A balayage blonde bob hairstyle that’s been loosely tousled is the perfect ‘do for giving your everyday look some effortless chic vibes.

For a relaxed, feminine style, tuck one side of your bob behind your ear, leaving out a few loose strands at the front for a romantic touch.

To get your bob looking messy and textured, use your fingers to gently scrunch in a texturising product, and create movement by gently tousling and pulling it in different directions.

For a more glamorous blonde bob hairstyle, ask for a slightly longer, shoulder-grazing cut, styled with a deep side part. Mix in warm shades of blonde together for a honey blonde hue and blowdry with a round brush to create bouncy curls and uplifted roots.

Tip: For the most flattering effect, ask your colourist to use the lightest shades of blonde on the front sections of hair, as this will help to perfectly frame your face.

To create this gorgeous, bouncy bob, curl the ends of your hair with a curling tong for subtle curls, then simply spray some medium-hold hairspray throughout your mane. Finish by backcombing the roots and you’ll achieve a seriously dramatic lift.
