The medium length bob is the hair cut of the season, and we want in on that hair trend too.
Karlie Kloss, Lea Seydoux, Rose Byrne and Jessica Alba are just some of the celebrities trying out the look, and this fuss-free look is perfect as we head into summer.
For thinner hair types, adding choppy layers gives plenty of volume
and body, while for thicker hair, longer lengths and blunt cuts give shape and movement without being too heavy.
Whatever your hair type or texture, there’s a medium-length style to suit all occasions, from work to weddings. Not only is it an A-list favourite but it's versatile and easy to style.
Nicola Bond, Creative Stylist/Senior Technician at Trevor Sorbies Manchester is on hand with top tips to re-create your style: “The mid-length bob is seeing a revival of popularity this season, and is the perfect style for those who are trying either to grow out their hair, or opt for a longer style. It also is a subtle change for those who want to go for the chop but aren’t ready for a look that’s too dramatic.
"When asking your hairdresser to create this style, make sure it involves lots of layers to help encourage natural movement through the ends of the hair. Ideally, the perfect hair type for this style is fine
or medium-thickness hair. It is not great for naturally poker straight hair, or very thick hair which can create a triangular effect. If there is not a natural wave in your hair, try using a curling wand to create easy, long-lasting movement. The key is to focus on the ends of the hair.”
Pippa Middleton is the latest celeb we've seen trying out the trend, and we think the revived hairstyle has done wonders for the Duchess' sister.
Nicola’s hero product for recreating this relaxed style is Trevor Sorbie Styling Salt Texture Spray (£5.70). This can be used on tonged curls or onto damp hair to create a beautiful, tousled finish. “Pippa has opted for the safe bob length, but for a dramatic new look, Nicola suggests a short sexy crop which would look great on Pippa. This would embrace her hair’s natural movement and allow her to style it with varied products for an edgier look.”
