If there has been one beauty mantra that has ruled 2017, it has to be ‘short hair, don’t care’. Uttered on the lips of cool girls the world over and splayed over Instagram captions galore – it’s safe to say we’re well and truly obsessed. But with soiree season swooping in, you’ll need a new take on short hair… like the party bob!
Not sure what it is? It’s this year’s most wearable red carpet hairstyle and is defined by its enviable choppy texture. Plus with a laundry list of celebs (with different hair types and face shapes) already rocking this cut, it’s proving to be universally flattering, too.
Intrigued? Here are 4 signs you should get this cool cut, like, right now!
Meet the party bob, the haircut every It-girl is asking for
1. It’ll get you out of a beauty rut
2. It’s easy to style and accessory-friendly
With the party bob, the options are endless when you want to spiff up your style — it looks gorgeous straight and swept-back, curled or fashioned into an updo. And if you want to work the look like a celeb, do nothing at all (yep, you read that correctly!).
However, if you really want a look that’s going to make you Insta famous, you should try playing around with hair accessories. From stars to velvet bows, bobby pins and more, you’ll be the belle of every ball.
Editor’s tip: Make the most out of this relaxed style with a texturising product, such as the VO5 Dry Texturising Spray. A quick spritz of this will instantly plump up your mane and give you an effortlessly tousled look.
3. It’ll work well with your fringe
Think you have to part ways with your fave fringe to get this choppy bob hairstyle? Well, according to this model, you can rock a party bob with bangs (let’s all just take a moment to appreciate how cool she looks!).
4. It’s great for all hair and face types
Something we all have to take into account when getting a new look is our hair and face type. What works for straight-haired gals might not work for natural curl queens – and the same applies whether you have a round, long, oval or heart shape face. But luckily for us all, the party bob can be tailored to suit everyone’s uniqueness (woohoo!).
So, what do you think of this fun party bob hair trend? If you’re tempted to take the plunge, here are some things you should know before you head to the salon.
