Why go for the bob?

Short Hair

Cutting one’s hair short has always been perceived as a bold move among ladies. It has always been associated with “freedom” and getting a haircut has been informally regarded as a way of symbolically letting go of heartaches and other distressing life experiences. Many have attested that it can be liberating and can boost a women’s confidence.

Aesthetically, short hair can emphasize delicate and commonly unnoticed features of the face, as well as the neck and the collarbone. It can make women look years younger than their actual age.

Short hair also proves to be economical. It can save women on expensive hair products. It is also time-efficient as fewer tangles mean less time preparing. Bobs and other short styles also dry much quicker and are perfect for those looking for a wash-and-wear style.
