The haircut from the 2000s will also provide momentum as a hairstyle trend in 2022.
Lively and with a flirty wink: the flippy bob, also called flippy lob in its longer version, was already a hairstyle trend in the 2000s among all those who liked to show clear edges when it came to hair styling. In the wake of the '00s revival, which is creating loud, daring trends in fashion and beauty as the so-called Y2K style, it is now making a comeback.
The flippy lob is a long bob that ends at shoulder height. While the ends of a traditional bob tend to turn inwards, the flippy lob blows them outwards, creating an outward wave. In this way, the hairstyle bounces up and down with every step and looks particularly lively, playful, and youthful, which is where the nickname "flippy" comes from.
As early as the '60s, women wore their hair backcombed and twisted into a perfect wave at the tips - a reference Jeremy Scott drew on for his Fall/Winter 2018/19 collection for Moschino when he designed the Flippy Lob back on the catwalk. The cut then became popular again in the 2000s, when actresses like Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair, or Cameron Diaz blow-dried their hair outwards. Today, stars from Bella Hadid to Hailey Bieber are sporting the look again.
Basically every woman. Thin hair in particular benefits from flippy lob as it gives it more volume and bounce. But even thick hair can be brought into shape with the right styling and the right hair products. Straight hair structures have a clear advantage; if natural waves are smoothed out beforehand, they don't stand in the way of flippy lob. The flippy lob satisfies our need for symmetry with a center parting or a side parting where the front section of hair is sectioned off and tucked behind the ear to give the appearance of a pony. A decorative hair clip, with which the strand is held in place, can provide an additional eye-catcher.
The flippy lob is a statement hairstyle trend that accentuates the facial features it prominently frames. For this reason, it goes perfectly with make-ups that are just as expressive – in any case, naturalness is not the priority with this styling. Instead, neon eyeliner and glossy lips (also a 2000s trend) work great with the hairstyle, which is particularly popular as a party look.
Granted, the Flippy Lob can be a challenge. Getting it in shape is relatively easy - the difficulty is more in fixing the hairstyle trend. To make this easier, it is advisable to use a volume shampoo when washing. Don't forget the right conditioner afterward - the Flippy Lob unfolds its full effect especially on healthy, shiny hair.
Before styling, add some mousse or mousse to damp hair. The hair is then curled strand by strand with the help of a round brush and hairdryer or curling iron. Then use your fingers to pluck the hairstyle into shape and set it in place with hairspray so that it doesn't come loose over the course of the day. So that the retro wave shines beautifully in the light, you can help with hair oil for spraying. If you want to wear the flippy lob as sleek as Bella Hadid, you can finally comb your hair back with gel or gel wax.
