3 Life-Changing Bob Hairstyles Every Woman Over 40 Should Try To Instantly Look 10 Years Younger
Spring has finally arrived and with the change of the season comes the undeniable urge to switch up your look as well. A good haircut can help to make you appear younger, enhance your natural texture, and overall boost your confidence so it’s important to know which styles to turn to when you’re looking for a change. The bob is one of the most classic haircuts you could try and is universally flattering for all face shapes. This spring, these are the three bob styles you need to bring to your stylist to update your appearance and instantly look younger.
Reverse Cascade Bob
Offering a fresh spin on the basic bob, this style provides a modern shape which allows you to appear more stylish and youthful. “This reverse cascade bob with an asymmetrical fringe and straightened hair is an excellent everyday option that doesn’t require much time for morning styling,” says Monica Davis, professional hair stylist and founder of the MyStraightener blog.
“The clear slanted cut makes your neck visually longer and adds freshness to your look along with thoroughly straightened hair. This option is great for both fine and medium hair or any color, including silver hair.”
Classic Wavy Bob
Adding some texture to your bob is another great way to inject some youth into your look. “Vintage can never get old. Wavy styling, asymmetrical hair parting, and a straight jaw-level cut can make anyone look fresher and even more vivacious. A huge benefit of such styling is that you can easily repeat it at home once you see how your hairstylist does it. This option is amongst the best for thick hair,” says Davis.
Cascade Bob With Fringe
Bangs are one of the trendiest styles of the season, so cutting some fringe into your bob will instantly elevate your appearance. Davis explains, “Although the idea of a bob with a roughly slanted hairline isn’t new, it still looks impressive and remains trendy in 2021. The idea is to create a 45° line from the back of the head and to the point 3-5” below the chin. The hair parting must be symmetrical for the right effect.”
