Messy texture.

On some days easy does it, and when that happens a messy textured bob is the style to sport, all the more if effortless translates to such a cool look:

Braided detail.

If you aim for something decidedly more feminine, keep the messy texture and add a braided detail into your hair to instantly soften up the look:

Sleek & with a center part.

Of course, a sleek, straight bob will never grow older, not when paired to a classic center part and a pair of timeless red lips:

Deep side part & volume.

In order to put a modern spin on your long bob, infuse the straight locks with a little bit of volume and finish off the look with a messy side-part:

Blunt bangs.

A pair of blunt bangs holds the power to change everything, even the way a long bob comes to sight when styled in loose, textured waves:

Edgy half top-knot.

A bit grunge, a lot edgy, the half top-knot asks for a little bit of texture in the hair; the rest comes as easy as pie with results that are clearly on the remarkable side:

Wet-look texture.

All throughout the winter and into spring 2015, the wet-look finish maintains its relevance, making for one easy, but highly-dramatic way of styling the long bob:

Top it with a hat.

When everything else fails, top your long bob with a wide-brimmed hat. All the better if the bob is super-textured and messy-looking:
