The popularity of the bob haircut for several decades is associated both with its versatility and a large number of options, depending on the type of face and hair structure, but also with the possibility of creating a large number of everyday and festive hairstyles on its basis. To do this, it is important to know just a few basic principles of styling this popular haircut.
It is necessary
Hair dryer, round hairbrush, curlers, styling foam or other modeling product, hair clips, fixing product
Wash your hair. If the situation is such that there is not enough time for this, then it is the bob haircut that allows a specific "wet" option for styling hair into a hairstyle using a gel with the effect of wet hair. To do this, use a frequent comb to smoothly comb your hair back with or without a parting. If hair length allows, the ends at the back of the head can be rolled outward with a round brush and hair dryer.
Dry your hair with a towel. If there is a need to style already dried hair, it is advisable to slightly wet it from a spray bottle. Since a bob haircut in any case implies a voluminous back of the head, then use foam or mousse to create volume for styling. Apply a small amount of styling product to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the hair, paying particular attention to the root zone.
Decide on the styling method you like best. Styling your hair with a hairdryer will take less time, with curlers you can achieve a more permanent hairstyle. The best way to work with a hairdryer is to use a large round comb - a brush or a skeleton comb designed specifically to create root volume. The strands can be laid in any order - from the crown to the back of the head or vice versa.
Professionals usually dry their hair starting from the bottom strands. To do this, fix the bulk of the hair on the crown with a clip, separating a strand about 2-3 cm wide along the hairline at the back of the head.The strand is wound on a round brush or lifted with a skeleton comb so that the direction of its pulling is perpendicular to the scalp - this will create a larger strand. volume. Depending on the type of hairstyle chosen, shape the direction of curling of the strands - inward or outward with the tips.
Dry all the strands in a similar way, moving in the direction of the parting, or if it is more convenient for you, in the direction from the parting to the lower strands. After final drying, you have a bulky bob. If in the occipital zone after that you make a bouffant of several strands at the root, then this will further increase and fix the resulting volume.
If you chose curlers as a styling method, then wind your hair in the same order and wait until the hair is completely dry on the curlers. Remove the curlers. If your goal is a voluminous bob, comb the curls. If you would like to see elastic curls as a hairstyle, then carefully removing the curlers, disassemble the curls with your fingers, slightly shaking them.
Finish styling by highlighting a few strands around the face, fixing curled ends or styling bangs. If desired, secure your hair with varnish.
