Actress Julianne Hough is the queen of sexy asymmetrical bob hairstyles. Sometimes, this hairstyle runs the risk of looking too edgy, but Hough made it look almost sophisticated and chic by mixing her gorgeous bob with a little side-swept bang.

Modern and flirty, the length and cut really suit Julianne’s oval-shaped face. She keeps her rounded bob at the bottom and slightly flipped her bangs in front for a softer outline that accentuates her face features.

Thirteen actress Evan Rachel Wood brought the retro glamour to the red carpet with this finger waves hairstyle. Time consuming and tricky, this rare hairstyle can blow everyone at your next party.

To recreate this vintage look, you need a lot of finger-wave lotions, plenty of setting gel, a comb and duck bill clips. For a modern method though, you can use the curling tong instead of the comb. Regardless of which way you choose, it is time consuming. Start with applying a strong-hold gel and create a deep side partition. Then, take a comb and create waves in place with fingers, all the way down your scalp. Now, use a duck bill clip to secure each wave. Remove the clips out once the hair is completely dry.

5. Bold Blunt Bob:

To create this edgy and modern hairstyle, first apply hair serum to keep it looking shiny. Then, blow dry and straighten your hair as needed, and with the help of a round brush, pull your hair back and spray with a firm-hold hairspray.
