What better to do during a New England blizzardy evening than to blog?
One of you wrote me eons ago asking for advice on how to style a bob so that it wouldn’t fall in your eyes during preaching.
Good question. After all, the bob is pretty much designed to fall sexily in one’s eye, is it not?
So the first thing to do is make sure you tell your hair stylist to cut a short enough bang to skim your eyes rather than droop into them:
She just needs a little spray.
Mrs. Tom Cruise has it down perfectly.
The other thing you can do is make headbands your friend, but nothing too cutesy:
This is a dramatic, glam look but that’s because most of the photos I found of women with bob cuts and headbands looked way too girlish.
Alternately, you can go with a simply pin to keep the hair back:
The make-up is sophisticated enough that she doesn’t look like a schoolgirl. Notice the slightly winged-out eyeliner. However, I would not recommend placing the bobby pin that high up.
Here is a photo of me with a long, layered bob wearing a tiny hair pin to keep the bangs out of my eyes:
I wasn’t preaching that morning but I would often do that with my hair: put a tiny pin in it and pull some of the other hair over it.
Another look that should work for Sunday morning is to pull back the bangs and secure them with a clip or barrette. Another thing I like to do is twist two chunks of hair near the crown and pull them back. Someone said this look was too “theatre-artsy” but I’m not sure what that means.
Anyway, play with your own locks! Just make sure that you keep them bangs out of your face!
