Bob Hairstyles: The 20 Hottest Bobs for 2014

I have a real affinity for long, graduated bobs with just a bit of wave in them, like this hairstyle on actress Ali Larter. It's a gorgeous look on all face shapes, particularly heart-shaped faces, says Larter's hairstylist Andy Lecompte in Allure Magazine.

According to Allure, Lecompte used thinning shears to soften up Larter's ends. He also added "invisible long layers" to her hair so it was less like a classic bob and more effortless and swingy. To get the beachy waves here, scrunch and tousle your hair as you blow-dry (or air-dry), then massage in a sea-salt spray. I like Bumble and Bumble or John Frieda's salt sprays, but Lecompte uses Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Hairspray.

To add more curls and drama to this look, follow my directions for beachy waves.
