everything about bob wigs

Bob wigs are a fantastic way to change up your look without committing to cutting your hair too short. These wigs are created from either human hair or synthetic hair and are available in various styles and colors to accommodate different looks and facial shapes.

When selecting a bob wig, take into consideration the wig’s density and texture. For people who like a full and bouncy bob, a high-density wig that’s kinky or curly is an excellent option. For a slick, polished bob, go for a medium-density wig with straight hair. 

Keswigs only sells high quality bob wigs that can be heat-styled, dyed, and cut, making them a supremely versatile choice for people looking for natural-looking wigs.

What are Synthetic Wigs/Bob Wigs

Synthetic hair wigs are wigs constructed from synthetic fibers, intended to resemble human hair in appearance and feel. They often cost less than real hair wigs and need less maintenance because they don’t need to be washed or styled as much.

Here is a detailed article about the differences and similarities between synthetic wigs and human hair wigs.

Bob wigs are wigs with a bob hairstyle. This haircut has a length between the chin and the shoulders. Bob wigs come in a range of shapes and colors to fit anyone’s preference, and they can be created from either natural human hair hair or synthetic hair.

How to Style Bob Wigs

Here are the step-by-step guides to styling bob wigs.

How to Style a Short/Short Wavy Bob Wigs

Here’s how to style a short bob wig:

  1. First, brush the wig thoroughly to eliminate any tangles or knots. Make sure to use a wig brush or a wide-toothed comb.
  2. For human hair wigs, spray on a heat protectant and use a hair dryer on a low heat setting to dry the wig if it is damp. 
  3. If the wig is made of synthetic fibers, make sure it is fully air-dried before styling it. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, heat will melt the fibers of synthetic wigs.
  4. If you want to change the wig’s part, use a tail comb to do it easily. 
  5. To keep the style in place, use wig-specific styling products like mousse, gel, or hair spray.
  6. Finally, ensure that the wig is cool and set before moving or handling it.

How to Cut and Style Wigs in a Bob With Layers

If you want to cut and style a wig in a bob with layers, follow these steps:

  1. To begin, divide the hair into layers. You may divide each portion using clips or ponytail holders.
  2. Cut the hair at the appropriate length to style it into a bob. A bob usually ends at the chin, or slightly above the shoulders.
  3. Start cutting the layers from the bottom and work your way up. For a more natural look, cut the hair diagonally.
  4. Blend the layers together with scissors or thinning shears.
  5. After cutting and styling the wig to your liking, use a brush or comb to remove any knots or frizziness.
  6. Finally, for further styling, you may either finger-comb it for a more organic, carefree appearance, or use a flat iron or curling iron to add texture and volume.

If you’re new to wig styling, it is recommended to practice on a cheap wig before doing this on an expensive one. Have a clear idea of what you want to achieve before beginning the cut.

How to Cut Human Hair Bob Wigs

  • Human hair bob wig
  • Wig head

  • Hair clips or ponytail holders

Detailed Steps:

  1. Secure the wig onto a wig head or stand. This will make the wig easier to work with.
  2. Comb through the hair to remove any tangles or knots.
  3. Section off the hair into layers using hair clips or ponytail holders. This will make it easier to cut and style the hair.
  4. Determine the desired length of the bob. 
  5. Use scissors or shears to cut the hair at the desired length. Make sure to cut the hair diagonal for a more natural look.
  6. Once the length is set, begin cutting the layers. Start at the bottom and work your way up.
