How to Maintain and Style an Inverted Bob Haircut?

    • If you have layers, invest in a good round brush and blow dryer. This will allow you to style your hair easily especially if you have wavy hair.
    • Shampoo your hair twice or thrice weekly and moisturize them well or they will get dry. Your haircut won’t look cute on dry hair.
