The Rolled Bob Is the Easiest Hack for Serious Volume

The Rolled Bob Is the Easiest Hack for Serious Volume

If you want to mix up your hair look without losing inches, there’s one direction the pros will always point you in: styling. This is true of the rolled bob that’s heavy on ’90s attitude but requires zero trimming. Which means you can conveniently create it from the comfort of your own home.  

It’s a collision of all the styles we’ve been loving lately: the supermodel blow-dry, ’70s Farrah Fawcett flicks, the full-bodied Rachel, and of course, the classic blunt bob. And even better, it blends some seriously mega volume with a sleek, glam, bombshell finish that we can properly get behind. 

The trick? As always, a lot of it comes down to finding the right tools for the job. In this case, it means busting out your hot brush, since using one will take the heavy lifting out of the style and do a ton of the hard work for you. Don’t have one? No worries—a hair dryer and a round brush can create the same effect.

“The rolled bob is a classic ’90s look with a twist,” explains pro hair stylist James Earnshaw, who created the look that caught our attention over on Instagram and sold us on the style. “It’s great for fine hair to make it look a lot thicker,” he says, thanks to the oomph that a good blow-dry can add. 

As for the base, “it’s a simple, blunt one-length cut, but it’s rolled under the jawline to give a soft curve that gives it a slightly sexier feel,” James explains. “The best tool to recreate this is a hot brush. I’d recommend the GHD Rise. It adds curve, but in a soft, blow-dried way.”

The best bit? The beauty of trying out a fresh styling technique is that there’s no commitment. Instead, it can change the whole mood of your look until you wash it out and go again. This is one we’d happily wear on repeat, though.
