Love the length

Think that an A-line bob means forgoing length? Think again! This long A-line lob is the ultimate look for girls who still demand length for updos, yet is just as dramatic in its cut. Shorter at the back, this bob graduates its way down in length at the front and finishes by gently curling inwards, helping to perfectly frame the face! Credit: @hairbycathalloran

Editor’s tip: This one is all about the finish, so to get the gleam, finish with a few pumps of the TIGI S-Factor Silky Smooth Moisture Serum, on dry hair. This serum will work to tame flyaways and hide split ends, and remember: a little does go a long way.

Awesome asymmetric fringes

With the A-line cut, the look is all about the angles – so we just love how this style takes its shape to a whole new level, with an asymmetric fringe. Although a sleek bob is traditionally coupled with a straight blunt bangs, this fierce fringe serves to update the style with an alternative edge. Credit: @thefactoryhair

Editor’s tip: Speak to your stylist about stand-out fringe angles and make sure you invest in a holding spray, that is guaranteed to hold it in place all day long. We love the VO5 Classic Styling Ultimate Hold Hairspray, which dries quickly and holds until you opt to brush or wash it out!

Who runs the world? Curls!

You’ve gotta love a bob for its endless versatility! With this style, you can forget everything you know about bobs only being sleek and straight, and instead start to dream of rocking undone, tousled curls. And if you really want to make this style your own, opt for a bold hair colour to boot, and watch as you have heads turning wherever you go! Credit: @hairfatima

Editor’s tip: If you want to channel this relaxed look and create some lived-in waves, stock up on the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Sea Salt Spray. It won’t just help you create curves, but will also emphasise your bobbed hair’s volume and viciousness.

Switch to a side parting

An A-line bob is all about the structure, working from short at the back, to long at the front. But with that all said and done, it shouldn’t stop you being creative with your look, by experimenting with the position of your parting. Credit: @moguerini

Editor’s tip: For a totally on-trend finish to you ‘do, we suggest opting for a deep side parting, flipping the hair over and teasing into place with the TIGI S-Factor Creamy Molding Wax. This neat product has all the hold of a gel, just without any stiffness!
