HOW TO GROW OUT A BOB AND STILL LOOK GOOD WHILE DOING IT

Bobs are without a doubt having a moment right now with so many of our favorite celebrities ditching their length and opting for a chic, cropped cut. If you’ve recently chopped off your length for this shorter hairstyle then you know it’s a never-ending cycle of cutting your hair, only to want to grow it back out again.

If you’re feeling like it’s time to grow out your hair, let’s get right to it: We spoke with hair guru Zachary Morad to get some tips on how to grow out a super short bob.

Bob Haircut Tip #1: Messy Always Works

If you’ve found yourself in that awkward in-between phase of growing out your bob, you probably feel like your hair has lost all of its oomph. Maybe it’s falling flat or maybe your blowouts are coming out a little too rounded. Regardless, try wearing it messy! This will work with both straight hair or hair that has a bit of natural texture to it.

To add a little texture to the style, use a pomade and heat it up in your hand with a blowdryer. Once the product is softened, flip your head over and run your fingers through your hair. This messed-up style is the perfect way to give your hair a little extra kick.

Bob Haircut Tip #2: Stay on Schedule
When aiming for growth, your first inclination might be to refrain from trimming your hair, but this is the wrong mindset. One major way to keep your hairdo looking fresh while growing out a bob is to stick to your cutting schedule. Morad recommends cutting it every eight weeks to keep the ends of your hair from splitting.

Bob Haircut Tip #3: Accessorize

We are constantly seeing hair accessories popping up on runways and red carpets. Take advantage of this trend to make your hairstyle look more put together in the midst of growing it out. You can try crystal bobby pins to secure one side of your hair back or even an elaborate headband when you’re unable to do a ponytail. Accessorizing won’t only aid you in the process, but it will also bring your look to a new, of-the-moment level.

Bob Haircut Tip #4: Give It a Pop of Color 
The process of growing your hair out can definitely lead to some drab days. I like to make my clients feel fabulous during this time by switching up their color, says Morad. Whether it be adding baby highlights to brighten or dramatic ombré to lend a little edge, giving your hair a color boost can add some zest to even the dullest of days.
