If you are fastidious about fashion, you’ll know the bob has evolved. No longer only square or round, graduated or not, now you can get the ‘lob’ –– a new kind of bob that is much longer than the typical version. Jessica’s example is just terrific, and it is the disheveled elegance of her sexy, tousled waves that makes it right. For effective styling notice, too, how she has pushed one side behind the ear, with the opposite side falling above the eye. It’s a great way to create face-framing asymmetry.

There’s lots of seventies inspiration around hairstyling at the moment (beach waves, center-parts, texture, movement), and one of the most fun to do is the big, volumized blow-out. Like the image, wear the center-part slightly off of center to avoid splitting your face right down the middle, and put in some cascading ‘S’ or ‘C’ shapes as hair hits the shoulders for romantic, soft tousle.

This is an adorable, featherweight shaggy bob with the long sweeping bangs focusing attention on Emma’s youthful, pretty cheekbones and bright, sparkling eyes. A great style for the young and trendy, or anyone that wants a great hairdo with minimum fuss in the styling. It’s been razor cut into this playful messy texture with longer pieces adding femininity. Golden blonde highlights offer shimmering depth and dimension, and embellishes the fun, flirty appeal of the cut.

Ever wondered why Kim Kardashian is so photographed, famous? This picture is the answer. Behold the modern vixen –– do you know another who makes fashion napalm out of a little black dress, a clutch, a ponytail? Sleek ponytails are a great option for nights out. They keep hair off the face and give an illusion of lift to cheekbones. Wear high for more drama; wear low for more class. And remember, if you are trying an adventurous style that goes wrong, ponytails are a great back up plan.
