Bob Hairstyles and Your Face Shape

Guest Author - Lynne Chapman

The bob hairstyle is one of the most popular hairstyles today and is easily the hairstyle with the most longevity. The first bob made its first appearance on the fashion scene in the 1920s. There has been some sort of bob in fashion in almost every season’s style trends ever since. The bob is not only fashionable, sophisticated and easy to style, there is a style of bob that will fit almost every face shape.
Those of you who are fortunate enough to have an oval shaped face with its symmetrical features can wear any of the bob styles but if there are problem areas, you may find some help here.

ClassicThe classic bob is all one length with the blunt perimeter falling anywhere between ear length and chin length. At all one length, it is flat on top and calls attention to wherever the ends fall – that being either the cheek bones, jaw or chin. This style is best worn by someone with an oblong face, long and narrow face or someone with a narrow or pointy chin. This bob is a good choice for someone with a heart shaped face. If your face is wide in this area, such as a square chin or a round face or pear shaped face shape, I suggest choosing one of the other bob styles.
AsymetricalThis asymmetrical bob hairstyle is all one length with one side trimmed at ear level and the other side falling at just below the chin. The part is usually worn on the short side allowing the other side to be dramatically long. This bob can be effective for the woman with a round or square face shape. The asymmetrical styling draws the attention away from a wide of full face.
LayeredThis layered bob can be worn by someone whose face is narrow at the top. The bangs help to add width. The layers give the top and sides fullness. This is very effective in drawing the attention up and helping to give the face an uplifted look. It will draw attention away from a full chin or jaw line and also away from sagging skin in someone with a more mature face.
LayeredThis bob is also layered but worn without bangs. The layering provides fullness toward the top and helps to take away from the fullness at the bottom. It is very effective when trimmed at or just below chin level. Worn below the chin and close to the face, will help to camouflage a full face.
