A little French bob like this would suit chic and classy girls who would never leave the house without a sexy eyeliner and lip work. Yet it only takes less hair to make this haircut work, the volume the texture offers is really impressive.

Jaw-Length Short Bob for Fine Hair

Instagram @sarabotsfordhair

This jaw-length bob is based on a strong geometric and disciplined shape, but with layers providing texture and movement.

The strength in the perimeter line accentuates the jawline, while the layers sit at the cheekbone level to create interest and to keep the shape from looking too solid and heavy.

Use some R&Co Chiffon light mousse before drying to add strength. Also, some R&Co Control paste to bring out the layers and give the finished look.

Jagged Bob for Round Faces

In this flawless jet black, short bob with bangs, the ends are waved inward for a face-frame effect. That cute choppy fringe enhances the look even more by adding texture and interest.

Q&A with style creator, Corinna Hernandez
Stylist @ Pony Salon in San Francisco, CA

How would you describe this look?

This is a razor-cut mid-neck length bob with graduation. This girl has bangs that suit her face – shorter and more textured. This cut was not blow dried with a brush but with a diffuser and surf spray to encourage natural movement and texture. This color is her natural color – almost black!

Any advice for someone considering it?

This is a great look for someone who likes wearing shorter hair with little to loose waves and wants to just let it air dry with some surf spray.

Fun Choppy Bob with a Deep Side Part

Q&A with style creator, Renee W Owens
Owner/Stylist/Redken Color Specialist @ Sunshine Hair Designs in Tarboro, NC

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This choppy short bob cut that’s textured and angled is one of my favorite styles. It’s so versatile and can go from straight and sleek to tousled and textured like it’s shown in the picture. This is such a fun, flirty bob with a deep side part that is easy to duplicate at home.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

For this look, I applied Kenra Body Boosting Spray Foam and Kenra Blowdry Spray for volume and shine, then curled with a 1-inch iron, leaving the ends straight for a more textured look.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This short choppy bob cut and style works well for most face shapes and can be styled so easily at home, making it a good choice for almost everyone.

Sassy A-Line Bob

Q&A with style creator, Sierra English
Hairstylist @ Sierra English Hair in Venice, CA

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is sassy, yet more playful than your traditional short A-line bob. The perimeter is textured instead of blunt, and the interior is sliced through in order to remove excess weight. My favorite aspect of this look is the fact that it is really low maintenance, yet has a ton of style.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

To maintain this look, I recommend applying Kevin Murphy Body Mass spray all over wet hair. This style can be air dried or rough dried with a blow dryer. Finishing touches can be made with a large barrel curling iron, although this step is not necessary. To finish, apply Kevin Murphy Doo Over for a fresh and undone look that will hold throughout the day.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I would recommend this cut for the low maintenance client who also appreciates style and a quality grow out. This cut is great for naturally wavy hair and small and/or oval face shapes.

Asymmetrical Bob

Q&A with style creator, Kaitlyn McHarg
Hairstylist @ Eliane Hair & Spa in Vancouver, BC

How would you describe this look?

This short asymmetrical bob is an updated version of one of the most classic short bobs of all time.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This bob haircut can be tailored in so many ways to suit different hairs. Depending on the face width, you can either draw attention or defer attention depending on the length you go with. You can also play around with layers and texture to either make the hair fuller and blunter or take out the weight and add some layers or face framing.

A Very Short Layered Bob

Q&A with style creator, Audrey Ragan
Hairstylist @ Lunatic Fringe Salon in Franklin, TN

How would you describe this look?

This very short, layered bob haircut is a classic shape modernized by a strong, chippy fringe. The perimeter mimics the jawline, which helps maintain balance and visual appeal.

Any advice for someone considering it?

The strong fringe works well for oval, diamond and oblong face shapes or to minimize a prominent forehead. It’s ideal for straight to wavy hair that’s fine, medium or coarse.

To style, apply a smoothing serum (like Kerastase Oleo-Relax or Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum) and a cream gel (like Bumble and Bumble Styling Creme or Kerastase Forme Fatale). Finish with a touch of styling paste or clay (like Bumble and Bumble Thickening Creme Contour or SumoClay) for soft definition and texture in the perimeter and fringe.

Edgy, Face Framing Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Chelle Johnson
Apprentice @ Level Workshop in Dallas, TX

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is 50% classic, 50% edgy. I love that the micro bangs can be sweet or badass, depending on how you style them. Playing with shorter bangs is a fun, low commitment way to change up your look because if you get tired of them, they grow out in a couple weeks anyway!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I used R+Co’s Mannequin for separation and grit. I love the flyaway look to the layers. It’s a pliable product, so the look changes as she touches her hair throughout the day.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This shorter bob is great for someone who likes to change up her look and doesn’t mind styling her hair daily.

Permed Bob

Unquestionably one of the looks everyone loves, the wispy bob haircut for short hair is a lighter cut that’s good for ladies with thick hair who don’t want too much bulk. You can opt for long wispy bangs as well if you wanna put attention to your eyes and pretty face.

Bob for a Chubby Face

Instagram @franzimakepretty

Short bob cuts require a short hair expert to determine the right cut and length for rounder faces. Those who want their faces looking slim and fresh would definitely love this look! Notice how it starts in a center part, straightened down just beside the jawline for an elongating effect, and then finished with waved ends for a touch of elegance.

Short Straight Bob

short straight bob

Instagram @fabrizio_coloristas

This short bob hair is classic, chic, and cool and never goes out of style. A straight bob suits many face shapes, and the only thing you have to consider is what length will go with your face shape. The goal here is to create the appearance of having an oval shape.

