Allow us to introduce you to Bob. It all began in 1915 when ballroom dancer, Irene Castle, cut her hair into a bob! History says she cut it short for convenience, yet her style quickly caught on and so did the name Castle Bob. It became the most popular hairstyle of the Roaring 20's, also known as the Jazz Age.
Irene Castle (circa 1915) sporting a short haircut which would become a sensation. The "bob" was born. This was a total departure from the style of the day and it was considered almost scandalous by many.
Over a century later, the bob is still going strong. It is often worn in a more "severe" style with sharp, precise lines and a blunt fringe, or bangs. San Diego hair artist Todd DaSilva creates intrigue by combining sensational style with a magical color.
Frank Cini of Taz Hair Co. never ceases to amaze as he and his team put on the Ritz with this real life mannequin sporting a classic bob with a notched fringe.
