There's a misconception when it comes to having a bob haircut; people are always telling me how lucky I am to have a haircut where I can just wake up and toss my head back and have perfect hair. Sure, if tossing my head back is code for spending 20 minutes slicking my bangs in place. And unlike long haired gals, there's no ponytails or top knots when your hair is oily and disgusting. When I have those days, I'm just oily and disgusting. So, other than my amazing hairstylist soulmate Michael at SF's Sassoon Salon keeping my A-line high and tight, I'll enlighten you on *a few* other things I need to keep my bob looking clean.
1. Washing every single day, every single morning with conditioner. It's a pain, but it's essential. There's no dry shampoo, there's no running a comb through it. There's only bed head and a hot mess so washing every morning is a must.
2. A really good hairdryer. For a lot of bounce and a lot of shine, you want to have a good blow-out.
3. Hair trimming scissors. To keep the bangs nice and blunt, you have to cut them once every two weeks so learning how to cut your bangs and having professional scissors is a necessity.
4. Hair straightener. Every morning like a brush or a comb, you'll need to run a hair straightener through your hair to keep everything looking straight and in place. Especially for the bangs to maintain their bluntness.
5. And last and certainly not least is to go out there and find your own hairstylist soulmate who knows what they're doing and always says yes to your vision. Michael from Sassoon Salon is my hair doctor, he fixes my hair, keeps it perfect and listens to all my complaints to boot. He is, essentially, the perfect guy.
So you see all you have to do is roll out of bed and wash, and blow dry, and straighten, and cut your bangs and you too can rock this "easy" bob cut.
