The Classic “Bob” Haircut
No matter what trend we wear or what hair style comes into fashion one that always stays hip is the classic bob haircut. There are many ways to wear the classic bob. One could wear the classic bob very short or long. One could put a lot of layers into the classic bob haircut or one could wear the bob all one length. The truth is that no matter how one chooses to wear a bob, at one time or another every female will probably have one. Therefore, it is a haircut very worthy of discussion. Normally one would start long and go shorter since you cannot put the hair back on but you can cut it shorter. Lets start there. Here are some images of longer bobs.
Hmmm….bangs or no bangs. Most of these bob hair cuts are one length. The only requirement is that the haircut is above the shoulder in the back of the head and that there is some swing to the hair cut. The hair can actually be far longer in the front. This is the now classic lob. Notice how the last image is even longer on one side. Lets look at some shorter bob haircuts:
Although one would not be able to get any of these bob haircuts into a pony tail they are a great haircut for easy styling. This haircut is also ideal for those who have fine hair. Hair tends to look thicker when it is cut in this manner. If your hair is thick and you like the look of a bob haircut you may want to consider adding some layers. Here are some images of bobs with layers:
Adding layers also gives the hair more body or height.
