Heavy Builds: Generally speaking, most women who are heavily-built should avoid wearing a bob
that is too short, since the hairstyle should always be kept in proportion to the overall build. However, if you maintain a bob style
with layering at the top of the head and minimize the volume on the sides, you can create a slimming effect.
The Low-Risk Portion of Getting A Bob:
Going with a shorter haircut can strike terror into even the bravest woman, since if you don’t
like the end result, you are looking at only the passage to time to resolve the problem. But you can always make choices that will
speed up the recovery of your hair from an unsatisfying bob cut. Here are some tips to making your cut as ‘low-risk’ as possible:
Keep It As Long as Is Reasonable: There is no absolute length at which an individual HAS to
cut their bob. Talk to your stylist and insist that he or she keep the length of your bob as long as possible and still have it remain flattering.
Avoid Embellishments: If this is your first Bob cut, go with a classic, simple cut. Avoiding
things like stacking and A-Line cuts so that your overall length is constant, means that if you aren’t happy with the result it will
grow back more evenly and you’ll be able to get a new look sooner. For the same reason, avoid excessive razor texturing and thinning
of the hair. This simply creates uneven lengths that usually have to be trimmed to even them out at the cost of overall length.
Stick With A Cut Only Visit: When you’re getting your first bob cut, try to keep that as your
only hair change. Don’t get a cut along with a perm or color service simply because you want to make sure you don’t “overload” your
perception. For many women, especially when they are unsure about changing their look, having a change in cut AND color or texture
can mean that there is just TOO MUCH change at once. Sometimes it’s not as much a matter of disliking a new look as it is not being
used to the difference. If you minimize the amount of change, then you’ll increase the likelihood that you’ll get used to the changes more quickly.
