Short Straight Casual Bob Hairstyle





Added: 13th November 2017
This subtly flicked out bob is blow-waved perfectly to smooth down the top while turning the ends slightly out for a fabulous finish. The grown out bangs are worn swept across the forehead to frame the eyes and complete the overall look brilliantly. Regular trims are needed to maintain this hairstyle.

Our model looks flawless here in a chic and timeless bob with a graduated cut and flicked out ends. This cut is ideal for showing off her dainty facial features, especially her eyes and mouth. It also works well with her oval face shape. The side-swept grown out bangs provides her face with a nice cascading look while the rest of her hair maintains a smooth, sculpted shape that flicks to one side. The layered ends give her locks a healthy looking appearance and keeps her hair full of movement. This ‘do has lots of dimension to it and works with both casual and formal attire making it ideal for work and play.

This stylish cut is highlighted by our model's gorgeous dark blonde-brown or 'bronde' color with subtle blonde highlights and brunette lowlights throughout. Having an olive skin tone and dark eyes/eyebrows, this hair color is ideal for her coloring and brings out her best features, although she could pull off various brunette tones as well. To keep the color looking fresh, regular touch ups are needed to keep it from fading and/or becoming too brassy.

Styling




Mousse
1 . Apply Mousse

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.

Partright
2 . Part to the Right

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your right eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even right part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

Brushsmall
3 . Use a Small Radial Brush

A small radial brush is used on shorter hair types to add more body or in longer hair types to create curl. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.

Backflicks
4 . Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Back

Starting at the nape/back of the hair, place your brush on top of the section and blow-dryer down starting from the roots and using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Make sure to follow the brush with the blow-dryer in an outwards direction. If you like fuller flicks, hold the ends out and roll them up into the brush and apply the heat for longer.

Sidesflicks
5 . Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Sides

To blow-dry the sides, take out your first sections from the front and clip the rest of the hair up. Place your brush on top of the section, and starting from the roots, blow-dry down using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Continue this step until the hair is dry.

Crown
6 . Blow-dry the Crown

To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.

Bangsforwardleft
7 . Blow-dry Bangs Forward to the Left

To blow-dry your bangs to the side, clip the back and side sections up, leaving just your bangs out. Place your brush beneath your bangs, holding your hair to the side and remembering to hold the tension between your hair and brush. With your blow-dryer on a low setting, apply heat by starting at the roots and make sure to stretch your hair out to the ends. Repeat until your hair is dry.

Sidebacklongleft
8 . Blow-dry and Flick Left Side

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush on top of the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in an outwards direction with your blow-dryer following in front. Repeat this step and then once the roots are dry, drag the brush to the mid-lengths and then slowly turn the brush in an inwards direction, flicking it through the ends.

Sidesout
9 . Style Sides Out Using Wax

To get your sides to sit out, apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then working mainly on the ends, pinch them while dragging the hair in an out and upwards motion. Be careful not to overdo that wax or your result will be a flat and limp style.

Backdown
10 . Wax Hair Down at the Back

Apply some wax to your fingertips and then pull through the ends of your hair in a downward motion to achieve a sculptured look. Pinch clumps of hair in different directions for a messier result.

Hairsprayfinishing
11 . Apply Hairspray

To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
