Go British, with little ringlets of hair that frame your petite face beautifully. This look is perfect for redheads and women with dark hair. It gives a cherubic look and is playful. Go professional with a curling iron or just wrap strands of your hair in dowels or rods, for perfect curls. If you don’t have natural curls, you must use generous amounts of hairspray for your hairdo to stay in place.


4. The Twisted Bob

Twist strands of your hair and braid them from the front, for a charming, lady-like hairdo. You can experiment with tiaras, bands, or flowers. This bob hairstyle goes well with all face shapes, as it softens and accentuates at the same time. Women with diamond or oval faces can twist the strands of hair in the middle, while women with round or rectangular faces can twist parts of hair on either side and create a waterfall braid.

5. Retro Bob

6. Sleek Bob

Go bohemian and channel your inner Goddess as you get the perfect messy cut for casual evenings. The key here is a soft blowout with minimal curling iron usage. You want waves, not curls.

Nothing says chirpy and fun like bangs! This hairdo works perfectly to hide a wide forehead or a receding hairline and covers blemishes on your forehead. This bob haircut looks adorable when paired with hairbands or bows. Cut your hair in such a way that it falls right below your eyebrows, so that you can either let it fall or tie it high as per your needs.

9. Side Fringes

If you don’t want the trouble of messy bangs, fringes are your saving grace! Choose the most appealing side of your face (usually the right), and part your hair accordingly. Fringes add more dimension to your face and make it look structured. Bobby pins and barrettes add brownie points to your look.

Take sassy to a new level with microbraids! Though this takes a lot of effort initially, it is very easy to maintain in the long run and gives you great versatility in terms of accessorizing. Beads, shells, and clips add quirk to your hair and show off your scalp as well. When styled appropriately, ombre hair looks beautiful in box braids.  

15. Afro Bob

If your hair is extremely curly, embrace it with afros. An unconventional, shaggy style can make you look bold and stylish, especially if you have dark hair. Remember to secure your hair with hairspray so that it doesn’t become unintentionally tangled.

16. Partitions

Women with heart-shaped or inverted conical faces look wonderful with hair parted in the center, as it accentuates the contours of the face. Square or rectangular shaped women can opt for side partitions. A simple blowout with proper conditioning gives a chic look. You can opt for beach waves too for a breezy look.

17. Colors

Channel your inner Kylie Jenner as you go cray-cray with colors this summer! Vibrant neon hues are definitely in. Ombre adds class to your look. If you are reluctant to color your hair, you can go for extensions or wigs, which give you amazing results with half the struggle.

Remember to go for a style that suits your face, skin tone and hair. Short hair needs conditioning and care too. Massage your scalp with warm coconut oil for lush, supple locks. Wax is a must to avoid strays, especially when you have short hair. Don’t forget to remove all traces of hairspray before you go to bed. Experiment away!
