One of the most famous film looks of all time: With "Léon - The Professional" Natalie Portman became world-famous at the age of only eleven. No wonder, after all, she played the young Mathilda, who wants to persuade the assassin Léon to train her so that she can avenge the murder of her family, so poignant that the drama is still considered a classic film par excellence. Essential for her role: the micro bob, which made her look innocent and determined at the same time. A hairstyle trend that will return in 2022 - not least due to the makeover of GNTM candidate Vanessa, who in the 17th season of "Germany's Next Top Model" got a short bob in the style of Mathilda, which was then colored in bright turquoise became.
Also on the catwalks of the past Fashion Month, the micro bob was the ultimate hairstyle trend in the most diverse designs. After the long bob and classic bob, there is now the extra short version: any bob hairstyle that is between ear and chin-length is considered a micro bob. So if you are already wearing a bob and are looking for a change, you should pick up the phone right now and make an appointment at the hairdresser's salon - in order to show off your fresh hairstyle just in time for the beginning of spring.
The micro bob is particularly ideal for elongated face shapes, as its symmetry and short length ensure that faces appear more compact. People with square and round face shapes can wear it in its straight version just as well. In addition, the micro bob can also be cut with a slightly forward silhouette. With regard to the hair structure, the micro bob is suitable for straight, wavy, and curly hair. Especially with fine hair, it provides additional volume.
Creativity is called for when styling the micro bob. You can go natural and just let your hair air dry, but you can also create numerous looks with the straightening iron. Either extremely smooth, with a slight swing inwards, or wavy with a flip outwards. Depending on the length of the micro bob, it is worth investing in a straightening iron with narrower plates, as this makes styling easier. Of course, a micro bob also looks good in the trendy permanent wave look. There are no limits to your creativity!
