Modern Hairstyles That Made the Cut

The Pixie

Strong yet soft, the pixie has always swept me off my feet. The new spin on this model is the disconnection between the shorter sides and the longer top. We no longer want our pixies to lay flat, but to rise to occasion!

How To Style:

Moving from left to right, wrap dry clean, damp hair with a vent brush.
When hair starts to become dry, begin lifting the crown with the vent brush towards the ceiling.
Apply a small amount of wax all over and direct hair to desired side. Then start piecing out sections to enhance movement.

Osmos Shaper is perfect for this soft, textured look.

Face Shape and Hair Type:

Oval face shapes can pull any look off, however they truly are best suited for the modern pixie. Typically medium to fine texture is recommended for this look as well. If you have curly hair, you might want to think about a texture treatment to relax those precious curls before cutting them this short.
The Shattered Bob

The classic bob has so many variations and this one is amazing. Just look at the movement and texture created here. A soft, sweeping fringe really sweetens up this tough, modern classic.

How To Style:

Start with a working product on clean damp hair.
Wrap dry from left to right with a vent brush.
Use a round brush in vertical sections once hair is dry for more contour towards the face.
Piece out the interior with a wax or pomade to create the shattered effect.

Face Shape and Hair Type:

I feel like any face shape is complemented by this look. The soft lines diffuse any square or heart shaped faces while the fringe fills out any triangular shapes.

The Graduated Bob

Here is another bob variation that redefines one of the classics. The graduated bob shows off so much texture. Accompanied by a trendy swing fringe, this haircut highlights so many focal points that it will compliment just about anyone!

How To Style:

Apply a working product throughout the hair.
Wrap dry hair from left to right with a paddle or vent brush.
If your hair is a rougher texture, then flat iron vertical partings forward.
Apply wax or pomade for separation and shine.

Face Shape & Hair Texture:

The graduated bob is better for triangular and oval face shapes. Unfortunately, for those who have square or heart shaped faces, this cut could widen the jawline. Typically the purpose of a graduated bob is to build weight in the back. For this reason I would suggest this cut for ladies with locks that lean towards the medium to finer side.

Recommended Products:

When your hair is on the finer side of things, I recommend the Kevin Murphy Anti.Gravity. It’s not just a volumizer, but a styling lotion as well. The Osmos Shaper is perfect for lightweight separation and shine.

 

Wear Bob Hairstyles

Trying out a long bob is a fun way to try something new and exciting (without committing to a super short ‘do that you just may not be ready for!).

There’s just something so sweet and sassy about a long bob (aka the lob). Perhaps it’s the in-between length or simply the fact that it’s the perfect go-to hairstyle for women who can’t seem to (or don’t want to!) make up their mind!

Check out below for 5 ways to wear a long bob!

Lob

This particular lob is all about simplicity and finding a great hairstyle that’s perfect for the everyday and stylish enough for special events.

To achieve this look, ask your hairstylist to give you long layers that fall just above shoulder length. This is a great choice if you’re into sporting no bangs because the long layers that fall ever so gently below your chin create such beautiful movement and texture, you’ll find that you don’t need ‘em!

Long Bob

This long bob with bangs is an ultra flattering look for just about anyone out there as it’s a bold choice (with enough subtle features to allow you to feel comfortable in your own skin) that works with any face shape.

This long bob is all about creating layers along the bottom that really help to show off the cut’s intricate angles. Adding in a side swept fringe brings this look full circle and also works to show off your eyes too!

Long Bob with Bangs

This long bob hairstyle with layered bangs and long layers is a great choice for thick hair as it helps to lighten things up and create movement. By adding bangs to this shorter layered hairstyle, it really allows for an extra mod feel (which oozes with sophistication and sex appeal!).

After you finish your usual hair-drying routine, spritz in a little TIGI Rockaholic Groupie Texturizing Spray Pomade for a more textured and piecey look that’s a little more undone, but still polished enough to wear into work.

Shoulder Length Bob

The classic bob is a signature look for many women because it’s simple yet stylish and works for all hair types. The special thing about the long bob though is that you get all the characteristics of a regular bob with a little extra oomph.

This particular hairstyle is all about creating the perfect angles that starts with shorter layers in the back while gradually working towards longer layers in the front. This creates a look that’s super textured and fun to style.

Choppy Long Bob

A great medium length hairstyle allows you to keep things looking healthy and fresh always (as it’s an absolute must to keep up with regular trims to maintain this length).
