In my opinion every single article should start with a few words about the title and because today we invest so much in hairstyles, accessories and everything that is related to our precious hair, I want to make a short introduction to the history of the bob hairstyle.
1920, the year when the women around the world started to make a change to shorter hairstyles. Easy to maintain, fair enough, but expensive and sophisticated for that time. By now, everyone knows that when we want something expensive and sophisticated are two words that simply don’t exist in our vocabulary. Apparently back then was the same. In that time women started to have short haircuts when they wanted to get away from their past, was something like short hair equivalent with fresh new life. These women were considered independent, progressive and willing to take out risks, fearless. So, let’s come back in our time and stick out a big conclusion: we didn’t change at all, we still love fashion, we still love to look good and to take care of us, even that sometimes beauty is pain.
Enough with history lessons, let’s get chic with some glamorous short styles! If you want to switch it up this is the right moment, take some style inspiration from us.
#1 Pixie cut
Found on: agnautacouture.com
I really need to start with the spectacular Audrey Hepburn, even that I said that history lesson is over. Named pixie cut in our days, Audrey’s hairstyle had lot’s of funny names in that time: the poodle, the bouffant or the flip. More interesting than her short haircut is the story behind it, but I’m going to let you search it and read it. Pixie cut is usually a really short haircut, but you can leave a long fringe out, if it doesn’t bother you, like in a classic bob; after all bob haircut is just a long pixie cut. So, if you want a vintage touch, this is your hairstyle!
