The modern bob can best be described by its interplay with the shape of the face. A woman who gets a modern bob can expect her stylist to carefully study her chin, forehead, brows, nose and cheekbones, because the bob can be designed to call attention to a single one of these features, or to a more general facial area (forehead and brows, chin and cheekbones).
Regardless of the basic nature of your natural look, whether curly or straight, colored or not, parted, permed or plaited, there is an option for the bob that will work for you. In all these options, however, the bob will have the effect of framing of the face. This effect is created by the bob’s usual tresses or strands running down both sides of the face.
Even in short bobs, you will see this framing effect performed by a strand or two of hair positioned in harmonious balance near the sideburn area. In the inverted bob, a very modern look, the framing effect is severe and arresting.
