The classic short bob haircut is timeless and always in fashion. Everyone seems to be opting for the short bob this summer, from Demi Lovato’s chocolate-brown, sleek, and shaped bob to Jemima Kan’s long, lazy lob. There are many ways to style this shorter hairstyle and it is easier to grow it out if you decide to do so.
1. INVERTED BOB CUT + BOONDE OMBRE
You don’t need to have long hair. This look is our favorite – the bob with blonde ombre and the bob cut. These are two looks that are hot right now, and will continue throughout the seasons.
2. SHORT LINE BALAYAGE HIGHLIGHTS + BOB + BLONDE BALAYAGE
This slender, more structured bob is highlighted with blonde balayage highlights. It adds depth and dimension to an otherwise flat look. Balayage/ombre is very in-demand right at the moment so this look will be a standout for all the right reasons.
3. MESSY BOOB HAIRSTYLE
This messy bob hairstyle is perfect for girls who don’t like their sleek and structured hair or want to make it look a little more sophisticated. To create those gorgeous wide ringlets, use a curling iron and then gently tame them with your fingers. If you have trouble with your roots, you can use heated rollers to give it some extra power. Hairspray will help keep the look in place. The curls will not fall out as fast if you don’t have long hair. Bonus!
4. ASH BLONDE IS A SLICKED BACK BOB
The classic bob is still in style, but it’s been worn differently. Trends from the 80’s are back, and only one was wet-looked slicked hair. This look is for you if all that seems too complicated. It’s the ash blonde, slicked-back bob. Use a comb and some moist-look gel (as much or as little as you are able to use) to comb your hair back toward your face, towards the nape and behind the ears. This simple, yet impactful look is not for the faint-hearted.
5. CURLY, BURGUNDY BOB – HAIRSTYLE
You don’t need to have subtle hair when you can have stunning curly, burgundy hairstyles that are stylish for every reason! The red color is stunning and complements her incredible makeup skills. Her curls are a great way of adding some style to your hair, especially for big events or dates.
6. ASYMMETRICAL BOB
A bob is best for round faces. The worry is that your face will look smaller. This can be a problem if you are already worried about it. Asymmetrical styles can help to counteract the roundness of short hair. Your focal point will not be in the middle of your head like it would with a central parting. The off-centre position will offset your roundness. This is a clever trick!
7. TEXTURED SHORT BOB CUT
Add texture to your look when all else fails. This graduated bob adds texture to any look. It is longer at the front than at the back. The hair is tangled with mousse and waves with a curling tool. This look can be achieved at home in ten minutes. For big volume, blow-dry your hair upside-down.
8. CUTE & WAVY SMALL BOB
Layers are best for square faces. Layers can be paired with short bobs. A bob cut will not suit a person with a straight face. You’ll get the best idea if you choose something lighter and more feathered than something sharp and sleek.
9. MESSY BLUNT BOOB
This look is Kim Kardashian-esque, and it’s on-trend. The messy bob is something that most Kardashian sisters have worn at one time or another, whether it’s blonde, brunette, or pastel. To add volume and texture, choose a blunt cut that falls below the chin. To get that smudged up look, use textured wax when styling it.
10. BLONDE BOB WITH LAYERS
A bob that is too harsh for older women can cause damage to delicate facial features. This is possible with short bob hairstyles. A bob with layers can be achieved. In this instance, it’s a gorgeous blonde bob that will grow to an ombre-like mid-length with minimal maintenance.
11. BRONDE BOXED BOB
Bronde is the summer’s go-to color. It’s a combination of blonde and brown that creates a gorgeous nude color Mac lipstick lovers would be proud to wear. Your hair is the only thing that will match your summer nude makeup, and it’s you! This is a beautiful shade and one that is much loved by celebrities like the Kardashians. Jennifer Lopez wore the bronde bombshell look recently.
12. BRUNETTES – CHOPPY BUNT BOB
Here’s another way to wear a slightly layered, but one-length, short bob for those who aren’t blonde. You can see that some lighter highlights were added to give depth, but this cut is still easy enough to wear with your natural hair color and maybe some sun-bleached highlights, if you have the time!
13. CHIN LENGTH BOB CUT
If you have an oval-shaped face, the chin length is ideal. You can also rock a centre parting with those little curls. Some blonder highlights have been added to the ends of the hair to give it some shine.
14. SHORT AND ASYMMETRIC STYLE
A short, asymmetrical style such as this is very unambiguous. This is a powerful look that’s bold, brave, sharp, and sleek. This hair is easy to lighten and make flirtier by adding a few curls. You could also ‘punk’ it up by giving the roots a lot of volume and keeping the sides short. You can think faux-mohawk, and you will get the idea.
