POL­ISHED BOB

ELLE (Australia) - - Hair Special '18 -

POP­U­LAR IN: New York, Lon­don, Los Angeles, Paris, Syd­ney Women around the globe are em­brac­ing a shorter length, with the bob the most cov­eted style in ev­ery city. “It makes clients feel in­stantly pol­ished and put to­gether,” ex­plains Schulz, who says Syd­neysiders love the ease of shorter hair, es­pe­cially in the city’s warmer cli­mate. Parisian women don’t toe the line with a lob, adds Iles. “They take it shorter and it just works bet­ter.” In New York, it’s the per­fect cut to “make a strong state­ment,” says Pe­cis, while in LA and Lon­don, it’s all about keep­ing ends sharp and blunt.

STYLE NOTES: A pro­tein-packed con­di­tioner is an es­sen­tial (it’ll keep split ends at bay), while styling prod­ucts should coax out shine and min­imise frizz. When styling, Mar­jan sug­gests prep­ping strands with a smooth­ing, heat-pro­tect­ing spray, then blow-dry­ing with a round brush for a bit of body. Once dry, fin­ish with passes of a flat iron, mov­ing in “pa­per-thin hor­i­zon­tal sec­tions,” she says.
