Bob Hair Styles





                                               





The bob hair style is for the lucky woman-child with the face and the hair. Color is meaningless, and variations are possible, but the more you vary the bob style look, the farther away you distance yourself from the effects.

The bob style is fundamentally a look that can be seen from a distance. It is cute and innocent, yet dangerous and mysterious. From far away, the woman or girl who sports the style is ageless. Is she young or is she maturing? It's so hard to tell. If she has the pixie chin and the wide bright eyes, the effect is emphasized fourfold.

Despite claims that the bob hair style was invented in the sixties, it has been around since at least the twenties. Included among the photos here you will find the very young and expressive Mary Ann Jackson from Our Gang and the mature and vampish Louise Brooks.

Along came the sixties and Mary Quant adopted the look with mathematics in mind, creating the geometric look. The most notable proponent was Twiggy, who combined with an undernourished body and eyes that were made to look huge above her pixie chin (in essence, a Japanese anime model before Japanese anime was ever imagined), the bob became popular with exploding growth in the year 1967, after appearing the previous year.

The look has experienced moments of popularity, primarily because of the models and actresses who have been able to successful sport the style. The most notable of these in more recent years have been Audrey Tautou in the role of "Amelie" from the great French film by the same name, and Natalie Portman, in numerous roles.

If you have the chin, and you have mostly straight hair, and big round eyes, then give it a shot. Try to cover the eyebrows with the bangs and keep all other distractions at a minimum -- no funny coloring, no big lips, in fact nothing of the matured woman look to spoil the youthful visage that the bob look generates. There are no hard and fast rules, but the more you modify the look with extra length, flipping ends, or anything else, the less the impact. The back should be shorter than the front, and the front not much longer than the chin. Walk into any room with a fully developed style, and you'll be fighting off the suitors with hands and feet. 15hqql.