When it comes to hair texture the most ideal candidate is a woman with straight hair and medium density since they don’t have to spend a lot of time trying to style their hair.

If you want the classic bob, know that this haircut is done with 0-degree elevation to create the shape. Or you can either opt for an A-line bob or square bob instead.

Perfect Shaggy Bob for Thin Hair

Shaggy is the best and easiest way to go to make your thin fine hair appear thicker and full of volume. Work with layers that are wavy towards the end for a charming outcome.

Q&A with style creator, Mica Popovich
Senior Stylist @ Edo Salon in San Francisco, CA

How would you describe this look?

I like to think of this cut as a shaggy bob. It’s cut with a straight razor with lots of weight removed. A soft, natural, and modern version of a classic cut.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This is a great short shaggy bob cut for anyone looking for a new style. I think bobs work on everybody and the loose, playful layers add a flirty, casual feel that can work on most face shapes.

I used a salt spray to give it texture and a creamy paste to detail all the little bits and pieces.

This was also styled using just my hands and a blow dryer. It’s very easy and fast to style.

Blonde Undercut Bob

Q&A with style creator, Catherine Nye
Hairstylist @ Scripps Hair and Skin Gallery in San Diego, CA

How would you describe this look?

This is an undercut bob with foil highlights. I love the peekaboo effect of the undercut at the sides. The brightness of the highlights accentuates the buzzed hair underneath. It’s a bit edgy but also cute and versatile.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This is a perfect style for a client with “too much hair.” The undercut bob removes the bulky look of thick hair. It’s great for the summer heat because it keeps hair off the neck.

As with any shorter bobs, it requires a bit of styling if the client has textured hair.

As for the color, foil highlights are great when you want a strong pop of blonde to frame the face. The heat from the foils allows for a brighter blonde using a gentler lightener.

Naturally Curly Bob

Q&A with style creator, Lauren Kieninger
Co-owner & Stylist @ Barbara & Barbara in Chicago, IL

How would you describe this look?

This is a very layered, short angled bob. It is shorter in the back and slightly longer in the front, but also has a lot of smaller shorter layers to break up the heaviness that can form on the base of the cut. This helps to avoid the ‘triangle’ shape. This client has a lot of hair. We did an undercut to take out some of the extra bulk which helps maintain the shape for long, and because it’s fun!

Any advice for someone considering it?

I feel that this curly bob style is actually relatively low maintenance. Because of the layers and angle, it can hold its shape for 2-3 months.

Angled short bob hairstyles look great on most face-shapes, so it’s more about the smaller tweaks of the cut that gives it a specially tailored look. Some examples are the undercut or the bangs.

To keep up the shape daily, she uses DevaCurl Volumizing Foam followed with either a curl gel or cream depending on the season and what her hair needs. During the warm months, she uses DevaCurl Ultra-Gel and during the cold months, she uses DevaCurl Supercream. She usually lets it air-dry and sometimes follows up with her diffuser on low for about 5 mins to give it some extra volume.

Short Feathered Bob Crop

Q&A with style creator, Ariel Edens
Hairstylist @ Ariel Edens Hair Studio in Pittsburgh, PA

How would you describe this look?

This feathered bob is a short stacked bob that’s angled. What you may or may not be able to tell is the front has no bangs or face-framing layers. It’s all one length around her face.

My favorite thing about this short crop is how versatile it is. It can truly be altered to fit your face shape, lifestyle, or personal preference.

Any advice for someone considering it?

If you have any texture then it’s going to take a product and at least 20 minutes of blow drying and round-brushing to get it to lay this smooth.

This short hair cut also looks great curly so with the right product, a girl with curly hair could let her hair air dry and it would be really cute.

Textured & Layered Graduated Bob

Q&A with style creator, Kaitlin Butler
Educator @ Bellus Academy in Poway / Stylist @ theFactory in San Diego, CA

How would you describe this look?

It’s a short graduated bob with short layers and bangs. For the photo, I brushed the layers forward to fall over the bangs and gave it a messy look. The way my model Savannah wears her short locks is completely different from the way I styled it. She curls her hair, sometimes wears a side part, sometimes just pushes everything back away from her face. It works in any way she wants to style it.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Almost anyone can wear this short bob cut! The products you use and styling all depend on your hair texture and type. This cut looks amazing on curly and wavy hair types too.

Stacked Swing Bob

Q&A with style creator, Alisha McAlister
Hair Stylist / Colorist @ The Cuttaway Styling Salon in Joplin, MO

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This is a classy, stacked swing bob. I like this style on her because it looks gorgeous smoothed out, with soft curls, or with her natural curls. This cut is versatile and gives my client a classy yet sassy style.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I use Kenra Blow Dry Spray to prep the hair because it adds shine, serves as a heat protectant, smells amazing (like the beach), and works perfectly as a humidity blocker. I also use Monat Restore Leave-In Conditioner, Monat Restyle Instant Sculpting Taffy, and Monat Refinish Control Hairspray. The Taffy is what I used to smooth flyaways and give her more texture/piecey curls.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this type of style for any client that has thick hair and someone that may not like to shampoo often This look gives them the option to wear it with natural curls, smooth it and volumize the next day, then do soft beachy curls (as in the picture) with their flat iron.

I wouldn’t recommend this haircut to those with fine or thin hair because they lack the thickness to make this stacked look. For fine/thin hair, I’d recommend a long bob (Lob)with long layers.

