Summer Bob Hairstyles – the hot look for clients this summer

The temperature is rising and clients are looking for the perfect style to keep them feeling cool but looking hot. Summer bob hairstyles are ideal for the long days and nights, taking clients from beach to bar and beyond. A bob haircut is so versatile that there is a version for every face shape, hair type and lifestyle.

Mid-Length Bob with Fringe

We love Tay Tay, Taylor Swift’s mid-length bob with fringe. One of the great summer bob hairstyles that can be worn sleek and smooth or with movement and texture for a celebrity beach hair feel.

Jazz Fosker’s intermediate tutorial gives pointers on flat graduation, vertical sectioning, over-direction to maintain length and weight and disconnection. The final result is a flat graduated shape with a soft overhanging disconnection and featured fringe with controlled weight on the outline.  A modern classic and gorgeous summer bob hairstyle.

Shoulder Length Wavy Bob

Emilia Clarke’s shoulder length, wavy bob gives a softer feel and will suit most clients. This true bob has been gently waved to give added interest and movement – easy for client to do on holiday – and there is still enough length to tie hair back.

The Lob

And for those clients who love a bit of length the lob is perfect. As seen on Rosie Huntingdon-Whitely, this summer bob hairstyle shouts sexy glamour.  Ideal with a side-parting or fringe, this shoulder length layered bob looks fantastic when waved or curled.

Alexander Dinter’s advanced haircut is an A-line shape long bob with a disconnected front area.

The final result is a super salon friendly shape with a sub-structure to give support to the movement of the soft layers and loose disconnection. This is a perfect example of excellent simple sectioning and finite technique – another example of great summer bob hairstyles.
