The bob hairstyle is and remains the long-running favorite among hairstyle trends - after all, it really suits every face shape, ensures a timelessly elegant look, and shows itself in a new facet from season to season. The classic bob will also get such an update in spring 2021 and this is already being traded as the hottest contender for the trendy hairstyle of the new season. We explain what distinguishes the new flat bob variant - or flob for short - and who is particularly flattered by the elegant sleek look.
Whether ultra-short, with casual steps, forehead fringes, or extra length - we have already reported on numerous bob trends in recent years. And just when we thought that there could hardly be a new version, the hairstyle reinvents itself just in time for the start of the spring season - and shows itself as a noble flat bob variant. This is characterized by hair of a short length that reaches no more than the chin and a blunt cut. The hair is dull, straight, and trimmed to a length without steps.
Also important: The flob is always styled with straight hair and part in the middle because this ensures the typically modern flat look that characterizes the trend hairstyle.
The flat bob generally flatters every woman, but the trend hairstyle goes particularly well with oval, round or angular face shapes. The flob gives it a beautiful frame, creates contours, and highlights the cheekbones. We only recommend a different hairstyle for heart-shaped faces, because the middle part can make the forehead appear a little wider here. And: The flat bob works best with a naturally smooth and fine hair texture.
As already mentioned, the flat bob is worn in the classic center parting and with straight hair. The freshly washed hair is best blow-dried and then shaped with a straightening iron or a straightening brush. For an elegant sleek look of the trend hairstyle, the tips should also be trimmed regularly and the hair treated with nourishing masks, serums, or oils - for a silky shine finish. If the look gets boring, you can of course blow-dry the flob inwards with the round brush or comb your hair back with a little gel for a cool wet look variation.
