The bob originated over a century ago; it gained popularity in the early 20th century. Women sought its convenience when engaging in the war effort during World War I. The Roaring 20's saw it become more than only convenient. The short bob was the hairstyle of the chic and stylish flappers.
After the 1930's it fell out of favor. Reborn in the 1960's at the dawn of the Beatles and social upheaval surrounding the Vietnam War. Since then, the short bob has been going strong, supporting women with versatile and easy-to-manage styling regimes and gracing album covers, television, and movie screens. Whether you're Cyndi Lauper, Uma Thurman, or an office manager, at some point you have found this the ideal cut.
A few ideas.
Curls don't mean you can't do bangs. In fact, a half tamed, half wild wavy fringe gives a short look some extra vitality. Dare to go extra short on the sides but keep your longer curls billowing from across the top. It's sexy, easy to handle and perfect for this year's hair trends. Balayage works insanely well for curly hair. Lightening the ends and incorporating some serious layers adds a multi-dimensional level to your 'do that you just can't beat.
Don't be afraid to go super short for curly hair. Keeping a couple of longer sections at the front to create a side fringe will keep you feeling feminine. The curls will create all the volume by themselves, so zero work for you. Short, curly haircuts are in this year and the huge variety of options available means that anyone with natural curls should be jumping on the trend band-wagon and everyone with straight hair will be digging out the curling irons to coif the perfect look.
