Bob Cuts

What’s trending this season, you ask? A cute, short silhouette in the shape of a bob! Spice up any abbreviated bob with rich haircolor, fabulous fringe or edgy details to make your mane come to life. Here’s a sneak peek at your next hair inspiration…

Keep It Cute
A sleek style with subtle, chocolate-brown highlights wows the crowd.
Get the look: Keep it cute with this chic, sleek style created by Jeremy “The Head Hunter” Scott of Rell Styles The Salon in Savannah, GA. Subtle, chocolate-brown highlights add a touch of elegance to the look, which features a veil of flirty, feathered fringe and gentle, voluminous waves.

Haute Color Hues
A shaped bob with bright, beautiful color details along the edges.
Get the look: Striking hair color work takes this look to the next level. Designed by Hector Obeng of Hector’s Global Hair with Zeal in London, England, platinum shades peek through rich, auburn locks as the style is trimmed and shaped into a face-framing bob.

Couture Crop
Unleash your inner fashionista with a modern bob silhouette that’s fit for the runway.
Get the look: Jet-black strands are trimmed below the chin, while soft bends create a rounded shape in this coif from Maete’s Hair Design in El Segundo, CA. Fringe is given a blunt snip just above the eyebrows for a high-fashion vibe while ebony hues reveal gorgeous, glowing shine. Work this stylish snip by tying down lengths beneath a satin scarf nightly, and use a flat-iron to smooth strands in the morning.
