New stylish bob hairstyles for 2009 - medium haircut trends, from graduated to blunt bobs, curly or straight with beautiful hairstyles pictures.
But its main selling point is that it's the most versatile haircut around - it has the femininity of longer hair, but without the maintenance and can be worn sexy and edgy like short hair without losing too much length.
The secret to making the style work for you is to choose the right length for your face shape. Details such as where you want your parting and what kind of bangs you choose - if you want bangs - can make all the difference.
For fine hair types, ask your stylist to cut your hair in a graduated style, where it's shorter at the nape of the neck, with longer layers on top, that will instantly provide you with great volume.
If thinking about getting a bob, proceed with caution if you hair is very curly - you could end up with a 'fro', unless this is what you go for.
The poker straight finish is utterly timeless, but long layered side bangs make it fresh and 'now', whether worn sweeping across the eye or tucked behind the ear.
Blow-dry hair smooth using a medium-sized round brush, create a hint of volume at the roots and finish by curving the ends with a flat iron and misting with hairspray.
Flip your head upside down and shake out before running texturizing product through.
Heat-styling can make your bob look dull and lifeless, so use a heat protection spray to maintain your hair's shine.
