Inspired by the '50s and '60s, the flicky bob is the new favorite haircut of celebrity women - and now we too...
Apart from all the amazing actors like Jessica Chastain or Ariana Debose, the 94th Academy Awards had one other clear winner - and we're not talking Will Smith. This is a hairstyle that has been worn by many celebrity women on the red carpet and is also taking the web by storm: the flicky bob. Inspired by the glitz and glamor of the 50s and 60s, this hairstyle not only suits the red carpet but can also be worn elegantly in everyday life.
The flicky bob is recognizable by a short to medium-length bob cut that reaches roughly to the key bones. Above all, however, he is characterized by the curved tips of his hair, which point away from the face. It is reminiscent of the preppy aesthetic of the 1950s, of waitresses in an American diner on inline skates and blaring jukeboxes.
The elegance that the flicky bob gives every woman was also demonstrated by celebrity ladies like Olivia Culpo, Naomi Scott, and Billie Eilish at the last Oscars. All three wore a flicky bob in different variations. Olivia Culpo opted for a version with sleek center parting, while Billie Eilish opted for side bangs. Actress Naomi Scott, on the other hand, wore the bob in a super smooth wet look.
To create a sleek look at home, start by blow-drying your wet hair into a classic blowout using a blow dryer and a round brush. Meanwhile, brush the round brush (the size of the brush determines the size of the 'flicks') over the hair as it dries, gently rolling your wrist back towards you at the ends of the hair, creating a small roll at the end. To make the swing last longer, you can secure them with curlers. It all works faster with a straightening iron: simply use the same technique as with the hairdryer (but the hair must be completely dry!) and twist the ends of the hair. Fix everything with hairspray and enjoy the elegance of the flicky bob.
