The blown-out bob gives the classic haircuts new impetus as the hairstyle trend for 2022.
Bob hairstyles have long since become favorite haircuts and are more multifaceted than almost any other style. From the micro bob to the jawline bob to the blunt cut – the variations for medium-length to short hair continue to dominate the hairstyle trends. The bob is still worn smooth and sleek most often, as it is particularly attractive in this way. But now there is another version of the trendy hairstyle that will provide a lot of momentum in spring 2022: the blown-out bob.
What is special about this bob variant? The focus is on the tips, which are skilfully blow-dried or styled outwards and thus bring momentum to the hairstyle. Singer Billie Eilish showed off an evening-ready version of the trend at the Oscars 2022, paired with a side parting and bangs that complemented her ruffled Gucci gown in a whimsical way.
Actress and singer Rachel Zegler not only shone with her performance in Steven Spielberg's adaptation of the musical classic "West Side Story", but at the Grammys 2022, she also presented a modern interpretation of the popular bob hairstyle with panache. The outwardly styled tips provided an exciting, playful twist and gave the haircut an almost cheeky touch.
Anyone who already wears a bob cut has an easy game: the hairstyle trend can be styled with both short and slightly longer hair without any problems. It also suits every face shape and can be varied or adjusted according to taste and occasion. For example, you can wear a more subtle version every day and go for an accentuated swing with 60s flair for more glamor in the evening.
Depending on the desired swing intensity, the hair can either be worked with a round brush, with curlers, or with a straightening iron. For the latter, slightly twist the ends of your hair inwards with a circular motion. In order for the flip, i.e. the swing in the tips, to really come into its own, the hairline and lengths should first be blow-dried smooth. If you prefer the method with curlers, let the twisted strands cool down so they keep their shape longer.
Just like many other updates of the trendy hairstyle, the blown-out bob works particularly well in combination with a center parting, as the facial contours such as cheekbones and chin are emphasized. The fact that it can also be styled on different hair lengths was seen at Dior in the haute couture collection for spring/summer 2022. There, the hairstyle trend, conceived by star stylist Guido Palau, came in a very natural-looking variation on wavy hair, therefore.
A little stricter and extremely cool, Miu Miu presented the blown-out bob with a deep side parting and hair tucked behind the ears. A variant that is also ideal as a business hairstyle, for example. The trend hairstyle at MSGM for spring/summer 2022 was playful and airy – with significantly more momentum and volume.
Clearly, the best thing about this bob hairstyle is that it goes well with just about any style and haircut. Even with thick or fringed bangs and with light to strong layers, the look succeeds effortlessly and provides more texture and fullness.
