It is official—the “wob” or the wavy bob has taken over. It has outdone its cousins, the bob and “lob” and major celebrities like Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lawrence and Beyoncé are sporting the chic cut. We certainly love this effortless, easy to style do and we most definitely think it is the next big thing in 2015.

Here are a few reasons why the wavy bob should be at the top of your beauty and style resolutions this year:

1. Perfect for all hair textures

Wild, curly, naturally wavy, or super straight—the wob will look effortlessly stylish regardless of the texture of your hair. If you have straight hair, use a curling iron to make long, loose curls. When you reel the hair around the iron, make sure to do it twice only so the curls are not too tight. For girls with wavyhair, scrunch it a bit and make it so there are some extra curls on the side. If you have wild curly locks, a simple blow-dry and a few sprays can create soft waves and you are all set.

2. Not much styling necessary

You do not have to wake up early in the morning just to get that perfect wavy do. Sleep on braids and then style your hair with some mousse the next morning and you are good to go. This easy-to-do hairdo is perfec tfor big formal events. Simply apply some finishing cream after blow-drying to keep frizzy and stray hairs under control. Make loose curls with your iron and use a brush or wide-toothed comb to achieve that messy yet effortlessly sophisticated look.

3. Healthy and glowing hair

Less styling means you get hair that is less prone to breakage. Also, there isn’t much need to worry about split ends because wavy bobs stay mid length. The wob is not just stylish but also a ‘healthier’ choice for your hair over other hairstyles.

Do yourself a favour and kick-start 2015 with a brand new and effortless wob. For more style tips and hairstyle trends, keep it right here on Style Magazines.
