Is the long bob right for me?
Long before even consider curtain bangs, you are probably wondering if the long bob is for you. To be honest, probably yes, because it’s a “universal” haircut that suits all body types. On the one hand, hair that is neither too short nor too long, stopping at shoulder level, tends to elongate a round or square face while softening the overly pronounced mandible. On the other hand, when the long bob is slightly wavy, it adds side volume to the elongated oval face. But what about the long bob with curtain bangs?
What face does curtain bangs work for?
The good news is that curtain bangs are just as forgiving as the XL bob, or almost. Having an A silhouette, the curtain bangs is very useful when you want to elongate, but also refine a round face or a square face. If your face is more rectangular, leave the sides of the bangs longer and cut the center short to achieve the same effect! As usual, ladies with oval or heart-shaped faces can afford everything, including a long bob with curtain bangs.
What factors to consider at 50+?
Yes, age is just a number and it’s all about charisma, but we have to be honest and admit that some things become less and less appropriate with the passing years. So, is the long bob with curtain bangs one of the hairstyles to avoid after 50 or 60? Fortunately, no… as long as you observe a few precautions dictated by subjective factors.
Around the age of fifty, significant hormonal changes occur that can announce, accompany or follow menopause. Of course, it is a completely natural phenomenon, but that does not mean that all of its effects are pleasant. From a hair point of view, feeling your scalp dry, losing more hair than usual and complaining about fine, brittle hair that is difficult to tidy are quite common inconveniences. So what can you do?
The first good thing to do is to choose a hairstyle that does not require too aggressive intervention to preserve its good appearance. This includes excessive heat treatment, but also excessive washing with cosmetics, frequent dyeing, etc. The other step towards looking healthy and chic is to choose the long bob with curtain bangs that will best suit our own hair type.
Which bob hairstyle for which type of hair?
For example, if you have thin and relatively sparse hair, a slightly tapered medium length bob will be more suitable than a long bob with curtain bangs. The reason for this is that longer lengths tend to look flatter and thin hair already lacks volume. Either way, if you want to keep the length at the shoulders, the long wavy bob can add aesthetic movement and save the day.
In case your hair is thick, a layered haircut is a very good solution. Finish it with some nice waves that will give your hairstyle more texture and you’re done.
