Curly French Bob

A curly bob looks great at any length: chin, jawline, or cheeks. To keep frizz at bay, style with a lightweight leave-in conditioner.

Dramatic Fringe Bob

Pomade is the hero product for piece-y French girl fringe. A lightweight pomade will add great texture and bounce, as well as keep strands in place.

Undone Tousled Bob

The best thing about an undone French bob? It's super low maintenance. This requires just a texturizing spray to get natural tousled waves. For an enhanced look, opt for a diffuser.

Supermodel Bob

If supermodel hair is your mission (*raises hand) this one is for you. For texture: let hair either air-dry or blow-dry it without a brush. For movement: opt for a sea salt spray to create a slight bend. Top with a shine mist.

Voluminous Bob

If you’re after a bouncy, full French bob, add a texturizing spray to dry hair for enhanced definition, shine, and volume. It’s a great tool on wash day and three-day-old styles that have fallen flat.

Slicked Back Style

The difference in the slick-back style, compared to a traditional French bob, is of course the length. This longer style is also great to transition into colder months as it is perfectly at home paired with hair accessories. Beret anyone?

Messy Long Locks

This is a great style that can be worn by anyone, regardless of hair texture. Add a bit of hairspray or anti-frizz serum and you’ll be good to go.
