Protect hair and get pin straight locks with tons of shine with a dedicated flat iron product, got2b Guardian Angel Heat Protect N’ Flatten Flat Iron Balm and Gloss Finish.
The long bob is an excellent choice for thick hair, which gives the cut a boost of volume. This can also be a flattering cut for thin or fine hair. The blunt cut hangs on to lots of length for a clean finish. Keep hair from frizz free with Crack Leave-In Hair Cream, a multi-tasking styling aid that protects all types of hair against humidity, chlorine and sun.
Another fabulous feature of bob hairstyles, long and short. is graduation. Unlike the blunt version, hair is cut to angle down from back to the front. This creates sophisticated lines with face framing ends. Plus it works for straight, curly, and wavy hair. Add some wispy blunt bangs for this cute look or leave them out and part hair off to one side.
