Old-fashioned Bob with Bangs
Q&A with the style creator Candyce DeMarc
Owner / Barber @ Pioneer Barber Company in Seattle, WA
What do you think of this style? What is your most favorite part about it? If I look at her hairstyle, I imagine a mixture with a classic bob like Louis Brooks with its defined lines, retro-inspired bangs , and rough cut that has the class and class of a younger Isabella Rossellini. The edges that are slightly textured provide a modern look while the angles of the cut, being shorter in front and curving at the back gives it that fun flapper look.
What products would you recommend to keep and revive the look? The products I would recommend for this look would be mousse and texture sprays to prevent it from becoming too soft and flat. lots of hairspray to help hold the hair in place, and a small amount of silkening serum applied to the ends. I also love putting hair powder everywhere!
What kind of person do you suggest this style for? I love this short hairstyle that is perfect for vintage ladies as well as women and girls at any age. It’s especially gorgeous for those with a more round face, softer features , or an extended neck to convey the vintage vibe of this look. It is a great look to wear with no or minimal makeup or hairstyling, for an elegant look or put together with bold lips, makeup and a headband or barrette for the night out.
Graduated Angled Bob
Q&A with style designer, Tiffany Shuck
Hairstylist @ VAIN in Seattle, WA
What would you say about the look? What is the most appealing thing about it? It is a graduated angled hairstyle. Back hair is cut at the hairline, while the front is positioned to be mid-neck if the hair is wet or straight. I love the sleek, clean lines that the back produces and the texture seen as the hair curls. What products would you recommend to keep this style? If you’re a woman with fine hair I would suggest applying Deva Curl B’Leave In and UltraDefining Gel. For hair that is longer I would suggest applying R+Co Twister and Aircraft. What kind of client do you suggest this cut for? Anyone with any hair type can wear this bob cut short. Just take into consideration that if you hair is straight and fine it won’t be able to notice the cut as much as someone who has curly hair. This style can be extremely slimming and can be a great match for any face form, but especially those with an elongated face.

What do you think of this style and what’s the most appealing thing about it? This style as a very roaring 1920s inspired Bob and modern look. It’s very fun and artistic. The thing I love about it is the simple maintenance and styling, as well as the coolness of the disjointed framing at the front.
What products would you recommend to keep and recreate this style? For this style I suggest the use of a small round brush to shape hair’s bevel as well as the bangs as well with some Kevin Murphy Anti Gravity spray to increase volume. To add shine, I applied my L’Oreal Shower Shine finishing spray. If you’re looking to create more of a textured appearance then you can try Kevin Murphy Freehold Cream. What kind of customer would you recommend this style for? I would suggest short bobs with bangs to those with longer hair and who likes to dress their hair down or who likes having their face more frame-like.

It’s that elegant style for any woman who loves classics and the flexibility to the adventurous! Simply by adding a texture spray such as Eufora Full Effect, you can add volume and texture. You can also use the curling wand, place it in a beach-like wave. Then end using Eufora style details Dry Spray Wax.

Natural Graduated Cut

Hairstylist @ Rocco Altobelli in Roseville, MN
What would you say about the look? What is your most favorite part about it? This is a natural, graduated hairstyle and a soft push to the sides. The shorter strands can be used to style. My favorite part about it is that it allows you to round the brush, curl it, wave or straighten the style.
What products would you recommend to keep and recreate this style? If the hair is damp I apply an oil-based medium hold spray. I enjoy Rocco Altobellis spray gel because it contains a heat-protectant within it, the rhatany root. It also gives body, volume , and shine. It is also fast drying. Brush the hair round and style using any heat tool you like. Finish the look with redken’s Wind Blown 5 dry finishing spray. This gives a matte look with a dry, unfinished texture. What kind of client do you suggest this style for? This style is perfect to anyone who is looking for a young, and spirited haircut. Any hair type can be rock this style.
Modern Bob With Fringe
This style is very modern. It’s easy and simple which makes it ideal for women who don’t need to be too fussy and still appear “done”. The bangs can make all the difference! They add an edge that doesn’t require an overwhelming commitment. It might not look like it but there was amount of texturing that went into creating this cut. No matter how rough or smooth it’s still gorgeous. Who would have thought that a simple smooth, textured, single-length bob with bangs could look so elegant?
If your hair naturally straight or doesn’t have much texture, you should try Kerastase Fluidissime Thermal Frizz Protective Spray as well as Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother. Both are light yet effective. If you have hair that is thick that needs to be held and styled make use of Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Nourishing Styling Creme or the Creme de la Creme blow-drying cream from Kerastase. The appeal of a shorter hairstyle with bangs is that it can be customized to suit your needs. Just like any short cut it’s important to have a certain level of commitment.
