The Soft Wave Bob Is 2022’s Chicest Short Hair Trend

The bob is back, in every possible way. From boyfriend crops to layered lobs, shorter than shoulder-length hair is having its moment in the sun. The latest take on this phenomenon is the soft wave bob. With effortless bends and natural, lived-in texture, the soft wave bob is uniquely versatile. Ideal for an everyday outing, this short style can easily be dressed up for an evening event. Check out six ways to wear it below!

1. Glam Soft Wave

2. Textured French Bob

Just a little bit of lived-in texture makes this short cut more than magical. A natural-looking bend gives this soft wave bob the right amount of movement.

A little bit of wave can go a long way. A simple pinned-back style looks even more effortless on a soft wave bob.

4. Side-Parted Soft Wave Bob

Nothing could be more subtle than this swept-over soft wave moment. It’s the epitome of cool.
