The bob has quickly become one of fashions most basic but flexible styles, being simple enough to work across a variety of looks. This season it ranges from chin-length to shoulder-length, keeping its effortless feel updated in all shapes and sizes. Cropped hair has never been more refreshing with its low maintenance but ultra sexy appeal. The sleek and sharp bob appears uncomplicated but it has the power to transform your look in the most unexpected ways.
Plunging from mid length hair to a shaggy bob seems like a formidable proposal, but dipped in simplicity the bob maintains relevant for 2014. Wear yours natural and unworked or quirky and straight whilst taking cues from the S/S 14 shows.
“The bob is SUPER EASY, just wash, scrunch and GO!” – Fay Gilling, Daniel Hersheson.
Mixed textures can update even the easiest off-duty hairstyle so give your bob a generous blast with Hershesons Professional Hair Dryer for a new look, seizing this season’s modern elements of natural grunge.
Update a shorter style with haphazard beachy waves that contain plenty of slept in movement. We suggest adding a small amount of L’oreal Volume Riche Moose to hair before drying to diffuse the ends. On a lazy day, rough dry your hair with Hershesons Professional Dryer and TONG random sections with Hershesons Ionic Waving Wand to create loose and casual waves. Fay says, “a quick blast of a dryer keeps my hair looking shaggy but add L’oreal’s Wild Paste throughout the day to really amp up the volume.” The WASH and GO aesthetic turns the bob decidedly more dramatic that complements a good girl gone bad attitude. WILD and MESSY with a bed head texture renews the classic bob with an infinitely edgier finish.
But if you’re looking for a more elegant semblance, simply tuck one side behind the ear. A sleek side-parted bob is creative, distinctive and effortless, the perfect antidote for ordinary hair. The SIDE PARTING is perhaps the most accessible styling option transitioning into 2014 that allows you to elevate your bob without making any drastic changes. The side parting can be worn with either a STRAIGHT and refined finish or go wild with dramatic texture for a contemporary feel.

When it comes to your hair you should be thinking beyond backstage and the runway. Hair type, length, face shape and personal preference are all factors that influence the success of a hairstyle – but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t glance at the S/S ‘14 shows for hairspiration. Just don’t take each look so literally! To help, we’re searching for a handful of homegrown styles that feel fresh, on-point and that won’t take you all day to achieve.
As noted by Sarah-Louise Okin, stylist at Daniel Hersheson: “The not so new craze of loose, undone hair just keeps getting bigger and bigger because we find it so easy and effective!"
"The modern woman doesn’t want to spend an hour getting a blow dry; she’s on the move and wants to look effortless..."
The wave has recaptured our imagination and provoked a new attitude that fits the escalating theme of casual, undone hair. It’s an effortless style that gets you from day to day because a bit of tousled texture goes a long way. Whether your hair is chin-length, waist-length or somewhere in between, there is never a style more simple or effective. Get the look at home with 'Hershesons Batiste Dry Shampoo', and 'Hershesons Waving Wand'.
We’re taking tips from Scott Ade at Daniel Hersheson who says:
“Casual, undone hair has been on the rise for some time now so if you're blessed with a little texture you can easily keep your 'undone look' bang on trend. For added movement try playing with a few random braids and plaits as seen on catwalks everywhere this season such as McQueen, Chanel, Marchesa, Dolce & Gabbana, and Pucci. If the texture doesn't come naturally to you, don't panic… our Hero Hair Tool is the 'Hersheson Waving Wand'. Work through the hair in random sections creating cool waves and texture for a five minute fix!”
The key to great hair this spring is to keep it natural and not try too hard. Get a great cut with a strong shape and sense of identity, then leave it to fall how it wants by keeping it cool and natural. Your haircut should be a mainstay, one that never falls out of fashion.
Scott suggests: “taking the plunge & wearing your hair in a short 'undone' Bob. Think Sam Rollinson's edgy crop."
"There's been plenty of fuss and excitement backstage this spring over Sam's cool, effortless & youthful cut!"
However, if you're looking to make a change to your style with out doing something too dramatic, why not try a fringe like 'Hershesons Clip in Winge' or even something as simple as changing your parting, it might not sound like much but it can have a real impact.
More and more hairstyles are evolving with deep side parts leaving imprint on the imagination. Larry King, stylist at Daniel Hersheson throws reference to Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift when creating a deep side parting.
“People are creating an un-kept but elegant look through their parting by simply flipping the hair off the face.
"Use your fringe to create lift and texture through the front and add some Dry Shampoo to create an unpolished, casual finish.”
We’re combining the structure of the parting with soft and dreamy styles such as braids for effortless romance. Various interpretations of the side part were spotted on the runway from messy, folkish, to regal but we’re pairing it with knots and braids in an undone matte finish. If you’re not a perfectionist, no fear! We love that there are no rules involved in maxing out the plait so it can never be too tight, too loose or too undone… handy for those of us who aren’t perfectionists!
