A thorough explanation of the 10 most popular straight bobs and their suitable contours.

Straight styles, such as Japanese hair straightening and smoothing, are very popular these days, but many people want to straighten their hair, even if it is not long.

Especially for those with medium or bob-length hair, many people are not sure whether to grow it out or cut it off.

In this article, we would like to introduce some bob hair designs that look good in a straight style.

I am sure this will be useful for those who are thinking of cutting their hair short to a bob, or for those who have a bob now but are thinking of extending it, so please take a look.

What contours of the face suit a straight bob?

One of the reasons why lots of people have trouble with straight bobs is contour.

Many people want to hide their complex parts.

When you have a straight bob, the hair fits around the face, which tends to be a problem for people who don’t want to show their contours clearly.

‘Should people with a complex about their contours not go for a straight bob?’ But you’d be wrong!

The ideal facial contour is an oval shape called an egg shape. Everyone is drawn to this oval shape.

In fact, the kinds of facial contours often referred to as complexes include

  • Round face type
  • Long face type
  • Rectangular type
  • Rectangular type
  • inverted triangle type
  • Diamond type
  • Base type
  • Pear-shaped type

These are divided into such categories as.

People with respective contour problems only try hairstyles that can hide the contours of their face, but they are reluctant to try new hairstyles if they feel that their contours may be visible.

The straight bob introduced here may make many people feel that it is easy to show the contours of their face, but in reality, by considering the bone structure, contours and overall balance when creating hairstyles, such as setting the length and adding layers, it is possible to enjoy straight bob hairstyles without worrying about the contours.

The way to get rid of the complex is to find a hairdresser who can offer you a hair design that suits your contours!

The case of the long-faced woman who wants a straight bob

The problem with long faces, which is often consulted by customers, is that the vertical length between the eyebrows and the tip of the chin is longer than the width of the face, so the length between the hairline and eyebrows, between the eyebrows and the tip of the nose, and between the tip of the nose and the tip of the chin looks almost the same.

In this case, if the length is set to match the chin tip to hide the long face, the contours will be emphasized even more.

In many cases, perms are normally applied to give volume to the sides of the face.

However, if a straight style is used to cover the hair without a perm, the thickness can be added with a haircut, such as graduations or layers.

The case of round faces who want a straight bob

Next to long faces, many customers who suffer from round face contours, who are the most frequently consulted, feel that their entire face looks round and they inevitably don’t want to look cute or childish.

Many people want a sharper jaw or a more mature or make-up-looking contour.

If you tend to look childish, edgy angles and long/short hairstyles are recommended.

If you have a round face, setting the length longer than the chin makes it easier to look taller, and adding length differences, such as down the front, creates sharpness at the ends of the hair, making it easier to look more mature.

Heavy hairstyles and short hairstyles tend to make you look young, like a student, so consult your hairdresser.

Does a straight bob look good without fringes?

Straight bob hairstyles with no fringes tend to look more mature and are recommended for those who want a cool hairstyle.

If you let the ends of the hair hang outwards, the look will change dramatically and you can rearrange the hairstyle.

If the fringes are too long, they tend to look heavy, so if they are set at about the chin to mouth level, they can be easily swept to the side for a good balance.

Does a straight bob with fringes make you look younger?

Straight bobs are very common with bangs, but some people really don’t want to look young.

For such people, one option is to cut the length of the straight bob into a shorter length.

Even with a straight bob, the length setting can greatly change the look and feel, and gradations and layering can also create movement, so it’s a good idea to talk to your hairdresser about the length that suits you best.

I recommend filling in the collar like in the photo to make it look compact while also creating a dynamic hair design!

Can a straight bob be permed to make it look more solid?

For those with straight bobs, many people feel they want movement.

Many people feel that they want to try curly styles if they are always straight with a down style.

For those people, we recommend using a curling iron to create curls or giving them a larger perm such as a digital perm, which looks great.

Straightening your hair can make it harder to do perms, later on, so you should try to enjoy straightening and perming while using acid straightening or hair improvement treatments.

Straight bob and black hair are popular hairstyles for students.

The most popular straight bob style for students is black hair.

With black hair, it tends to look heavy and often fails in a cocky way.

When bobbing with black hair, care must be taken in the way the collar is cut and around the face.

After that, it is very important to adjust the overall volume of the hair and make sure that the back volume is not extremely heavy.

If you are a student or have had the experience of being unsuccessful with a straight bob with black hair, you should pay attention to the above points.

Straight bob hair designs are suitable for people in their 30s and 40s.

Rounded, straight bob popular with people in their 30s and 40s.

Shorter bobs are popular with people in their 30s and 40s.

Hair gradually becomes thinner and less voluminous, so setting the length short will make you look more like an adult woman.

By keeping the neck area tightly packed tight, it looks more mature.

Even with a straight bob, it is easier to create a more feminine look by cutting the ends so that they are soft and rounded.

Light, high-tone straight bob popular with people in their 30s and 40s.

Otherwise, a straight bob combined with a lighter colour is also recommended for people in their 30s and 40s.

Even with a straight bob, you can change the impression of the look significantly by using high tones.

A lighter straight bob is less likely to look heavy and can express lightness, so it goes well with a variety of lighter clothes.

Is a straight bob not enough volume for people in their 50s and 60s?

In their 50s and 60s, aging hair tends to become dry and the top volume tends to flatten and collapse.

Straight bob with layers and tiers is very popular as a hair design that suits such people.

Cutting the hair down to a short bob length makes it easier to style yourself and gives you more volume at the top, making you look younger.

In their 50s and 60s, people tend to rely on perms, which in turn damage their hair and result in hair designs that don’t suit the times.

If you can find a hairdresser who specializes in short hair in your 50s and 60s, you can have a more youthful hairstyle.

Straight bob with a neckline that looks good on people in their 50s and 60s also creates a fashionable Mrs look.

The neckline bob is popular with people in their 20s and 30s, but by creating this neckline, you can cover up the bone structure and emphasize the vertical length of the hair, creating a more slender atmosphere.

The ends of the hair should be set heavier, and the haircut should not be crispy and should give a shiny look.

There are many stray bob styles that can be enjoyed in your 50s and 60s, so enjoy hairstyles at any age.
