Angled bob haircuts

An angled bob is a forward haircut that’s shorter in the back and gradually transitions to a longer length in the front, giving it an angled appearance. Pretty simple, right?

So calling it an angled bob is a more generic term that describes the general shape of the short haircut. There are actually several specific types of angled bobs to choose from. The most common ones are a-line, inverted, graduated, and asymmetrical.

This cut has made a gigantic comeback as far as popular haircuts go. It works well for many hair types and has countless styling options. Although it is one of the chicest haircuts, there are still plenty of ways to put an interesting twist on this newfound classic cut!

Below, I’ve put together some photos of some of the cutest and best angled bobs for your next haircut inspiration!

#1: Short Bob for Thick Hair

A short bob for thick tresses will look great, however, the hair will have to be thinned out a lot to sit correctly. You should know a short bob cut will require a good amount of styling with a blow dryer and flat iron. Before styling, use a smoothing cream and heat protector to withstand the heat for minimal damage.

#7: Medium Length Angled Bob Haircut

Q&A with style creator, Nicolas Flores
Hairstylist @ Sally Hershberger Salon in Los Angeles, CA

How would you describe this look?

This sliced bob cut is a collarbone length, slightly angled in the front with no layering. My client does have a ton of hair, so in order to achieve the look to be worn blown out smooth or air-dried, we sliced out the weight in the interior of the hair to reduce bulk. The color done by Sulehka Hilton (@raucouscolour) adds dimension to make the hair look sunkissed.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This haircut fits any face shape, and the length is what you want to consider when achieving it. Some face shapes will require you to keep the length longer such as a collar bone while other face shapes look great at a shorter length. I always recommend not to over-style the hair when achieving a look at home. Think less is more.

Use Bumble and Bumble invisible oil for frizz control and a UV protectant, and also use a great texture spray such as Sally Hershberger 24K Supreme Stylist to add in texture.

#8: The Cutest Short Angled Bob

Opt for a dark brown base to the ends. As it almost looks like it could be the model’s natural hair with some subtle highlights.

It’s versatile for so many face shapes. With the asymmetry, it can be suitable for a round to square face shapes. A fringe is also an option for women who want to have it. In this case, the model has a soft sweeping fringe.

Some stylists recommend an undercut with this bob shape because it allows the weight line to be definite and with no hair pushing out from underneath, it grows out better. This is definitely for more of a trendy, woman who isn’t afraid to go short in the nape.

The styling is quite versatile, it does require some work, such as blow-drying with a smoothing lotion and heat protectant spray on the ends. Use a color-safe shampoo and conditioner to keep the color looking rich and healthy.

Fun & Flirty Bob

#9: Fun & Flirty Bob

This is definitely a fun and flirty bob! It’s a very versatile style that is perfect for an everyday look or for a night out! I love the texture of the beach waves. They fall so soft and effortlessly.

To recreate this look, apply a mousse such as Big & Sexy Hair Root Pump and a smoothing serum like Paul Mitchell Super Skinny before blow-drying. This will internally lock in your style, create volume, add heat protection, and eliminate any frizz. Once fully dry, spray Bed Head Masterpiece Hairspray and comb through.

Then, starting from the bottom and working toward the top of the head, section the hair horizontally and curl one-inch vertical sections with a 1 1/4-inch curling iron. When you curl, make sure to leave the tail end out. This is the secret to that beachy wave! Once we curl the entire head, spray a light mist of hairspray all over and allow it to dry and cool for 30 seconds. Comb the hair out with your fingers and you’re all set!

This type of bob looks very flattering on any face shape and with any hair texture. It fits any lifestyle because it’s easy to style straight or wavy. For thick hair, make sure you find a good hairdresser that is comfortable with texturizing. This type of cut will need to be thinned out and texturized in order for it to lay and style right.

#10: Emerald Angled Bob

Q&A with style creator, Karinna Barley
REDKEN Specialist @ Just B Hair Salon in Duluth, GA

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

This is an emerald-angled bob haircut. My favorite thing about the look is the contrast. Normally, green hair tends to be something people try to avoid, but the emerald tones blend beautifully with her naturally dark base.

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

I always recommend color-safe shampoos, conditioners, and styling products for all of my vivids. I prefer Pureology’s line of products because of their all-natural ingredients and anti-fade complex.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for clients looking to express themselves and be comfortable in their skin. Fashion colors normally require a moderate level of maintenance, so I require my clients to continue their hair care at home with Olaplex or pH bonder and to come in for a refresh every six to eight weeks.

#11: An Edgy Take on a Classic Bob

Q&A with style creator, Marlo Svegelius
Master Stylist @ Pure Form Salon in Calgary, Canada

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

This is an edgy version of a classic look. You can never go wrong with a classic bob, but let’s add some texture and refine the shape to create interest. My favorite thing about this cut is that anyone can have it. It suits everyone with just a little tweaking!

