eww, my angled bob is grown out and looks ugly! lol. it just looks like 3 chunks- 2 on the sides and then the back. i think im gonna just even it all out and maybe throw some layers in the mix.

your hair looks great!! if i could cut mine like that, i'd never pay for a haircut! of course, it does help that you start with great hair, but even still, it looks like a very professional great cut.

I'm a 3a/3b and I've always wanted to get an inverted bob (longer in the front, shorter in the back)!!! I'm thinking about parting it on the left and leaving the hair longer (past chin) on the right so it would be longer on the right,shorter on the left. The problem with this is I think it might make my face look too long. I have a long forehead, so I thought maybe I could just get bangs but I hate the idea of having to straighten it out everyday!
It's been my dream hair cut for years now!!!Well all except the bangs. That's just something I recently came up with to resolve the problem of my face looking too long.
Is it a hideously horrible idea or does it have possibilities? Any suggestions?

I recently got 11-12 inches cut off my hair...it hasn't been this short (or this curly!) in 9 years! I used to wear my hair shorter, but I think time and kids have given me more natural curl than I ever thought possible

This is probably a silly question, but is this a bob? right now, I'm not really liking it, and I wonder if I need to get the underneath layer shorter? right now it just kind of sticks straight down from the shorter layers, if that makes sense...

I think you need more layers and a definite part. A bob usually looks "sharp" at the bottom.

Your bobs look great ladies! I'd get one, but my hair grows out to fast (2-3inches a month) so I'm just growing it to my waist XD

Aiming to grow hair to waist from buzz cut - slowly but surely.
My hairdresser's name is Carlos also. Would he be the same as yours? Carlos Febre? I think I need more layering as Kathy suggested. I love all the pictures of your inverted bobs. Hoping that Carlos will be able to do the same for me.
Hi
I recently tried the plopping and my hair looked like Bozo the Clown. It is definitely not for bobs like mine. I did try an old bottle of Suave conditioner- Chamomille. and left a little in after my shower. The curls were more defined and chunky. Any serum will give me the frizzies. Please let me know what gel would be good for a 3b like me. Thanks.
Barbara
I am new and think i am a 3b. My bob is getting very flat on the top and poofs out on the sides. Here is my picture. Think I need to get more layering on top. Do you?

Someone named curlpro gave a link to how they are taught to cut hair in school. It's exactly what my stylist does to my hair. I always wet and style before I go in, so he can see how my hair is behaving and shape/cut accordingly.

The pictures of bobs that have been posted by all you curly girls are gorgeous! I have worn my hair this way for about 20 years and have tried other styles on and off-growing it long, then cutting it short but the bob seems to be the only style that my hair likes. It is easy to keep, has movement and dries quickly. I am 62 years old and have let my hair grow in gray. The back is still dark silver but I have white hilights framing my face. My hair still loves the bob so I guess it will be my forever style. Had no luck with the inverted bob but the sides are slightly longer than the back. Kathymack has been great with product suggestions. Anyone else have 3b hair and willing to share their experiences with product?
getting a bob today......very nervous!!! Need products :/study: sorry i wuv smilies

IM SO NERVOUS!!! Im getting a side-swepped fringe (or bangs to you american bobbies) THIS IS THE BEST THREAD IN THE WORLD!
