The Italian Bob Is The Chicest Take On The Short Hair Revolution
The Italian bob has a similar casual, carefree appearance to the French bob, but it's a little longer and is cut below the chin, almost kissing the shoulders. The hairdo is also more adaptable because it can be tied up or left down and can have bangs or not, making it a truly fun style to play around with.
Braided Bob
Italian bobs are the perfect solution for those who want a shorter hairstyle but still want to tie their hair into a ponytail or weave in some loose braids. Once you strictly instruct your stylist not to cut your hair above your chin, you can wear your hair any way you like, including a nice and effortless, messy braid.
Air-Dried Bob
One of the best parts of rocking an Italian bob is that it’s easily manageable and requires minimal styling. You can simply wash your hair, add mousse or texturizing spray, and let it air dry, or you can blow-dry your hair and add volume and waves with a diffuser and a round brush.
The Wavy Bob
You can also create an understated and easygoing look, just like Aubrey Plaza or Kaia Gerber, by adding a bit of a wave to your Italian bob. If your hair is pin-straight, use a large-barreled curling iron to create some carefree waves, moving in different directions, without worrying about creating perfect curls.
The Blunt Bob
If you’d like to add some weight to your Italian bob, ask your stylist to leave your ends blunt. While the hairdo requires an equal distribution of volume from the crown of your head to the ends, if your hair is on the finer side, volume can be created by applying mousse and scrunching your strands in sections.