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

I always recommend a root lifting spray or foam, as well as a smoothing cream for the ends. Of course, everyone’s hair is different, so ultimately it depends on the client’s hair type.

This look can be created in many ways on many different types of hair. You definitely a heat protector to save the hair from any hot tools used, as well as a soft paddle brush for the initial blow-dry and a round brush or flat iron to finish if needed.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This haircut can be for anyone! All ages and lifestyles love this cut because if its versatility. It can be worn in many different ways, (wavy, curly or straight) and even has the ability to put back (at least partially). Any face shape can wear this cut, you just need to adjust the angle and weight of the hair. It can hide problem spots or define facial features.

It is an easy cut to take care of for 99% of people. With that being said, someone with coarse, frizzy hair might have to spend a little more time with it. It is a short cut, so no more than 15 minutes should be needed to polish this look. It is one of my favorite looks to do!

#12: Fun Short Textured Bob

This is a fun short textured bob. The best thing about it is that you can style it multiple ways and it’s great for any hair type and texture.

Try using Aveda Volumizing Tonic for lightweight volume. Pair it with Aveda New Texture Tonic to add soft, movable texture. It’s great for straight or curly hair.

This cut works great for any hair type, texture, and density. It can really soften a strong jawline. This look is a great on-the-go style, but can easily be dressed up with some loose curls if desired.

#13: Sleek Angled Bob with Sharp Lines

I would describe this look as a beautiful and sleek angled bob haircut that never goes out of fashion. The best thing about this style is the sharp lines. It’s the perfect balance of short and voluminous at the back but keeps the appearance of length around the face.

This style is for all women, no matter the hair texture or age. It can be adapted to each and every woman. It is a timeless look that can be styled sleek or textured.

#14: Medium-Length Angled Bob

I would describe this as a medium-length angled bob. It’s a low-maintenance hairstyle that is full of modern style. Bobs are great short hairstyles.

Use a serum to keep ends smooth and add high shine, as well as a root boost for volume. A great serum is Loma Fortifying Tonic. It helps repair the hair while adding protection and shine. The trick to making hair look healthy is shine!

Try a volume spray like Kenra Root Lifting Spray. It adds a lot of volume without making the hair feel sticky. Use a medium-sized round brush during the blow-dry to add max volume, and a flat iron to smooth the ends straight.

#15: Power Bob

I describe this look like the new classic. It’s a modern take on an a-line cut with blunt lines and internal layering to create a sleek, but soft shape.

To recreate this look, use Goldwell hair color and Goldwell Duel Senses shampoo and conditioner to maintain the tone.

Because this length is universally flattering and the color is low-maintenance, I recommend this look to a wide range of clients. You could customize this look for each client using different degrees of layering depending on hair type.

#16: Nicely Stacked Angled Bob with Blonde Highlights

Go for a bob that has low graduation (or stack) in the back and a point-cut perimeter to create a soft edge. Consider blonde highlights to enhance the shape of the haircut to make it stylish.

For this look,  start with ColorMinded shampoo and conditioner to keep the color looking its best between salon visits. After towel drying, apply Prep from root to end as a primer, then apply Thickening Hairspray the same way. This will add hold so you get the most out of your blow-dry.

Finally, add a quarter to a half-dollar amount of Straight Blowdry from mid-length to ends. This will help get a smoother, frizz-free look. For the prettiest finish, use a round brush to blow-dry. Additionally, get a trim once every five to seven weeks.

Anytime you get a haircut it should be a custom creation to enhance or play down features. This haircut looks the best on narrow, oval, and heart-shaped faces, but can be adjusted to work with most shapes. Texture-wise, this cut works best on straight to slightly wavy hair.

Overall, this cut works great for most lifestyles. It’s polished enough for a professional setting or you can add a little sass with some flat irons curls for a girl’s night.

#17: Timeless Bob

This cut is classic and timeless. It can be flattering to most face shapes and hair types.

We recommend Organic Pure Care products. All of their products are incredible, but we recommend the Volumizing Spray, Volumizing Foam, and Hydrating Shiny Spray to achieve this particular look on people with the client’s hair type.

The long lengths in the front could help balance any roundness in the face, but altogether this is a very versatile cut and can be worn by someone with naturally curly, wavy, or straight hair.

#18: Long Angled Bob with Layers

Q&A with style creator, Megan Anton
Hairstylist / Salon Owner @ Hair By Megan Anton LLC in Surprise, AZ

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

This is an angled long bob haircut. I really love this haircut because you can wear it straight or you can style it with soft beach waves. The long layers in the haircut help create volume and add extra movement through the hair when worn curled.

