There are few hairstyles more timeless than the bob. No other cut has simultaneously made us feel like we're getting our lives together, and like fierce femme fatales about to take on the world.
Moved up from an entry-level job to corporate? Bob haircut. Moved to a new town and want to start over? Bob haircut. Your boyfriend's not acting right and you're about to set it off, but you'd rather just upgrade your entire life and stunt on him? Bob haircut. Like coconut oil, there really isn't much that a bob haircut can't fix.
If you couldn't tell, we love a good bob. But there are levels to this. What's the next level up? An asymmetrical bob haircut. It not only offers the same confidence-boosting benefits of the classic version, but it also adds a bit of edginess that a regular bob just can't match. And what's life without a little edginess? Boring.
The asymmetrical bob looks great on everyone, and can be rocked curly, wavy, or even with bangs. Plus, you can wear it a million different ways: cornrow one side, add some color, gather just the top into a mini bun. The experimentation options are endless, and summer is the perfect time to transform your look.
