The bob hairstyle

Believe it or not, there are many ways to style a bob hairstyle. You can either go for the classic bob or experiment with the conventional version and style it to compliment your looks.

For instance, you can go for a shoulder-cut bob with many layers. The layers make the hair look thick and tend to give it volume. It also looks quite stylish. You can also go for a rounded bob with bangs in front. It looks better when the hair has a slightly wavy texture. Similarly, if you have curly hair and want to go the bob hair route, you can add layers to avoid your hair from looking boxy.

A classic rendition of the bob is slightly longer hair with sidewise partition. However, the long bob or lob also looks good with a center partition and gives you an edgy look. Some highlights take the cut up a notch and make it look even more refined.

The pixie hairstyle

Like the bob, the pixie can also be worn in many ways. You can go for a small classic pixie with hair very short all over. It is bold yet makes you look endearing at the same time.

However, if you want to experiment, you can go for the long pixie, aka the lixie. This hairstyle is usually shorter in the back and the sides, and is longer on the top and has bangs. If you have thin hair with a little body, the lixie is a good choice for you.

You can add further modifications to the lixie if you want to experiment further. You can add fringes to the front or even add an undercut.

The good thing about short hair is, it always grows back. If you get a short haircut and feel it wasn’t right for you, you can always grow it out. However, once you cut your hair short and enjoy the freedom that comes with it, you may find it hard to go back to long hair.
