The popular bob haircut is still trendy in 2013
Bob haircuts have been around since 1910 and despite its age it’s still one of the most popular styles in hair fashion because of its endless variations and its versatility.
Bobs will never go out of style and continue to be very trendy even in 2013, due to the fact that it flatters almost every face shape, from round to oval or square, and every hair texture.
Easy to maintain, even when it grows out, the bob in any of its variations is chic and sophisticated, and looks good on blondes, brunettes and even redheads, and lengths can vary and isn’t only limited to chin level.
There are demi bobs for hair that is a little longer, and even long bobs - called ‘lobs’ - and the numerous variations on the theme can include straight and blunt, layered,wavy, angled and graduated cuts.
However, our personal favorite is the inverted bob hairstyle, also called concave bob, stacked bob, wedge bob or ‘posh’ bob where hair is much shorter in the back and longer in the front and is suitable both for curly and straight hair.
Bobs work best on medium texture hair, but even if you’re cursed with baby fine straight hair it still looks good and you can liven up the color with highlights that accents the haircut. If you have curly hair have in cut in layers, and women who are blessed with a lot of hair should opt for a flattering longer and layered style.
Bobs with fringes is a true classic as America Vogue’s Anna Wintour’s signature bob haircut can testify , and the lovely thing about bangs, especially longer ones, is that they can be parted in the middle or worn to the side to create a different look.
Bob hairstyles are still a chic choice on older women, who should wear it a little longer, while younger women can choose a shorter and cooler version for summer.
