Long bob for fine hair yes or no?

I have very fine nana hair and in my chubby 40s have finally found what works for me. I blow dry, straighten and apply dry shampoo/volumising powder. On the plus side, it's in good condition and grows very fast.

I've always wanted a bob. I'm also busy and although my hair looks better on the first day, I'm finally able to leave two days between washes by wearing it up for work.

I know I'm not going to look like this but I love the cut. Does anyone with fine hair manage to make a bob look good and fit it in with busy mornings?

If you already have time to blow dry, straighten and apply product then you've def got time to maintain a bob.

That's the problem, I do that the night before. I could blow dry it day one at a push, I leave at 06:45. I don't want to style it every day. Nuts

I have a very similar cut and fine hair. It works really well with my hair type but honestly only looks good when freshly washed and blow dried. So I do that one morning then the next day I put it up. TMI but I sweat a lot at night so if i washed and dried it at night then slept on it it wouldn't look great. But you might be ok with a bit of dry shampoo

I have a long bob and fine hair, it takes me less than 5 minutes in the morning to dry it, and I wash it every day, I don't straighten it as I don't need to.
I find its an easy style to wear as I can put it up if I need to

I suppose it's fine and thin so doesn't take too long to dry. I need to check pinterest out to see if I can find easy styles to pin it up.
