The second and third places go to the bun and the fringe both averaging above 85 thousand monthly searches. Based on the search numbers, bobs are turning out to be the most popular style in 52 countries including the USA, UK, Belgium, Germany, and more!
Thoughts From a Professional
U.K. editorial ambassador for L’Oréal Professionnel, Adam Reed talked about the appeal of a boyfriend bob. He explains that it’s a shorter, bulkier, and more square-outlined look that’s very wearable and flattering. The expert says that this hairdo is changeable and adjustable according to a person’s personal style. Whether you choose to wear it messy and textured or smooth and sleek, the look still works on many levels.
Reed suggested to anyone interested in this hairstyle to discuss the options with their hairdresser, use pictures for inspiration, consider their face shape, and how to properly style it on a day-to-day basis.
Not all sandwiches are created equal. Some are double, and others are triple, like in Peru. Like many other staples in Peruvian cuisine, the sandwich triple relies on the abundance of local fresh ingredients. It requires ripe avocados, a layer of eggs or chicken (or both), and the third layer of sliced tomatoes to add freshness to the taste. Making this sandwich is not only quick and easy but super fun, too!
- 16 slices of white bread (crust removed)
- 2 to 3 ripe avocados
- 2 tomatoes, very thinly sliced
- 1 lime
- ¾ cup chicken salad, egg salad, or just sliced hard-boiled eggs
- ¼ cup mayonnaise, or to taste
How to Prepare Sandwich Triple, Peruvian Style
Start with the avocados. Slice them as thinly as you can and drizzle lime juice on top. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the tomatoes, and trim the crusts from the bread.
It’s time to assemble your sandwich triple. Take a slice of bread and spread mayonnaise on top. Then, layer avocado slices and top with another slice of bread that has mayonnaise on both sides. Arrange the middle section of the sandwiches by spreading the chicken or egg salad or just the sliced hard-boiled eggs. Add another slice of bread.
Spread the tomato slices on top and place the last slice of bread. Push down gently. Cut the sandwiches into triangles, and serve your sandwich triple, Peruvian style.
You can have these delicious sandwiches for breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon snacks, or dinner. They are the perfect party snack for movie nights and casual gatherings, and they only take about ten minutes to prepare. Feel free to switch up the order of layers to your liking. You can add chili flakes and other improvements to better suit your taste. Sky’s the limit!
