Soft Bob: The Trendiest Square Cut Of The Summer
Do you want to cut your hair? So fall for the soft bob, the trendiest new square of the season. Hot, practical, sexy… It has it all. The proof is in pictures!
It's no secret that the bob cut is an easy way to transform completely when you have long hair. But it's also a pretty drastic haircut that there's no going back anytime soon. The regrowth is then long before finding your hair of yesteryear. It is therefore not easy to make the decision to cut everything overnight for an Italian bob or another trendy short bob. When its cut is straight, the square is even a rather daring hair bias and not always so easy to assume even if we now know how to style your square well to give it style.
That's why the soft bob, a brand new bob that's starting to get talked about, has a great chance of seducing you this spring-summer 2022. As its name in Shakespeare's language suggests, this version of the bob cut bob – which can literally be translated as “soft bob” – is a less drastic bob cut than most variations of this must-have short haircut. Result: it is hot but also easier to adopt.
What is a soft bob, spring's new bob cut?
Unlike straight bobs that feature a clean (straight) cut and minimal length, the soft bob is longer, fuzzier, and less structured. It is therefore a rather long bob whose tips flirt with the shoulders, which allows you to go to the bob smoothly, and a haircut that plays on the gradient or tapering located at the tips to blur the cut in order to offer a softer finish to the eye. Many celebrities have already adopted it even before it had this trending name. The proof in our selection of looks and stars that showcase this square from every angle.
3 good reasons to fall for a soft bob bob
With a soft bob, it's easier to get your long hair back
We told you half-word, like any long bob, the soft bob has the advantage of not forcing you to sacrifice all your lengths. This allows for faster regrowth if you want a short-lived change or aren't sure you'll get used to this new hair length.
It's a clever square for fine hair
Unlike some short bob cuts that deplete the hair mass, the length of this bob allows you to keep a maximum of material and the gradient located at the tips does not thin out fine hair but helps to give it more volume.
It is an easy to maintain bob cut
Unlike many bobs that require a good blow dry after shampooing to look their best, the soft bob can totally air dry and be barely styled without losing its gorgeousness. Its length also makes it very easy to dress it up with a wavy effect if you feel like it.
