An elegant bob is an image that symbolizes feminine beauty and charm, and an elongated bob without bangs creates a strict aesthetics of the classics. It is exquisite, straight, sleek hair that falls to the shoulders on the one hand is simple, on the other hand it is incredibly graceful and light. A hairstyle like this, like a little black dress, is characterized by noble simplicity, calmness, severity and at the same time smooth lines.
Cutting a bob in modern hairdressing is considered a traditional phenomenon, reflecting the culture of mankind. The second “advent” of haircuts occurred at the beginning of the 20th century during the heyday of Art Deco, as an oriental element taken from the murals of the Egyptian pyramids. For the third time, Vidal Sassoon returned the square to the pedestal of the most feminine hairstyles in the mid-60s of the last century, and for more than half a century, the square is the classic basis of the foundations of most existing hairstyles.
Elongated bob without bangs: types
Consider from all sides one of the options for a square – an elongated one without a bang. Probably, this particular version of the “square” hairstyle can be positioned as the most elegant, with an abyss of style and pretentiousness. The haircut itself is difficult not only from the point of view of technique, demanding on the ideal correctness of the lines, combined with the type of face, an elongated bob without bangs is an independent element of the image and its classics must be taken into account when choosing.
A classic square without bangs with a straight cut is suitable for elongated or round types of faces, it also looks good on those with a high forehead and a small chin. The hairstyle allows you to play with a straight or side parting and is most often designed in shoulder-length hair. In other words, the classics in the absolute, precise, demanding to make-up and style of clothing, due to their “fullness”, content, is both alien to asymmetry and spontaneous.
An elongated graduated square without bangs is a hairstyle capable of regulating the thickness and volume of hair using a rigorous mathematical calculation. The very technique of graduation, based on cutting the hair at a certain angle, allows you to visually increase the number of strands, while giving the hair an oval shape. The cascading effect of the upper part of the hairstyle romanticizes the image, emphasizing the feminine lightness and mobility of the wearer.
A graduated square is not recommended for curly or wavy hair, the “square” itself “prefers” the straightness of transverse lines and perpendiculars. But among all types of squares, all types of asymmetry are permissible exactly graded, up to a radical shearing of one of the sides with a sharp transition angle to the other, and also, probably, this is the only haircut option that is quite simple in further care and styling thanks to the cascade technique.
Consider the technique of laying an asymmetric graduated square, which will require the following styling products and tools:
- mousse or gel with styling effect and temperature protection;
- a hair dryer with a crevice nozzle;
- brushing with a diameter of 5 cm;
- fixing varnish.
Graduated asymmetrical bob is characterized by a short-cropped temporal region on one side of the hairstyle and a long flowing wave of hair to the shoulders and below on the other. Such a geometry of hairstyles requires the most even and smooth hair, therefore, when styling, it is necessary to additionally use, in addition to leveling agents, high-temperature styling with irons.
- On cleanly washed hair, apply a protective styling mousse or volumizing gel and dry hair with a hair dryer with a crevice nozzle, lifting it up at the roots.
- The strands are dried on one side and along the length using a hair dryer and methodical brushing with a large diameter brushing, this technique allows you to smooth and almost perfectly stretch the hair.
- The second option, creating perfectly smooth strands, can be obtained using irons. Each strand is smoothed with an iron from the roots while curling the ends towards the inside of the hairstyle.
- The resulting version, if necessary, is fixed with varnish, but in no case do not weigh down the hairstyle if you have already used the styling gel.

Antithesis to the classics: an elongated bob on a leg without bangs
Another spectacular version of a graduated square is an elongated square on a leg without a bang. This hairstyle, using the reverse feed of the haircut – accentuates the short back of the head with long temporal locks “piled up” forward, let’s say, an exquisite antithesis to the classic version of the square.
At the same time, a square on a leg creates one of the most original and light feminine images, suitable for all beauties with a long graceful neck, as well as owners of curly curls, who in this particular case can afford to be original, advantageously highlighting the square with color coloring in any way.
Creative haircuts and colors
The initial geometry of the square allows hairdressers to create any extraordinary styles and images on its basis. Smooth cuts are perfectly complemented by sharp corners of the temples or smooth rounded lines.
The square of the square allows creativity and imagination to be realized, ranging from the forms of hairstyle presentation to the coloring style, which can be performed both as conservatively as possible, expressing civilized beauty, and extravagantly using a transverse two-tone ombre, based on the utmost minimalism of contrasting shades.
Consider the staining of an elongated square on a leg using a two-color ombre method in a platinum-blue range.
Classic ombre dyeing means giving the strands at least two shades, while the curls are dyed partially from the ends to the middle. To create a “winter” platinum style, two contrasting shades of platinum blond were chosen, followed by contrasting toning of the ends of the strands in a blue tint.
For staining you will need:
- comb with frequent teeth and a long thin handle;
- paint brush;
- protective gloves;
- bleaching paint;
- platinum-colored paint;
- blue paint;
- fixing balm;
- foil cut into squares.
- To obtain a platinum shade, you must first use a bleaching paint, applying it to your hair for 30-35 minutes, depending on the instructions for using the paint. In no case should the hair be washed beforehand, the natural fatty coating will protect the hair from injury during bleaching, after a while, wash off the paint.
- After making sure that the resulting shade is not yellow, you can proceed to the next stage of complete dyeing with platinum paint, having previously calculated the amount of paint depending on the length and volume of the hair. Using a brush, spread the color over the entire length of the hair and leave for about 20-25 minutes, without covering with anything, using the method of air dyeing, which is more gentle on the structure of the hair. After the time has elapsed, rinse the hair thoroughly.
- The third stage involves coloring the ends of the hair in a contrasting shade. Color each strand from the depths outward from a third of the length to a minimum height of about a centimeter and wrap in prepared foil. Leave to stain for about 15-20 minutes. Then gently rinse off the dye, directing the water strictly from top to bottom so that the dye does not spread onto the upper white part of the hair. The effectiveness of such coloring lies in the coloring of each subsequent strand progressively lowering the level of the paint arrangement.
Classic pastel palettes are not the only aesthetic option for coloring the square, shocking coloring is also quite ethical and will add extravagance to the image.
