One good thing about having a bob is hat you don’t need to do a lot if you want to pull your hair back. Simply brush your back, getting rid of your hair part, then spritz hairspray to finish off a sexy and sleek summer look. This goes well with dresses, but you can also definitely rock this look at work.

3. Side-parted straight bob

Want some oomph with your bob? Get a fringe. Bangs go well with both chin-length and long bobs. Just go for see-through or wispy bangs for a more relaxed, summer-ready look.

Editor’s tip: Keep your bangs from getting extra oily this summer. Refresh your fringe by spraying TRESemmé Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo in the middle of the day. 

5. A-line bob

What is an A-line bob? It is a type of bob haircut that’s shorter at the back and longer at the front side. If you want your bob to fall at chin-level or just below your chin without some strands pricking your nape, the A-line bob is perfect for you. Nail this look by making sure your hair is free from frizz and fly aways.

6. Blonde bob

Get a new color along with a new haircut this summer. If you’ve had dark tresses all your life, why don’t you try going blonde? Blonde isn’t only for fair-skinned women. If you have morena skin, you can go for warmer blonde shades like honey, ash blonde, and even bronde. Just give your hair extra TLC because bleaching alone already damages your locks; what more with a lot of sun exposure during the summer.

7. Straight lob

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair nourished and well-moisturized by applying Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream before you leave the house. Feel free to reapply in the middle of the day to refresh your locks.
