The New York Fashion week has come and gone, but it’s left us with a look that’s promising to be the hairstyle of the year.
It’s called the A-line bob, and was debuted by Kendal Jenner during the fashion celebration, and has been turning heads ever since, with other celebrities adopting the look as well. Some have even gone so far as to call it the quintessential cut of 2017, because of its versatility and easy maintenance.
And it looks gorgeous, of course.
So what is the A-line bob? Simply put, it’s asymmetrical, undercut long bob or lob, and it puts the normal associations we have with a bob cut to shame. Because the A-line is longer at the front, it allows you to keep the longerhair styles you used to love, while looking as chic as ever.
If you want the cut, but are unsure just exactly how to request it, we’ve got your back darling. Be sure to get the four magic words in early. Asymmetrical, long bob, and undercut. It’s up to you as to where you want the length in the front to sit.
The A-line is lauded for its versatility, but those with longer faces should know that the long face of the style may call attention on just that, but this does not mean you shouldn’t get the cut if you want it. Ask your stylist how to approach the cut to have it suit your looks, remember that versatility is part of the style’s foundation, so think about getting a fringe with it.
The fashion gurus are also quick to note that you can’t go wrong with any style for the cut, but if you’re looking to bend or wave it, you have to pay attention to the shorter back layers, to make sure you get that incredibly luxurious yet relaxed look.
We think the A-line is one of the cuts to keep an eye out for this year with its versatility and sheer chic power. If you’re as excited as we are about it, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you’re ready to turn some heads.
