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.
