According to Vickery, the layered-bob hair trend involves “a bob-length haircut, ranging from collarbone length and up, with layers incorporated based on the chosen length.” She recommends keeping layers minimal when it comes to shorter hair, as this will help keep that slight “swing” effect. As well as removing weight and adding movement, subtle layers can help add a bit of texture to the hair, making it an easy way to switch up your blunt bob this January.
When it comes to this haircut, Vickery says that personalisation is key when deciding on the extent of layering. “If the hair is thicker, excessive layering might result in bulkiness,” she explains. “Similarly, for finer hair, removing too much weight from the bottom may compromise the strength and shape you desire.” She recommends consulting with your stylist to choose the right kind of layers for you, whether that’s a few face-framing pieces or a more choppy haircut overall. “The goal is to create a hairstyle that not only looks great but also suits your lifestyle,” she says.
