The angled bob has made a gigantic comeback as far as popular hairstyles go. It works well for many hair types and has countless styling options. Although it is one of the most chic hairstyles even at its least dressed up point, there are still plenty of ways to put an interesting twist on this new-found classic cut!

The Flipped Out Fox

This style is ridiculously easy to create. All you need is a few minutes and a flat iron and you’re on your way to a new, updated twist on your everyday angled bob!

How To Style:

  1. After washing, smooth hair out using either a round brush or a flat iron.
  2. Taking small sections and using a flat iron, bend the ends of the hair up.
  3. When completed, finish with a light finishing spray.

Recommended Products:

I love the lightweight feeling of Bumble and Bumble’s Classic Hairspray to polish off any great style!

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This hairstyle works well on all hair types and it flatters long faces.

Tips:

When using your flat iron, be sure to mind the temperature and don’t let it get too hot! You aren’t doing much smoothing here, just a little flipping out, so there’s no need to have the heat up extra high.

The Loose Curled Lass

I just love a good curl.This style will add tons of body and movement to your angled bob and can do wonders for framing your face. It’s simple, too!

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair that has either been round brushed or paddle brushed.
  2. Using a 1¼-inch curling iron, take small sections and curl each section.
  3. When you have finished curling each section, run your fingers through your hair to give it a more “imperfect” look.
  4. Finish with a light holding spray.

Recommended Products:

If your hair is fine and doesn’t hold curl well, I would recommend spraying each section with a working spray before you curl it. I like Spray De Mode by Bumble and Bumble.

Recommended Face Shape and Hair Type:

Any hair type will work well with this style. It will flatter most face shapes and soften any harsh features.

The Banged Up Bob

Straight across bangs transform your regular angled bob into something spectacular! If you are looking for a new look, or just want to add something different to your current look, give these bangs a try.

How To Style:

  1. You must first ask your stylist to give you some rockin’ straight across bangs. Don’t try to do it yourself at home! Trust me, you will regret it.
  2. Use a paddle brush and a blow dryer to smooth out your bangs after washing your hair.
  3. Flat iron if needed to smooth out the bangs.

Recommended Products:

A serum is a great product to use when you want smooth, sleek bangs. I love Super Skinny Serum by Paul Mitchell.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Bangs are great for those looking to hide an elongated forehead.

Tips:

Bangs are best styled when wet. I always tell my clients that if you don’t go after your bangs when they are still wet, you will be in big trouble! It’s much easier to iron out cowlicks when wet, so don’t miss your window of styling opportunity.

The Vintage Vixen

This look has a vintage feel and I absolutely love it! Don’t get stuck in the trap of thinking that an angled bob can only be worn down…you have plenty of updo options.

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair.
  2. If desired, secure the front sections of your hair on either side behind your ears with a bobby pin.
  3. Curl the remaining hair with a 1-inch curling iron.
  4. If your angled bob is on the longer side, you may want to pin up the curls at random on the back of your head. If your hair is short, you shouldn’t need to pin them up as they should be short enough already.
  5. Backcomb a little bit at your roots to give the curls an imperfect look.

Recommended Products:

To give your hair the “messier” curled look that’s shown in the picture above, I would recommend using some sort of hair powder or dry shampoo at your roots. I like Powder Puff by Kevin Murphy.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style will work great on any hair type and any face shape.

Tips:

Don’t take yourself too seriously for this one! Those curls can be on the messier side and still look gorgeous.

The Blown Out Babe

Although I love all of these styles, this one is probably my personal favorite. It gives your angled bob a touch of Big Sexy hair without being over the top. Talk about gorgeous!!

How To Style:

  1. After washing your hair, towel dry and part it as desired.
  2. Using a medium sized round brush, take small sections and begin blow drying and smoothing them out with your round brush.
  3. When finished, spray everything with a light finishing spray.

