ICYMI: Bob haircuts are a major trend we’re keeping our eyes on in 2022. However, there isn’t just one bob style that will be making an appearance. Many variations from layered looks to wavy textures are styles you won’t want to miss. One style, in particular, that’s sweeping the bob trends: The broom haircut.

The broom haircut is a type of bob that consists of a one-length, short style. This bob lacks movement, giving it that stiff “broom stick” appearance. Keep scrolling to learn

From learning how to ask for this cut to styling to what products to use, learn everything you need to know about the broom haircut.

How to Ask for the Broom Haircut

So, you’ve made your first hair appointment of the New Year and you’re ready for a change? If you ask for a regular bob, you may not get the results you’re hoping for in your broom haircut, so we’re breaking it down for you.

Ask your stylist for a sharp, one-length bob that sits about one to two inches below your chin. This style shouldn’t have much movement to it, so it’s important to make sure your cut doesn’t have any layers. After you have the length and blunt effect right, the stiff, broom haircut comes into play during styling.

How to Style the Broom Haircut

When styling your broom haircut, you want to avoid anything that’ll add movement to the style. Start by applying a mousse throughout your hair. This will help you achieve that stiff look you’re going after.

For curly hair, we love Suave Professionals Captivating Curls Mousse. This product is a great pick for those with curly hair because it’ll control your hair, add hold, and help reduce frizz without making your hair feel crunchy. For those with wavy or straighter hair types, we love using Suave Professionals Firm Control Boosting Mousse. This mousse is a good pick for almost any hair type. It will give your strands a little lift while adding control and hold to your style.

After you’ve picked out your mousse and applied it throughout your hair, begin blow-drying hair with a flat brush. This helps create a stiff, flat look. When blow-drying your hair, it’s important to apply a heat protectant before to avoid any damage. One of our favorite heat protectants is TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray because it doesn’t leave any residue on your strands or impact your style. Once your hair is dry you’re all set!
