In fact, that’s one of the times a soft-wave bob works best. The unstructured shape complements outgrown strands, especially if you like a more laid-back, undone look. But equally the breezy styling can help loosen up ultra-neat cuts, like a freshly chopped blunt bob, and give it a much more relaxed vibe.
The caramel soft-wave bob
Influencer Estela Newbold paired soft-wave sections at the front of her hair with pretty caramel money-piece highlights.
Baby braid soft-wave bob
Digital creator Steph Hui teamed naturally wavy hair with cute baby braids framing her face.
Side-parted soft-wave bob
Laura Harrier’s hairstylist opted for side-parted soft-wave bob, flicking extra waves over the other side for volume and to emphasize the gently waved texture.
Shaggy soft-wave bob
Actor Ella Purnell rocked loose, scrunched, unstructured soft waves for a rebel take on the style.
French soft-wave bob
Model Marsella Rae’s soft-wave bob is a cheeky French bob length, hitting at the lip and making the most of her naturally wavy texture.
Semistraight soft-wave bob
Actor Zoey Deutch’s soft-wave bob is a little more structured. It looks like S waves have been styled in, then combed out to leave a much looser, softer wave.
Messy soft-wave bob
We love model Amrita-Karma’s slept-in texture. It’s the hair equivalent of no-makeup makeup—slightly styled but still very natural-looking.
Tucked soft-wave bob
Model Kaia Gerber’s soft-wave bob looks beautifully undone—like it’s been tucked behind her ears and left to air-dry to encourage some natural movement.
Blunt soft-wave bob
Rose Byrne’s more structured soft-wave bob features one giant wave that’s been stretched out and loosened up. It’s a pretty way to emphasize her sliced blunt shape.
