And whether you’re into one-length haircuts or medium-length layered hair, there’s bound to be one that suits you.

Here are some ideas on how to rock a long bob haircut. Check them out and get inspiration for your next look.

It may be a straight, simple haircut, but the eyebrow-length fringe makes it a head-turner. Nail this ‘do by using a hair straightener to iron your hair and bangs to keep your ‘do in good shape.

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair sleek and smooth by using TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Shampoo. It has KERA10 Protein Complex, which penetrates your hair up to 10 layers deep. This shampoo also gives your hair 10 salon benefits in one wash! These include making your hair soft and smooth, adding shine, calming frizz, taming flyaways, and detangling knots. 

To get the best results, pair TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Shampoo with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Serum Conditioner. Aside from KERA10 Protein Complex, this conditioner also has oleo serum to deeply moisturize and nourish your hair. 

2. Long Bob Haircut With Beach Waves

Got naturally wavy hair? Just scrunch your hair to give it an effortlessly chic, tousled look. But if you have straight hair, you can create beach waves by using a curling iron to curl your hair one section at a time. Then, scrunch and finger-comb your hair to loosen the waves and create a laidback look.

Editor’s tip: When you frequently use heat-styling tools, your hair may get dry and damaged over time. Keep your hair nourished, lightweight, and beautiful with the help of Dove Botanical Silicone Free Shampoo for Damaged Hair Restore. It is made with 100% botanical oil with pink Moroccan rose extract that restores dry and damaged hair. It even has floating petals that dissolve when you lather for added nourishing power! This shampoo also has a gentle, silicone-free formula, so it’s a great addition to your clean beauty regimen. 

For best results, complement Dove Botanical Silicone Free Shampoo for Damaged Hair Restore with Dove Botanical Hair Conditioner for Damaged Hair Restore.
