Right now, there's nothing trendier than a bob haircut. You only need to take one look at the fashion runways in London and Paris or any red carpet event β€” where nearly every celebrity is rocking one β€” to understand that the hairstyle is having a moment. But unlike celebrities, you may not have the time or the funds to purchase hair extensions should you decide you no longer want a short cut. Changing up your hair is always nerve-racking, whether that's with a cut or a new color, but it doesn't have to be if you do your homework beforehand and know what you're getting yourself into. And that's especially true for bob hairstyles, where the final results (and daily styling maintenance) varies greatly depending on hair texture and type.
