Radically cut as a blunt bob, with a cheeky touch as a petit bob, or modern as a chin long bob – the timeless hairstyle with its many facets is definitely one of our absolute favorite hairstyles. All the better that there is now a new, voluminous version of the trendy hairstyle: the side swept bob. We'll show you how to style it and which products you absolutely need for it.
As the name implies, the distinguishing feature of the side swept bob is the deep side parting. This ensures that you have great volume even with thin hair. While the extreme side parting is mandatory, the cut is looser. It doesn't matter whether it's casual layers or a hard cut - both are suitable as the perfect basis for the side swept bob.
Just one more thing: get your hair cut at about chin level or a few inches below so the volume doesn't go to waste due to the heaviness of the hair.
Styled with beach waves, an all straight look or undone – the side swept bob offers many different styling options. Depending on the occasion, it can be staged in very different ways. But no matter what look, one thing is definitely desired so that the effect of the deep side parting comes to the fore: volume. That's why you should always put a little mousse in your damp hair and blow-dry the roots with a round brush. Dry shampoo can give you extra hold, especially with smooth hairstyles. If you want a little more texture then a texturizing spray is ideal. Healthy hair is the basis of every hairstyle.
The side swept bob looks great on women with oval faces in particular. However, the exact hair structure is less important. Whether thin or thick - with the right care and styling products, even fine hair can get great volume. But women with heart-shaped faces can also wear the cut well. The forehead is optically reduced by the hair, which falls slightly over the face on one side.
