Super Cute Layered Bob Hairstyles

Layered bob hairstyles flatter every face shape, work well for all hair textures, and look sensational, be it with athleisure wear, jeans, and even with a sparkling, full-length gown.

A bob haircut has been around for nearly a century. As with all fashion trends, it adapted along with the needs and tastes of the changing times. Almost every woman has had one. Today’s bobs are sophisticated and chic and are designed to work precisely for the woman’s hair type and style preferences.

With a standard bob, a hairstylist cuts the hair straight across the head, usually at a chin level, and creates bangs, also straight across. A bob is easy to style. That is why it’s withstood time. There are several variations. A bob with layers modifies the standard form, with layers, of course, but also with various angles, which provide distinctive shapes and movement. It works for every type of hair, even thick, curly hair (the graduated layers help maintain a flattering shape). And, with so many color choices and techniques, you can easily create a one-of-a-kind look.

If you decide to get a bob with layers, you should think about your beauty routine and desires (such is important with any hairstyle, really). Do you mind spending a lot of time on your hair? Do you blow dry? Use heat styling tools? Or, do you loathe the thought? Whatever you decide, it’s not a problem, a bob with layers offers a wide range of options.

Generally, longer bobs work well for oval and round faces, shorter bobs for triangular and oblong faces.

1. Wavy Bob

This chin-length blunt wavy bob is both sexy and elegant. It looks great with a dynamic color such as a radiant red or platinum blonde. And some balayage tones can add texture and warmth.

If your hair is naturally curly or wavy, all you have to do is simply add your favorite scrunching product and blow dry with a diffuser. However, if you have straight hair, you should make a slightly off-center part and blow-dry with your fingers. Then use a larger curling iron to curl your hair in sections. Next, use your fingers to gently break up the waves. Finally, use a flat iron to flick out the bottom pieces and create a flip. Finish with a medium hold spray to create movement.

23. Messy Layered Lob

Messy layered bob hairstyles are worth everyone’s attention. It doesn’t matter if you strive for volume with your weak and thin locks or you desire your thick chevelure behave and become softer. Messy styling is the salvation for all girls!

If you want your medium bob to work on your thin hair, your hairstylist will add some feathers, which is an edgy version of layers that makes your ends more precise. In this way, your weak locks will show up in a new light. To maintain the messy look, spritz your hair with salt sprays every time you style it.

When working with thick hair, layers are also full of good surprises. Even though they change the thickness of your chevelure, they don’t cause it to fall flat. On the contrary, this technique gets the most out of your texture and makes your hair more manageable. For your hair type, salt sprays are the crucial messy weapon, too.
