Layered Bob Hairstyle

The layered bob hairstyle you see is my most recent short hair cut by Chris Jones (@chrisjones_hair on Instagram). In the past, I’ve stuck to more of a textured bob hairstyle which is more of a blunt cut. This time we switched things up and at first I wasn’t loving it completely, but now I’m in love with the layered bob! Whether you go with a simple blowout style or jazz things up with some curls, the layers in this short hairstyle look beautiful. To see more about this cut by Chris, scroll to below! 

I always recommend doing solid research on hairstylists who specialize in the hair cut you’re looking to get. For example, in my case, I would need to be checking reviews of short hair stylists who have executed the layered bob, textured bob, or other short haircuts I’m looking to possibly get. Check their social media pages, reviews from previous clients online, and be clear with what short hairstyle you’d like once you’ve contacted them! 

 

Styling a Layered Bob Haircut

Since I’ve gotten home and been able to play around and style my new layered bob hairstyle on my own, I’ve found these four products by L’ange have done the trick: Glaze hair lotion, Sorbet smoothing balm, Posh hair polish, and Salt & Sea texturizing spray. This covers my bases for heat protectant, frizz reduction, and volume! To see how I use these products on a layered hairstyle for best results, see the video below!

Keep in mind, blow drying vs. air drying can make a huge difference in how your hair feels and holds up after styling. Using little to no product can leave your hair falling flat faster, but having too much product weigh your hair down too. Blow drying helps to spread the product evenly throughout your hair and will help give you volume, especially if you have or are going for a layered bob, or any short hairstyle for that matter.

Make sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook if you’d like more hair tutorials – I’ve also got plenty on my YouTube channel! I hope this is most helpful for you in seeing and understanding this layered bob haircut/short hair style a little better and I hope you rock it out!

Healthy Hair Guide

Dry brittle hair, split ends, you name it, it’s annoying! Are you doing all the things and nothing seems to be working with improving the overall health of your hair!? You do the hair treatments and your hair still breaks…or maybe you added in a serum and your hair is still brittle? Girl, I got you! Sometimes we do too little to achieve healthy hair and other times we accidentally do too much.  I definitely want you to check out the article I came across on how protein buildup in our hair effects our overall hair health. It was an eyeopener for me and I hope it helps you too! 

One thing about hair and skin is there are always ways we can improve things that we may not know or think about. In this blog post, I wanted to hone in on key things that can truly make an impact. On top of that, I wanted to include things you can use to actually help your hair. These are great tips & products to have on hand from super soft hair elastics to hats that can block out the wind and even UV rays. How’s your hair these days? Could it use a little bit of extra protection?  You aren’t alone! 

Click here to read this article I found. It’s super insightful regarding something you might have thought about,  & that is how to tell if your hair has too much protein in it (it can happen and it can dry your hair out!). 

L'ange Protective Hair Care Products

L’ange has a lot of great products that not only help with styling, but they also help to keep your hair healthy. It’s important to use the right products for your hair type so be sure to read the descriptions of each product on their website. L’ange has done a great job of giving key information regarding each product so you know what to expect. Here are several products that I’ve tried or have done research on and how they can help your hair needs! 

Remedé Shine Enhancing Argon Oil – Not only does this goodness reduce frizz and lock in moisture, it has UV filters to protect your hair. It’s a little bit of a thicker oil but can be used on the ends sparingly to add moisture to promote healthy hair.

Detox Scalp Reset Serum – This leave in formula restores the balance and brings comfort to your scalp. Use as directed on wet/damp hair before air drying or blow drying & styling.

Smoothe Healing Oil Treatment– a healing oil that will nourish and reduce breakage. This stuff smells like minty goodness and is so good for those with dandruff, itchy, or dry scalp.

Treatment A Duex Hair and Scalp Masque– this new L’ange product will nourish and condition both your hair and scalp.  Packed full of natural ingredients that will replenish moisture and shine to promote healthy hair.
