Chopped A Line Lob

If you have a finer texture, keep the style one length with some shape around the midface. For thicker hair, get it a little thinned out for added texture.
Short Lived-In Choppy Shaggy Bob
A short lived-in choppy shaggy bob is an effortless, modern take to a classic haircut. It’s an eye-catching hair trend made by Australia-based stylist Stacey Wright.
This bob is achievable on both fine and thick tresses—even curly! The length at the front helps any face shape look elongated. Feel free to add a split fringe for more shape around the face.
This cut has chipped ends that are beneficial for ladies with finer density the most. “The chipped ends make the hair feel as though it has texture without losing the bulk,” says Wright.
Soft and bold! This short haircut is made even lovelier with a soft natural balayage, too. He explains, “We wanted this color to grow out softly yet feel textured with pairing it with a choppy concave lob.”

Choppy Cut for Fine Thin Hair
This short choppy cut is a tousled blunt bob on fine, thin hair. It’s disheveled yet can be dressed up or down. It was created by hairstylist Asuka Jacqueline Takei of Manhattan Beach, CA
The messy waves are created by “denting”, in different directions all over.
“Since it’s a messy short crop, you don’t have to worry about making those perfect dents with whatever tool you’re using. It can be created by flat iron, curling iron, or wands,” explains Takei.
Adding highlights to short choppy haircuts will brighten around the face, and soften everywhere else to minimize crazy visible regrowth. That way you can go for few months without refreshing the color.
“This choppy haircut is especially good for women with thin hair that’s short. The blunt ends will give a fuller look. If you have thicker hair, having more texture taken out will still give this fun short choppy bob without being too bulky,” she adds.
Beautifully Short Cropped Textured Hair

Short choppy hairstyles are often a low maintenance cut, but some require a good amount of styling to look like this picture every day.
