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.



We’ve all had those manic mornings where nothing seems to go right, haven’t we? You sleep through your alarm, you can’t figure out what to wear to work, and your hair just doesn’t want to cooperate. Despite our greatest efforts to hide evidence of our frantic morning shuffle, sometimes it still peeks through when we walk through the door with a disheveled hairdo — until now. While your typical messy bun is a standard weekend uniform, the workday requires something a bit more polished.

Cue: the sleek and sophisticated wrap bun. Easy enough to complete in seconds, yet just polished enough to give off the impression that you have yourself together, this hairstyle should be your new go-to for mornings when you’re trying to beat the clock.

How to Create a Sleek Wrap Bun

STEP 1: Brush out your hair so it’s smooth and easy to style and free of knots and tangles.

STEP 2: Flip hair upside down and pull it into a high ponytail at the top of the head. Secure with an elastic hair tie and smooth out any bumps or strays with a brush. To keep flyaways at bay, use a stronghold hairspray to lock it all in. We like L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Strong Hairspray.

STEP 3: Twisting the pony, begin wrapping it into a bun around the base where the elastic sits. Secure the style in place using bobby pins.

STEP 4: To set the style and ensure your hard work doesn’t come loose, give your hairstyle a spritz with hairspray once more.
