Asymmetrical bobs are smaller in length, and is split into a hairstyle with an uneven cut in that one side is more long than the opposite. A huge resurgence during the year of 2018, this classic trendy hairstyle is suitable for any type of face and hair textures without requiring to be maintained in any way! It’s a great option for women who want to spice up the classic hairstyle. It’s a different take on the traditional style and can be more enjoyable since it eliminates boredom from a basic haircut! For a dramatic effect the symmetry of bobs must be striking. In the event that one side of the bob is identical to the other side, it’ll be insignificant.

Q&A session with style creator Kate Gallagher

Hairstylist @ Essence Center For Beauty in Old Saybrook, CT

What do you think of this style?

This particular style is an asymmetrical, sloping hairstyle. The main difference between this style and a typical graduated bob is the fact that the look is created by the heavy texturing beneath the occipital bone, which “collapses” the form and mimics the curvature that the face has. I like sculpted bobs that are collapsed because I find them simpler to create than a graduated style I also think they give a more contemporary appearance. This shade was created by me in the six months prior to the time this photo was taken. I used OLIGO’s Clay Lightener for some facial framing balayage and teasy light followed by a tone with the Redken Shades EQ Gloss. I absolutely love this type of balayage on my brunettes because of the low maintenance. My brunette balayages have their color changed only every few months which is great for busy moms as well as working professionals.

Anyone have any advice for those who are considering the idea?

This asymmetrical bob is able to be adapted to almost any facial shape, except for one that is oblong, since the length at the front could highlight the longer face. I also suggest consulting with your client regarding their lifestyle prior to deciding on this style as there is no option to secure the hair which means they’ll need to dedicate themselves to wearing headbands or pins when they exercise or train.

A hairstyle of this length is also required to be styled throughout the day, which is why it’s crucial to assess the amount of time you have to devote to the hair each morning. The hairstyle can be styled curly or straight depending on the texture of the hair. I suggest blow drying using a paddle brush in an a wrap drying style with a smoothing product such as Pureology Smoothing Serum to smooth and straighten hair. If you have naturally curly hair can apply a curl activator such as Moroccan Oil Curl Defining Cream or air drying or blow drying using diffuser. The hair was blow-dried straight, and then curled using the help of a 1.25inch marcel iron, creating an elongated curl.

Medium Length Asymmetrical Lob Cut

Q&A with the style creator, Lizzy O’Leary

Stylist @ Whistle Salon in New York, NY

What would you say about this style?

This vibrant red long bob that is symmetrical in Melanie is a great variation on a traditional design and shape! Melanie is a trendy designer of clothing who has her own business. So we collaborated to create this asymmetrical bob which can be elegant and fun. I love the unique straight-from-the-box color formula (we employ Wella Koleston Perfect for the base, and Wella Blondor Balayage pieces to give subtle depth and the Wella Color Touch Relights glaze to create a deep, yet transparent and glowing tone).

Melanie is a natural hair that is level 4 and we add some level 10 in the level 7 red formula to give her the extra lift. We are the Wella Master Color Expert, and I’ve always enjoyed the idea that once you’ve mastered the rules in and out, you are able to problem solve problems by breaking or bent them!

Do you have any suggestions for someone who is thinking about this?

The best thing about an asymmetrical hairstyle is that it’s quite easy to use! There are a variety of hairstyle options, based on the type of hair you have and texture. Hair that is curly or straight is beautiful when it’s paired with an enhancing product for curls that is scrunched the humid air and dried for an easy and relaxed style.

Melanie wanted some texture to the straighter style of her hair she had this time around, therefore we made loose, slightly curled wave using flat iron. Sometimes, she prefers an elegant look, so we flat iron straight. It’s all about your mood this is why it is a versatile hairstyle (but with a twist!) I prefer this cut for those with thicker hair, oval, heart-shaped or round faces, but the rules are designed to be to be broken!

Pink Pastel A-line Bob

Q&A with the style creator, Bettina Frost

Stylist @ Gila Rut Aveda Salons in San Diego, CA

What do you think of this style?

I’d add “versatility.” With the help of gentle graduations over the nape and keeping long layers, she’s capable of creating a variety of styles like this A-line bob style. You can wash and wear it with minimal effort, or simply add rings of iron that are flat around the top to spice it up, increase the illusion of volume and give it motion. You can also flat-iron for more smoothness and a more look. If she gives it an A-line design, it allows the wearer to look relaxed in line with her busy working and lifestyle.

Anyone have any advice for those who are considering the idea?

Although it could be an unusual style for the majority of people hairstyles, this particular asymmetrical haircut is able to be adjusted in many different ways. It’s not often that I steer a client from trying it. In the event that your face appears more round this is a great option because it lengthens the face shape. In the event that your face appears more long and based on your hairline I could reduce the angle and raise the length up to or below the chin to the front. I could suggest a long side fringe that helps to broaden the cheekbones. The hair’s texture, density, the ability to keep it in place, and the ability to cut will determine the need of an undercut as well as the intensity of the graduation, as well as where I will place the layers.

In general, I suggest a 6 week pre-book in order to keep it in good shape and fresh. It is however, appealing to those who are low maintenance also, since this will grow beautifully. Due to the initial angles and shape of the perimeter as it grows out, it gets less concave and may appear more round This is also pleasing. Therefore, depending on the initial direction of cut it could take months before it loses any shape and becomes convex, and appears like it’s hanging down or sliding in the back.

