The Curly Bob Trend Is Making Me Want to Cut My Hair Immediately

Sleek bob hairstyles are so popular right now, and I can totally see why. Not only do they look chic, but they are also a great low-maintenance option for those of you who don't want to spend hours getting ready in the morning. That being said, I've always been reluctant to give the hair trend a go myself because my hair has a natural curl to it, so I know that a super-sleek finish would be harder to achieve.

So, when I saw that the curly bob hair trend was on the rise, I couldn't have been happier. This style of bob is all about embracing your natural texture, and it's one of the prettiest hair styles that I have seen all year. This style is ideal for wavy, curly and coily hair types, however you can also easily add loose waves or bouncy curls to your hair with the right products and a good curling wand.

What I love about this style is that there are so many different ways to wear it. If you want a more laid-back, effortless look, opt for beachy waves and a tousled fringe. For a bit of glitz and glamour, why not go for classic pin curls and a dramatic side parting?

Whatever look you want to achieve, we've got all the curly bob inspiration you need. Keep on scrolling for some of my favourite inspo pics and my top product recommendations so you can style your curly bob at home.
