Ah, the curly bob. A beautiful and bold haircut that screams sexy that’s spicing up our social media feeds. It comes in a variety of different lengths (aka a lob if you want to keep some length) and styles to suit each and every one of us, so you can quit worrying about whether you can pull it off. FYI – you most certainly can.
What’s more, you don’t have to have naturally curly hair to have a curly bob cut. Nothing’s out of reach if you know your way around curlers or rollers.
If you’re reading this right now, you’re probably already debating getting the chop, so here are 5 more reasons why you should run, not walk, to the salon for a curly bob cut. It’s time to spice up yo’ life!

- Adds Volume
If your hair is on the thinner side, it’s not recommended to let it grow past your shoulders, making the short curly bob perfect for those looking to add more volume.
The longer your hair is, the more it’ll weigh, causing you to lose fullness and volume at the root – it’s just straight physics. Whether you aced physics in high school or not, you can’t argue with gravity. The curly bob haircut will lose the extra weight of your hair and help it to bounce back up again.
And if you have thick hair, there’s no such thing as too much volume, right? To make your curly bob cut live up to its full potential, use Curls N’ Clouds Volume Spray as part of your new haircare routine. Simply spray at your roots, flip your head over, and gently massage into the hair.

- Curls Will Appear More Defined
If you’ve noticed your curls have become looser, it could be down to the length of your hair. When you cut curly hair, curls become lighter, giving them more spring so they’re able to form tighter curls. But when it grows in length, curls can often appear less defined as the weight of longer hair stretches them out and loosens the curls. So, if you’re looking to tighten your curls, you know what to do (get the curly bob haircut!).
To maintain your tight curls, try Curls N’ Clouds Bamboo Afro Pick. Its wide teeth allow curls to pass through with ease without any unnecessary tugging that can upset your natural curl pattern.
- Super Low Maintenance
Less hair = less maintenance. Facts. Long curly hair takes longer to wash, dry, and style, which is no biggie for girls with patience. But for those of us who lack in that department, it can feel like a bit of a chore sometimes, so if you fancy some time off, a short curly bob just makes total sense.

- Enhances Your Jawline
Before you top up your fillers or make your first appointment, let’s consider the curly bob cut real quick. When the length stops right at the jawline, this haircut can dramatically sharpen the jawline as it’s on full display, framed even, rather than being hidden behind curls on top of curls. *Immediately cancels the appointment*.
- Suitable for All Year Round
A curly bob now in spring? Cute. A curly bob in the middle of winter? Yup, like we said, still cute. It’s a completely classic hairstyle that’s basically the equivalent of a red lippy, and that’s sure as hell not going anywhere.
It won’t sit on your back and make you feel hot and bothered or force you to wear it up in a bun for half of the year during warmer months. And it won’t get caught in your jacket zipper or fall flat during winds in colder months – windswept is never cute.
