With the hottest day on record on the horizon, the baby wave bob is the only hairstyle people are asking for in salons RN. From the boyfriend bob to the modern Princess Diana bob, when it comes to low-key and effortless cuts, the bob simply cannot be beaten for a summer style because long, sweaty hair is *not* the one.
The latest iteration of the haircut? The baby wave bob, which hairdressers are touting as the style of the summer because it looks ‘done’ without much effort at all.
“The baby wave bob is the ideal style for those who want a slight wave or curl in their hair, but don’t have time to do it in the mornings,” explains Issey Cooke, hairstylist at Larry King.
“It’s a super relaxed look that is so effortless that you only need to add a few waves to the top section and use a small amount of product such as Larry King Social Life Cream to scrunch into the ends to tame the frizz.”
Issey maintains that this haircut is super versatile for those looking to mix things up, because it can be styled as a beachy, soft everyday look, or a more structured and cleaner style for an evening out. “Another great thing about the baby wave bob is that there is no strict parting; it can be thrown around and worn on different sides, which is perfect for anyone worried about getting the curls in the correct place because it can be messed around and look more playful.”
According to celebrity stylist, Jay Birmingham, the key to nailing this look is getting the cut right, because you want the ends of your hair to be cut quite bluntly to help give weight and definition to the ends of your hair. “You want to ask for soft, feathered layers round your face and throughout your hair to help you create extra volume and even more texture when you wave your hair and style it for summer.”
