Win­ner of TV’s Great British Hair­dresser on the hottest trends

Belfast Telegraph - Weekend - - FASHION/BEAUTY -

Sharp, sleek and stylish — the bob is the hot new look turn­ing heads this au­tumn/win­ter sea­son. More than a cen­tury af­ter it first made an ap­pear­ance in Paris back in 1909, the bob is one of the hottest looks of 2018 and a favourite of many A-lis­ters this sea­son.

Jes­sica Chas­tain looked stun­ning in a jaw-length bob dur­ing New York Fash­ion Week, while Amer­i­can ac­tress Olivia Wilde (be­low) has also ditched her long blonde locks for a beau­ti­ful new blunt brunette bob.

Se­lena Gomez is also rock­ing a sleek shoul­der-length bob and Ken­dall Jen­ner’s mid-length bob proves this look is per­fect for thick hair.

That’s one of the many great things about this cut — as well as look­ing su­per stylish and cur­rent, it suits all hair types.

Whether you have thick or fine hair, you can eas­ily get this look as it’s all about the cut. It is also great for giv­ing fine hair the ap­pear­ance of be­ing thicker.

The new sea­son bob is sharp, with a blunt, well-de­fined fin­ish. The length is up to you. If you are not afraid to go short, it will look fan­tas­tic hug­ging the jaw­line.

Those more com­fort­able with longer hair should go for the shoul­der skim­ming ‘lob’.

This look, which is long enough to put back in a pony tail but short enough to frame the neck, is again at its best when it’s sleek and blunt.

By cut­ting the outer layer of hair slightly shorter than the rest, the il­lu­sion of the blunt line at the bot­tom is cre­ated.

This is a ver­sa­tile style with which you can cre­ate dif­fer­ent looks for day or night.

The bob looks great with beach curls, us­ing old-fash­ioned rollers to a give a bouncy glam­orous look for night. Think Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe.

You can also leave them looser for a more ca­sual, laid-back day­time look.

Cre­ate in­stant edge by sim­ply sleek­ing your bob back be­hind the ears.

The beauty of this cut is in its ver­sa­til­ity and the fact that you can change the look your­self sim­ply at home. This style is also a per­fect fit for this sea­son’s fash­ion trends, which have seen boyfriend suits and tuxedo jack­ets adding edge to your wardrobe as well. There is re­ally no has­sle with the bob. Even when it comes to prod­ucts, you need very lit­tle to main­tain your style. A reg­u­lar cut ev­ery four to six weeks will keep it fresh and sharp. This is also a great way to shed off dead split ends and give the hair a healthy glow. It also works with your hair parted and in a fringe. You won’t have to change your colour. Your bob — short or long — will look good whether your hair is bal­ayage or one block of colour. So, what are you wait­ing for? ÷ Keris Weir, MG Hair Bou­tique, 153e Union Street, Lur­gan, tel: 028 3832 5543
