28 Gorgeous Takes on the Inverted Bob

When you’re ready for a fresh new haircut, an inverted bob might be just right! Don’t be afraid to take your favorite features from the examples below and combine them to create your perfect version of the angled bob. Play around with the length, bangs or no bangs, layers, symmetry, and color to land on the bob that is perfect for you. Here are our 28 favorite examples of this trendy bob!

1. A-Line Bob With Feathered Fringe

Inverted, or A-line, bobs can be show-stopping on their own, but we love the soft, feathered fringe with this example. It opens up the front and keeps the style from looking too stiff.

2. Inverted Bob With Shadow Root

Blonde highlights and a deeper shadow root are the perfect complements for this short, inverted version of the classic bob cut. Blow-dry with a round brush to achieve these gently tucked ends.

3. Ombre Inverted Lob

Inverted lobs are becoming wildly popular because the medium length has so many styling options. Eye-catching ombre color brings a fresh twist to this in-between length.

4. Sleek With Blunt Bangs

Prefer shiny, sleek styles that make the most of a straight hair texture? Look no further than this stacked bob with blunt bangs. Add a little shine serum to polish the style with a perfect finish.

5. Short-to-Long Layered Bob

Invert your bob by keeping it lob-length in the front (barely touching the collarbone) and short in the back. Lots of short layers create a flattering boost of volume at the back.

6. Basic Inverted Chin-Length Bob

Easy to style, low-maintenance, and flattering on every face shape, this chin-length version of the inverted-style bob is a winner in every category.

7. Subtle Shaved Bob

A shaved undercut bob is lightweight and creates additional volume. That’s perfect for women with thin or fine hair in need of a boost!

8. Warm Blonde Angled Bob

Warm blonde tones always flatter warm or neutral undertones in the skin. If you look best in gold jewelry (gold and silver look equally flattering), try this warm, buttery blonde with your angled bob haircut.

9. Inverted Mulberry Bob

This Fall-ready mulberry color has rich red, purple, and brown tones in it that are perfect for cool and neutral undertones. Rock the color in combination with an inverted and sleek bob for a polished look.

10. Angled Bob for Thick Hair

Ladies with super-thick manes, you might think inverted bobs aren’t right for your hair type. But with the right layering, a perfectly stacked and inverted hairstyle can be so flattering on thick hair!

11. Silvery Lilac A-Line Bob

Cool-toned silver with a hint of lilac brings a subtly inverted bob to life. Add side-swept, face-framing bangs with choppy layers for added interest.

12. Inverted Blonde Bob

Take your bottle blonde to the next level with a gently inverted angled bob. The longer pieces in the front perfectly frame the face, but the short length in the back keeps it lightweight.

13. Collarbone-Grazing Lob

Did you know that you can play up your collarbones and visually lengthen your neck with a lob that hits right at the collarbone? This medium-length bob is shorter in the back and gradually slants forward for a perfectly inverted shape.

14. Bold Platinum Angled Bob With Fringe

Fearless trendsetters will appreciate this bold and vibrant look with a full, heavy fringe across the forehead. Sparkling platinum blonde turns heads on its own, but with this angled cut paired with blunt bangs, you’re sure to be the center of attention.

15. Subtly Undercut Angled Bob

A high undercut that reaches the temple area keeps a short bob lightweight without excess bulk around the face. This has a slimming effect, especially for women with round faces!

16. Chin-Length With Wispy Ends

Removing bulk and weight from the ends keeps a short, chin-length bob from making the face look round. Rock this slanted bob with razored or point-cut ends for a lightweight, dynamic feel.

17. A-Line Midi Bob

Not quite long enough to be considered lob nor short enough to fit under the bob category, this could be called a midi bob. We love how it gently angles forward – perfect if you’re not a fan of the steep angle seen in other A-line styles.

18. Inverted Asymmetrical Lob

Bring together two trendy bob types – the inverted and asymmetrical bobs – for a truly unique and fun style. In asymmetrical bobs, one side is longer than the other. And since the back is shorter than the front, it’s also considered inverted.

19. Fire Engine Red Layered Bob

Up for a bold, new color? Channel your inner Ariel with this fire-engine red color paired with choppy layers and a gently angled length that is shorter in the back.

20. Angled Bob With Face-Framing Layers

Bring a little symmetry to your angled bob by creating a downward angle with gradual layers in the front. This style would work beautifully on straight, wavy, or curly textures.

21. Dip-Dyed Inverted Bob

Strawberry blonde roots and mid-shaft give way to a faded, cool-toned blue-gray at the ends. This edgy dip-dyed look is perfect for drawing attention to the unique, inverted shape of this steep-angled bob.

22. Lazy Chic Inverted Lob

Lazy chic is the aesthetic many of us wish we could nail – looking good without putting in an hour of effort in the morning. With this casual cut, lazy chic is easy! Just air dry and enjoy your natural texture with this inverted lob.

23. Radiant Red Angled Bob

The secret to adding a little oomph to any hairstyle? A bright, vibrant hair color like this radiant red. We love how it shines and draws the eye to the angled shape of this bob.

24. A-Line Lob With Asymmetrical Bangs

Have a little fun with an A-line bob by adding asymmetrical bangs! They fall across the forehead in an unexpected slant to draw the focus to the eyes.

25. Inverted and Side-Parted Bob

No need to get fancy or complex with an inverted or angled bob – just part it to the side and wear your natural texture for a classic and casual look. This cut would look great with bangs, too!

26. Sleek and Lightweight A-Line Bob

Women with thin or fine hair love A-line bobs because they make the most of the hair’s existing texture and fullness. This sleek version doesn’t need a ton of volume to look amazing!

27. Color Contrast

While the bold color contrast may work better for the runway than for every day, the shape of this inverted cut is the real star. Heavy blunt bangs put the focus on the eyes and center of the face, while the chin-length helps emphasize the jawline.

28. Espresso Brown Angled Bob

A deep and rich brunette shade like the espresso brown shown here perfectly complements a bold cut. With blunt bangs and thick, unlayered ends, this is a high-volume style that manages to look sleek with a little shine serum and a quick flat iron.
