Long Bob @ Avant Garde


I longed for a makeover as I have been spotting long hair for the past 14 years. Having a round face, I have to be careful with shorter hairstyles. I conveyed my concerns to Georgina and she suggested a long bob. This cut is anything but boring! A wearable take on the classic short bob haircut, it looks amazing on everyone, plus it can be styled in many different ways. How fun!

After a hair wash with a superb scalp massage, Georgina proceed to lopp off multiple inches of hair. She worked with the natural fall of my hair, ensuring the shortest layer hits my earlobe or lower. Layers shouldn’t be too short; longer layers flatter a round face because of the length.


Now here’s the outcome 🙂  A chic long bob which looks young, fresh yet still sophisticated!


The hair “curtains” the side of the face. This works well to hide the roundness of cheeks and elongates a round face.

After 6 hours, my hair still looks great!


The back is a tad shorter than the front. You can choose to shorten hair at the back for a modern, edgy feel.



A long bob is low maintenance and fuss-free. Usually, I put my styling tools to rest and let my hair air dry, as its better for the hair’s health.

On those days when I want more volume, my Vidal Sassoon Big Hair Styler is put to good use. I blew dry my hair the night before, moving the front tips outwards for a casual look. Here’s the result…



This hairstyle will grow out beautifully and I look forward to experimenting with other styling tools to create more looks.  A wavy long bob will look unique, don’t you think? XD

I understand that some girls are apprehensive with shorter hairdos, because you may not feel confident in blow drying hair to achieve a stylish look. With VS Sassoon Big Hair Styler 1000W, you can achieve perfect blowouts within 10 minutes. So if you are game for a makeover, try a shorter hairdo!


I am so pleased with my new cut from Avant Garde  and have been receiving numerous compliments from colleagues *beams*
