Razor-cut French Bob with totally natural texture in a shape and style that reflects the 1960s is one of the major short hair trends that we will get to see more and more of in the following months. To create this type of texture that adds volume and body even to fine hair that tends to fall flat at the crown or gets oily on the bangs, however, you will need to pay extra care to your daily hairstyling routine. If you follow these steps, you are sure to rock curly bob hair without a doubt!

Curly bob hair is also great for framing your face. The strands of hair curl more than straight hair, so you will have to stretch them to make them look longer. Raking them backward is another great way to avoid a part. This technique will create more volume on top of the head. It also eliminates the need to tease the hair. Just make sure that you do not use too much hairspray.

A curly bob is versatile and flatters any face shape. This hairstyle adds length to the front of the hair and complements rounder faces. You can wear it as a bob or pull it back when you feel it needs some extra length. This versatile hairstyle is easy to style and maintain. But remember that it doesn’t have to look good all the time. It can make you look younger and more confident!
