Now, since Asian hair is often ultra straight and sleek, you may be in need of a way to give your mane a little extra volume and texture, right? And one of the easiest ways to do this, is by adding soft, short layers, which will instantly uplift your locks, and give them some subtle depth and dimension.

Editor’s tip: If you have especially thin or fine hair, try spritzing your layered look with the Toni&Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray, for a lovely lived-in finish!

If you love a #throwback look as much as we do, then you’ll be pleased to know, that ’80s-style hair is having a major fashion moment right now! And the number one retro hair look on our style radar? Crimping, of course! But don’t worry, this hair trend has been given a contemporary update, with smaller and (arguably) more chic crimping. Phew!

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to have ultra long locks to work luscious, flowing waves! In fact, they make an ideal hairstyle to rock with a bob, since the waves instantly add tonnes of interest and texture to your cropped ‘do. But don’t worry if you need some help creating your glam waves, because you only need to check out our easy-to-follow tutorial, to completely nail this look.

Editor’s tip: Before grabbing your curling tong or straighteners, don’t forget to protect your hair from excess heat damage, by using a heat protectant. We particularly love the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray, which safeguards your hair from temperatures of up to 230 degrees.

Looking for a way to really spice up your classic bob? Then why not add a little colour to your look? Thanks to the usually dark base colour of Asian hair, opting for bold and bright hues in your tresses makes for an incredibly stylish look that’s full of contrast!

Of course, it’s not all about rainbow hair or glow-in-the-dark tresses, you can be as subtle or as bold as you like – just remember to check out our Hair Colours page to help inspire your next colour change.

Editor’s tip: If you do decide to dye your tresses, don’t forget to change up your normal wash and care system for one specially designed for coloured hair. Try the Dove Colour Care Shampoo and Conditioner, with its Vibrant Colour Lock technology, to help keep your colour vibrant for longer.
