 Short Wavy    Red Bob  Haircut with Blunt Cut Bangs - Visual Story


Layers are cut all around the back and sides of this bright copper mane to balance out the bounce and body of the natural waves, while the front has been smoothed forward to frame the eyes. This short easy style is best suited for those with naturally wavy hair and is perfect to frame a long face. Regular trims will help prevent split ends and product is needed to tame fly-away hair.

Our model looks gorgeous here in a short, fashion-forward hairstyle. This cut is ideal for ladies like her who want to work with their hair’s natural texture rather than against it. She has a long face and close-set eyes which are nicely framed by this ‘do. She also has a high, broad forehead that is camouflaged well by the thick fringe that has been styled forward. Her strong cheekbones are also enhanced by this short cut that is layered around her cheekbones. This hairstyle would look gorgeous blow-dried sleek and straight for a different look that would still flatter her oblong face shape, if she had extra styling time and craved a new variation of her 'do.

Our model is flaunting a gorgeous vibrant copper red hair color here with subtle golden highlights throughout the top layers. This looks fabulous with her cool, fair complexion and bright green eyes. The texture of the cut is highlighted by this color combo and finishes her 'do off with a chic and healthy look. Regular color refreshes are needed with red hair as this shade tends to fade the fastest out of all hair colors.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

step 1

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.

2. Part the Middle

step 2

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your nose 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 middle part. A middle part is a great way to make small, round face shapes appear longer and thinner.

3. Use a Small Radial Brush

step 3

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.

4. Blow-dry Bangs Forward

step 4

When blow-drying your bangs forward, clip your hair back leaving only your bangs out. Position your bangs evenly in your brush, taking the hair in a forward direction. Blow-dry from roots to ends, keeping the tension consistent, and evenly distribute heat over the whole section of hair that you are working on. Repeat until the hair is dry. This will stop any frizz that may occur.

5. Scrunch Dry Hair with a Blow-dryer and Fingers

step 5

Use your hand to scrunch the hair as you blow-dry. Remember to keep the blow-dryer on a low speed and heat setting and to leave some moisture in your hair.

6. Scrunch Gel-Wax Through Hair with Fingers

step 6

Apply gel-wax to your fingertips and then tilt your head forward and scrunch your hair.

7. Style Bangs Forward Using Moulding Cream

step 7

Apply a small amount of moulding cream to your fingertips and then using your fingers, rake through your bangs to the ends for hold and texture.
