WE ARE LOVING THE SHOULDER LENGTH BOB FOR WINTER...
By definition a bob is short and relatively blunt, but as for the exact length – that’s open to interpretation. If you’re not game to go for an ultra-short flapper style bob, or even a chin-length one, then the option for 2013 is the shoulder length bob.
The look right now is a shoulder-length cut with blunt edges that gives off a bob vibe without taking off too much length.
HOW TO STYLE IT: If the hair sits just longer than the shoulders, one great style is to let it flick up a little at the ends. A bit of body and bounce, and you’ve got a hint of retro flair seeping into your look. For a shoulder-length bob that sits beautifully when side-swept and curled up gently at the ends, you can use either a round brush and blowdryer, or some hot rollers. Of course, if your hair is naturally curly there’s more work involved in achieving this style so be prepared to do some blow-drying and/or straightening,
or to rock some messy waves.
You may have also noticed plenty of models and celebrities are again returning to hairstyles with bangs. A fringe / bangs is one great way of keeping a mid-length hairstyle interesting. It could be a more wispy style (like Anja Rubik’s, above), or even better, a set of thick, blunt bangs to match with your blunt-cut shoulder-length bob.
