An A-line bob haircut is when your hair is shorter in the back and gradually gets longer towards the front. The angle of the cut typically starts from the back of the neck and works its way straight down between the chin and the shoulders. It works for most face shapes and hair types. It will often frame the face to draw attention to the best facial features. A-line cuts are versatile and can have many variations, such as adding layers, stacking it, etc… Below, I’ve compiled some pictures of the best A-line bob haircuts of the year. Get ready to be inspired with one of these super chic looks!

Despite its structured appearance, the bob is surprisingly manageable—regular salon visits will keep the shape intact and the color vibrant. However, achieving this level of sheen at home may require the use of specific shine-enhancing products.

Suited for the daring, this look requires commitment to color upkeep and works best on straight, fine to medium-density hair to maintain the sharpness of the line.

A meticulous blow-dry using a round brush will accentuate the sleekness, while a serum or light hair oil can enhance shine.

#14: Futuristic A-Line Bob with Blunt Bangs

I love all bobs! My favorite thing about this precision A-line bob with bangs is the crisp, dramatic angle. Many current bobs have a little less angle and are more shattered at the bottom. We drew our inspiration from a few futuristic films and anime characters. I love how the length in the back hugs her head and creates that beautiful shape that connects with her jawline.

This haircut is ideal for those wanting a new look that adds structure and shape to thick hair. The cut has long layers in front and shorter layers at the back. It frames the face well.

The combination of a pixie and bob cut creates volume at the crown while keeping the sides and back neatly tapered.

#28: Chic A-Line Bob

This is a natural, balayaged lob. My favorite thing about it is the natural, effortless look yet super stylish, plus it’s very versatile. Curly, straight, and wavy textures can wear this look. It can remove bulk from heavy hair and make it appear lighter or add fullness to finer hair. Ideally, hair with mild texture would be preferable to add volume and less maintenance. This is a great hairstyle for a girl on the go! The haircut itself is already very stylish without having to style too much.

#29: Sassy Purple A-Line Bob for Thin Hair

This look is classy with some sass thrown in. This bob is fun and short, but the face-framing aspect makes it universally flattering! Short hair can still be face-framing! I recommend this style to anyone who wants a sleek, put-together look that’s easy to maintain. It’s ideal if you have thin hair and would like to add some volume and fullness or if you have thick, bulky hair and want to take some weight out.

#30: Bouncy Bob Cut in An A-Line

The weight of this cut is at the bottom, so there’s a slight bounce. To maintain this bob, you need a smoothing shampoo and conditioner to combat frizz, a leave-in conditioning cream or spray, a round brush, and a finishing oil mixed with a little pomade cream to help polish the look.

#31: Fresh A-Line Bob

This is a very practical and wearable haircut. Texture brings this haircut to the max and steers clear of the “helmet” hair. Put a lightweight spray oil on the hair while wet to protect it from heat and frizz. Try Agadir Argan oil. Paddle brush the hair until it is 85% dry, then use a large round brush until fully dry. Next, straighten the ends to show off the pieciness and texture.

#32: Beachy Wavy A-Line Bob Cut

This look is a textured A-line bob. The color is a dark brown to plum-violet balayage, and the beach wavy curls are fun and sassy. It’s a great length because it’s short enough to have a quick blow-dry but still long enough to throw into a quick ponytail and get it out of your face when needed.

#33: Softly Textured A Line Bob

I call this a softly textured bob. What I love the most about it is the texture and how it creates subtle movement, a fuller appearance, and versatility in the style. I recommend a dry shampoo at the roots and a texture spray for the ends. Use a 1 1/2-inch curling iron if beach waves are desired.

#34: Sleek A-Line Bob

Opt for a sleek bob with movement just at the bottom and cut a dramatic edge. The soft balayage highlights add dimension to the haircut. The sleek finish of this bob and how nicely the colors melt together give it a natural, seamless finish.

Purple Rooted A-Line

#35: Purple Rooted A-Line Long Bob

Consider a purple-rooted blonde with a soft A-line cut. It’s not your typical splash of color. An A-line is one of the most versatile cuts. Consider a shorter style (jaw or shorter) for heart-shaped and oblong-shaped faces.

#36: Minimal Graduation A Line Bob

This bob has a soft and subtle A-line with minimal graduation that gives the illusion of narrowing the jaw area, lengthening the neck, and emphasizing the décolletage. My favorite thing about this haircut is its simplicity. While being technically challenging, the result is very classic and timeless. This bob is always in style! The cut is perfect for fine hair because it leaves the hair feeling soft while providing shape memory. They have a cream formula with the same benefits for coarse hair types, making this look achievable for various hair types.

#37: Sleek and Modern A-Line Bob

Opt for an A-line bob that’s smooth, sleek, and modern. You can switch up your look with beach waves or curls, so it’s versatile. Use Bumble and Bumble Hair Dressers Oil Primer and Bumble and Bumble Straight to style.

#38: Short A-Line Haircut With Undercut

This is an A-line with a 2-inch undercut on the nape. It’s a very low-maintenance cut for the client because it lays perfectly. It’s razor cut to part on either side with a lightweight fringe, and because of the undercut, it falls perfectly in the back.

#39: Classy and Professional A-Line Lob

This bob is classy but a little different. It’s slightly edgier than the typical “older lady” style, but nothing crazy. It’s classy and professional, as she does work at an elementary school. It’s manageable, not too high maintenance, and is just a nice and sleek style.

#43: Horizontal Graduated A-Line with Bangs

This is a horizontal graduated A-line bob with point-cut ends. I call it my “French Girl Bob.” It offers height in the crown area, and lifting it off the shoulders doesn’t kick/flip up. The weight left in gives maximum movement and body. The fringe is optional.

#44: Bob Cut In A-Line Shape

A bob cut in A-line shape is a shorter haircut in the back and tapers off to longer, feathery, face-framing layers. Ladies should be brave enough to try on haircuts that they want.

#45: Candy-Inspired Bob

To me, this bob reminds me of candy. Maybe like the blue raspberry saltwater taffy you find at the coast! Whatever it is, I feel like it screams sugar! I would recommend this color and cut to any client who wants to look as sweet as they feel.

#46: Sheared A-Line

This look is a simple and subtle haircut achieved with shears per my client’s request. I normally love doing this cut with a razor for a little more shattered look. I feel this type of cut accentuates the jawline and gives a sexier edge to a bob.

#47: Fun and Fierce

I would describe this look as fun and fierce! The color is soft enough for a diverse look to wear with business attire, a casual event, or a night out. My favorite thing about this bob would have to be the cut. It’s short with lots of texture to add a weightless curl/wave, and you can also wear it pin-straight.

#48: Textured A-Line Bob Haircut

I did this lob (or long bob) haircut for my most soulful client. After a thorough consultation, we decided on a textured lob with a heavy perimeter. I love how the weight of her hair is showcased through the movement that just enough texturizing is provided.

#49: Medium A-Line Bob

This bob is very versatile and can be worn in many different ways! My favorite thing about this cut is that it is still lengthy toward the face. This style is great for women living a busy and active lifestyle while wanting to remain on trend! It’s great for any hair texture thick or thin, curly or straight. This look is so versatile that you can adjust the length to fit any face shape!

#50: Extreme Angled Graduated Bob

This look is a more extremely angled textured graduated bob. It complements most face shapes, and the angle brings style to your look. This haircut is wonderful for fine hair of medium thickness because it is quick to dry and style. It will take more time to dry and flat iron for thick, coarse, or curly hair.
