It seems that the bob hairstyle never goes out of style. It’s been popular since the 1950s and its popularity shows no signs of abating. It’s likely that the bob is so popular because of its simplicity. Generally, it’s an easy hairstyle to style and manages. It flatters nearly every face shape and age. But what are the most popular bob styles right now?
The classic bob is still popular. Of all the popular bob styles right now, this is the only one that features bangs. The bangs can be very short or right at the eyebrow. The hair is usually right at the chin. This style is popular because it’s easy to style, especially for women with naturally straight hair.
The long bang. This style of bob can be very short (right at the ear) or longer, under the chin. The style can give the appearance that the woman has no bang, but the bangs are there, just very long. They are usually swept to the side. There might be some light layering, or there might not be any layering at all, though the hair is usually straight (as with the classic).
The side sweep. This style of bob is extremely popular right now. This is best suited for women who have naturally straight hair or are willing to blow dry their hair straight. This style features hair that’s mostly all one length. Often the front of the hair is cut longer than the back, but there are no bangs and if any layering, it’s long layers. This style is popular with very young women and older women. An older woman might backcomb the hair to get a lot of body from the back and have it curled under a bit more dramatically, while a younger woman might opt for a few more layers to make them look a little messier.
