1. A-Line Lob with Blonde Highlights
The A-line lob is longer in the front, and shorter in the back. This cut is eternally fashionable, elegant and ideal for round faces. Don’t you just love everything about this look? We definitely do.
2. Ash Blonde Sombré + Beach Waves
Sombre is the new ombre! So, what exactly is sombre, anyway? It’s a coloring technique similar to ombre, but much softer and blended (subtle + ombre = sombre). Are you digging this trend? We’re kinda loving it – bye bye ombré and hello sombré!
3. Reddish Brown Roots + Blonde Highlights
To achieve these blonde highlights, your ends need to be toned and bleach washed. It sounds like a lot of job, but the end result is absolutely amazing and worth the effort. The combination of blonde and reddish brown hair color make this hairstyle perfect for fall.
4. Caramel Highlights + Big Bouncy Curls
This haircut is easy to maintain and style. Caramel highlights are the perfect way to brighten up your dark brunette hair. They are so natural-looking, that you would almost swear the sun did them.
5. Red & Long Blunt Bob
This dark red hair with a copper balayage effect will give you power and sex appeal. Dull and boring bob styles are a big no no this season, so make sure yours has volume and texture. Start by applying a hair serum to the ends of your hair (never touch the roots). Next grab your favorite dry shampoo and lightly spray it around the crown. Create soft waves using a flat iron. Finish the look with some hair spray.
6. Straight Bob + Blonde Balayage
If you aren’t feeling the textured wavy lob trend, this hairstyle is for you. Blonde balayage mimics the effect of the sun and brightens your face. The top of the hair is left dark, while the bottom and locks around the face are much more lighter. The style is a great choice for brunettes who want to experiment with lighter hair colors.
7. Blonde Bob
Some shades of blonde can look tacky and unnatural on dark skinned women. Therefore, it’s important to figure out the undertone of your skin tone before you opt for this drastic change. Go with strawberry or honey blonde shades, and strictly avoid platinum blonde. We love the way the front pieces are styled, you?
8. Light Purple Bob
Have a bright and bubbly personality? Opt for this colorful style and stand out from the crowd. The style is perfect combination of timeless (bob) and modern (color) elegance. If you look closely, you can notice that the hairstyle features some light blue highlights, too. Stunning!
9. Blonde Ombré Bob
This cut and style offers lots of fullness and movement. The length is great if you want to still be able to style your hair in a ponytail. As you can see, ombré trend is still here which means you can opt for an extreme gradation without feeling unfashionable.
10. Highlights + Lowlights Bob
When you pair painted on highlights with lowlights, you get this effortlessly beautiful, natural-looking hairstyle. We think that the lighter highlights do a great job of accenting layers in this style. The look is suitable for all face shapes.