Short to Medium Bob

Q&A with style creator, Kayla Daninger
Designer @ Cole’s Salon in Apple Valley, MN

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as chic, sophisticated and fun. People want to add texture to their hair because it adds interest to the style, but they also want to feel like they still have a lot of hair. I love that this style creates a fuller look on any type of hair while still keeping flowing layers and movement!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

For this hairstyle, I love using Bumble and Bumble Thickening spray and All Style cream before blow drying to add volume. When the hair is dry, I finish with Oribe Dry Texture spray to give the hair a tousled, textured, lived-in look.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This style is great for those who have fine hair (but a lot of it) and have a hard time getting volume. This style can be a wash and wear look if you have very curly hair because it will give the curls a lot more bounce. Straight hair is going to require a little bit of effort! I believe any face shape and any age can pull off this look. Rounder faces should have the front come below their chin, while heart shaped and square faces should have the front right at the chin. The ideal clients for this haircut are those who have a little time in the morning to style their hair. It is a great look for those in the professional world that want a style they can have fun with!

Vintage Bob with Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Candyce DeMarc
Owner / Barber @ Pioneer Barber Company in Seattle, WA

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

When I look at her haircut it makes me think of a mix of a vintage bob such as the likes of Louis Brooks with its defined lines, retro-inspired bangs and blunt cut with the sophistication and elegance of a young Isabella Rossellini. The slightly textured ends give it a slightly modern feel while the angle of the cut being shorter in the front and curved in the back give it that fun flapper vibe.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

The type of products I recommend for this style would be mousse and texture spray to keep it from getting to soft and flat, lots of hairspray to hold the style in place and a pinch of silkening serum on the ends. I also love to put hair powder on everything!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I really like this short hair style for vintage girls, women and girls of any age especially beautiful on someone with a rounder face, softer features and/or a long neck to really capture the vintage feel of this style. It can be worn with minimal to no makeup and hairstyling for a french feel or styled and paired with makeup, bold lips and a barrette or headband for a night out.

Graduated Angled Bob

Q&A with style creator, Tiffany Shuck
Hairstylist @ VAIN in Seattle, WA

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This is a graduated angled bob. The back is cut to the hairline and the front reaches almost mid-neck when the hair is straight or wet. I love the clean precise line that the back creates and the texture that is shown as the hair curls.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

If you have fine hair, I recommend using Deva Curl B’Leave-In and Ultra Defining Gel. If your hair is thicker, I would recommend using R+Co Twister and Aircraft.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

Any hair type can have this short bob cut. You just have to take into consideration that if your hair is fine and straight, then you won’t see the shape as well as someone with curly hair. This haircut can be very slimming and works well with almost every face shape, especially someone with a more rounded face.

Modern Swing Bob with Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Alexis Schlegel
Hairstylist @ Willow Salon and Spa in Tacoma, WA

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as being very roaring 1920s-inspired bob, but with a modern flair. It’s very artsy and fun. My favorite thing about it is the easy styling and upkeep, and the edginess of the disconnected framing in the front.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

To create this short hairstyle, I recommend a small round brush to give shape to the bevel of the bob and the bangs, as well as some Kevin Murphy Anti Gravity spray for volume. For shine, I used the L’Oréal Shower Shine finishing spray. If you want a more textured look, you can use Kevin Murphy Freehold Cream.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I would recommend shorter bobs with bangs to anyone who has thicker hair and loves to wear their hair down, as well as someone who enjoys their face being more framed.

Cute Round Bob for Women Over 60

Q&A with style creator, Aimee Frett
Hairstylist @ Salon Ambre in Temecula, CA

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I love how this short bob cut works so well for women over 60! It looks great hugging right around that jawline, or even grazing the shoulders. There’s not a ton of layering to deal, with so styling is super simple with a quick blow dry and maybe a touch up with a flat iron. It has the perfect amount of texture through the ends to keep it soft and have movement.

This style even looks great paired with a fringe. It has that perfectly polished look for any classic woman, plus the versatility for the more adventurous! By simply adding a texture spray like Eufora Full Effect, you can give it more body and texture. Or, take a curling wand and put in a beach wave and finish with Eufora Style Details Dry Spray Wax.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

On towel dried hair, I used a cocktail of Eufora Sculpture Styling Glaze and Illuminate Shine Mist for control and light hold. I then dried the hair with a round brush and used Eufora Pure Polish to leave a sleek finish.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This cut is great for anyone who likes short to medium length hair. It can work with any face shape just by altering length, angle and fringe. It can take away bulk for those with thick and unruly locks and add the appearance of thickness for those with fine and limp strands.

Trendy Messy Bob

Instagram @stebunovhair

This short style is very popular among women of every age and is very trendy. The reason hairdressers and clients both love this haircut is because of its various suitability and practicality.

The natural, short messy haircut which characterizes the present short bob hairstyles trend makes it easy to wear and maintain. This cut can also be adapted to any face type by altering the length and cutting technique. 80% of its charm stays in the styling though!

Textured Blunt Bob With Bangs for Women Over 50

Textured blunt bob with bangs for women over 50

Instagram @wilderness_vikki

The sharp and blunt effect of this bob makes a person look twice. My favorite thing about this short bob style for women over 50 is that when you have a blunt bob, you feel on top of the world! It can swing and flow as you walk, really showing your confidence.

To style: on wet hair, use a leave-in conditioner and heat protectant spray. After drying, use a hairspray and a spray wax. Evo is a great brand because each product does what it’s meant to do.

I recommend this look for women with fine hair to make it look a lot thicker. This cut can also look amazing with thick hair as it can be softened to style well and work with the cut.

Natural Graduated Cut

Q&A with style creator, Tiffany Perils
Hairstylist @ Rocco Altobelli in Roseville, MN

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is a natural graduated bob with a neutral push on the sides. The short strands are versatile for styling. My favorite thing about it is you can round brush, curl, wave, or straighten the look.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

When the hair is wet, I apply a medium hold spray gel. I love Rocco Altobellis spray gel because it has a heat protectant in it called rhatany root. It also adds body, volume and shine and it is fast drying. Round brush the hair and style with any heat tool desired. Finish with Redken’s Wind Blown 5 dry finishing spray. This creates a matte finish with an undone, dry textured look.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is great for someone looking for a fun, spunky, youthful and versatile haircut. All hair types can rock this look.

