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.
