The Ultimate Back-to-School Hairstyle

A new school year, a new 'do.

As summer winds down, many students begin to think about their back-to-school beauty looks. This often involves a fresh new haircut and style. If you rocked a long mane the entire summer, why not make an eye-catching debut with a short bob? You'll be the envy of all your classmates, and be sure to turn heads in the hallways! Ahead, we share three reasons why a versatile bob is calling your name.

 

1. It's a classic cut

 

Let's face it: The bob cut never goes out of style. It's timeless, always current, and is constantly reinvented with every generation. It's a true classic cut that's here to stay, so you don't have to worry about donning an "outdated" style as you embark on the new school year.

 

2. It suits all face shapes

 

This perk is often overlooked, but is one of the reasons why a bob cut is universally adored-it suits every face shape! For round faces, we recommend a straight cut at collarbone or chin level. For long faces, go for a lob (long bob) and add bangs to keep the balance. Speaking of bangs, bobs work well with all types of bangs--be it blunt, floaty or even baby bangs. If you're not sure which bob cut will suit you best, visit a L'Oreal Professionnel stylist who can provide a full style consultation.

 

3. You can wear it straight or curly

 

Think a bob cut can't work on curly hair? Think again! The shorter the bob, the more volume it has, which is great news for square face shapes. Plus, a bob cut can help add structure and texture to wild and unruly curls. To style without hassle, incorporate L'Oreal Professionnel Dual Stylers Bouncy & Tender into your routine. The 2-in-1 blow-dry cream delivers shiny, smooth, and beautifully-defined curls. Best of all, a bob cut pairs nicely with a straight and wavy style as well. This versatile cut truly works on all hair types!
