The hair has been shaved on the sides and thus has been styled like a pixie with undercut. The length of the bob is very short and is above the nape, which is unlikely in most other bobs. The strands that are remaining have been cut asymmetrically, thus helping to create proper volume and dimension.
Blonde Pixie Undercut Bob
This is yet another testament which proves that the pixie undercut bob trends are ruling the beauty industry and that this trend is here to stay.

The hair has not been painted with any additional colors or highlights and has been maintained in a rich hue of blonde itself. The forehead is covered with bangs from the center of the head, which makes it look very cool.
Long Wavy Hair with Curls
Doesn’t this hairstyle look absolutely and unbelievably beautiful? Well, anyone with long hair can easily achieve this style too. Ask your stylist to style your hair with quite a few curls and leave all your hair on only one side to highlight the loose waves and curls. A little bit of the hair has been lifted in the back which makes it look voluminous, and a little portion of the hair at the front has been swept to the sides. A few strands are also left hanging on both sides. This look is ideal for marriage functions, events, parties, etc.
Middle Parted Straight Hair
The simplicity and minimalism of this look are sure to make everyone go in awe. This bride looks stunning as she has managed to keep her entire look very low-key yet gorgeous.

Gone are the days when brides used to overdress or over-accessorize for their weddings. The latest trends are all about being stylish while keeping it all at a minimum.
Short Layered Bob
Beauty only becomes more graceful and elegant with age, and, indeed, beauty does not fade.

The hair also looks wonderful in the blonde color.
Layered Bob with Fringes
This is yet another type of Asian hair. The hair has been styled in such a way that the bob is short behind as it has been cropped a little below the years, but as it comes to the front, the length of the layers increase. The side-swept long fringes help to frame the face just according to the features. The thing about layers and fine hair is that the more layers you add to your hair, the more gorgeous your entire look becomes.
