We only need one day of sunshine to have us kicking off our stockings and gearing up for the warmer weather. It's time for the heavy clothes, and in some cases heavy hair to go. If you're looking to shed your locks in exchange for shorter, flirty hair, take a look at three bob styles that are hot in salons this spring:
The Classic Bob
This look never goes out of style, no matter what season it is. Whether you opt for a longer look like Iman's or the staple short and blunt cut, this bob is great for those who want to get their hair cut in the beginning of spring and not have to worry about it through the summer. For the most modern feel, ask your stylist for long, angled bangs that can be worn swept to one side or pulled back. Keep bangs sleek and frizz-free with a smoothing serum like Phyto Phytolisse Finishing Serum and style with a round brush.

The "long bob," fondly referred to as the lob is a longer bob style that can provide you with a ton of variation when styling. Keep it straight and sleek, or style with some waves. When making a trip to the stylist, ask that they snip your strands so that they graze your shoulders in the front, and are slightly shorter in the back. With a longer style like this, you can dress it up with some hair accessories, like a jeweled clip or feather headband.

A Piece-y Bob
This style is perfect for those really wanting to shake things up this spring. Use a flat iron for a defined look, or muss it up with some texture gel, like Jonathan Dirt Texturizing Paste for a more separated, chunkier style.
Be wary of the chin-level cut if you have curly hair. Since your hair will be wet when getting cut, the tension in the curls will be weighed down from the water. When your hair dries, your length may be a few inches shorter than you originally intended. Stay on the safe side and get a cut that falls between the chin and shoulder blades.
