The bob is a fabulous cut that can flatter everyone, is easy to wear, and makes sure you’re showcasing only the healthiest locks, getting rid of the rest. Let’s take a closer look at Kristen Wiig’s bob hairstyle!

With this modern bob, messy is in. This is a great look for ladies with fine hair who are always looking for a boost of volume.

Just spray it through wet hair, scrunch, and diffuse and let air dry for mermaidy texture and waves. Here are more ways to cut and style a bob.
This short bob gives you all the flattering benefits of side swept bangs without the drawbacks of bangs – blow-drying them to stay flat, summer frizz, growing them out. Hair is parted deeply to one side (check out how the part lines up with the brow). Hair is pulled across to the other side for a touch of mystery. If your hair type needs some hold to stay in place, try a lightweight pomade like Aveda Control Paste.
