Every few months, I get this urge to cut my hair and get a bob. I had a 1950’s-inspired bouncy bob once, and let me tell you, it changed my life. And recently, I’ve been spending much of my time in a never-ending daydream of reminiscing and searching for bob hairstyles on dark hair.
What I adore about the bob is how understated it is while still looking like a simple cut. It still requires plenty of skill from the hairstylist to make it look so effortless, but it’s generally a manageable style.
The reason why I’m inching closer to the crop is that with a few styling tweaks and techniques, you can pretty much have a different hairstyle every day when you get this cut.
