This trend can be achieved on hair lengths, but looks particularly gorgeous when paired with a bob cut with bangs haircut. There are endless ways to style your hair with a colour block trend, some prefer colouring their bangs in a bright colour, while leaving the rest a simple brown or black. You can also go for this pretty looking pink colour peeping through the hair at front. An easy and pretty way to get on board with this trend.

Last but not the least, a bob cut with bangs for those who have curly hair. If you often complain that most hairstyles don’t look great on your curly hair, we are about to change that. Did you know short curly bob with bangs is one of the best face framing hairstyles? If you have loose curls, it will work well with bangs. Hair length is very important here, make sure you don’t go too short with your bob cut or your hair will get frizzy and difficult to manage. Keep the length below your ears so it has some weight and body to behave the way you want it to.
