Formal retro bob hairstyle for 2013

Having a bob hairstyle brings along many advantages. First of all it is one of the trendiest hairstyles lately so you are sure to look great and fashionista-y. Secondly, it is a short hairstyle and we all know short hairstyles are amazingly convenient. You can wash and dry your hair really fast, you can style it in no time you don’t have to use a lot of product (Hello, money saver!) and you can keep up with regular trims which we all know are incredibly important for the health of your hair. But there is a very strong trend going on right now and a short hairstyle, especially a bob hairstyle, is great for indulging that trend. We’re talking about the retro trend. Anywhere you look, whether it’s a costume party, the red carpet or a theme in a movie, you can see something retro. Retro and vintage go hand in hand and after the vintage craze that started in clothes a while back, the retro trend was bound to pick up. And it really is no surprise or downfall to this. We have amazing retro icons like Marilyn Monroe who are just so inspiring and fun to follow that you can’t go wrong. Celebrities out there are just raging about the retro hairstyle, adopting it every chance they get. So what’s so great and what’s the connection between the bob hairstyle and the retro trend? Well, retro hair means short hair, so we have that down. Also, to get a proper retro hair style you will need some volume in your hair which is usually taken care of through a proper bob hairstyle. There is not much left to do but try a sort of curly bob hairstyle. It is not a totally curly bob, though. To get the best retro look you should try something that isn’t so popular nowadays but works great for what we are trying to achieve. You must keep the hair near your roots straight and your bangs straight, if you have them and make the rest of the hair curly. But not just any curls. Loose romantic curls won’t do. To get that retro look, you will want the type of curls that only curlers can assure. Let’s take a moment to think about how women curled their hair back in the day. Yep, they stood around the house all day or night (or sometimes, both) with curlers propped on their head. The curls that result are quite artificial and not really loved by stylists but it looks great for the retro bob hairstyle. Once you have the curls down (or up?!) and your bangs straightened, all you need is a head band or a feather or just some eyeliner and red lipstick makeup and you are ready to hit the red carpet. Or, err… the party. This is definitely not a day to day look, but it is a really nice twist to your bob hairstyle and you will look great among your retro trend lovers.

It is generally thought that if you have a short hairstyle, you are going to wear the same hairstyle no matter the occasion. It looked like, for a very long time, that only the lucky long haired girls could create special styles according to the occasion they have. But hairstylists and celebrities come to our aid once again and along with them, the internet and our site. We’re talking about those girls sporting bob hairstyles out there who think that such a hairstyle will be the same whether you got to work, go out or go on a date. It is not true and it is so dangerous because you risk growing tired of your bob hairstyle and decide to let your hair grow. And that is a major pity because the bob hairstyle is so trendy and so versatile that possessor of it should just look out for new ways to style it and those girls out there who don’t have a bob yet should definitely try one. It is a good idea to look in some magazines if you need inspiration, because they tend to have the latest trends. Also, you can ask your stylist cause it is a known fact that they tend to get creative based on the client and what the client wants. Also, you might wanna check the internet. It is probably the cheapest way to find the most ideas. Some of them might not be up to speed but it is sure that they will inspire you. A bob hairstyle cannot be easily transformed into a formal hairstyle. Lets say you are going at a business cocktail. All day long at work you show off your stylish bob haircut but you may want to show off something different while attending said cocktail. That is the best way to get in to the center of attention and we all know how women like this. It is not easy, though, to create a formal up do from your bob. A bob hairstyle is short so there is not much hair to deal with. You can’t even make use of a ponytail, let alone a formal up do. So what you will need will be some hair clips and some creativity. Take a look at Selma Blair’s bob hairstyle. It is definitely a normal bob by day and a glamorous bob by bight. All she did was give the hair a little twist and put a hair pin on the side to give it some extra volume and a new shape. All this added up to a glamorous style that made her hair a star and not a boring add-on. Some other ideas are playing with the texture of your bob hairstyle. If you normally wear a straight bob, you could make use of a curly bob. If your hair is naturally curly, straightening it will give a whole different look that is guaranteed to attract everyone attention. Also, you may want to try some slight teasing because this will aid in volume. Finally, if you’re feeling edgy, you could go for crimped bob hairstyle. This is very daring and very creative. But don’t overdo it. Crimping the hair does cause serious hair damage.
