The bob haircut is loved by women all over the world. It looks very stylish, easy and quick to fit, appropriate in any environment. However, when planning a wedding, some brides are confused, not understanding how to create an image with such a haircut that matches the theme of the ceremony and is both romantic and spectacular. Fortunately, today professional hairdressers are able to bring to life absolutely any ideas: from retro styling to the avant-garde.
Stylish ideas for haircuts of different lengths
The easiest way, of course, is to choose a styling for a classic medium bob. Most often, the bride has curls that become an excellent “base” for both a light feminine look and a bright and slightly provocative one. Of course, preference is given to large waves — small ones themselves look very cheap and unnatural, and in a short haircut they can also change the shape of the face not for the better.
Curls are recommended to be left in a free state or laid in a voluminous beautiful bundle. Combined styling with suitable wedding accessories always looks good. As a rule, to create it, elements of the same style are combined with traditional curls.
Creating a hairstyle begins with a “frame” of the face — such that in a favorable light it highlights the advantages of its type and hides its shortcomings. Be sure to take care of the clarity of the lower cut. Next, a volume is formed on the top or back of the head, to create which you will need a hairdryer, a round comb or special devices. There is no need to strive to make a hair-to-hair hairstyle — excessive sleekness adds age, while slight tousle symbolizes lightness and youth.
The next step is to sort out the curls a little, again to avoid puppetry. The finished hairstyle is decorated with flowers or a perfumed veil.
If we talk about jewelry, then fresh flowers look very impressive with a square. Either one large flower is selected, or several miniature buds forming a wreath. By the way, if the bride is afraid that the plant will quickly lose its presentable appearance, then it makes sense to change it for a product made of polymer clay. A professional will make the accessory no less beautiful, but much more reliable.
In addition, there are numerous variations of special hair accessories: hairpins, brooches, tiaras, embellished hairpins, ribbons, feathers and even the most unconventional details. The only important condition is that these elements must be combined with a thoughtful image of the bride.
Possible headgear includes a veil, hat and veil. The veil can be attached to a hoop or ribbon, depending on what is more appropriate for the chosen style. Another option is to fix the decorative element from below, under the hair. A long veil must be made of fine quality material and combined with an open light dress.
The shade of accessories is matched to the color of the hair — it should be contrasting. That is, brunettes need pastel colors, and blondes need quite bright and noticeable ones. When creating an image, it is important to avoid excesses — lush, varnished hairstyles with sparkles and overhead elements are completely optional.
If you turn to a professional, then you don’t have to worry that the length of the hair will be insufficient for a beautiful hairstyle. In addition, there is a very real opportunity to use false curls to achieve the required parameters. In the salon, you need to have several fallback options in case it is impossible to recreate the original idea and do not forget about the “fitting”, which is necessary not only for the dress, but also for the hairstyle. Finally, harmony should be maintained between the dress, hairstyle, accessories, the theme of the celebration and even the personality of the bride. As a rule, romantic moods require naturalness and accuracy of styling, while original ideas require volume and impressive accessories.
Long and with extension
Popular wedding hairstyles of the bride can also be performed on an elongated bob haircut — in this case, any such hairstyle turns out to be very feminine and elegant. As a rule, it requires asymmetry, but you can experiment with a straight parting. Usually, all hair is combed to one side, volume is formed on the back of the head, and those strands that have turned out to be elongated curl in neat curls. As a decoration for such a hairstyle, a large hairpin with shimmering pebbles looks good.
A long square can be removed in a neat bundle. In front, the strands are combed or lifted in a different way, then they are removed into a neat bun at the crown or back of the head. Several strands are released and curled into slightly careless curls. The hairstyle itself is decorated with fresh flowers or elegant accessories.
If the length allows, then a talented hairdresser can repeat many hairstyles that long-haired brides choose. For example, it will be possible to make an aristocratic “shell” with a pair of released strands, decorated with pearls. Or decorate the wedding image with braids — wrap them around a bunch or form a headband.
