Get ready to up the glamour with this dazzling bob, which promises to put you centre-stage. You’ll want to ask your stylist for a slightly longer, shoulder-grazing cut, styled with a deep side parting. Mix warm shades of blonde for a honey blonde hue and blowdry with a round brush to create bouncy curls and uplifted roots.

Tip: To help complement your facial features, opt for an array of blonde highlights. For a flattering look, ask your colourist to use the lightest shades of blonde on the front sections of hair to frame your face.

4. Platinum Blonde Bob

Gone are the days where we keep our roots hidden! That’s right, we’re urging you to embrace your roots and let them show in their full glory. The contrast looks stunning with a blonde bob, giving the impression of more volume and vibrancy.

For a messy and textured look, spritz some texturising hairspray through your hair. Then, use your fingers to scrunch the product in and create movement by gently tousling and pulling it in different directions.

9. Platinum Ponytail Bob

Believe it or not, bobs can work a treat when pulled back into a half-up hairstyle, like this gorgeous ponytail. Remember to keep your ponytail low at the back and leave a few strands free at the front. It really doesn’t get any chicer than this quick-fix hairstyle.

10. Shag Cut Bob

Featuring choppy layers of varying lengths, a shag cut gives the illusion that your hair is shorter than it actually is – so it’s a great option if you’re not quite ready to go for a full-on bob. Why not throw a long, parted fringe into the mix, which makes for an effortless, bedhead finish.

11. Warm Toned Bob with Volume

To create this gorgeous, bouncy bob, curl the ends of your hair with a curling tong for definition, then sprinkle some of texturising dust throughout your mane. Finish by backcombing the roots and you’ll achieve a seriously dramatic lift.

12. Curly Bob

Curly hair girls, unite! We’re here to normalise sporting a bob cut with your natural hair texture. The good news is, a blonde bob will get a major volume boost from the coils in your strands, while the short length is easy to maintain and go about your day with. So basically, its a win-win situation!

13. Wispy Lob

Possibly the most versatile of all the blonde bob variations, it can be worked and styled in so many ways, thanks to its longer length. We love the look just how it’s meant to be – down, wavy and with your natural roots peeping through for some colour variation.


14. Yellow Toned Bob

Did you know yellow toned bobs are also super hot right now? Once your stylist develops the right hue for you, you can style it at home by lightly curling your locks for added movement.

There you have it, a blonde bob look you can sport every day.