Recommended Products:

A great round brush is key for giving you that extra smooth look. Depending on your hair type and personal preference, you should go with either a boar bristle round brush or a metal round brush. If you have fine hair, I would go with a big, metal round brush. If you have coarse hair that needs lots of smoothing, I would try the boar bristle brush!

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style is great for all hair types and will add height to a round face shape.

The Half Curled Honey

This style is a unique twist on the angled bob. One side is curled and the other side is straight! If you really want to turn heads, give this style a try.

How To Style:

  1. Begin by parting your hair to the desired side. Decide which side will be smoothed out and which side will be curly.
  2. Curl one side with a 1-inch curling iron.
  3. Smooth out the other side with either a flat iron or a round brush.
  4. Spray everything with a light holding spray.

The Demure Diva

This is a more classic take on the ultra modern angled bob. There is something so stunning about a bob with a smoothed out finish!

How To Style:

  1. Begin with hair that is approximately 70% dry.
  2. Using a medium round brush and your blow dryer, take small sections and smooth them until dry. Be sure to give the ends a little flip up if the look in the picture is desired.
  3. After all sections are dry, apply a small amount of a smoothing oil or serum to complete your look and add shine.

Recommended Products:

To add shine after a great round brush, I love to use a tiny dash of Moroccan Oil. Use this product sparingly! It can get out of control very quickly.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style will be easier to do on someone with naturally smooth and fine hair. Curly, frizzy hair will just take a little more elbow grease! This style will flatter a round face.

The Sleek Seductress

Smoothing out your angled bob draws attention to this unique cut and can make it look even more dramatic. This style is a real head turner and it is as easy as one, two three!

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair that has been naturally dried or smoothed out with a flat brush. Apply a small amount of smoothing serum.
  2. Take small sections and smooth them out with your flat iron. Be sure to keep the flat iron at a reasonable heat that will not damage your hair.
  3. After all sections have been smoothed out, apply a bit of styling paste or wax to the ends to accentuate your angled bob.

Recommended Products:

I love Sumo Wax by Bumble and Bumble for adding a piecey look after you have smoothed out your hair!

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style will work great with any hair type and will elongate round face shapes.

Tips:

Be sure to keep your flat iron at a low temperature. If you have fine hair, you should not exceed 250 degrees. If you have thick, coarse hair, you can go up a little further, but it’s best not to exceed 375-400 degrees, and that’s only if you really must!

The Sweet ‘N Sassy

This style has a touch of sweet and a touch of sass! It’s ideal for your angled bob, which due to the shortness of the back, allows plenty of body and oomph up top.

How To Style:

  1. Start with dry hair that is parted to the desired side.
  2. Using a 1¼-inch curling iron, take small sections and curl them.
  3. After each section has been curled, run your fingers through your hair and mess it up a little bit! No need to be perfect with this style.

Recommended Products:

Super Clean Spray by Paul Mitchell will give you excellent hold without feeling extra sticky. Give it a try!

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style is perfect for anyone who wants to add extra body to their fine, flat hair. It will work well for any hair type.

The Swept Up Sweetheart

Pulling back your angled bob can give you a romantic look that will make all the girls jealous! It’s easy and since you’re dealing with short hair, it won’t take you long at all.

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair that has been smoothed out with either a round brush or a flat brush.
  2. If you are going for some extra body, back comb the section of hair that is in your crown area.
  3. Start by pulling the top half of your hair back and secure it with bobby pins. It should look like a half up half down style at this point.
  4. Pull up the remaining hair and secure it with bobby pins.
  5. Secure the ends of hair that are poking out to the head using bobby pins. Don’t aim for perfection here! It shouldn’t be an exact look.
  6. Give the whole style a spritz of holding spray and you’re ready to go!

Recommended Products:

Give your roots a little dash of Powder Play by Kevin Murphy before you backcomb. The volume will be incredible!

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style is great for all hair types and will flatter any face shape.

Tips:

As I mentioned before, don’t try to be too perfect here. Just go with it!
