What’s cool about Jessica Szohr’s hairstyle is its natural texture, a bit of disheveled bob, and those subtle layers – which, by the way, make it an effortless look. Take inspiration from Jess and keep the look well-textured with regular trims, an anti-frizz serum, and a volumizing mousse.

The wavy bob is a versatile hairstyle! You can make it look shorter by enhancing the wave definition. However, avoid adding waves right from the root. Start midway to make them look more natural.

5. Pulled Back Hairdo

Actress Rita Ora looks edgy and trendy with her white blonde hair pulled back into a symmetric bob. The textured hairdo allows you to clearly see her hair color and gorgeous facial features. So good you just want to recreate it ASAP.

If you want to change your hairstyle, consult a hairstylist and always have a buffer of weeks or months. Alicia Igess, a hairstylist, cautions, “There are so many hairstyles to try. Do it when you don’t have anything to do. Don’t try anything new when you are traveling or have a big event.” This helps reduce the risk of ruining your look, allow the haircut to settle, and you will have enough time for corrections.

6. Sleek Ponytail
