This classic hairstyle was born by every girl in the 70s who agreed with the message of the hippy generation. If you don’t have straight hair, you might want to get a permanent straightening solution or treatment, and get rid of your fringe. Parting your hair in the middle is a must, and you can look romantic with your hair down, while getting plenty of chances to create stylish buns and do-ups.

3. Textured Pageboy Bob

A perfect low-maintenance haircut that frames your face perfectly, while creating a playful look. If you don’t have a thick hair, or have very fine hair, you can use this textured style to increase the volume and lighten up your head. This look is great combined with long earrings, different clips, and hair accessories. The pageboy look can be textured to give you more hair, or flattened and straightened to create a more serious appearance.
