For those of you wondering what the hairstyle for 2017 is going to be, the popular choice would seem to indicate that the bob is back, and with a vengeance! Perhaps we really ought to be asking ourselves if it really went away in the first place though as it is without doubt one of the most flattering hairstyles around, suiting all hair colours and types, from blond to brunette and fine to coarse hair. And as for the face type it suits best, well those with a heart-shaped or slightly rounded face seem to benefit the most – think more Christina Milan than Eva Longoria if you know what we mean.
Of course the bob doesn’t have to be the free-flowing style exemplified by Jenifer Aniston when it first hit the scene. Here the oh-so-gorgeous Jesse J makes a dramatic statement with a slick-back look of her famous jet-black hair, and doesn’t she look fantastic? It just takes a little daring and a want to be just a little bit (not dramatically) different and the results can be astonishing.
Bobs are great whether cut to inch-perfect precision as we can see from this immaculate look presented by Ciara. With high pronounced cheekbones this is the perfect cut to compliment her stunning looks and heart-shaped face – it is hard to imagine her with a more perfect hairstyle.
The total opposite to Ciara’s hairstyle is that sported here by Rita Ora. Carefully styled, yet with the more uneven and ‘unkempt’ look, once again the bob is well suited to the slightly more rounded face. However, with Rita Ora you’ll have to be quick to see her with a bob cut as this girl changes her hairstyle as often as we change our underwear!
