The bob has been gone a while ago. Bella Hadid was spotted with this iconic hairstyle. If your hair is (finally) long, it is sometimes a risk to take it off again. Therefore a few tips that you want to take into account if you decide to go for this coupe.

Hair Extensions

Unlike celebrities, who change hairstyles every few months, we don't always have the time or money for this. So consider carefully whether you really want the bob to look for a longer period of time.

Hair structure

Have you seen a cool bob? Nice, but keep in mind your own hair structure and maintenance. So ask a hair expert which type of bob suits you and your hair best. And also ask yourself how much time it takes to style the bob.

Face shape

Not only your hair structure, but also your face shape is important. This is not about whether a bob suits you, but more how the bob should be cut. So that it suits you best.


Your bob probably needs a little more maintenance than if you wear your hair in long layers. Especially if you have a 'tight' bob line, you must maintain it well. With this haircut you will soon see if it has become a little longer.


Is your hair 30 cm or longer and would you like it cut off? Then ask your hairdresser if you can donate your hair to a good cause. Note: also find out if you qualify for this. Often you need a certain length and your hair doesn't have to be dyed.

Different types

Celebs are a huge fan of this coupe. Do you not yet know which one you would like? Below some inspiration.
