7 good reasons to adopt this trendy haircut...
The long bob or straight bob that reaches down to the shoulders is a version of the bob popular with stylish girls. Its glamorous look is gaining more and more followers. What if you too fall for the trend? Here are all the good reasons to give in to the call of the scissors.
Among the most coveted cuts in recent months, the bob is undoubtedly an essential beauty trend. French bob, Italian bob, tapered bob, plunging bob, or more classic straight bob... We can no longer count the squared cuts for women who stand out as the trendiest hairstyles of the moment. But one of them has the advantage of pleasing even those who do not particularly appreciate short hair: it is the straight shoulder-length bob, a long bob (or long bob for non-English speakers) whose locks are not that short since the ends of the hair flirt with the shoulders. A characteristic that can reconcile even those who are afraid of the fateful cut of the scissors which will separate them for several months from their lengths, with the square cut.
Do you want to change your mind but still hesitate to adopt this trendy long bob that reaches down to the shoulders? We prove to you that it is in your best interest to ask your hairdresser for this cut.
The first reason why you should fall for it and not the least, this is a must hairstyle that is one of the top hair trends for fall/winter 2021-2022. Indeed, if it is the long bob in its entirety that stands out as a trendy hairstyle of the moment - the cut can also be worn with a slight gradient in the style of Penelope Cruz - the straight shoulder-length bob is a variant of the most fashionable trend. Khloé Kardashian, Margot Robbie, Ingrid Chauvin, or Charlotte Casiraghi…. many celebrities have opted for this graphic long bob and proved that this shoulder-length bob is more fashionable than ever.
We told you a little earlier when you want to change your hairstyle by having long hair at the base, the bob can scare more than one woman! The long bob is, among all the bob cuts, a reassuring haircut for women who are not sure how to get their new look after their hair is cut. The regrowth to return to long hair is indeed much faster with this hairstyle than with a short bob cut like a French bob. Add in the boost of hair growth accelerator dietary supplements and you won't have to wait too long to get your hair back.
Also, with shorter bob cuts, hair can become difficult to tie up and therefore not easy to get along with on a daily basis while this long version of the bob doesn't mess up all of your habits. A very short bob cut or strands of different lengths because of layering is, in fact, not so practical if you like to lift your hair in a bun or a tail every now and then. Ditto with a bob, a long plunging bob, the asymmetry of which can complicate daily maintenance and styling. A problem you won't know with the straight shoulder-length bob. This hairstyle allows you to give in to the beauty of the bob without having to suffer the disadvantages of this short haircut. In short, he puts everyone in agreement, or almost.
Although straight and therefore not adaptable to the face of each of the women who wear it thanks to a gradient, the straight shoulder-length bob is not a typical hairstyle, and it will not necessarily have the same look on everyone... Indeed, there are several models of long straight bob: with fringe to prevent it from lengthening an oval face or embellished with a wick that sweeps the forehead to totally change its style by infusing the cut with a movement on the side which will then be marked by an off-center line, it can still be easily personalized. Compare a straight bob with bangs and one without bangs, compare these to squares with highlights and you will see, you can easily stand out from other women who wear this cut with a little detail that suits you!
Do you have thin hair or hair that is not very dense? So the straight bob is more appropriate than a tapered hairstyle at the ends like a tapered or layered bob that could impoverish your hair in a way that is not always flattering. If a few well-given scissors can sometimes lighten a cut wonderfully to maximize the volume of the hair, it also happens that shortening your locks does more harm than good to fine hair when the bob is tapered. The hair is seen as stripped and the hair seems “broken” at the ends, which does not give the impression of volume at all, quite the contrary! The same problem also arises with a woman who has thick hair but little hair with too degraded or too tapered hairstyles. Suffice to say that on this point, a straight cut that does not touch the ends - like our famous square - is certainly the ideal choice.
If you are one of those who quickly tire of their new cut and/or who like to play chameleons when an occasion (outing, evening, wedding...) arises, then this long bob (and not that classic) has it all to please you. Not only will it allow you to save a considerable amount of time in the morning by enhancing the natural texture of your hair, but in addition, it will allow you to change your head without changing your cut if you transform the way you style it. Worn with ultra-straight hair in graphic mode, it is meant to be glamorous and chic, worthy of the red carpets with its crisp look that highlights the face. Wavy thanks to a wavy effect, it gives more a relaxed style but remains very elegant. Moreover, wavy chic with a curling iron or disheveled wavy made with a styling product: it's up to you to decide according to your preferences because the two hairstyles sublimate it as much as the other. But you can also choose to embellish it with real tight curls. The voluptuous curls then also give it a style just as glamorous as the straightening baguette, the hairstyle offering this time a look a bit retro of the most charming. Finally, style your long, straight bob with a very off-center side parting, and it will even merge with a plunging bob if you straighten your hair before! In short, all styling ideas are allowed and they will give the impression that you are wearing different styles of bob. Not bad is not it?
We know that if it's so hard to keep long hair healthy, it's because the ends of our locks (which is the oldest part) weaken overtime on long hair. But while most shortcuts allow us to do our care a little less rigorously, this is ultimately not the case with the shorter squares which do not forgive a lack of care that could cause a really catastrophic breakage for our look. Unless you want to finish with a wig to catch up, daily care is therefore essential, even more so than with XXL lengths that can easily be cut if necessary. Let's be clear, you will need to continue to do one mask per week and regularly hydrate your lengths even with a long bob, but as a mid-length cut that does not let the ends get damaged (thank you for the regular refreshment at the. hairdresser) and which can quickly be shortened nicely in case of brittle hair, this bob greatly facilitates hair maintenance.
While XXL lengths are perfect for highlighting highlights, lighter strands or two-tone hair color, and short haircuts more easily enhance full, even color without being heavy, mid-length haircuts like the straight bob that touches the shoulders - are perfect for highlighting any color. An ultralight blonde that gives an air of Hollywood glamor, brown color full of nuances, uniform raven black, flamboyant red, dark blonde ... this long bob is ideal for enhancing your color whatever it is. Thanks to this cut which gives free rein to contrasts but allows uniform coloring without it becoming bland or overwhelming for the face when it comes to very dark colors: your color will be sure to be beautiful with this square!