Modern Bob With Fringe

modern bob with fringe

Instagram @nicky_mckenzie_hair

This look is so modern. It is easy and effortless, making it perfect for the girl who doesn’t want to fuss too much and still look “done”. The bangs make all the difference! They give the haircut an edge that isn’t a huge commitment.

It may not look like it, but there was a ton of texturizing involved in creating this haircut. Whether it’s messy or smoothed out, it still looks great. Who would’ve thought a simple, textured, one-length bob with bangs could be so chic?

If your hair is naturally straight or doesn’t have too much texture, try Kerastase Fluidissime Thermal Anti Frizz Protection Spray or Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother. Both products are light, but powerful.

If you have thick hair that needs hold and style, use Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Nourishing Styling Creme or the Creme de la Creme blow-dry cream by Kerastase.

The beauty of a short bob with bangs is that you can personalize it to anyone. As with any short haircut, there’s a certain level of commitment.

Short to Long Sophistication

Q&A with style creator, Perri Lujan
Hairstylist @ Victor Paul Salon in Costa Mesa, CA

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I love this short bob haircut because it is so versatile. It’s sexy, yet playful! It can have a sophisticated look for work by blow drying it straight, or you can throw some curls in it and piece it out for some texture. It’s a quick and low maintenance.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

Before I blow dry a look like this, I like to apply Oribe Imperial Blowout from roots to ends and Oribe Maximista throughout. After blow drying, I flat iron and finish with Brazilian Blowout Dry Oil. If curling, I use a 1 1/4-inch curling iron and finish with Oribe Aprés Beach.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I would recommend this for a client who are looking for quick and easy short styles. It is perfect for someone who leads a busy and active lifestyle. Hair that is fine to medium thickness would work best with this style.

Razor Cut with Highlights

Q&A with style creator, Brooke Schwartz
Hairstylist @ Mad One Jacks Salon in Hoboken, NJ

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as a short, edgy and effortless razor cut bob! It is one of my favorite short bob styles to create. What I love about this cut most of all is how easy the client can maintain this look. This haircut grows out perfectly and can be easily styled within minutes!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

Products play an important role with this style! I love to use Paul Mitchell’s HydroCreamWhip before my blow dry to ensure that the hair is smooth but still has touchable volume. Another option I recommend is a texture cream by Paul Mitchell called Reworks.

I use my fingers or paddle brush to dry the hair. Once the hair is dry, a sea salt spray can be added for an extra beach-like finish. This can be used straight or after running a curling iron through the hair. Finish off with a shine spray or light finishing spray and you’re set!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This style is perfect for the client who does little or no styling at all. It’s great on the go style and is a tad edgier than the classic Vidal Sassoon bob. Face shape plays an important role when deciding the length, especially in front. A more narrow face shape is ideal, but for someone more round, leave more length so it doesn’t cup the client’s chin and can elongate the face.

This look is great for a more active client because it will look done but not too polished. This will fit a client who doesn’t necessarily have a corporate job.

One Length Short Blonde Bob

Q&A with style creator, Janelle Parsons
Creative Director and Salon Owner @ Meek HD pty ltd in Coolum Beach, Queensland, Australia 4573

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This strong, baseline-style cut is a solid short blonde bob that creates an intensity of the blonde color work. My favorite thing about this look is the brightness of the clean blonde and the solid baseline

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

As I am a Redken ambassador salon, I use all Redken styling and color professional ranges to maintain this look. I recommend Redken Extreme shampoo and conditioner, as well as Blonde Idol violet treatment. For styling, I recommend Aerate 08 and Fashion Work 12 hairspray.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

The perfect client for this look has a heart, diamond or round face shape. It is best suited for fine to medium hair types. The versatility of this style and cut allows the look to suit every lifestyle from day to night, how ver the maintenance of the blonde on short hair is a commitment and would need toners and re-coloring every four to six weeks.

Layered and Textured Bob

Q&A with style creator, Sara Kunkel
Cosmetologist & Nail Tech @ Flawless finish by Sara in Tamaqua, PA

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This is a layered textured bob. My favorite thing about it is the nice, swingy, natural movement it gets.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I recommend any dry texturizing product like the new Kenra Air Grip Spray to build volume and amp up the texture to show off the movement in the hair.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this cut for thick to medium textured hair!

Sassy Wavy Bob

A sassy short wavy bob haircut

Instagram @rachel_anythinghair

Q&A with style creator, Rachel Dykstra
Hairstylist @ Launch Salon in Grand Rapids, MI

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

The best way I can think of to describe this sassy, short wavy bob! My favorite thing about this haircut is that it frames her face in all the right places. Sometimes taking that leap of faith and cutting your hair into a bob can be the best choice you’ve ever made!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I am a John Paul Mitchell Systems girl through and through, so the products that I recommend will always be in that product line!

While the hair is still wet I would use Rare Oil Style Perfecting Serum. It conditions, adds shine, and helps maintain the style all day.

As a heat protectant on dry hair, I would use Hot off the Press. As a hairspray, I would use Marula Rare Oil Perfecting Hairspray because it is humidity resistant and super workable. For added texture, I would use Paul Mitchell Neon Sugar Spray.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

What I love MOST about this wavy bob cut is that it is flattering on many of my clients! When someone has long thick hair, this haircut allows me to remove so much weight while also creating body and movement.

