If you lack volume or texture in your hair, opting for a layered bob is one of the most suitable styles to request from your stylist. Layered bobs are also ideal for those with thick, bulky hair because to achieve the style, a razor cuts away excess bulk from the body of the hair, leaving it lighter and more manageable. A layered bob is easy to style and only takes a short amount of time to achieve a desired look. Bobs look best with straight hair, as opposed to naturally curly or wavy hair, simply because of the excess volume.

  1. 1

    Wash hair as usual if desired. Blow dry hair completely, and use a paddle brush to remove tangles and flatten hair as you dry.

  2. 2

    Straighten hair with a flatiron. Work around the entire head, making sure that every layer has been straightened. This will give layers a choppy look.

  3. 3

    Scoop out a dab of pomade with a finger and rub it between the fingers to warm up. Grab ends of the hair, and twist the pomade into the hair tips for a textured, piece-y look.

  4. 4

    Flip up edges with a curling iron, if you prefer not to have a choppy look. For an evening look, use the curling iron to create ringlets around the entire head. Allow the curls to cool, and brush through with your fingers.

  5. 5

    Create volume in the crown by teasing it gently and spritzing with hairspray. Pull up a section of the hair over the crown and use a teasing brush to backcomb the hair nearest the roots. Release the hair and smooth out the top with the comb, so that the teased section is hidden. Secure the style with hairspray.
