The hair was then curled with BaByliss pro curling tongs in size 32mm. Large pieces, approximately 2,5’’ were curled in different directions which gave body and movement to the style. Finally, the crown was backcombed with Schwarzkopf Professional Osis Dust. Then used Mattifying Powder to keep the volume locked in all day long.

This style is perfect for a long face as the volume is mainly kept to the sides.

I created this rich lavender by highlighting her hair to the palest blonde, leaving a more blended root. I used a custom toner to remove any gold and create a base of lilac before applying a semipermanent hair colour for vibrancy and longevity.

A leave-in conditioner with protein and moisture, as well as a deep conditioning masque, are super important for looks like this where the hair is pushed to its’ blondest shade. Sea salt spray offers weightless hold for this beachy look.

This style is well suited for lighter hair colours as it can be a long process to lighten dark hair to the desired pale canvas. A shattered bob like this is great for all hair textures- you can use texturing techniques to make your hair feel full by lightening it up and allowing it to separate, or alternately to de-bulk thick locks.

This client originally has a brighter base and plans to dye it darker because of her career. She wanted a colour that is not boring. I hence gave her a dark matte brown colour which compliments well with her neutral skin undertone and at the same time suitable for her career. She has classic bob haircut. I hence blow-dried with a round brush to give her a sleek finish.

Recommended Products

It is recommended to apply oil for a sleek finish. For a textured look, moulding wax is recommended.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type

This hairstyle is suitable for most face shapes; it just depends on the length of the sides. For clients with rounder face shape, it’s recommended to keep the sides longer, so the face shape looks elongated.

The hair can be hand dried by using your fingers as a comb and lifting the hair from side to side and straight up while blow drying. If your hair is curly or frizzy I would recommend using tools to smooth the hair then add a dry volume spray after for volume & texture, or this style could be worn curly. This mid-neck length haircut can be worn on any face shape; it can shorten a long face, lengthen a round face this is one of the reasons I love this bob so much.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type

This cut is best on someone with medium to thick density and fine hair.

For this look pictured, I wanted to achieve a simple hairstyle. I wanted the accessory to stand out, so we went with a simple hairdo – blowdry and straightened.

Recommended Products

Model pictured used Davine’s Oui oil to get a non-frizzy silky look. This oil is crucial, and a must-have for anyone who naturally has frizzy/medium wavy hair to help sculpt it for a blow dry.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type

I think with short straight hair you want more of round face shape to compliment the hair. I don’t think it is right for every face shape but you never really know until you go for it!

Straight Long Bob
