This year, 2009, is supposed to bring a lot of changes. As with all new years, changes come in fashions and hairstyles. This year’s hairstyle changes seem to be either long and wavy, or a short bob.
The “bob” hairstyle has come back into fashion for spring. Some women have already cut their hair in anticipation of spring. Before going to get your hair cut make sure the hair cut is something you like and you can live with until your hair grows back out.
In order to imagine what the hair cut will look like on you, pull your hair up to the length your hair will be once it is cut. Hold your hair in place or pin your hair up. Ignore the fact that you have extra hair. You want to concentrate on what your face looks like with the hair that is around it.
Bob hair cuts or hair styles are not for everyone. You need to make sure the haircut will fit your personal style. If you have a round face, don’t even entertain the thought of getting a bob hair cut because the hair style will make your face look fat.
Bob hair styles are said to make ladies look sophisticated and mature. Those two words together – sophisticated and mature, usually mean old. The bob hair style will make people look older and if you are mature enough to know you don’t want to look older then you are too old for the bob hair cut.
The bob hair style is best worn on tweens, teens, and young professional adults. For example, the ladies in the Miss America contest that had bob hair styles looked older than the 18-24 year old rule. Miss America contestants with the short bob looked to be in their thirties. If you are an office worker hoping to climb a corporate ladder the bob hair cut is perfect for making you look older and more mature. If you participate in beauty pageants, why is there an age limit if the judges want an older look?
Most of the women that can pull off the bob hair cut are younger people trying to look older or black ladies. The bob hair style doesn’t look good if the hair is free flowing and all over the place. Black women have a way of taking care of their hair so when they straighten it they can wear it in a bob with out it looking like they just woke up and ran out their door.
Most women get their hair cut short so they don’t have to do anything with it. I don’t suggest a bob hairstyle if you are going to wake up and go. Short hair cuts that aren’t styled in a bob are perfect for waking up and going. The bob hairstyle requires a little bit of work and effort because since your hair is all one short length the strands will want to fly in every direction especially if you have natural waves or volume in your hair. You will usually have to wash your hair and blow dry it into place or put gels and styling creams in the bob hairstyle to keep your hair looking good.
Before getting a bob you may want to talk to a hairdresser or to other people that have worn their hair in a bob. I do like this hairstyle or younger girls. I don’t think this is a hair style for everyone.
