Bobs are among the most versatile of the classic hairstyles. Therefore, their longevity in hair fashion is practically guaranteed. The hairstyle has a general appeal because it adapts so well to all faces and styles. Bobs may be long or short, symmetric, asymmetric, sassy or elegant. You may wear the bob with or without fringes, straight or curly. The best suited bob for you may be in our gallery

  • Bobs have their heydays and times when other hairstyles temporarily steal their thunder. Right now, long bobs are all the rage. Bobs owe their universal appeal to the facts that they flatter the appearances of almost all women and that they are so versatile.

  • A Bob for Every Type of Face

    Chin-long bobs emphasise the appealing features of angular faces.

    If your face is ovala short bob may be your best choice. In a short bob, the hair reaches only slightly below ear level. The short haircut balances the appearance of long faces.

    Long bobs flatter round faces. The longer hairstyle makes faces appear longer.
