends

Choose a short one-length slob cut with straight ends if you have a long or oval face shape. Or pick this cut if you want to create a fuller look to your hair and face. Opting for a chin-length bob helps to create the illusion of width. And it can help to create balance in an oval or long face shape. The hair being one length also creates a fuller and more voluminous look to the hair. This is great for fine to medium hair. Straightening the ends adds a clean, blunt line to the haircut, which gives the cut a dramatic look. Try getting your hair cut into a bob with a center part. This will ensure that you can wear it with a center, left, or right part, and it will still balance.

You’ll love the no-nonsense shape of a medium-rounded bob for thick hair. The shape is super stylish, and the middle part is trending. You’ll want one-length layers to create the most prominent bob-line. Thick hair ladies will easily style the shape with a round brush. A flat iron can manage unruly textures, and try Redken’s Shine Flash Glass for extra luster.

#13: Modern Slob with Invisible Layers

A modern slob with invisible layers is a stylish shape with a bit of softness. Ask your stylist to point-cut the long layers to create movement and soften the blunt line. This technique will allow some swing on the top layer and help your cut last longer. The minimal layers added will also allow you to move your part off to the side if desired. Consider adding curl with a 3/4 inch iron and a light hairspray for versatility.

#18: Short Bob with Full-Blonde Highlights

Consider a short bob with full blonde highlights if you have fine or medium hair. It makes the hair appear more full. Highlighting the hair causes the cuticle layer to get plumped or roughened. This adds texture and volume to the hair, creating the illusion of fuller and thicker hair. If you have naturally darker hair, opt for a root shadow so your hair grows out with no strong lines of demarcation. To upkeep this cut, I recommend a 6-8 week trim touch-up to maintain the length and style.