When someone has very thin hair, cutting their hair to this length can create the illusion of thick hair. It also adds layers and volume a thin-haired client never thought they could have or achieve themselves!

This cut is great for those of you who feel like you are stuck in a rut and want to “do” your hair more! Think less everyday ponytail and bit more everyday curl and sass. Shorter hair = less time spent curling!

Jet Black Chin Length Sleek Bob

Q&A with style creator, Sara Praefke
Stylist / ALKAmist @ Alkali Salon in Santa Ana, CA

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this cut as mod and contemporary. My favorite thing about this cut is the clean lines. I always like my bobs to have a good foundation, and I like to know that my guest’s hair will lay perfectly when they wear it straight.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

The products I used for this look where from the brand SEVEN Haircare. I used a product called Seal which is an equalizer to help equalize the ph and keep the moisture content high. I also used the Diamond styling oil to add shine and help with the sleek look. The last product I recommend would be a heat defense to help make sure your hair is protected against any heat tools.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend short bob haircuts like this for someone with medium and fine textured hair. This look also looks great on someone who has straight hair. It’s best for someone who doesn’t want to spend a lot of time on their day to day hairstyling.

The main thing you have to do with this cut is either go throughout and straighten it or even put a little wave in it to give it more of a messy look, but nothing that will really take anyone more than 10 minutes to do every day.

Sleek Blunt Bob

Sleek short blunt bob haircut

Timeless short bobs have many variations and can work on every hair type out there which is my favorite part of this cut.

This haircut is blunt, cropped quite short, is very clean with a sleek look, and has a natural, light honey, dimensional color.

To style, use a round brushed the hair to add a little bit of body but kept in mind to keep it relatively straight while doing so. This cut can be worn with any texture. It also looks great waved with volume or scrunched with natural curls.

The short, blunt perimeter widens the lower half of the face, so if you’re concerned in that department, this look might not be the most flattering.

Texturized Tousled Hair

Q&A with style creator, Michaela O’Keefe
Board Certified Hair Colorist / Balayage Specialist / Blonde Specialist @ Revive Salon & Spa in San Diego, CA

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This is a texturized, short bob cut with a lower maintenance highlight.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

To maintain my client’s hair, I use Boosta Spray and Elevate Mousse by Unite. We also prepped with 7 Seconds by Unite. The 7 Seconds conditions the hair and maintains the shine in her blonde. She has a finer texture, so Elevate Mousse gives her hair the extra grit little to be able to hold a curl and Boosta is used for added volume.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This hairstyle can be customized for anyone. Changing up the products would make this style work for women with thick hair or more fine hair.

Sassy Angled Blonde Bob

A sassy angled blonde bob with its subtle layers to boost the volume and glow of your tresses! Short angled bobs, which are usually neck-length, look more dynamic than other cuts. Highlights and lowlights can even create a dimension for a total sun-kissed effect. If you’re a gal who wants minimal styling only, short bob haircuts like this one are your thing!

Q&A with style creator, Trudy Reulet
Hair Stylist @ Lacoste Hair Designs in Covington, LA

How would you describe this look?

I always enjoy getting to create dimensional looks like this one. Highlights are so beautiful especially when adding in the perfect lowlight to make the blonde pop that much more.

For this client’s hair, I chose Redken shades EQ gloss for the perfect golden yet still cool blonde tone. Plus, it adds so much extra shine to the hair (who doesn’t love extra shine)!

I have always loved this cut for how versatile it can be. Whether you are looking for something stylish, professional, or even fun and sassy, this graduated bob is perfect for so many looks.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This hairstyle is perfect for someone who has fine/medium hair. Adding layers to this bob will give the illusion of it being thicker. For this style, I would say products are key! A product that I would recommend to use for this style is Redken’s Full Frame. I love this mousse because it gives the hair extra volume. If you are considering this look, I say go for it! It’s definitely a fun look!

Ombre Piecey Bob

Q&A with style creator, Paige Leible
Hair Stylist & Colorist @ Beautique in Lees Summit, MO

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

With this bob haircut on short hair, I balayaged her ends and kept her base natural so she doesn’t have to worry about roots! My favorite thing about this look is that it is so low maintenance.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

Bedroom.Hair by Kevin Murphy is a product I’m obsessed with right now. It’s a textured hairspray so it helps give lift and grit to the hair to hold the beachy loose waves in place! I topped this look off with Kevin Murphy Shine Spray.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is perfect for someone who wants something with easy upkeep! Most balayage clients can go 6-12 months before they need a touch up.


51 Bob Haircut Ideas to Try in 2021

While certain hair trends come and go, there's one look that will never go out of style: a bob haircut. While the cropped cut might be intimidating, it's a classic for a reason. Going chin-length is immediately attention-grabbing and puts all the focus on your face; plus, it's just way less hair to deal with.

According to celebrity hairstylist Alex Brown, blunt chin-length bobs are especially having a moment right now (think Rosamund Pike's immaculate sharp bob in I Care a Lot), but there are plenty of variations to choose from depending on your hair type and comfort level. Whether you go with a choppy, textured style or a blunt cut, short hair manages to look both modern and classic—and forever cool. We rounded up some of our favorite bob hairstyles (and a few lobs, if you're still not quite ready to go chin-length) to screenshot for your stylist. Scroll on for all the bob haircut inspiration you need.

60 Best Short Bob Haircuts and Hairstyles for Women

Short bobs have been popular in some form for decades, but the modern bobs are truly unique in their versatility and edgier style. Incorporating color, shape and dimension, short bobs can be worn by any woman looking to try something new.

Short Bob Hairstyles

The following shorter bobs are truly unique. It’s not a challenge for a contemporary woman to look individually with a short haircut anymore. See for yourself.

