Fancy a fresh, new look this year?
Seems that 2019 is the year of the short bob. This hairstyle, as seen on Song Hye Kyo in the hit-drama ‘Encounter’, has been gaining popularity in Asia after the drama premiered.
This short bob is characterized by its length of 5-7 centimetres under the ear, flaunted with airy bangs, side fringes or in curly waves. While Song Hye Kyo wears hers in her natural hair colour, this style still works should you want to dye your hair different colours too!
If you want to emulate her exact hairstyle here, go for airy bangs that complement the bob—it is also suitable for our humid Singaporean weather and prevents the bangs from getting too greasy after an entire day in the office or outside. Take the chance to show off this hairstyle with a pair of minimalistic metal earrings if you’re going for a clean, chic look, or a pair of statement earrings if you’re heading for a night out.
After filming wrapped on ‘Encounter’, Song Hye Kyo grew out her airy bangs for a classy mid part, adding in some C-shaped curls to add on extra volume. The curls help to make the overall impression of the hairstyle lighter and exude mature feminity—befitting of the actress herself. It’s also good to note that the shape of the bob haircut is not flush against the shape of the head, and helps to lift the face.
For a more artsy look, take the plunge and go for a spiral perm along with your new bob hairstyle. It helps to frame the face well, especially if you’re worried about your new hairstyle making your face look big. This bohemian-inspired vibe also exudes effortless feminity and will look good no matter what outfit you wear.
Further proving that this hairstyle can hold up to almost any colour, it can also be worn straight—simply run your hair quickly through with a straightening iron, pulling slightly at the roots to give the hair more body to withstand the humidity outside. The best part about this hairstyle too? It flatters your face, without the need for thick makeup! Basic simplicity is the key!
What do you think? Ready to roll into 2019 with this short bob hairstyle?—We sure are!
