WHO SUITS A BOB?
"'The Bob’ can really be tailored to anyone with any face shape. A square, boxy bob will suit an oval or oblong face shape, where as an A-line shape would suit a square or more rounded face shape. Keeping the length longer at the front, even just slightly, is great for longer face shapes and creates a more flattering look.” – Katie Allan, Master Stylist at Charles Worthington
HOW DO YOU KEEP IT MODERN?
“Make sure the bob touches your collarbone or below, or above the shoulder or higher – anything in the middle will cause a 1960s Mad Men flick at the top of the shoulders.”
WHAT TO ASK YOUR STYLIST FOR?
“Just ask for ‘a bob’, but take pictures of the looks you are trying to achieve as bobs can differ dramatically. If it’s your first bob, and quite a change in length to what you come in with, start longer and gradually go shorter – you can always have more length taken off but it’s not so easy to add it back on again! Also, ask for a versatile style that you can blast dry in the week and spend more time on at the weekend” – Jo Hansford
