Celebrity Trend Watch; The Wavy Bob Hairstyle (aka The Wob)


How Hollywood Loves the Wavy Bob Hairstyle

Over the past two years, short hair has been in trend with the Hollywood crowd. A lot of celebrities have transformed their looks and cut their hair short. From bobs to long bobs to pixies, short hair is no doubt here to stay. But there is a new trend that is becoming more prevalent as of late – the new so-called ‘wob’ or wavy bob.

It’s a chic but mature hairstyle that comes with a playful touch. It is also a highly versatile look, no wonder celebrities love the wavy bob. You can wear it with a cocktail dress to a formal event or with jeans and a tee to run some errands or do some shopping.

If you have stubbornly wavy hair, you can heave a sigh of relief knowing that you can just let your hair be. And because short hairstyles are highly doable, you won’t have to slave yourself for hours in front of the mirror to create the perfect hairstyle to get you through the day.

But even if you are not ready to commit to a short hairstyle yet, you can create a wavy bob with your long hair. Simply curl and twist your hair before tucking it in to create a faux bob.

The basic features of a wavy bob are that it is of chin-length and a bit choppy. If you would like to learn how to create this hairstyle on your own, follow this easy guide:

The first step involves prepping your hair with a wash. When you are done, dab on a towel gently to remove any excess moisture from your hair. Then, take out your blow dryer and diffuser. Work it through your hair until it is roughly 60-80% dry.

The next step involves putting on oil mist in your hair. Start by applying the oil mist to the ends and then gently work your way through towards the roots. If you want a subtle-looking wavy bob, be gentle when working the oil into your hair.

When you are done prepping your hair, whip out a medium-width comb to help spread the oil throughout the hair. As you do so, make sure to separate the hair into sections that are each one-inch apart.

For the finishing touch, you can use a shine product or shine serum. Make sure to twirl it through every section of hair to maintain separation of the strands.

Aside from ease of styling, notable celebrity hair stylists also commend the wavy bob because it is easier to change up the look once the hair starts growing out. If you’re into watching the celebrity hairstyle trends, be sure to check out our Celebrity Hairstyles Pinterest board.
