15 Incredible Middle Part Bob Ideas for Black Women

Middle part bob for black women

A middle part bob is a short haircut, from ear to neck-length, that’s parted down from the center of the head. It creates a really flattering, dramatic change not just to your hairstyle but also to your face because of its face-framing prowess!

Constantly present in red carpet events as worn by models Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Gwyneth Paltrow, this snazzy styling technique on short hair is well known to have a balancing, slimming, and elongating effect on faces with sharp angles and short or round shapes.

A center part can also put the spotlight down to the nose and your eyes, which can make your makeup appear more glamorous and effective! You simply need to find out which style, cut, and length of bob will work for you.

This year is the time to be confident and powerful and seize a bold, short haircut that will take you places! Say goodbye to your dull hair and hello to one of these super edgy and modern middle part bobs!

Quick Weave Bob

Q&A with style creator, Tiliea Shipp
Hairstylist @ Tiliea Marie Beauty Studio in Kennesaw, GA


How would you describe this look?

This look is clean and chic. The best thing about it is its simplicity. Although it’s simple, I feel like it still grabs attention.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Consider their face shape. A middle part isn’t for everyone. Also, I would tell them to consider their lifestyle. If they are very active and can’t maintain their own hair then a quick weave may be the best option for you.