Lovers of the Greek style will appreciate the creation of a hairstyle with a wreath. In this case, light curls are formed from the main part of the hair, and several long strands at the temples are twisted into flagella.
A short bob allows you to create a very stylish hairstyle with a veil, in the case when even side strands are removed from the face. They either curl and stab from below the back of the head, or curl and style in curls, or they rise above the forehead and stab at the back of the head into a bun. This hairstyle is perfectly complemented by a dress with an open back or a deep neckline. It is important to mention that the veil should not be classic — it is better to give preference to a retro style accessory.
Styling with an additional parting also looks spectacular on short hair. In addition to the usual (straight or side parting, which should not be long), a neat transverse section is formed on the top of the head. In the same area, it is important to increase the volume with the help of brushing or regular bouffant. Such styling does not require additional fixation — the hair should lie naturally. The simplest hairstyle on a short bob requires whipping the hair at the crown and adding an unusual headband, flower wreath or even a tiara.
Bob-caret is a very fashionable haircut, which is obtained thanks to several layers and a graduated bottom cut. It is most convenient to transform it into a romantic styling by combining vertically twisted curls and the remaining soft waves or straightened strands. Volume must be added only at the crown. It should be added that the parting in this case can be both zigzag and simply asymmetric.
If you don’t want to be so puzzled, then you can treat your hair with mousse and twist the ends of the hair outward. In another case, the strands are lifted and secured with pins.
The asymmetry of the haircut always allows you to create a memorable hairstyle. For example, on the one hand, you can create various neat weaves, and on the other, leave it free and voluminous. Eccentric brides are advised to do something radical and simple: shave their keychain. Surprisingly, this hairstyle harmoniously fits into many images. Finally, the classic solution is to make bangs on one side.
Laying caret with bangs
Quite often, girls with squares style their hair in the style of the fifties: bangs and a small pile in the root zone are performed. The inspiration usually comes from The Great Gatsby characters and photographs of stars from the 1920s-1960s.
To create such a hairstyle, you need to make one standard side parting and another one in the crown area. Next to the second parting, a couple of strands are separated, which are given some volume. Of course, the easiest way is to simply comb them, but you can also use large curlers or a hair dryer. The rest of the hair is styled in smooth waves using a professional mousse.
If the bride wants a veil, then the size of this accessory must be adjusted depending on the size of the bangs: the longer the bangs, the shorter the veil should be. Alternatively, you can replace it with an elegant veil. In addition, if the bangs do not fit in the right way, then you can simply leave it in its usual form.
The simplest styling option does not even require hiding the bangs: you can simply remove the hair from behind in a natural bun and add, if desired, a couple of accessories. In the event that there are fears that the bangs will interfere during the celebration, it must be curled along with the rest of the curls and fixed in the total mass of hair.
It should be clarified that the main requirement for creating such a styling with bangs is uniformity. This suggests that it is categorically not recommended to combine straight bangs with curls — this can only be done if the wave starts from the middle of the hair. It is better to complement such a detail with a shell, a bunch or a Greek variation.
It is more convenient to curl an elongated bang with the total mass of hair and put it aside or use it to form a pigtail or rim. In the event that this detail is undesirable, it will have to be stabbed at the top or to the side. It is important to carefully record all the transformations, especially for owners of thick hair.
For a wedding event, many brides prefer gentle and romantic looks, for example, in the Greek style. Hair must be decorated with a golden rim, left loose or put in a neat low bun. A light dress with an open back, pumps and a few suitable jewelry will help to complete the look. In the case when a veil is present in the image, styling can be minimal. It is enough to create curls and remove them from the face, and a delicate accessory that combines both fabric and elegant jewelry will complete the job.
Some styles of the thinnest veil require a smooth “base”, so to create an image, the hair must be straightened and secured in a low bun. A metal rim with floral motifs and sparkling pebbles is worn over the fabric.
