- A fine-toothed comb — There's a reason that going over stuff with one of these is synonymous with thoroughness. The tiny teeth line up even small hairs and put everything in the right place, making it the perfect tool for getting your bangs to create the perfect blunt "curtain" shape and smoothing down ends that may have gone akimbo.
- A hot brush — The perfect flip-under is one of the bob's defining elements, but wetting and blow-drying your hair with a round brush every time you want it to look fresh is a pain. That's when this little beauty comes in. It's just a heated round brush, so twirl your ends under the way you normally would while drying, and you've got a perfectly round under-curl in a couple of minutes.
- A root volumizer — One of the biggest problems with bob cuts is the dreaded triangle head; tons of volume at the bottom, but none at the top. That's why having something to fluff up your roots is a necessity, especially for refreshing your hair after work and between washes. A good powder-based dry shampoo is one way to handle this, but you can also go with volumizing hair spray.
