Popular Bob Hairstyles You Can Use

Posted by Short Hair Styles on July 21, 2009

It seems that the bob hairstyle never goes out of style. It’s been popular since the 1950s and its popularity shows no signs of abating.

Short Bob Hair StylesIt’s likely that the bob is so popular because of its simplicity. Generally, it’s an easy hairstyle to style and manage. It flatters nearly every face shape and age.

But what are the most popular bob styles right now? Let’s look at a few.


The classic bob is still popular. Of all the popular bob styles right now, this is the only one that features bangs. The bangs can be very short or right at the eyebrow. The hair is usually right at the chin.

This style is popular because it’s easy to style, especially for women with naturally straight hair.

The long bang

This style of bob can be very short (right at the ear) or longer, under the chin. The style can give the appearance that the woman has no bang, but the bangs are there, just very long. They are usually swept to the side. There might be some light layering, or there might not be any layering at all, though the hair is usually straight (as with the classic).

The side sweep

This style of bob is extremely popular right now. This is best suited for women who have naturally straight hair or are willing to blow dry their hair straight. This style features hair that’s mostly all one length. Often the front of the hair is cut longer than the back, but there are no bangs and if any layering, it’s long layers.

This style is characterized by a side part and hair that’s blown or lightly curled just barely under a bit. This isn’t the bob that features hair that flips out (that style is quickly going out of style) but rather gently curls under. And when we say “gentle” we mean it’s quite subtle. Many women can get their hair to do this naturally if they have the right cut.

This style is popular with very young women and older women. An older woman might back comb the hair to get a lot of body from the back and have it curled under a bit more dramatically, while a younger woman might opt for a few more layers to make the look a little messier.

The flip

Though we said look that hairstyles featuring flipped ends are going out of favor, there is one style of bob that features lightly flipped ends. These aren’t the ends that are dramatically flipped and sprayed to stay that way. That look has gone out of favor. This is about a light flipping, often done just with a curl brush and no curling iron.

In this style, the hair is lightly layered, though they are long layers, and the hair is generally fairly straight. It’s parted in the middle, and the ends are, as we said, just lightly flipped. That’s added just to give the hair and face some dimension. This style is best suited for young women.

As you can see, there are a myriad of choices in popular bob styles. Most work with many different hair textures and face shapes. Do a little research to find the right bob style for you.

Hot Short Hairstyles For 2009

Posted by Short Hair Styles on July 6, 2009

Looking for the hot short hairstyles for 2009? You don’t have look too far. While long hair abounds (and is beautiful), short hair is “in” and the best styles for 2009 are right in front of us!

Modern Short Hair StyleJennifer Aniston and Victoria Beckham are two celebrities whose hairstyles have spawned worldwide trends. While Jennifer Aniston’s tousled hair had a certain irresistible and timeless charm, it is Victoria Beckham’s latest pixie cut that is currently sending women rushing to make appointments with their hairdressers. Should you join the crowd in an attempt to be hip and happening or should you make an appointment for a unique short cut that will help you stand out from the crowd?

What to Consider Before You Cut

Not every trendy design is meant for every woman. While most women will be able pull off at least one of the many short hairstyles, there are some things you need to think about before you decide which one.

* Your Age- Age does play a factor. Overly trendy cuts of the moment can make a more mature woman look like she trying too hard to look younger than she really is.

* Your Face Shape – Face shape also plays a very important role in determining whether a cut will work on you or not. Instead of just looking at the hair itself when looking at photos you are considering, look at the face shape of the celebrity or model. If you cannot find an example of a hair style on a person with your face shape, there is probably a very good reason.

* Your Lifestyle – Another thing you need to consider when deciding which of the hot short hairstyles you’d like to try for 2009 is your lifestyle and personality type. Some cuts require much more maintenance than others. Be realistic and don’t opt for a design that you will never have the time or patience to maintain. A style that looks as it was intended is always much more attractive than a great cut that is never fixed properly.

What Short Hairstyles Should You Consider?

If your face is thin and angular, go for the super Short Mens Hairstyle which do sported by fabulous celebs like Victoria Beckham and Alyssa Milano. If these cut seems a little too severe for your tastes, opt for a very short shag instead. This hairstyle is best on round and square face shapes because the longer pieces towards the front help to add needed angles to the face. Ovals should avoid the short shag.

The short bob is definitely one of the hottest cuts for 2009. Celebrities of all ages can be seen sporting a version of the short bob including Paris Hilton and Kelly Clarkson. The 2009 bob does not have to be worn straight. Curly and wavy versions of this hairstyle are also very popular this year. This is a great style for almost every face shape except those that are very round. It is also very low maintenance and can be styled in a variety of ways for different looks.
