Coining a new word here for the celebs this fall who have been spotted wearing the cutest updated bobs that you can show clients to switch them up from long hair to chin-length. A great bob flatters young and older clients alike and plays up texture to give clients lots of style options.
Her radiant red in smooth waves gives Christina Hendricks an October glow and highlights her peachy compexion. With less dense hair, Michelle Dockery wears her bob in straighter, perfectly face-framing fashion.
Maria Bello and Evangeline Lilly are going with a natural-texture look that affords colorists a lot of creativity in color placement.
Sigourney Weaver and Miroslava Duma embrace their texture in a shorter bob.
From the Wella Professionals team, here’s a how-to for a great bob adaptable to a wide age range and a lot of face shapes.
STEP 1: Starting in the occipital area with a vertical channel of hair held out from the head, point-cut to create a textured guideline.
STEP 2: Using the same point-cut method, follow the guideline on either side to the back of the ear.
STEP 3: Use a small channel from the completed back section as a guideline for the top section, and create a square layer.
STEP 4: Blend in any corners and weight lines by point-cutting around the curve of the head.
STEP 1: Apply Wella Professionals Extra Volume Mousse and blow-dry the hair using a large round brush to create volume and wave.
STEP 2: Continue drying the front area, maintaining the same movement created at the back.
STEP 3: When dry, set with large velcro rollers to support the movement. Spray with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Hairspray to set. Remove rollers and brush out. Apply a small amount of Wella Professionals Oil Reflections through the hair to add extra shine. Finish with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Hairspray
