It’s official, we’ve entered the era of edgy cuts! Long hair is no longer the go-to look, and everyone including Taylor Swift is chopping their locks into a chic chin-length bob for spring. Celebrity hairstylist Marc Mena, who gave Orange Is The New Black’s Jackie Cruz a short bob with bangs this week, gives us tips to nail this look.
“It all started with the lob (long bob), followed by the wob (wavy bob), but now it is all about the razor sharp bob,” says Mena. “With or without bangs, this look can easily transition from daytime with dewy skin and a neutral lip to fashion-forward and fierce with a smoky eye. Just make sure that when getting a short bob, talk to your stylist first about the shape of your bob and how it will compliment your face shape. Bobs should be customized to you and can range from a soft and round shape to a sharp and square cut, depending on your features.”
For everyday styling of short bobs, Marc Mena suggests the following steps and products:
While hair is wet, use a blow-dry serum like Warren Tricomi Blow-Dry Serum ($24) to eliminate frizz and add shine when heat is applied.
Choose a flat iron that will keep you hair straight and sharp without damaging it, like the Keratin Complex Smoothing and Straightening Iron ($179).
Finish your look with a finishing wax like Keratin Complex Iconic Polish High Shine Pomade ($23) to keep your hair beautiful and in place all day.
