The Updated Flapper Bob
Period pieces like The Great Gatsby and Downton Abbey have reignited a love for the jazz-age, face framing bob. However, shorter cuts that are too severe can end up looking like a Halloween wig. That’s why the softer, modern version is so great: it looks chic and sophisticated with a fresh twist.
One way to update the look is to make it slightly longer. Consider having it cut so that the longest point hits either the middle of your neck or just above your shoulder. It’s also helpful to style it so that it’s longer in the front than the back, creating an angular shape. Wear it straight and add a shine serum for a dramatic look, or add a salt-spray and wear it wavy, scrunching your hair for volume, to achieve a romantic style. If you have long hair and worry about taking the plunge, schedule a consultation with your hairstylist. You can also create a Pinterest board of looks you love.
