Get A Bob Like Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham a.k.a. Posh Spice has proven to be a real trendsetter. She now even has a hair-do named after her which is popping up everywhere. Meet the "Pob" (Posh Spice + Bob= Pob). The bob has been around for years, but I don't recall it being as hot as it is right now.
She truly added her twist to it and reinvented this timeless style. This striking asymmetrical short cut is a combination of sleek and ophisticated, yet and funky/messy.

Find a skilled stylist who is comfortable with texturizing via straight razor first. Discuss with your hairdresser what aspects of the cut will suit you, and where things should be adapted to be most flattering to your face shape and styling skills.

These asymmetrical bobs, have been spotted on stars such as Rihanna and now even Katie Holmes. The fabulousness of hairstyle is that it can be uniquely tailored to suit each woman’s facial features and hair type- Fine hair gets quite a lift this way and heavy, thick locks get a weight lifted out..
In fact, Posh Spice, herself, has changed up the look of her Pob various times since she first donned it. The first version look more like the classic bob with a twist on the angle (short in back, long in front). Now, the back of her head is more of a shag with shorter texturized layers. With a few minor adjustments anyone can look as trendy and stylish as Mrs. Beckham.

This cut is meant to move hair forward, framing the face to the point of almost obscuring features with the sultry way the hair falls in the eyes.

Tips for styling the Pob:
***Use a texturizing shampoo and conditioner in the shower.

***Towel dry your hair and work in a small amount of anti-frizz balm and a dollop of volumizing mousse through your hair.

***Using your hair dryer and a round brush, smooth hair towards your face, boosting more movement in your hair.

***To style a cowlick, try blasting the heat on the unruly piece of hair first in one direction, then in the next direction, and after repeating a few times, the hair should sit the way you want.

***Once dry, use a bit of pomade or wax to spike up the shorter pieces and seperate longer strands. Use a small amount and rub between your hands to get the product soft, warm and pliable.

***When your hair is styled, finish off with a touch of glossy shine serum and a spritz of finishing spray. Throughout the day you can touch and fluff up your hair.

***Shorter styles usually require a bit more maintenance than longer ones. You'll need to get regular trims every 4-6 weeks, and keep that color fresh as there is nowhere for roots to hide.

***You won't need to wash your hair everyday as choppier styles usually hold up well with slightly dirty hair.
