3 Bob Haircuts for Flawless Short Hair Inspiration

Styling Trends

The bob haircut brigade is out in force. Every summer, a slew of A-listers all rush to the salon for a chin-skimming cut, triggering a wave of cool, copycat hairstyles. This season, Selena Gomez and Emilia Clarke are serving up serious bob inspiration, meaning it’s only a matter of time before you’ll be inundated with requests for similar haircuts.

The trick to ensuring clients walk away happy doesn’t just come down to the transformation. They’ll also be looking for advice on how to maintain and style their new cut. Ensure they add a moisturizing mask, like INVIGO Nutri-Enrich Deep Nourishing Mask, to their kit in order to keep ends soft and smooth in between trims.

Other essentials include a round, vented brush for blowdrying, EIMI Ocean Spritz on days when they want to try a wob (wavy bob) and EIMI Perfect Me for protection through heat styling. After all, a shorter cut can take a little bit of getting used to, so your clients are bound to be ramping up the hot tools as they experiment with new looks.

For more short hair inspiration, keep scrolling to see three cuts we’re loving for the summer months. You’ll want these looks at the ready when clients are undecided on their style of bob…



This piece-y, layered bob relies on shorter pieces at the crown for a volume boost. The result? A perfect canvas for surfer-girl waves with plenty of root-to-tip texture. If your clients opt for this cut, EIMI Ocean Spritz should be their go-to styling hero. If they mist it into damp or dry locks and scrunch, they’ll be working effortless texture in no time.

For a real statement, locks should be chopped to just above the jawline. This style will suit those with angular features, framing the face with an edgy new look that’s sure to turn heads. We recommend your clients use EIMI Flowing Form through mid-lengths to tips to keep this style tamed, without looking stiff.

Perfect two trends in one by teaming a brow-skimming fringe with an ultra-blunt bob cut. This style works best with straight hair, so, after cutting, glide the Pro Straight Color tong through lengths, then hold the shape with a misting of EIMI Dynamic Fix.
