With the recent resurgence of ’70s hairstyles like the mixie cut, it isn’t surprising that the bottleneck bob is now enjoying popularity. With the weather heating up, this short hairstyle is a nice way to lop off extra layers, but with a sweet, fresh twist.
The bottleneck bob is a haircut ideal for framing the face. Unlike the classic bob, which is just a blunt cut across the neck or face, this hairstyle adds softness to the facial structure.
In essence, this haircut takes inspiration from the neck of a bottle, starting slim and short in the middle, and then long following the cheekbone line. This allows for the length and angle to be adjusted depending on whether you want your cheekbones to appear wider and more substantial, or if you’d prefer to create the appearance of a narrower face, drawing focus to your eyes and lips.
