Have you ever been annoyed in front of the mirror why your hair falls so flat and lifeless around your face? You are certainly not alone in this After all, all of us who have not been blessed with gorgeous locks have experienced it at some point. Even if you wear a bob that’s supposed to add that extra amount of volume to your hair, you can get into this situation. Luckily, there’s a super easy hack that will make your hair look fuller and more voluminous, regardless of its texture. The so-called rolled bob does not require cutting and layering of the hair, but provides that extra boost of volume that each of us needs. What is the styling technique and how to master it at home, we reveal in the article!
When you see new and more extravagant names in your feed every day, often leading to one and the same bob hairstyle, then you might be wondering different the Rolled Bob could offer. However, this is not about a “new” haircut, but about a method of styling the classic hairstyle.
That being said, the hairstyle trend works for most bob variations An exception are the very short cuts that end at the ears or even higher, because the styling technique requires a certain length. Long and medium-length bob variations such as lobs are ideal, but you can also try the styling trick with chin length.
This bob combines mega volume with a sleek, glamorous finish that we totally agree with. It’s a mix of all the styles that are all the rage lately: the classic blowout, Farrah Fawcett’s ’70s hairstyle, the modern version of the “Rachel cut” and, of course, the classic blunt bob. The styling technique is great for thin hair and makes it look a lot thicker.
How to style a rolled bob: It works with these tips and tools
With the right technique, anyone can style a rolled bob at home and add volume to their hair in no time at all.
If you want to spice up your hair without losing inches, even the professionals will advise you to play with styling instead of length. This works well even on short hair if you have the right tools. So what does it take to style a rolled bob? There are two options.
Create volume with a curling brush
As always, the main thing is to find the right tool for the job. In this case, that means unpacking your electric hairbrush because it takes the heavy lifting out of styling and gets hair into the desired shape quickly and easily. A volumizing product or curling brush is ideal for this, but you can also achieve a similar effect with a straightening brush.
How to do it:
Wash your hair as usual and pat dry.
Part the hair (ideally a side parting) and massage some mousse or a volume product into your hair.
Apply heat protectant and blow dry your hair until about 20 percent moisture remains.
Then start to separate individual strands and blow dry with the curling brush. When doing this, blow dry the lower sections of hair down normally and blow dry the top hair up towards the ceiling. This will create the most volume. Roll the tips of your hair either inwards or outwards, depending on which look you prefer.
Then turn on the cold setting to keep the hair in shape.
Fix the rolled bob with hairspray if necessary and for extra hold.
Style your hair the classic way with a hair dryer and a round brush
If you don’t have a hair dryer brush, you don’t have to order one right away. With a little more effort, but with the same result, you can also use a hair dryer and a round brush. Follow the above guide, using one hand to brush strands of hair and the other to blow dry from a distance.
The most beautiful ideas for the rolled bob
The rolled bob is a versatile styling option for the classic cut. This hairstyle works wonderfully with a blunt bob, because the uniform hair length makes it possible to keep the curl even and blow-dry a perfect shape. But a great effect can also be achieved with slightly layered hair.
Rolled bob with bangs
Long bangs can also complement the rolled bob well, as long as you incorporate them into the styling. The fringe must therefore be long enough to be styled with the curling brush.
When it comes to the styling technique, you can decide whether to blow-dry your hair inwards or outwards.
However, it is not “either or”. Feel free to blow-dry part of the strands inwards, and part – down. Play with the hair to get the effect you like the most.
Create a natural look for your hair
The beauty of trying this styling technique is that you don’t have to fix it. Instead, styling can change the whole vibe of your looks until you wash out and restyle the hair. We’d love to wear this hairstyle over and over again, though.
