The bob hairstyle is not just a trend but a timeless classic. It doesn’t suit everybody and if you are unsure, go to a department store and try a wig or play around with one of the hair make-over apps.
Above: Rebel has an oval face shape, meaning every hairstyle suits her. Througout the years, she had very short hair to very long “Cher Hair”. I think the bob hairstyle suits Rebel best, it’s the best haircut for her hair structure: Lots of hair, fine and glossy.
Everyone with fine hair is better off wearing a shorter hairstyle: There’s nothing worse then long, thinned-out, split end hair just for the sake of having long hair. A well groomed bob looks so much better. Wear it undone, wavy or graphic and straight, there are so many possibilities within this one hair style. For thick hair, I love a blunt layered bob to show off the structure of the hair.

Who can wear a bob?
Tips from my hairdresser:
The ultimate goal is to make the face appear to be oval. If you have a heart shape face, go with a side part and a swept over fringe to make the forehead appear smaller. If you have a round face, keep layers on the sides longer to elongate the face. If you have a square face, try a shorter chin length bob.
The last time I wore a bob was in my early 20s and I remember I cried for 2 months after the visit to the hairdresser because I hated it so much, enviously eyeballing all girls with long hair. Funnily enough, there are no pictures of me from this time, I really must have detested it. Over a decade has passed since then and I think I might be ready for the chop – especially seeing that since living in London, my hair seems to get shorter and shorter (the hard water and moist weather makes it a nightmare to handle). I’m not experimenting 5 weeks before my wedding though – so stayed tuned for a new Romantique post wedding!
