A bob haircut is not only cool but also a hairstyle requiring extremely high maintenance. You need to periodically crop it, trim it, refresh its color and style it so it won’t look like you went to bed with wet hair and woke up with it dried the very next morning.
Since this August comes with the perfect air to style your bob differently here are the best ways to style a bob.
If your haircut needs a bit of trim, choose a bit of color instead. Go for a bold nuance and artistic coloring. Choose ombre look or deep dyed and you will refresh the hairstyle without a new cut.
In case of a grown bob with longer front bags choose volume for the best styling solution. Use volumizing hair products and opt for a slick look using smooth and shine hairspray.
If you have a front part and a grown bob haircut choose to give the edges a bit of curled appearance. Simply go for a messier kind or curls easily obtained with a flat iron. Make sure you use a heat protectant hair product to avoid damaging the hair.
A long bob hairstyle can look extremely glamorous in case you choose a messy volume look. Wash the hair and choose volumizing products according to your hair structure. Blow the hair dry and tease the roots a bit. Spread the strands unevenly all over the surface of the hairstyle to obtain a structured look.
In case you have an almost shoulder length bob with short front bags choose a slick top and some pixie looking
bottom. Use a hair product that will give structure to the hair and use the flat iron to flip the edges.
In case you lack the time make sure you consider a side part styling for a grown bob haircut. Simply comb the hair on a side of the head and fix with hairpins and hairspray.

Summer homemade body scrub
Summer brings with it the need to exfoliate especially because the warm weather and perspiration make the skin look dull, greasy and shiny. Mix some brown sugar in olive oil if your skin is dry or in body wash if you have oily skin. Scrub your skin under a warm shower and rinse. Moisturize according to your skin type.

During warm weather pimples tend to appear in the most annoying places such as your shoulders and arms. If you need a quick fix for this matter consider eye drops for irritated eyes.

Bug bites are part of the summer issues that need quick fixes. If you wear a floral perfume most likely you will attract all kinds of bugs. Also if you plan to spend the cool evenings outdoors you can be sure that the bug bite problem will present itself. This is why it is important to have some alcohol mouthwash at hand. Damp a cotton ball in mouthwash and hold over the bite. Holding an ice cube also helps.
