Tips to Help you Style Your Inverted Bob
1. Use a blowdryer.
Pretty much for any haircut, you’ll need a good blowdryer. This one device will save you lots of headaches when it come to styling your bob. A blowdryer will a tooth comb attachment will help lift strands from the root and give your bob lots of body and roundness. Don’t forget to protect your hair from heat by using a heat protectant like the TRESemmé Get Sleek Blow Dry Balm.
2. Hot rollers are back and better than ever.
Hot rollers are another amazing device to have to combat a flat inverted bob. They come in a variety of different sizes, which is perfect for shorter bob hairstyles. Use smaller hot rollers to give your bob a cool “pixie” look. Let curls fall naturally on head and follow up with curling iron with a small barrel to curl pieces that stick up.
3. Velcro curlers can help out, too
Velcro curlers will give your inverted bob some volume from the root. These will not curl the hair like the hot rollers, but will help give your bob that structured bump it needs to look flawless.
4. Create sleek styles with some serum.
If you are trying to create a sleek inverted bob, hair serum will be your best friend. After you wash and dry your hair, apply a serum like the Dove Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil. This formula works to nourish your hair while also making it smooth.
5. Accessorize your look.
To add a little versatility to your bob, try a simple accessory like a headband or jeweled barrette to your style. It can dress up your everyday look and also doubles as a way to hold down any flyaways.
6. A round brush can help define your look.
A round brush works really well to create styles on an inverted bob because when used correctly it delivers great curls and flips, while also giving hair volume and straightens hair by providing an appropriate amount of grip while blowdrying. Ed’s tip: Use a a smaller diameter brush for shorter bob haircuts.
7. Lock in your style with some hairspray.
Use hairspray at roots of your bob to life them. This should be done after hair is curled or mainly styled. Use fingers to lift roots and spray each section while you’re doing it. Try to use a flexible hold hairspray like TRESemmé Tres Two Extra Hold Non-Aerosol Hairspray whose formula will lock your style in place without leaving your hair feeling sticky or stiff.
8. Get regular trims.
Keeping up with your trims will keep your inverted bob looking fresh and new. Make a visit to your stylist every four to six weeks or earlier if your hair grows fast. Salon visits may be pricey, but it’s well worth the money to have the style you want.
*Ed’s tip: To maintain your bob throughout the day, keep a small bottle of leave-in conditioner in your purse or desk to tame any frizz or flyaways. Dry shampoo like Bed Head by TIGI Oh Bee Hive! Dry Shampoo is another favorite that works wonders on your locks post-sweat session at the gym as it soaks up any oils and hair grease.
