The classic bob haircut is reinterpreted every year. This year, the so-called bottleneck bob has crept into the hearts of stars and influencers. We explain what is behind the term and how to style the trendy bob correctly.
The bottleneck bob is actually a very easy-care and cool hairstyle that can be adapted to the shape of the face. At the top, bangs flatter the face and accentuate the eyes and eyebrows. The top section of hair is not styled voluminously. Below, the ends of the hair are blow-dried inwards or outwards as desired. The haircut looks particularly good on women with long faces, but it can be modified as desired and is then also very suitable for women with square or round faces.
The bob can be styled as you like. Sleek for special occasions, with hair tucked behind the ears, with casual waves for a playful beach look (looks especially nice with hair highlights), chin or shoulder-length: the trend hairstyle of the year offers numerous styling options, with and without accessories.
As for the bangs, they too can be swept to the side or back, or just let fall loosely on the face. Which variant you choose depends more on the shape of your face. Let the hairdresser advise you on cutting your hair and try out different variants at home.
The most important thing when maintaining a bob hairstyle is to have your hair trimmed regularly (i.e. once a month). If you color them, then you should also do this at the monthly hairdresser visit.
For everyday styling, you may need a curling iron, conditioner, and hairdryer. Try different variations until you find a hairstyle that suits your face best.
If the bob is shoulder-length, then some updos can also be realized. But you can also braid short hair without any problems - the braided hairstyles are particularly charming, easy to care for, and uncomplicated and are therefore perfect for everyday life. You can browse through our post on braided hairstyles with bangs and check out the different variations.
The trendy haircut makes no special demands on the hair color. However, the hairstyle looks much better when the hair is completely dyed. Highlights are allowed as long as they are very subtle and don't differ too much from the main tone.
If the hair reaches the collarbone, then the so-called beach waves can be realized. You can easily recreate the look with a blow dryer, it's not complicated at all. Make sure, however, that the characteristic shape of the haircut is retained. Use special volumizing styling products to make the hairstyle last. For special occasions, you can also style the beach waves with the straightening iron.
The special thing about the hairstyle is that the hair is styled flat at the top and voluminous at the bottom. However, this is not always possible for women with naturally curly hair. In this case, it is also sufficient if the lower section of hair is simply more voluminous than the upper section.
Women with straight hair can opt for sleek styling. The trendy look is missed with a straightening iron and suitable styling products. Best of all, you can't invest a lot of time, it takes less than 10 minutes for the hairstyle in the morning.
Hair length can vary greatly. In the classic bottleneck cut, the tips of the hair ends at the height of the chin, in the long bob - the collarbone, in the short version - the ears. Everyone can adjust the length as they like because the trend hairstyle is primarily about successful styling.
