It is important to note however that the bob wig comes in different styles depending on your needs. They can also come in different types of hair including Brazilian, Malaysian, Indian and Peruvian.

1. Short Bob Wigs

They also soften facial features and can look youthful and playful when bangs are added to it. If you want the fuller effect, we recommend adding highlights that rare several shades are lighter than the base color of the wig.
2. Long Bob Wigs
The longer bob is the right choice if you are uncomfortable with hair that is too short. It is long enough to allow you to wear it in a ponytail. It is also ideal for natural soft waves.

This one combines strands of different length and volume to shape a nice profile of your head in the back and elongate the face. It can also be worn straight or with waves.
Like most other human hair wigs, there are a lot of options for styling your bob wig. Some of the most popular styles include the following;

Like most wigs, installing a bob wig is simple and straightforward. The following steps will guide you through the process;
Step 1: Put the wig on your head and ensure that it is well-positioned.
Step 2: Start with the bag and adjust the wig to your desired style, moving it forward towards the hairline.
Step 3: Once you are certain that is placed as correctly as you need it to be, secure it with the combs that come with the wig. Keep in mind that you may need to sew in a drawstring depending on the size of your head. If the wig doesn’t come with a drawstring, add more cobs to the perimeter to help you hold the wig in place and prevent it from lifting.
Please note that you need to place the part exactly where you need it to be before securing the wig. You can choose your preferred parting whether you are using a lace front wig or a full lace wig.
It is also important to note that you have several other options when it comes to securing the wig on your head. You can use wig caps, wig grip bands, metal wig clips, bobby pins, double-sided tape or even glue.
Most women are afraid of the bob cut because choosing the right cut can be very involving. For example, the right cut for a person with an oval face may not be suitable for someone with a round face. But with a bob wig, you can experiment with many different cuts to find the perfect style for you. Just ensure that you wash and condition the wig to protect it from damage and ensure it lasts a long time.
