Looking for a new hairdo? We just might have the right one that will have you turning heads but it’s definitely not a look for the faint of heart. If the BET awards are anything to go by; either Blac Chyna, Cardi B, Karrueche Tran and Tamar Braxton have the same hairstylist or we just might be having a major hair trend alert! The bob made a huge come back this year and we have seen it being reinvented into an edgier hairstyle so whether you want a long bob, short one or even asymmetrical one; the bob trend is the current chic. Our obsession however is the blonde bob as seen on various celebrities.
We know the color can be a bit intimidating but yes, even dark skinned people can still rock this trend, the key is ensuring you get a blonde that compliments your undertone/ complexion so for instance if you are more on the darker side; you may want to add some honey/ golden-colored highlights just to tone down the blond color a bit. Obviously platinum blonde won’t work well to compliment your melanin rich skin so please ladies, choose your blondes wisely. Our best piece of advice is to invest in a blonde bob wig at first just so you can experiment and see how it works for you and how you can style it before taking the plunge into chopping off your hair and dyeing it.
You should also keep in mind your face shape before opting for a bob cut; evidently not all of us can get away with a Kim Kardashian or Cardi B middle part but that doesn’t mean you can’t rock this look, the key is to find a way to work around your face shape for example if you have a round face, a side part bob or an asymmetrical bob will work best for you and help to define your features better. Here are a variety of ways you can rock the current blonde bob trend.
Wear it as a side part like Taraji P. Henson
Wear it as an asymmetrical bob like Keri Hilson
Wear it wavy like Karrueche Tran
If you are feeling bold enough, wear it with as a fringe cut like Tamar Braxton
With a middle part like Kardi B