#1: Messy Blonde Bob with Lowlights

The short bob hairstyles of today are not what they were yesterday. The trendy blonde is no longer one, solid tone, it’s transformed into a light ash blonde color with lowlights. Accordingly, a bob is no longer just a bob, it is a messy, graduated bob with air within the strands, and it looks quite fabulous!

#2: Tousled Blonde Bob

Keeping the ends of your cut uneven with shorter blunt edges and longer choppy strands makes for a cool cut full of personality. A perfect way to style it is in a laidback, tousled ‘do. Achieve by staying away from heat tools, while staying true to natural hair texture and using bedhead styling sprays.

#3: Rounded Bob with Straight Across Nape

The well-blended highlights and smoothly textured locks give a neat shape to this rounded bob. Slightly tapered layers point to the straight cut nape and create the typical bobbed fullness and volume the cut is known for.

#4: Short Wispy White Blonde Bob

Long peek-a-boo bangs and flyaways are the hallmarks of short bob hairstyles aiming for a contemporary and urban edge. The wispy white-blonde hair is a bit poofy on top, and the side pieces are razored and slightly longer around the jawline.

#5: Inverted Razored Bob for Straight Hair

An inverted bob is a perfect style for a woman seeking to create a new and flattering shape for her thick, straight hair. The stacked back and the tousled top look fantastic with a side part, and the dark roots underneath the caramel-chocolate color add to the depth and fullness of the style.

#6: Inverted Gray Balayage Bob with Overlapping Layers

When you are seeking an elegant and stylish bob, look no further than an inverted style with overlapping layers. With an undercut for the nape section you may make the angle even more extreme. The gray and bright silver-toned balayage adds an extra flair that keeps the haircut modern and youthful.

#7: Piece-y Rose Gold Bob

The best way to show off the metallic rose-gold bob is to cut it into short choppy layers throughout. The extra height in the crown and the evenly layered ends add a feminine touch. The piece-y, textured locks and the tapered shape help to complete the elegant silhouette of this unique hairstyle.

#8: Short Concave Bob

Classic short bobs look great on most women and are an excellent way to bring extra fullness and body to fine hair that tends to lack volume. The evenly cut ends are perfectly aligned, and a few textured locks add even more to the flouncy roundness.

#9: Short Beachy Angled Bob

This platinum blonde mane with dark roots is smoothly styled with soft beach waves transforming a casual angled bob into an absolute creation of sexy summer glamour. It looks so alluring, it’s almost like she was born with it. Almost.

#10: Burgundy Bob with Orangey Highlights

Bob haircuts for women let us experiment with colors and textures, while our hair is short, but not awkward-short; it’s trendy and nice-looking! Pair burgundy and caramel, golden blonde and silver, or whatever striking combination comes to your mind; with shorter hair it’s much easier to pull off bolder colors and the potential damage is not so significant.

#11: Rounded Jaw-Length Honey Blonde Bob

A deep side part with long peek-a-boo bangs is the latest way to wear a jaw-length bob. The honey blonde hair is pushed gently forward, creating face framing that is flattering and slimming. Wispy flyaways and chunky tapered ends complete the feminine hairstyle.

#12: Rounded Brunette Bob with Voluminous Layers

Bobs are fabulous for women of all ages because they give off a classy yet youthful aesthetic. Particularly striking in deeper, dark colors, you can never go wrong with a uni-length solid colored hairdo. Layers help to lift up roots and add tons of volume.

#13: Sassy Feathered Blonde Bob

Feathering is the wisest strategy for fine hair. Razor cutting methods for bob styles blend tips of strands together while adding necessary texture and volume. The concave, swoopy styling complements this haircut best.

#14: Short Blonde Bob Blowout

A bob blowout can do wonders for women with fine hair that tends to lie flat. Wispy, feathered bangs and a rounded shape also add volume and depth. The almost white highlights give the hairstyle a summery, windblown appearance. The tapered ends dip underneath the chin slimming down the face and showing off the long neck.

#15: Cropped Bob with Bangs and Shaggy Layers

The classy rosewood cropped bob with bangs oozes 1920s vibes, yet looks modern thanks to its color and texture. The auburn color with pastel pink highlights is vibrant and metropolitan, and the shaggy layers accent the cheekbones. Fun and flirty at its best!

#16: Short Golden Blonde A-Line Bob

Short bob haircuts look superb whether parted in the middle or on the side. Barbra Streisand made the timeless “Helmut Bob” famous back in the 1960s. It never gets old! The dark roots and dark underside set off the gorgeous golden blonde tones of the elegant balayage that complements the classic A-line shape.

#17: Glossy Brown Inverted Bob

Medium brown is an underrated hair color. Undertones of this shade are neither warm nor ashy, but a happy medium. It’s quite natural, so your short bob cut will look especially healthy and thick when topped off with shine spray.

#18: Tapered Inverted Bob with Gray Babylights

The gray babylights of the sliced bob lend an air of sophistication to a standard short bob haircut. The long wispy bangs frame the face beautifully, and the slightly teased crown adds height and volume.

#19: Jaw-Length Stacked Bronde Bob

The poofy round shape looks so perfect on thick, straight hair. It’s a fashionable haircut that never goes out of style. Even women who don’t like posing for pictures will proudly show off the chic stacked layers in the back and honey bronde highlights throughout.

#20: Perfect Inverted Bob with Thin Highlights

Thin two-tone highlights are a delicate method to enhance any inverted short bob haircut. A sleek straight style is ideal if you want to present this cut and dye job in the best light, as it displays skilful stacking and detailed coloring flawlessly.

