Baroque Bob 


How about we give my hair some oomph? Let’s make it voluminous and bold – the kind of hair that turns heads! 🤍#volumioushair #blowouthair #90shairstyle #bighair #fyp #hairtutorial #blackwomen #bobcut #blackgirltiktok #letsdomyhair #volumioushair

I know the end of winter means silk press season is over, but before you put down your straighteners, check out this baroque bob cut that is so *spring*. Basically, a baroque bob is a voluminous bob with lots of polished, bouncy curls. While this hairstyle is mostly worn on straight hair, textured girlies can still chop their curls in this shape and add mousse (or curling cream and gel) to get that voluminous effect. 

Layers on Layers 

Layers is the 2023 hair trend that continues to carry on. And I get the hype. If you want your curly mane to frame your face, then layers are your best friend. Plus, you have so much versatility with layers. You can go the curtain bangs route to accentuate your eyes and cheekbones or opt for long layers to keep things simple and chic. Options are endless. 

‘90s Pixies Cut

Next time you go to the salon, ask your hairdresser for that Nia Long circa ‘90s pixie hair. While it technically never went out of style, pixies are seeing a resurgence this spring and you definitely want to be in on the trend. And pixies are great for the girlies who want to undergo a big chop! I did one myself four years ago and I never regretted it. 

Side Bangs 

More and more Black women are ditching centered bangs for a side-swept one. While I’m not fully on board—my childhood experiences with side bangs still haunt me to this day—I can see the appeal. Especially since side bangs typically don’t require any chops or snips and you can wear them with any hairstyle, from a Barbie ponytail to mini buns. 

Curly Shaggy Haircut

Now, this is my next haircut. A shaggy hairdo is the right choice if you’re looking for a bouncy, full mane with wispy bangs and choppy layers to suit your facial features. A curly shag (done right) will accentuate your bone structure and give you that voluminous, full body look
