The Many Ways To Wear Bobs and Baby Bangs

The beauty world’s fear of having too-short hair is long gone. With bobs and baby bangs hotter than ever more and more women are wondering if they can pull off a short ‘do. If you too are contemplating a chop, but wondering what your style options will look like, look no further. Below is a handful of ways to style both bobs and baby bangs.

The Many Ways to Wear Bobs

Bob haircuts

Lengths

  • The Classic Bob: The blunt cut that your teenage-self said you would never wear, well now you can rock it. To imagine the size, think of model Karlie Kloss’s fresh cut bob.
  • The Baby Bob: For the women who want to go short, but not that short, the baby bob is a perfect choice. The ends of your hair should be grazing your chin so that it is too long to be considered a bob but too short to be considered a lob. Think of singer Julianne Hough’s short cut.
  • The Lob: The perfect cut when you want to assert your maturity, but still want that extra feminine oomph. The ends of the hair usually fall somewhere between just-above-the-shoulder and just below the collarbone. T.v. personality Khloe Kardashian, singer Nicki Minaj, and actress Ashley Benson have all been seen rocking this length.

Looks

  • Messy Curls: The tousled look is a great option for any bob. All you have to do is curl your hair as you normally would, apply a spritz of hairspray, then use your fingers to loosen everything up. If you get some frizzies while doing so, simply rub some anti-frizz serum between your palms and smooth it back down.
  • Tight Curls: Whether you emphasize your natural curls or use a small-barreled curling iron, this classic look work day and night.
  • Twisted Bun: It’s exactly what it sounds like! Simply twist your hair back into a bun, using as many bobby pins as you need to hold it in place. This is great for date night, taking all the hair away from your face so that your fabulous bone structure is the main focus.
  • Bombshell Bump: Yes, the bump is back on the rise, and it’s the perfect way to style your bob. Simply pull back the hair between your temples, give it a quick tease and use pins to hold it back.

Baby bangs

The Many Ways to Wear Baby Bangs:

  • If you have the itch to totally change up your look, a super cute option is a pixie cut with wispy baby bangs. Not only is this look super easy to style in the morning but you’re bound to be bombarded with compliments.
  • If Beyonce has been the inspiration of baby bangs, then you should wear them just as effortlessly as she does. Go for that I-woke-up-like-this look by simply using your fingers to scruff up your bangs once they’re totally dry.
  • If you’re a bit punky like Miss Kelly Osbourne, use a curling iron to give them a tuck.

Look Like A Model

“Girls can be all kinds of beautiful – from the thin, plus-sized,
short, very tall, ebony to porcelain-skinned;
the quirky, clumsy, shy, outgoing, and all in between.”

Admit it! There’ve been moments when you’ve been just as shocked as the next person in the supermarket when your Sunday-morning-shopping-eyes glance up at the line in front of you. Just as you grab the customer pile separation stick-thingy you notice the titles on the tabloid covers.

“Is she PREGO or does she NEED TO HIT THE GYM?”

“She’s a WRECK since the split!!”

“Did her makeup artist call in sick today?”

It’s no secret that the media can be cruel and aggressive, but the bold yellow Ariel font is printed beside the three-time Grammy winner who is a forty-year-old mother of four. I’d kill to look like that again, you think to yourself. The “WRECK” looks better than the majority of women look when they’re at the gym. Pshh, she still looks fabulous without makeup, you think as you question if they put the wrong picture on the cover.

The tabloids have published content like this for years and it seems to work for them somehow, it’s truly nothing new, and probably the reason you stopped spending money on them when your allowance became a paycheck. Still, you look at the glossy covers today and the same question comes to your mind: how do models look so stunning on and off duty?

Makeup artist to the stars, Kristen Arnett explains that while all woman are their own kind of beautiful, it takes and effort to look like a supermodel. Here are some of Arnett’s top three tips on how to look like a model.

  • Always, always wash your face: Arnett explains that even the slightest bit of leftover product from yesterday will make the difference between dull looking or glowing makeup today. This means that even in the morning it is a good idea to give your face a quick cleanse. Now, there’s no need for a full on scrub, oil cleansing or which hazel are both good options.
  • Let your facial moisturizer do it’s duty and moisturize: A major mistake that many women make is glopping on a pump of moisturizer right before they start loading on the cosmetics. The problem with the lighting fast application is that the lotion sits on top of the skin; not only is it not going to moisturize, but it’s going to slide down the skin and take all the primer, concealer, foundation, and powder down with it! Have you ever looked in the mirror an hour after getting ready and felt that it looked like you didn’t even put makeup on this morning? This is why! When you apply moisturizer you should be using the pads of your fingers to massage the product into the skin until it is fully absorbed.
  • Be prepared for quick touchup… and another one later: Arnett explains that touchups are essential to looking like a model. The truth is that unless your makeup is tattooed on (ouch!) it’s going to need to be touched up here and there. This doesn’t mean that you need to make room for your entire makeup bag in your purse, but it’s a good idea to have a mascara, lip gloss and translucent powder tucked away behind your wallet.

The High By The Beach singer is certainly feeling some beachy vibes with her new summer look. While we love her typical dark auburn look, she looks amazing flaunting her California-blonde locks. If you’re just as ready to rock some sun-kissed hair has Lana was, have your stylist give you a full set of honey highlights, followed by some ashy streaks to give your look some added dimension. Depending on your natural color, you may need to use purple colored shampoo to keep your hair color at its best.

As is the pop beauty wasn’t already killing it in the music scene, she made a few hair changes for a summer Revival Tour. Selena has been rocking her natural dark shade for a while now, which she tends to wear at a longer length with some shallow layers. When she began her tour about a month ago, she made a few scandalous changes to her ‘do. Most noticeably are Selena’s new caramel and honey colored highlights. Instead of just getting a healthy trim, the singer had her stylist give her some wispy bangs and an angled V cut.

The skin care spokesmodel said au revoir to her lavish dark locks at the beginning of the month, only to grace the red carpet with an even sweeter look: honey blonde highlights. Unsurprisingly her new look is right on point with the nude hair trend. What is surprising? Shay’s personal hairstylist told the media that she didn’t actually commit to the lighter look, instead, she was rocking a custom-fit wig that was colored to honey-blonde perfection. We think this is great! There are plenty of women out there, just like Shay, who are apprehensive about committing to a drastic hair change. If you fall into this group of people who want a change but are worried about anything that follows change, a wig is a great option. That said, another option for a faux-change is to get a high-quality set of extensions.

Just a few weeks ago, the country singing bombshell was spotted with a ripe dirty blonde hairdo, this just a tad different than the platinum blonde bob she was sporting earlier in the month. As you may know, Taylor just faced a public split with longtime beau, Calvin Harris. Shortly after the separation, Taylor did just as any girl should, and got herself a sassy post-breakup look. Of course, she didn’t go overboard, which we can totally appreciate. There are two ways to steal her new look: (1) Those with platinum hair should schedule an appointment with their stylist to get low lights. (2) Those with darker locks will benefit most from a double process of going lighter, than adding in subtle colored highlights.
