Before You Get Your Bob Haircut
Having a short haircut has many positives, but before you decide to get your bob haircut, there are a couple things that you should know. First of all, although washing your hair will go much faster with short hair, it may take longer to style and dry. Depending on your style of bob, you may need to spend a good amount of time drying and styling to achieve your perfect bob.
Also, if you are going from long to short hair you may notice a difference in your hair texture. When your hair is cut shorter it looses the weight that was holding it down. This may cause for new waves and curls to appear.
Lastly, you will all of a sudden be very aware of your neck and back. If you had longer hair, your neck and back were covered and protected. Make sure that you are using sunscreen and cleaning this area regularly as it will be open to more elements throughout the day.
Best Products for Bob Haircuts
One of the best aspects of a bob, or lob, is that styling is a breeze. Of course, having the right products will help to maintain your look throughout the day. Running a small amount of styling cream through the ends of your hair while it is still wet will allow your hair to maintain its shape all day long.
If you are going for the messy bob hairstyle, you will love a great beach spray. Mist throughout your hair, making sure to pick up and get some of the underlayers, and then blow dry. While you are blow drying, scrunch up the ends of your hair to get some extra volume and style. As always, whether you have a long hairstyle or a bob, dry shampoo is a must have for those days you need some extra volume or don’t have the time to wash and style your hair.

How to Maintain Your Bob Hairstyle
With a bob haircut, you may have less hair, but you still need to take care of your hair. Shorter hair has a habit of becoming greasy much faster than longer hair. Also, once you decide on how you like to style your bob you will most likely have to use specific heat styling tools and styling products. Hence, you will most likely need to wash your hair more frequently than if your longer hairstyle.
Lastly, if you decide to get a short bob cut you can let your hair grow to a lob, or you will have to get a trim every 3-6 weeks to keep your hairstyle. Although the bob may have some more work in maintaining your specific bob style, the bob is a classic hairstyle with many different options for you to style and transform your look.
