Rihanna, the Kardashians, Dua Lipa, everyone seems to love this bob hairstyle. It's simple, doesn't end up in sore arms, and leaves you looking oh-so-classy.

  1. Step 1: Start by applying Livon Super Styler Serum and begin sectioning your hair. You want to divide it in three layers (bottom, middle, top), so that each section gets styled properly.
  2. Step 2: Begin by straightening each section-slowly move the hair straighteners between your sections, and then immediately run a fine-toothed comb through it. Ensure that you straighten the ends of your hair inwards-they need to curve towards your face.
  3. Step 3: Repeat the process for each section.
  4. Step 4: Centre-part your hair and comb through it thoroughly.
  5. Step 5: You can either let the side of your hair fall onto your face to frame it, or you can tuck one side behind your ears to neaten the look a little.

#2 - Out-Of-The-Beach Waves

Beachy waves make everything look good, including a bob! This perfect side-swept hairstyle makes for a great go-to, whether it's a casual brunch or a fancy evening out.

  1. Step 1: Apply Livon Damage Protect Serum on to your hair. Divide it into two sections - bottom and top.
  2. Step 2: Start creating beach waves on your hair - you want the waves to face outwards. Make sure to not tighten the curls. Avoid wrapping your hair tightly around the curling tong.
  3. Step 3: Repeat this for all sections of your hair.
  4. Step 4: Run your fingers through your hair and open up the waves for that messy effect.
  5. Step 5: If you've got bangs or a side-swept fringe, simply use a round brush and a blow dryer to style the front sections of your hair. Brush your fringe outwards to create that side-swept effect. Ruffle away!

Everyone loves a top knot, and whoever said you cannot style a bob with one, should stand corrected. This Lucy Hale inspired top knot is definitely one you can reach out to on the days you're strapped for time!

  1. Step 1: Detangle your hair by brushing it out.
  2. Step 2: Section the top layer around the crown of your hair and pull it into a half ponytail.
  3. Step 3: Take that half-ponytail and twist it into a bun-secure with a hair-tie and let the ends of the ponytail sit on one side, on the top of your head.
  4. Step 4: Gently brush the bottom section to neaten it a little, and then ruffle it with your fingers.
  5. Step 5: Add two to three hair clips on the side of the bun, where the ends of the bun stick out.

Meet Hollywood's favourite curls, but this time it's got a bit of a short makeover. This bob hairstyle makes it to one of the classics and is the perfect go-to for thinner hair. Adding volume, style, and elegance to any look, recreating this one is a breeze.

  1. Step 1: Brush your hair out and section it into as many parts as possible. The idea is to create tight curls, the thinner the section the tighter your curl will get.
  2. Step 2: Take a large barrel curling tong and wrap each section, away from your face.
  3. Step 3: Once you are done, make sure to run your fingers through your hair to open up the curls. Scrunch in some curl-cream so that the hair holds.
  4. Step 4: Finish off by centre-parting your hair-pull back the front a little, so that the curl doesn't fall on the face.