#21: Girly Wavy Chocolate and Blonde Bob

If you’re going for a two-tone ‘do, chocolate and blonde make a sweet pair. Loose waves are very rewarding for dimensional coloring. To amp up the drama factor, part your cut to one side.

#22: Short Bob Shag with Bangs

A straight and straggly shag is another creative way to style short bob hair. The wispy bangs and tousled layers frame the face beautifully, and the golden blonde balayage enhances your natural skin tones. The shaggy bob oozes youthful and sporty vibes.

#23: Dimensional Bob with Feathered Layers

Thanks to creative cuts and dye jobs, modern short bobs never look too plain or boring. With chunky V-cut layers, for instance, you can achieve a statement two-tiered look that will turn many heads.

#24: Short Razored Rounded Bob

Razor cutting has a distinct appearance that fuzzes ends of naturally straight hair. By doing this instead of going for typical cutting shears, ample texture is added. Rounded bobs are a classic choice, suiting any and every wardrobe.

#25: Short Feathered Bob with Neatly Trimmed Nape

The feathered layers of this extra short bob give the trim, neat haircut some youthful, girlish charm. It’s a style that looks fantastic as you are growing out your hair from a pixie cut. The squared-off nape catches the eye, and the overall shape of the cut is easy to maintain with a standard rounded brush.

#26: Cropped Choppy Brunette Bob

If you want a haircut that’s easy to style and maintain, it’s always best to use your natural assets. Wavy hair can be chopped into messy locks that frame the face and emphasize the cheekbones and chin. The straggly top and textured sides add extra volume and effortless feel to the modern wash and wear hairstyle.

#27: Undercut for Blonde Bob

Only the savviest stylists have the precision to master an undercut bob. An undercut manipulates the hair to fall naturally into a tucked under style. This technique is gorgeously displayed on straight blonde hair that can sometimes be difficult to keep in any style BUT straight.

#28: Jaw-Length Textured Bronde Bob

If you’re on the hunt for very short bob hairstyles that work exceptionally well on fine, stick-straight hair, look no further. This classic, jaw-length bronde bob has all the flattering texture you could ask for. A deep side part, wispy layers, and evenly cut ends bring out the best of your facial features.

#29: Short Rounded Feathered Bob

A mature woman who’s not sure how to style her extra-short hair should consider the rounded, feathered jaw-length bob with accurate edges. The sunny blonde balayage looks natural and healthy, and the tousled layers give it a casual appeal.

#30: Choppy Caramel Blonde Bob

A choppy bob with lots of blonde highlights over dark roots is a classic way to wear your short, wavy hair. It’s sporty, athletic, and youthful, and it works exceptionally well with thick, unruly hair. Part it on the side or in the middle, depending on which facial features you wish to emphasize.

#31: Shattered Black Bob with Purple Highlights

The shattered short bob makes an impactful statement when it combines razored ends and a poofy crown section. Add subtle purple highlights to the shiny thick hair to create an impressive signature hairstyle.

#32: Neat Layered Caramel Blonde Bob

A deep side part and feathery layers work together to create a rounded bob that flatters most face shapes. The ginger-blonde balayage gives a new twist to a generic blonde shade, adding a bright splash of color to the smooth sliced layers. The stacked back and wispy textures lend a soft, lighthearted flair.

#33: Stacked Bob with Blonde Highlights

Here’s a perfectly angled bob softened by a rounded back and subtle balayage. The extra highlights in the front section help frame the face and brighten the dishwater blonde base. Consider this upgrade if you like natural-looking hairstyles with a modern twist.

#34: One-Length Rounded Blonde Bob

The stacked short bob cut is a classic style that looks fabulous on most women: thick or fine hair, a side part or a center part, any shade from light blonde to jet black. Certainly, it works wonderfully for thick hair.

#35: Shaggy Chestnut Brown Bob for Straight Hair

Are you the type of lady who pictures herself wearing a center-parted straight bob? In case you like geometric looks, we’d like to recommend the style that’s versatile and can be worn either flat or tousled and fluffy. The dark brown base color has a reddish tint that will look as a brighter chestnut hue in the sun.

#36: Cropped Wavy Brunette Bob with Textured Layers

We just love the super short stacked layers at the back of this almost-black cropped bob. Scraggly waves cascade around the face and thick side pieces are carefully tucked behind the ears. The snazzy hairdo has a little bit of height and lots of movement.

#37: Short Choppy Dark Brown Bob

Very short bob hairstyles with a bit of height in the back work magnificently to elongate the neck. Soft waves can be achieved with big rollers, providing the texture and body that also help to lift and give a more voluminous shape to the hairstyle. Tuck a chunk of hair behind one ear and leave the other side loose to frame your face with chin-length bangs.

#38: Shaggy Piece-y Caramel Brown Bob

To style a bob hair cut quickly and easily, try out a wash-and-wear shaggy ‘do that’s super-easy to maintain. A bright caramel colored balayage over dark brown hair sets off this fashionable, urban style.

#39: Messy Blonde Bob with Thin Choppy Layers

There’s so much versatility in short bob haircuts; if you’re not into uni-length bobs or lobs, implement many short, choppy layers throughout. Not only do they bring a lot of movement but they also add body to finer hair.

#40: Chic Rounded Brown Balayage Bob

A short bob that is cut all-one-length is stylish and professional while still retaining ultra-feminine flair and pizazz. The sleek brunette haircut has an off-center part, and works best with hair that is fine, but can hold a slight curl.

#41: Layered Cinnamon and Caramel Bob

A cinnamon and caramel bob is a rustic combination sure to stand out in every season. Colorful for the summer, ideal for sweater weather in the autumn, vivacious for the dreary winter season and eye catching in the spring, don’t miss trying out this hairdo.

