Best Face Shape for a Bob Wig
By Stephan Serrano 2020-5-19

Short hair is tricky to pull off. This statement is true particularly if you don't know the type of haircut that suits the shape of your face. But when they are done correctly bobs can frame your face perfectly, drawing the eye to your best features, making you look fantastic.

So, before you decide the bob style that you want, let's take a look at the different face shapes and the type of bob cut that suits each type of face.

1. The Round Face

The round face is better served by a long bob or the lob. This is because a long bob can elongate a round face shape to draw the eye longer. Lobs are a great solution also because they can be styled in numerous different ways, allowing you to even wear an up-do if you choose to. To achieve volume with a long bob, we recommend curls or waves and a little spray to dampen the curls and bring more movement to the curls. You can also use a flat iron to achieve the “S” waves of a body wave texture for those moments when you want to feel elegant.

In terms of length, the perfect bob for a round face should lay just below the chin to elongate the chin. You can also go with a side-part to highlight other features on your face.

2. The Oval Face

The oval face is the opposite of a round face when it comes to the perfect bob style. If you have an oval face, try to shorter length bob, like just below the chin. One of the best ways to add more elegance to this shorter length is to use a flat iron to curve the mids and ends outwards.

Women with an oval shape can also pull off the blunt-straight chin length bob as long as it remains just above the chin. You can also choose to add bangs to the straight bob to add more character, although not everyone can pull off bangs.

3. The Square Face

If you have a square face, the best bob for you is a layered bob. While square faces can pull off any length, you may want to uses a side part to draw attention to your cheekbones. If you don't want to draw attention to your jawline, you can soften it by adding texture to the bob by adding curls or waves. In this case (where you want to soften the jawline), part your hair in the middle and use a curling iron to achieve the curls. Once the hair is cool, run a wide-tooth comb or your fingers through your hair to loosen the curls.

4. The Heart-shaped Face

If you have a heart-shaped face, your perfect bob is a lob with bangs. This style also doesn't require too much work since a structured look is all you need. A fringe or bangs may also be a great addition, especially when you want to soften or balance your face and draw the eye downwards. If your goal is balance, you may want to have something across the face and extra volume and texture. This doesn't however mean that a heart-shaped face can't pull off a straight lob; just have a fringe or bangs over it.

Determining the shape of your face is one thing, but you have to come up with the perfect styling to match both your preferences and the shape of your face.
