Bob Wigs: Everything You Need To Know

Human hair bob wig is a fashionable hairstyle in recent years. No matter what the styles are, short bob wigs, long bob wigs, curly bob wigs, wavy bob wigs, or straight bob wigs, they all suit women. Especially for wigs with bangs, it will make women look young and beautiful. Bob wigs for black women are the top products on the market. Because black girls are the largest consumer group of wigs in the world.

Types of human hair bob wigs

Since then bob hairstyles never go out of fashion. It was born at the beginning of the 20th century when women decided to say goodbye to the traditional long haircut and boldly cut their hair to chin length. Here are some tips for that timeless hairstyle.

Short bob wigs

A short bob is a great choice for women with thin and weak hair as it looks great even with straight hair. A short bob with natural waves will soften harsh facial features, and when combined with bangs, it looks especially youthful and playful. If you want to achieve a fuller hair effect, you can add surface highlights several shades lighter than your base color.

Long bob wig

If you’re uncomfortable cutting your hair into a short bob, a lob is a great compromise. You’ll get the haircut change you want without too much risk, and you’ll still be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or make a half bun tutorial.

A straight lob looks elegant and youthful at the same time. If your hair is naturally wavy or ‘stubby’ then this length will be ideal for you as the soft waves will add femininity and charm to your face with minimal effort.

Layered bob wigs

Strands of different lengths add volume to your hair and create a nice head shape. Short in the back, long around the face, a layered bob is always interesting, whether you wear your hair straight or with waves.

If you’re daring, you can opt for very short hair at the nape of your neck and long hair near the shoulder in the front: it may be more demanding to style, but you’ll always be noticed.

How to choose a natural bob wig that flatters your face shape?

Heart shaped face

Women with heart-shaped faces should consider haircuts that frame their beautiful cheekbones to create a fuller effect where the chin appears narrow.

A bouncy bob that gives fullness to the lower part of your face and visually reduces a wide forehead is ideal for this face shape, as well as combed bangs. The bob should not be shorter than chin length.

Round face

Women with round faces often believe that they have to wear long hair to elongate their faces. However, a bob hairstyle not longer than chin length can suit round faces and give them a youthful look.

If you want your face to look longer, avoid cutting your hair below chin length and part it to one side. This face shape also flatters asymmetrical hairstyles.

Oblong face

A chubby face can definitely look oval with the right haircut. A chin-length bob will create the illusion of width to make your face appear visually smaller.

Bangs and light waves will add volume to your hair and visually make the face smaller, so women with long facial features should wear playful, short and big bob haircuts.

Oval face

If you have an oval face, you can easily wear bob hairstyles of almost all shapes and lengths, so you can be as creative as you want.

A bob with sharp edges will accentuate the haircut, while natural waves will add romance and femininity to any occasion. Bold women can opt for a voluminous bob, or try a short bob with voluminous locks for a playful look.

Square face

Curls under the chin will soften sharp jaw lines and soften a square face shape. A bob haircut just below the chin will draw attention to the center of the face, meaning it will emphasize your eyes.

Bold bob haircuts with uneven edges floating around your face will also soften a square face, and the parting should be moved from the center to one side to break up the square texture and harsh impression.

Bangs can visually create a circle even on a square face, but they should not be too short or too wide – it is better if they are cut at the eye line.

How to wear your real hair into a bob wig?

Putting on a wig is a very straightforward concept. It is just like putting on a bonnet or skullcap. Apply the wig starting at the back of your head and bring the wig forward towards your hairline. Secure with the included combs. Depending on the size of your head, you may need to sew on a drawstring (if one is not available) or add a few more combs to keep your wig in place and prevent lifting.

When applying the wig to your head, it’s important to place your part exactly where you want it to be. Whether you choose a lace front wig or a full lace wig, it can be worn with a middle part or side parts depending on your preference.

How to protect your human hair bob wig?

Most clients don’t wear anything under their wig and it feels completely secure. However, we know that many of you want a little extra security when wearing your wig. Here are some great ways to make your wig feel extra secure.

Wig caps

Using a wig cap under your wig can not only prevent your wig from shaking or slipping, but also keep your wig clean, or collect your hair when it falls out.

Wig grip band

This is the most popular way to store your wig. Wear it under any wig, scarf or hat to keep it completely secure. We use a double-sided crushed velvet material, so one side grips your hair or skin, and the other side covers your wig or head. Our band is very comfortable to wear and has an adjustable Velcro closure at the back.

Metal wig clips

Sew the inside of your wig and then clip into your hair to keep your wig secure and in place.

Bobby pin

Does your wig need a little extra security? Try picking up some hair and sticking a few bobby pins from the wig pieces straight into your hair. You can also pin on the outside of the wig and on your temples.

Double sided tape

If you feel like it’s rolling and you don’t have hair, use it to secure. Place the tape anywhere inside the wig you choose, or cut a piece in half if you don’t need the whole piece.


Glue is perfect for women who don’t have hair and need a softer, extra security with their wigs. It’s a gentle roll-on body adhesive that washes off with water and won’t leave a stain. It is very flexible and moves with your skin.