15. CURLY, BEIGE BLONDE BOB
A side parting is a great way to add volume to slim or oval faces. This look is great for all face shapes. A one-length bob that cuts to the chin and has a heavy side parted is a great choice. Emma Roberts recently wore this style in a gorgeous beige blonde.
16. BOB HAIRSTYLE – BLACK WOMEN
Deep slicing looks great, but it is best when the style is sharp and clean. Black women have the advantage of having hair that is easy to style. Your hair straighteners can be used to straighten or curl your hair. To add some twirls to your hair, simply flick your fronts as you pull it down.
17. VOLUMINOUS BOB STYLE
A textured bob is the best style for a full-faced person. Think softened ends and feathery layers. Bangs can be worn with this look, which Katharine McPhee recently wore. You can make your bangs wavy and slightly float towards one side of your face.
18. SHORT BOB HAIRCUT WITH BANGS
If you have short hair, bobs can be a difficult task. However, there are many ways to make your bangs look good. For a unique look, if you have a large forehead, the bangs should be cut just above your eyebrows. This look is retro and vintage, and it looks great with sunglasses. Make sure you have straight eyebrows.
19. MESSY, LAYERED CUTS + BALAYAGE HIGHLIGHTS
For messy, layered cuts like this one, ombre highlights and baalayage are the perfect complement. If you have short hair, it can be difficult to experiment with colors and shades. But with the right combination of colours like these caramel and blonde waves, you will have a beautiful look in no time.
20. CURLY, SHORT RUNETTE BOOB
This look is very vintage-glam with the big red lips and side-swept curls. Once you have mastered the art of curling, it takes very little time to achieve a look like that. This look is best achieved with a wand rather than using tongs. Once you have your hair styled, and the side parted in place, take sections of your hair and curl them in any direction and angle. Don’t try to make the waves look identical.
21. STRAIGHT, ALINE BOB
This sleek and elegant cut exudes style and class. We can see why the A-line Bob haircut is so popular.
22. INVERTED BOB HAIRCUT
A heart-shaped face will have a narrower chin than the rest of your face. This makes it difficult to wear shorter hairstyles. This can be overcome by a longer bob and some face-framing layers underneath the chin. You could also try this look – an inverted bob. The longer layers at the front make it easier to wear and are less harsh on the skin. This is one of many ways you can keep your hair short.
23. BOUNCY, BLONDE BOB
Charlize Theron wore a bob that looked very similar to this recently. It was a beautiful, icy blonde, bouncy bob with layers to add volume and lighter highlights to add dimension. This bob is perfect for thin hair. It adds volume and texture. This look is easy to achieve with a few heated rollers and a hair dryer. Everyone knows that shorter hair is easier on a daily basis.
24. CURLY, LAYERED BOOB CUT
You can opt for a longer bob if you aren’t sure if you want to take the plunge and have your long hair cut. The lob (or long bob) is approximately shoulder-skimming in length. It is flattering for many women and helps to add weight.
25. The PERFECT BOB CUT FOR THIN HAIR
This bob is ideal for thin hair because it makes it appear thicker. Layers, length and subtle highlights can all be combined to create a three-dimensional look. This is what you need if you have short and flaky hair.
26. CHOPPY CUT + BLONDE HEADLIGHTS
This choppy bob with blonde highlights looks more funky and adventurous than its sleeker counterparts. We love how different tones of caramel highlights and ash blonde have been used, adding depth to the look. This is seriously cool, and we love it. It allows you to have a bob haircut but still has a color edge.
27. CUTE BOB HAIRCUT
This cute bob haircut is a quick and easy way to style your bob. Just flip it over and use a little hairspray for hold. This makes it easy to style your short bob without thinking.
28. SHORT AND VOLUMINOUS CUT
This one is a great example of super short hair. This volume prevents it from looking too severe or intense, but this is really short hair. A great way to revive your hair is to give it a good haircut. Do you think it’s time to ask your hairdresser if this is something they can do?
29. MESSY, TEXTURED BOB CUT
You should try the messy, textured look if you have an already asymmetrically cut hairstyle. With the right knowledge, it’s easy… To give your hair volume, apply mousse to damp hair. Then blow-dry upside-down to add some texture and volume to the roots. Add some random ringlets to your hair with the curling iron, and then pull it out with your fingers. You can then mix it all together with your fingers. If you need more volume, you can add some backcombing to the roots. This is a great hairstyle that requires very little effort.
