The Sophisticated Bob


The Sophisticated Bob

Although certainly not new, the bob is a true classic. And now there are tons of new approaches for styling them to make them sweet, chic and cool. The experts at Olivia Garden use a thermal brush and a blow dryer to create a voluminous, yet modern bob that is perfect for any face shape. Here’s how it’s done!



  • 1

    Brush and detangle wet hair with the Olivia Garden Fingerbrush Hair Brush. Find the hair’s natural part.

  • 2

    Section off the bottom layer of hair at the nape and pin the rest up with the Double Clip Petite. Blow-dry the hair under using a small NanoThermic Thermal Brush and blow dryer with a nozzle attachment.

  • 3

    Move up toward the crown switching to a larger barrel size as hair gradually gets longer. Dry hair underneath at the root to create the bob and smooth the cuticle. Leave the brushes in the hair to lock-in curls as the barrel doubles as a hot roller.

    At the top of the head, dry upwards to lift roots and create body. For additional volume, blow-dry the top section in the opposite direction than it will be styled so that the roots have maximum lift.

    Use the CarboSilk Rat Tail Comb to tease the hair around the top of the head. Use the tail side to blend the teased sections.

  • 6

    Use the Healthy Hair Combo Boar Paddle Brush to smooth out stray hairs and to give the bob its final look.
