Hair Do’s and Don’t: The Emergence of the Braided Bob

It seems like 90’s fashion and beauty are experiencing a serious resurgence. From flannel, plum lips, and high-waisted mom jeans, fashion has really taken a blast from the past. It’s 90’s hairstyles however, that are making the biggest comeback on the scenes.

Even some of the hottest celebs are rocking Janet Jackson box braids, Bantu knots and Marley twists. But what about the Moesha braided bob? As much as we love us some Brandy, one could wonder if the 90’s throwback should be making a comeback or just stay back.

It’s true, braided hairstyles are low maintenance and a great way to protect your hair if installed and maintained properly. It allows an individual to switch up their look without having to make a commitment to one hairstyle. Furthermore, braids don’t have to be long to make a statement. Braided bobs can be chic, sophisticated or edgy. These bobs are easy to style and very versatile.

If you’re going for a sophisticated and chic look, try the classic bob. The classic bob is everything a basic braided bob is supposed to be. It’s an angled bob style that curls under the chin like a classic bob would. This style is very flattering on just about anyone because it perfectly frames one’s face.

If you’re going for a flirty and chic look, the bob with bangs maybe an even better option. The bangs add a special flirty, youthfulness to the look and tends to accentuate the eyes.

 The long bob with thick braids is also very chic and versatile. This bob allows you to easily pull the hair back into a ponytail or a bun. The thickness of the braids creates a lush appearance while being manageable and frizz free.

Braids and buns definitely sends Moesha vibes, right! This is when you take a classic bob and style the top half of the braids into “Minnie Mouse” buns. This look can be cute and girly or a hair don’t. If two buns are too much for your liking, try the bob topped with a single bun. High buns and top knots offer an alternative to a half-up and down ponytail. 

This style brings out the face. Spruce up your bob with a little bit of color and edge like with the braided and wrapped bob.

This  bob starts with cornrows and ends as freely hanging tight plaits sealed and curled under. The braided and wrapped bob definitely gives edge and color to the basic bob.

So, as the 90’s era emerges on the scene with beauty and fashion, the hair industry has been greatly influenced. From box braids to Marley twists, these styles are certainly making their marks in hairstyles today. But should all 90’s hairstyles, like the braided bob, make its comeback or just stay back? What are your thoughts?
