This Diffused Curly Bob Style Is The Ultimate Summer Cut

Short hair, don’t care.

If you’re looking to enhance your natural curl pattern, curly bobs are a great summer hairstyle. They add volume to your overall cut and grant you a low-maintenance routine, often only needing a curl refresh in between wash days. For your inspiration, ahead find seven curly bob cuts to test for an extra chic season. @marianaxc_
Blonde Curly Bob

Opt for color this summer with a statement-making blonde curly bob. The short length dramatically cuts down on weight, allowing for extra bounce all summer long.

Lived-In Bob

A slightly longer bob that approaches “lob” territory is an effortless look for summer. For a great salon-worthy finish, try drying curls via plopping, a hair-drying technique that encourages curl definition and eliminates frizz.

Volume Over Anything

Yes, bobs can be very sophisticated when styled straight and sleek. But there’s something about a wavy texture with volume that makes for a real show-stopping look. To encourage volume, work in a texturizing spray at the roots and tease with rattail comb.

Diffused Bob

Layering curls allows each spiral to keep its natural shape, which provides beautiful definition. And for a full effect, scrunch curls with a curl pudding and diffuse to lock in hydration and bounce.

Y2K Chunky Highlights

The ‘90s and early ‘00s aesthetics continue to trend and, this summer, Y2K chunky highlights have found their way on curly bobs, making it a great way to experiment with color without the full commitment.

Au Naturel

Let your curls live their most natural life by air-drying to this full spiral curly bob. In the mornings, simply grab a continuous mist spray bottle to give your hair a refresh without a full wash.

Fringe Summer

Bangs — whether cut straight across, micro, or curtain — help complement curly bobs by emphasizing the face shape and enhancing the cheek bones. When styling, spritz in a shine spray or curl mousse to keep hair from frizzing.
