Bobs look so chic when they are worn straight and sleek, but what if you want to mix it up a bit and add some funky waves? Adding waves or curls to a bob adds instant volume and fun-factor, so if you want to add some texture to your bob, here are a few ways to do it:
• Curling wand: The curling wand creates spirals in the lengths of the hair, and the ends are left slightly more straight than a traditional curling iron. This is the perfect tool for creating beachy windblown waves that look edgier than curls made by hot hair rollers or curling irons. Olivia Thirlby demonstrates this technique with her waved bob in this photo. For best results, choose a wand that has a 1" or smaller barrel.
• Or, if you want a flat crimped look, braid your hair while it is wet and let it dry naturally. This will give you a high-texture 'do similar to Courtney Davis' hair in this photo. This waving method is best for ladies who want a bold, edgy look.