Beachy Waves Asymmetrical Bob Haircut

Q&A with the style creator, Jessica Evans

Hairstylist @ Space07 Salon in Sacramento, CA

What would you say about this style?

It’s a very cool texture. It’s a little symmetrical, which is fun, but also offers the user the possibility of straightening it to keep it clean and elegant.

Anyone have any advice for those who are considering this?

It’s not obvious in the image, but she has a huge undercut in her back. Therefore, we need to make sure that we keep that cut shaved to ensure that it doesn’t grow shaggy. The overall appearance (color as well as cut) is extremely high maintenance. Additionally, it’s a long process to achieve at all. Any person who wants to try this look must be prepared to invest the money and effort to maintain it both in the salon as well as at home.

Short Layered Bob

Opt for a more textured and layers hairstyle that is asymmetrical. A long side part with a deep, gorgeous blonde hue make the look complete.

Shaggy Asymmetrical Bob

Q&A with the style creator Kim Taglienti

Hairstylist @ Art + Science Salon & Spa in Philadelphia, PA

What do you think of this style?

This style is a smooth, shaggy asymmetrical hairstyle with a chocolate color base which melts into the color of milk chocolate/caramel. The most interesting thing about it is that it has texture and depth. I love things with symmetry in their appearance, and having dimensional hair colors help highlight the best features of the hair. I am a huge fan of using the curling iron or wand to add texture and waves to hair.

Do you have any suggestions for someone who is thinking about this?

Absolutely do it! This particular client has lots and plenty of hair, however, I’ve also done it on those with shorter hair. Hair of all types can make this asymmetrical style! The shape of the face can dictate the length as well as the layers, based on how long or short we take.

For this client, I used Aveda’s glossening straightener for wet hair. Then I used the damage remedy for daily repair of dry hair before curling. I finished her off with Aveda’s Control Force hair spray. This cut is great for any way of life because, depending on how long you’ll have left, you’ll still be able to put it back into ponytail.

The Side-Swept Bob with Bangs. Asymmetric Bob with Bangs

Q&A with the style creator, Antonio Demetrio

Team Consultant / Manager @ Headmasters in London, UK

What would you say about this style?

The “Lobsymetric” It’s an interesting twist on a recent trend, which has been called “the the lob” (long hairstyle). With the addition of an asymmetrical element it highlights how long the lob is, and gives a unique boho-inspired side-swept look.

Anyone have any advice for those who are considering the idea?

The asymmetrical bob and bangs was created on the shape of a heart. With a longer length, it softens the appearance and adds contrast with the shorter sides which highlights its bone structures. The hair should be rough dried to create the natural look of texture as well as volume. After that, gently twirl the longer parts to create boho-inspired indie waves that break up and relax the hardness and volume.

I applied L’Oreal Techni Art Pli when blow drying to increase the natural texture of the bangs bob hairstyle, and also create an underlying structure that allows the waves to remain as I did a wave and completed my asymmetrical bob using the combination with Paul Mitchell super skinny serum and Redken rough past. This blend is great to define and soften waves since this serum softens and gloms the hair, while it defines and splits hair waves. It also highlights the texture, while maintaining the hair’s shape throughout the day.

If you’re thinking that you’re a fan of this style, it’s perfect for all hair types and types of lifestyles. You can style this look elegantly for a professional appearance as well as casual and messy for your casual occasions.

Wavy Asymmetrical Bob

Q&A session with the creator of style Sabrina Jeffreys

Hairstylist @ Salon Surreal in Evans, GA

What do you think of this style?

The best feature of this wavy Asymmetrical bob is the texture cut which is so refreshing and enjoyable! The model has lots of hair and I wanted to have some movement, but not appear too heavy. I was able to achieve this through cutting with a razor, cutting point and texturing. I used balayage to her hair, adding a bit more highlighting around her eyes. In order to finish this asymmetrical bob style I made use of an iron for curling marcel. There are a variety of irons available to create this look. A symmetrical bob cut with a razor can look a bit more sophisticated.

Anyone have any advice for those who are considering the idea?

It’s great for all facial shapes and hair styles. It’s an enjoyable method to change your hair in case you’d like to trim some length but you’d like to increase it easily. For styling, you’ll have to employ a styling mouse or cream (depending on the type of hair you have) to have more control over hair curling or blow drying. It is an excellent idea, particularly for hair that has been colored. After curling, brush or comb through the curls with an open or vented brush, and finish with a medium-hold hairspray, which will leave hair that is comfortable and soft.

Asymmetrical Bob For Fine Hair

asymmetrical bob for fine hair

This cut is a soft and more fashionable variation of an asymmetrical bob that was popular just a few years ago. Your stylist should utilize both the scissors as well as the razor. The scissors will ensure that the hairline stays straight while using the razor to create texturing the hair to keep it soft and light. The most impressive aspect of it is dramatic effect that the angle creates that is close to the face.

Are you willing to commit to this look and cut it close to your hairline? This cut will appear totally different when you have a longer length.

Where is the point of the longest at the top? Chin length? Collarbone? What is your angle? Do you prefer an stacked bob or one-length bob that has texture? Do you have time and love making your hair look good? This is not an easy wash-and-wear style. It should be styled using round brushes, flat iron or both.

When you think about an asymmetrical bob think about the shape of your face, and also the length of your neck. Should you be sporting a neck that is shorter it could be that the bob is nearly touch your shoulders. Should you be blessed with a longer neck, a chin-length bob could look a little too small. A bob looks completely different for every shape of face and body shape.

The thoroughness of your consultations is essential to create an asymmetrical hairstyle that you will love!
