Don’t we all love the bob haircut? The way it’s feminine with a masculine twist, classy with an edgy side and very easy to look after? If you’re bored of having the same hairstyle as every girl around you, the unhealthy long hair that lightens towards the ends, come to the bob side. Or at least use some argan oil.
I recently cut my hair short/had a long bob, however it wasn’t enough and I wanted to go Margot Tennenbaum all the way so one rainy London afternoon I walked into a random hair saloon (which turned out to be super cool) and let Fabrice take care of my hair. I have always given in to the temptation of chopping my hair off, and most of the time I didn’t regret it. Except for the time I had bangs. However, I didn’t really do much to style it and it used to be just curled towards the ends by itself and looked very thin. Despite the fact that the bob is one of the best hairstyles ever, it might be a little tricky if you don’t know how to style it. Even though there are many ways, not everyone is aware of them.
Of course your hair can look nice even without styling it, but you don’t have to live with it if you have thin hair.
- Straighten it
This is quite basic and is very very easy if you have a bob. Since you don’t have much hair to take care of, you’ll be ready in 5 minutes. The tricky part is finding the right straightener. Mine has compressed keratin in it so it doesn’t damage my hair. If you have sensitive (or bleached) hair that tends to get damaged easily, make sure to use a heat protector spray!
The Cleopatra straight. Even though I’m not courageous enough to go for the short bangs, I find this absolutely gorgeous.
As you probably already know, Margot is goals. This is the ultimate point. Utopia.
I love Karlie’s hair here which is, in fact, straight yet messy at the same time.
- Get Messy
If you feel like the super-straight is too preppy for you, go for the messy look. It’s not that hard to give the impression that you’ve been surfing all day in Sydney when in fact you were attending International Relations lectures in London.
All you need is either a good sea salt spray, I use Bumble & Bumble or use dry shampoo.

This is Emma Stone’s go to look, even though the colour changes quite often, the style is almost always the same.
If Queen Bey is doing it, you need this in your life.
- The Ponytail
Bob girls do get bored of having their hair down all the time as well. I personally think that the small ponytail is very cute and classy.
You probably know by now that she is one of my favourite bob girls. I love the simplicity of this.
Referring to the second point, you can actually get messy with your ponytail as Selena here did.
And my chopped bob? Here it is:
