It’s hard to tell the difference between the many variations of the bob haircut, but here’s a bullet bob explanation. It can be useful when trying to describe it to your hairdresser. Sometimes showing a photo is not enough. So, to be sure you get what you want, explain this to him:

The bullet bob is an evolved version of the cut known as the “Wolf Cut”. These are the mullet and shag styles, which have been very popular for the past two years, although super retro, extravagant and spunky. This year they get a more elegant and delicate look. How ? In 2023, we will combine the “wolf” cut with the French square. Sounds amazing, right?

Check out Florence Pugh’s photo above. She is the perfect example of how to wear the Bullet bob. To achieve this look, cut a tapered, layered Wednesday Adams-style bob that hits just above your shoulders. Then add a shorter, detailed layer that reaches the hollow of your cheekbones. This will frame your face and modernize the mid-length bob.

So if the classic French bob seems boring and overly conservative to you, this variation is perfect for you.

Are you tired of wearing bangs? It’s the perfect time to adopt the Bullet bob since it incorporates the curtain fringe which pushes back to perfection. What’s also great is the versatility of the style that can fit any face shape and even gender. Do you remember Billy Hargrove in Season 3 of Stranger Things? He is the perfect example that also proves that this haircut works equally well with curly hair as well as straight hair.

This type of bob works best when you give it a dynamic, messy-style texture. So it’s best to air dry your hair with a generous amount of leave-in conditioner. You can also add light waves with a flat iron on low heat once the hair is completely dry.

For special occasions, you can try different hair accessories. The headbands are perfect on this type of bob as well as the colored barrettes on the side. And if you want more inspiration to cut your hair short, you can check out the Blogger bob, which is one of the trendiest haircuts at the moment.
