If you're looking for a versatile shorter style, you might opt for a bob. Brush up on this timeless cut with Groupon's exploration.
The Bob: A Look of Liberation
In 1909, a Polish-born Parisian hairdresser known simply as Monsieur Antoine one day found inspiration in Joan of Arc's pageboy hairstyle, a cropped cut she snipped herself to blend in with the knights of her era. Thus the bob began its trajectory into an iconic 'do. Easier to style and less traditionally feminine-looking than the long styles of the time, the cut maintained an edgy reputation for decades to come. It spread like wildfire among artistic, independent-minded women, and European ladies as prominent as Coco Chanel began chopping off their tresses.
In the same decade, a new wave of popularity swept through the U.S. by accident. Dancer Irene Castle, known for popularizing ballroom dance and for her fashion savvy, cut off her hair prior to having her appendix removed to avoid having to comb it while recuperating. Once healed, she ventured out in public with chin-length, slightly curly locks and set off scores of imitators.
The cultural persona with the most enduring connection to the bob may be the 1920s flapper as exemplified by silent siren Louise Brooks, for whom the hairstyle complemented more streamlined dress silhouettes and an image as a fun-loving rule-breaker. After that, the bob went decidedly mainstream: Hollywood starlets of the 1930s begin sporting softer, more feminine bobs on screen, and the style took on more volume—and even more hairspray—with the teenagers of the 1950s. Today, the style has lost its rebellious edge, but it still evokes female independence—as many a sexy boss or powerful businesswoman of TV or film can demonstrate.
The stylists at Salon Istanbul are hair-color specialists—nothing can stop them from achieving the ideal shade for each client. To complement a bold new hue or subtle face-framing highlights, they offer on-trend cuts, smoothing keratin treatments, and fanciful updo styles for special occasions. Stylists ensure that brides-to-be avoid any hitches, even offering a "dress-up" box full of accessories to see what will best complement their wedding-day hair, dress, and blue jelly sandals. Whatever the service, guests are welcome to enjoy on complimentary snacks and drinks, and they can even plop down in front of the studio's fire as hair color sets.
