If there’s anyone to look at for inspiration in the bob-with-fringe department, it has to be model and It Girl Taylor LaShae. The secret to tousled perfection? Use a styling product that will give your bob loads of texture and volume.

TRESemmé Volume & Lift Mousse Front

Editor’s tip: We like to reach for the TRESemmé Volume and Lift Mousse to add volume and body to the hair. Apply it when your hair is damp and watch how it enhances the natural texture of your locks.

2. Half-up, half-down bob

We love Emma Chamberlain’s half-up, half-down bob with a ruffled fringe. It’s cute and required minimal skill to pull off at home.

3. Layered lob with a fringe

If a blunt bob is too dramatic for you, take a cue from Billie Eilish’s effortless layered lob. To add some movement, reach for some tongs and add subtle waves to your lengths.

4. Wavy bob with curtain bangs

The curtain bangs trend is here to stay and looks just as lovely with a bob. For a wavy texture like in the look above, use a flat to create subtle bends. To do this, work with horizontal sections of hair in between the straighteners and rotate away from the face, and then towards the face, going back and forth till you get a Z-shaped wave.
TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Oil Front

Editor’s tip: Apply an oil like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Oil for extra shine and gloss.

Curls make bangs look even better! If a short curly bob isn’t for you, consider keeping more length. Enter: the lob. Make sure to use a curl cream to scrunch the hair for maximum texture.

7. Messy bob

To keep your bob looking modern, set aside the hot tools and embrace your natural texture. Too much frizz? Use a serum to smooth over your locks.

8. Side fringe with a lob