#42: Edgy Inverted Bob for Blondes

Avoid prim and proper styling with a shaggy bob cut and take advantage of a chic messy hairdo. Apply a texturizing product and rough dry really short layers at the back letting them settle as they would.

#43: Curly Brown and Caramel Bob

Want to shake things up a bit with your short hair? Bobs are ready to help. A shattered angled bob is a cool cut if you like to wear textured hairstyles with pizzazz.

#44: Asymmetrical Pixie Bob

One of the eccentric forms of short bob cuts is an asymmetrical choppy pixie bob that is a perfect fit for a fashionista on-the-go. When you go to the salon, it’s good to have at hand some pictures that depict the perfect degree of choppiness you want.

#45: A-Line Sleek Bob

The colorombre trend is optimal for those who are longing to add a funky shade to their short bob hairstyles. Those tiffany blue streaks on the smoothed gray bob scream chic and add dimension to the style.

#46: Voluminous Bob with Stacked Layers

It’s easy to look five years younger with a stacked bob cut. Here’s an excellent choice for working women in a professional environment. A steeply angled lob with plenty of layers can be dressed up and down depending on the occasion.

#47: Black Chopped Bob

Ladies who appreciate rock’n’roll or grunge aesthetics, this bob is for you. A dark solid color, slanted shape and choppy ends result in a hairstyle full of attitude, and you can easily make it yours.

#48: Neat Black and Chocolate Bob

Classy and neat never looked sweeter. A nice, simple bob is never a bad choice. Though this cut alone might seem a little traditional at first, the chocolate and black combination is a unique and fresh update.

#49: Bob Crop with Textured Layers

The reason that a cropped short bob is the cut of the moment is because women today love the elegance with a nonchalant tint it gives off. Textured layers are the route to attaining this particular style.

#50: Edgy Platinum Bob with Root Shadow

The high contrast look with very dark roots and platinum lengths is what truly makes the whole style striking and fashionable. You can take this bold color idea and adjust it to the cut of your preference.

#51: Choppy Stacked Bob

The choppy layers upgraded with a soft whimsical color make this pale purple bob hair style a delicate beauty. The layers are stacked well and tousled for a shaggy, carefree look.

#52: Neat and Sleek Ash Blonde Bob

If you are blessed with super-straight and healthy-looking hair, you are the perfect candidate for a round-silhouette short bob cut. With a center part and an inverted shape, the ash blonde bob is precise and sleek, beautifully framing the face and lengthening the neck.

#53: Choppy Bob with 3D Waves

The choppy bob with copper-toned 3D waves is one of our favorite short bob hairstyles because the color looks great against so many different skin tones. The wavy stacked locks fall in jagged pieces enhancing depth and volume. It’s a flexible look that works on a variety of face shapes.

#54: Curly Feminine Blonde Bob

One of the most feminine ways to style a bob is with big, loose curls. You can achieve this using a thick barrel wand or a regular curling iron with a clamp. Tousle the curls making them settle more naturally.

#55: Honey Brown Bob with Blonde Highlights

Perfect for every season, a honey brown bob with blonde highlights is a foolproof hairstyle choice. The slanted bottom makes the cut more visually interesting.

#56: Straight Rounded Bob

Sleek and smooth is best for some bobs, and if you can pull off a short style with highlights, then go for it. Light brown or dark blonde hair looks lovely with lighter streaks throughout.

#57: Short Frizzy Bronde Bob for Straight Hair

On point and trendy for the modern woman, the short inverted bronde bob with highlights is captivating. The slightly tousled top layers seem to “sprout” from the crown, while the textured straight locks cover the ears and reveal the neck.

#58: Pixie Bob for Thick Hair

Bobs bring texture and lightness to thick hair when it’s layered appropriately. Keep some hair flat against the back of the neck while adding graduated layers up, towards the crown.

#59: Pretty Piece-y Blonde Balayage Bob

We love promoting interesting and unique bob hairstyles for women, which is why we are choosing to show you this side-parted, uneven, piece-y cut. Wavy tresses loop around the head, with the metallic blonde tones shimmering and adding depth. Swoopy long bangs caress the cheek creating a lovely peek-a-boo.

#60: Inverted Wind-Swept Bob

A simple way to boost the appeal of an elegant hair style is to add a non-standard color to it. This chin-length bob hair style embraces a ton of daring silver-grey accents that give off a charming and mesmerizing vibe.

Perhaps you have sported long hair your entire life and you’re ready for a dramatic change. Or maybe you’ve maintained short hair for years and just want more of a relevant style. Whatever your reason, bob haircuts are ideal for warm summer weather as well as year-round. Easy to maintain and still brimming with fashion-forward beauty, a short bob easily becomes regular in lives of women who are busy yet still want to look their best.


The bob - it was a hair cut that shocked society when it was first created by Polish-born hairdresser Antoine de Paris in France in 1909, and it's been in fashion ever since. Over a century later and it's still one of the hottest hairstyles to have; whether you opt for a long bob aka the Lob, a shoulder-grazing choppy style or a blunt jaw-skimmer - the bob is the A-list hairstyle du jour.

'There are a few reasons for the resurgence of the bob,' says A-list hairstylist Paul Edmonds. 'Firstly, every woman I meet has been growing their hair for what seems like forever, so I think the new bob worn blunt with soft internal layers gives them the chance to have a haircut that can be worn in many ways, without having to grow it.'

But how can you make your bob more 2021 than 1920?

'Bobs are so versatile. You could have a French girl jaw-length flared out bob, or Charlize Theron's sleek slicked back at the sides with some height at the top bob,' explains Edmonds.
