A trendy hairstyle with Parisian chic - this year we love the petit bob in a summer-ready look. All info.
Bob hairstyles are still one of our favorite haircuts in the beauty cosmos. Why? They are diverse, changeable, and give us a fresh look. The Petit Bob is now the smallest member of the family. Find out here how the mini version of the classic wraps itself around our fingers with French charm.
The name already indicates the hair length of the bob trend: "Petit" comes from French and means "small", the hairstyle is cut short. So if you have long hair, you can part with the mini version of the classic hairstyle by a few centimeters this summer. The tips should reach no further than the chin and, for a fresh look, should not be straight but cut blunt and fringed. The length remains the same at the front and back, the typical oblique bob course does not exist in the petit version.
It doesn't matter whether you have straight hair or curls, you can wear a petit bob with any hair structure. The cut gives fine hair more volume. Thick hair has more structure and lightness.
However, what you should pay attention to find out whether the trend suits you is your face shape. Since the hairstyle ends at the chin, the bob variant is particularly suitable for women with narrow, oval, heart-shaped, or oblong faces. The short hair fills the face optically gently and brings out the cheekbones in particular.
With a square face, on the other hand, the look quickly becomes severe. If you have a round face, you should be aware that the haircut also emphasizes the round shape.
When it comes to styling, everything is allowed with the petit bob. Of course, you can leave your hair in the undone look, because blow-dried loosely over your head, the blunt-cut tips will make it fall beautifully on its own. Gentle waves in the hairstyle create a summery, romantic look. In the Sleek Look, on the other hand, the haircut looks glamorous and emphasizes your facial contours particularly well. Frayed bangs or trendy half-moon bangs also go great with the trendy hairstyle and give the bob an additional touch of French chic.
