Your medium bob doesn’t have to look plain and dated. Here are ideas on how to make it chic so you get good hair every day. 

When you’ve had long hair for so long, getting a bob seems like the perfect way to transition to short hair. Bobs come in different forms. You have your long bobs or lobs. You even have the choppy bob that allows you to play around with layers. If you’re not yet sure whether to cut your hair super short, or let it return to its original length in a few months, go for a medium bob. Here are ideas on how to sport this cool haircut.

1. Flip bob

Work your fly aways to your advantage by going for a flip bob hairstyle. Instead of ironing or blow drying the tips of your inwards, you do it outwards with the help of a roller brush. You can also use hair rollers to help you achieve this shape; again, just wrap your hair around the rollers away from your face.

Nail a blunt medium bob with straight hair that is free from fly aways. To achieve this, blow dry or iron your hair straight to perfection. Split ends are a no-no as well, so use shampoo and conditioner that makes your hair healthy and damage-free.

3. Blowout bob

Want to add volume to your bob? You can make shallow waves by blow drying your hair without its nozzle. Apply hair mousse first to help with the volume and to keep your hair free from frizz. Don’t forget to spritz heat protectant on your hair before blow drying to prevent heat damage.

Got naturally black hair? Flaunt it with a sleek bob. Use a flat iron to get rid of stray hairs, then iron the tips inwards to make your look polished. Finish by applying a drop of hair serum to make sure your hair stays frizz-free.

5. Dyed medium bob

Want a total hair revamp? Aside from getting a haircut, get a dye job as well. Now is the time to experiment with different hair colors. You don’t have to choose bold colors if you don’t want to. You can go for tried-and-tested but trendy shades like ash brown or cinnamon hair. Then, add texture to your hair by creating shallow waves or going for a tousled look.
