In case you missed it, the boyfriend bob is the cool, androgynous hairstyle that's currently taking over 2021. Although the term itself is quite new to the game, this short chop has been on-trend for a while! It's actually a go-to for models (it has a ton of different variations), so if you've been meaning to try the look, you can definitely get some inspo from them.
Keep scrolling for some boyfriend bob hairstyles you can try, as seen on these Pinay models:
How to Style a Boyfriend Bob
1. French Girl Chic
For something easy yet chic, style your chin-grazing chop with a middle part and tuck the sides behind the ears after a blowout. It's a look that fits just about any event, from a quick errand to fancy afternoon tea. Like Maureen Wroblewitz, you can opt to pop a hat on for some extra oomph.
2. Textured Waves
Jach Manere's version of the boyfriend bob takes some cues from the modern shag. She usually wears it down with some textured waves, which you can cop with a few quick twists of a curling iron and finishing spray.
3. Flat Iron Waves
A flat iron is all you need to get Danica Magpantay's soft waves. Start by running the iron through your hair, and once you get to the middle, twist the iron inwards and then outwards to create a small bend. Repeat this process all throughout and run your fingers through your locks to achieve that "undone" vibe.
4. Casual and Polished
If you have a cheekbone-length bob with a full fringe like Gucci model Hannah Locsin., a blowout can go a long way for adding body to your tressses. But for a sleeker finish, spritz some texturizing spray on roots for volume then run a straightening iron over the lengths to add a gorgeous shine.
5. Tousled Beach Waves
A tousled wavy bob like Sharina Gutierrez's gives the illusion of thick hair and effortlessly frames the face (parting your hair in the right place matters, too). It's also a sexy, glamorous hairstyle worthy of a red carpet look!
6. Outward Flips
If David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust hair were a boyfriend bob, it would definitely look identical to this retro-chic look on Elite Model Look Philippines representative and s member, Reins Mika. You can achieve this style by gelling your tresses down from the sides, then ironing the ends to get those outward flips.
7. Sleek Side Part
