Anyone who finally wants to let their hair, which was previously cut short, grow or wants to give their very long hair more casualness can now order the elongated bob from the hairdresser: This uncomplicated long bob is not only wonderfully flexible when it comes to styling (even a braid or bun can be made with it bind!), but is also totally hip in summer 2021! How to properly style and maintain the trend hairstyle, in the following.
The name says it all, because the so-called elongated bob, i.e. the elongated and drawn-out bob, describes straight-cut hair that is neither short nor long, and the tips of which end somewhere between the collarbone and shoulder. Because of its practical midi length, the elongated bob is wonderfully changeable and flexible in styling and can be attached to an updo or tied in a braid without everything slipping out after a few minutes. It also looks super casual on both curly and straight hair.
The trick to keeping the elongated bob from looking like a neglected short haircut or blunt bob is to have the tip trimmed regularly. Split, dry hair ends are removed and the hair is cut to mid-length - in such a way that it can be worn in the middle as well as in the side parting or as a tousled shaggy bob without looking sloppy. In addition, regular trimming makes the elongated bob more compact and full.
With just a few simple steps and the corresponding styling essentials, the elongated bob can be styled in many different ways, such as a wavy bob or a sleek bob. Depending on the look, anti-frizz fluids and straightening irons or a volume mousse and a curling iron make styling easier. Important: The elongated bob is never styled accurately or even fixed with hairspray. Naturally falling, flexible hair, and elasticity are essential for the casual look.
