4 reasons to try the asymmetrical bob

If you're searching for a look that is perfect for the summer heat but isn't run-of-the-mill, let us stop you right here! This modern twist on the bob is a bold update.

4 advantages of an asymmetric bob

  1. The asymmetrical bob is perfect for you if you aren't sure if you want to cut your hair too short. Longer in front and shorter in the back means that you have two lengths in just one style!

  2. Experimentation is the key to finding out the best look for you. An asymmetric bob lets you keep it either longer in the front, or just shorter on one side. You could even accent the look with razored ends for a messy hairdo.

  3. If you have thin hair or lack volume, the asymmetric bob completely changes the look of your hair! It provides instant volume because the ends are thinner, and the length makes the hair feel less heavy.

  4. Don't worry if you have curly hair or a messy and wavy texture. The asymmetric bob is for every hair type. Remember, if you have curly hair, make sure you tell your stylist to cut your hair when it's dry so that there are no unwelcome surprises later!

How to style your angled bob

The current trends show asymmetric bobs being worn with choppy bangs. So why not let your stylist keep chopping away after he cuts the bob? You could even wear the look with a deep side part, and increase texture using the Morning After Dust by Tecni.ART. Scrunch in the spray after leaving it on for a couple of seconds, for a head of tousled waves.

Colour inspiration for bobs

An asymmetric bob is a bold change by itself, but adding a dash of vivid colour can only make it better! If you're looking for a creative change but aren't ready to make a permanent move, the new Flash Make-up service by L'Oréal Professionnel has wash-out temporary hair colour in a variety of shades.
