The hairdressers are finally opening their salons again! Anyone who is one of the lucky ones and has got hold of one of the coveted appointments sweetens the anticipation of the new haircut with research. Researching the perfect hairstyle. Because when there is - and this is to be expected - a lot to do, the precious time window should be used effectively and not wasted on intensive advice, but should lead immediately to the desired goal. Hairstyle templates with the desired look are more useful than ever. Bob hairstyles are always timeless, variable, and extremely uncomplicated in styling (and growing out). Whether chin-length or shoulder-length, ironed flat or gently wavy - these are the best bob variants ever, inspired by icons and current hairstyle trends from the runways.
The chin-length wavy bob, framing the face in gentle waves, was a coveted hairstyle trend in the Roaring Twenties of the 20th century and was initially reserved for elite party girls and Hollywood stars, but then shaped the look for an entire era.
Based on this, the British model Twiggy was styled in 1970 for her role in the Ken Russell film "The Boy Friend"; Kaia Gerber shows the short wavy bob as a hairstyle trend in the autumn/winter show 2020/21 by Chloé.
When actress and singer Barbra Streisand received the Oscar for best leading actress in the film "Funny Girl" in 1969, she surprised everyone with a chin-length, smooth blow-dried bob, the tips of which were significantly longer at the front than at the nape of the neck and which, thanks to the short bangs, were a bit like a helmet remembered. Was rediscovered (and worn) years later (namely in 2006) by Victoria Beckham and is still considered an iconic bob variant to this day. However, with visibly defused (read: evenly cut and softly falling) tips and loosely styled bangs, seen here as a hairstyle trend at (oh coincidence!) A current show by Victoria Beckham.
The easiest and most uncomplicated would of course be to simply shorten the hair to chin length and comb it straight down to the left and right of the parting. Can either be tucked behind the ear or decorated with a pretty hair accessory, such as a sparkling bobby pin or a silky hoop and goes with pretty much every outfit and occasion. The side parting offers a surprisingly effective styling variant because then the sleek bob as a hairstyle trend looks less girly and well-behaved, but immediately looks casual.
If there is talk of an undone-styled, wavy long bob, Alexa Chung cannot be far away - because the British designer and presenter made what is probably the most uncomplicated of all bob variants her signature look at an early stage. If you want to imitate this, you hardly need a template or styling instructions, because the hair can fall as nature intended, and after blow-drying it just needs to be loosened and teased (or tossed) with the fingertips. Works as a hairstyle trend in fine hair as well as in strong hair, whether straight, wavy, or curly (see Chanel).
A variant that already became a cult hairstyle in the 80s, but also appears again and again as a hairstyle trend at current fashion shows and then immediately attracts full attention, is the mullet cut, i.e. a long bob with the front ones Section of hair is shorter and the back section is cut longer. For everyone who likes provocation - and for everyone who is undecided.
Tip: Whether short or long, straight or wavy - a bob looks best when the hair is supple and shiny. It works best with hair masks and rich conditioners that are used several times a week as an intensive treatment.
