If you are thinking of giving your hair a new hairstyle for the summer, the layered bob could be perfect for you. The airy, feminine cut is just the right length for warm days. And best of all: it flatters every hair type!
Especially in summer, when the temperatures are rising and the mane is actually held out of the face as a ponytail or messy bun, many people toy with the idea of shortening their hair. But it shouldn't be too short either, after all, the summer is over at some point and you suddenly long for your long hair.
This is where the layered bob comes in. It is the ideal hairstyle for everyone who wants to approach a short hairstyle. We'll tell you here what distinguishes the layered bob and how the hairstyle is best styled.
Bob hairstyles are super popular. There are now a number of trendy bob variations, from classically short to feminine long bobs. The layered bob can be classified somewhere in between. It's the perfect way to get used to shorter hair.
The hair is not shortened radically but cut in soft levels. This makes them look particularly feminine. In contrast to the long bob, the hair in the layered bob does not reach all the way to the shoulders. The layered haircut makes the hair look a little frayed and not as accurate, which is why the cut is super easy to style.
The best thing about the layered bob: Both fine and thick hair benefit from the layered cut. While the fringed look requires a bit of volume with fine hair, the steps with a thick mane can be placed in such a way that they visually thin the hair a little, and the cut is not too wide.
The hip step cut can also score points when it comes to styling. Round brush, straightening iron, and curling iron are not necessary for the hairstyle to fit. After washing your hair, simply apply a little styling foam or structure spray to your hair. This brings the steps nicely into shape and also provides more volume.
A trick that we can learn from French women: Simply go to bed in the evening with slightly damp hair. This naturally brings movement to the hair and makes it fall more interesting the next morning.
But if you like to take the time for special hairstyling, we recommend Beach Waves. The soft waves make the layered bob look casual and beautifully summery.
The layered bob can look great on both flat, thin hair and a thick mane. The trend hairstyle could also be interesting for those who want to grow their hair long. Because it basically also works as a long bob variant, in which the hair is simply shortened a little towards the back and layered through.
For wavy and curly hair, we recommend wearing the layered bob a little longer so that the hair ends around the shoulders. This way you avoid the frayed cut appearing too wild. As a precaution, consult your trusted hairdresser for advice.
In the case of fringed looks, the care of the ends of the hair should not be neglected. So treat your hair lengths regularly to a moisturizing hair treatment or mask. Hair oil or leave-in conditioner also makes the tips silky-soft and makes them shine beautifully. Simply work a few drops of the care product into damp hair lengths after washing.
