Well no, not this “Bob”…’though we do all love Charleston’s local celebrity Bill Murray!

 

We mean “Bob” as in the iconic hairstyle that keeps reinventing itself since its debut in the 1920s! So now you might  be thinking  to yourself , ‘what? It’s 2014 and the bob is still in? What about the bob???!!”   Well, we  do a lot of posts about long hair, Shrinklink hair extensions, and how to grow your hair  into that wavy -cool Sarah Jessica Parker middle part ombred kind-of-way-

…. but this breezy October morning we are thinking… hey….what about (the) Bob?…..

The bob has been the haircut of choice of brazen trendsetting women since the 1920s and it has yet to go out of style. Style maven  Coco Chanel’s bob was defined by her thick tousled curls and deep side part~ In fact, Chanel spokesmodel and actress Keira Knightly gives a fashionable nod to Coco’s bob in ads for Chanel:

 

 


Here are three modern uptakes on the bob. From sexy tousled hair to the more sleek blunt styles, make yourself over with a wearable take on the classic short  haircut:

 

1. Need inspiration for a party style? Add a touch of glamour with this 20s-inspired wave to frame your face. Not only does the wave give flat hair much-needed movement and bounce, but the softness adds a flattering, playful feel.

To achieve the movement and bounce, try using a body enhancing mousse such as : http://www.polishedhaircare.com/collections/frontpage/products/gel-mousse

2. Want to re-create that salon super-gloss at home? Your shiny bob starts with deeply conditioned and hydrated locks and investing in a good treatment is a must. We recommend having a bottle in Argan Oil in your arsenal of shine products. It’s 100 percent natural and it’s good for your hair!

All we can say is Argan Oil!

3. For those with slightly longer layers, why not try curling the ends for a quick and easy party style. It pays to invest in a good quality conical wand that heats up to a high temperature in a matter of seconds to create gorgeous, bouncy curls in an instant!

For your next appointment have Kevin or Tina  show you how to achieve this look at home!

Finally… make sure you have a good styling mousse and shine enhancer  on hand to give your bob a modern versatile look!

We think we will see a lot of bouncy bob-like dos at holiday parties this year because nothing says celebrate like a sexy timeless bob!

 


Happy Styling!

 

Love you, mean it!
