Whether you have a chin-length bob or a medium bob, you can add fringe to it, especially if you have a long face. To make your look more exciting, create messy curls to go with your straight blunt bangs to play with two different textures.

Then, keep your curls well-moisturized with Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Blooming Color Shampoo. This eco-friendly shampoo isn’t just for color-treated hair. Its murumuru butter can also keep your curly hair from getting dry.