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

For this style, I recommend Moroccanoil Beach Wave Mousse applied to wet hair and blown into the hair. The mousse adds volume and long lasting texture throughout the hair. I used the Babyliss 1 1/4-inch curling iron to create the waves. When curling, I left the last inch of the hair out of the curling iron to create an undone beachy look.

I finished the style with Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray. This spray adds long lasting hold and texture to curls created in the hair.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

An angled layered bob haircut is so great because it really works on any hair type or face shape. For clients with coarse curly hair, I would recommend leaving the layers longer. For clients with fine/limp hair, the layers can be cut shorter to help create more volume and movement through the hair.

This haircut is very versatile as well. It can be styled straight, naturally curly, curled with a curling iron, or even thrown up in a half topknot.

#19: Slightly Angled Lob

Q&A with style creator, Nina Mahlum
Master Colorist @ Koi Hair Salon in Jacksonville, NC

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

This is anangled lob with just a slight, subtle angle and tapered ends that are perfect for tousling and usually very flattering on all hair types!

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

Prime your towel dried hair with Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray and Kenra’s Thickening Glaze. Finish with a dry texture spray like Amika Un.done Texture Spray.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This lob is such a feminine look that is very versatile and can be a successful style for the business woman in the office, or an effortless look for the beach babe! It can be cool, casual, sophisticated or runway fierce.

It’s easy to cater this look to different face shapes and hair types. For example, you could add a little fringe, leave length around the face to eliminate any round facial features…the list goes on! There are so many options in customizing which lob look is best for you.

No-Fuss Wavy Angled Bob Cut

#20: No-Fuss Wavy Angled Bob Cut

Go for a versatile, lived-in, a-line bob cut. These days the term “lived-in” is used to describe a no-fuss, ready-to-go hairstyle, and this cut comes closest to that. The best thing about it is that it can be worn classically straight and smooth by an executive, or curled for a younger more playful look.

Use Neuma Afghan treatment for shine and softness, Unite Elevate mousse for body and control, and finish the angled style with a texturizing spray! Always use a texturizing spray or paste for the lived-in look.

This cut works best with medium to fine hair. It can be worn by faces of all shapes because of its versatility and depending on how it’s styled and worn.

A glossy blunt bob is a modern cut that showcases a blunt look, characterizing lines and smoothness that show versatility and boldness.

#22: Fresh Cut Bob

Q&A with style creator, Sadie Ross
Stylist / Colorist @ My Hair Salon in Port Perry, Ontario

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

I love this look for the start of fall. After a summer of relaxed hair, it’s nice to add some structure back with a great cut, but still keep things relaxed with the beachy waves. After summer, I love cutting off sun damaged ends. A great thing is that even without a new hair color, this cut alone makes the whole look fresh again.

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

I’m all about lightweight products that are pliable, meaning that if a client wishes to re-mold her hair throughout the day, she has that option without ending up a greasy mess. I used KMS Sea Salt Spray while her hair was damp to add some texture. After styling, I finished with KMS Dry Wax. These are both fun products that I use on women with long and short hairstyles to give them an effortless look.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I think there is a bit of a misconception that a lot of women can’t rock the angled bob, but this is so far from the truth. This style can really be adjusted (by a good hairstylist) to fit anyone’s face shape or hair type.

The bob can be as high maintenance as you want to make it, which makes it so fun and versatile. For those back to school mums that are frazzled in the morning but want to look like they have it together, this one is for you.

Stylish Blonde Lob

#23: Stylish Blonde Lob

This look is classic and stylish. It appeals to all types of women because it’s very versatile and easy to pull off.

The best thing about it is all the options it has. This look can be kept smooth or waved for a stylish look. The cut looks amazing with great hair color.

For styling, use a smoothing serum added to damp hair and blowdry it. More can be used when hair is dry to polish it even more. A volumizing mousse is a great idea as well. A heat protectant spray is a must if you use a flat iron.

This look is very flattering to many, however, the best candidate would have to have density on the sides to pull off the angle. Thicker hair tends to be best. Other textures could also work but will require effort to have it lay correctly. This cut also does require maintenance to keep it laying nicely.

#24: Dimensional Long Angled Bob

Q&A with style creator, Stephanie Smith
Hairstylist @ Glo Hair Lounge in Winter Springs, FL

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

This is a dimensional blonde and with soft, ash-gold tones on a long angled bob. I love how sleek it turned out.

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

For this look, I used Oribe Straight Away Smoothing Blowout Cream, Oribe Royal Blowout, and Oribe Super Fine Hairspray. For my formula, I did baby-fine highlights all over then toned her with Guy Tang 10SM. I also used Fanola purple shampoo to get rid of any yellow tones.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for someone with a natural level 5 or higher, with a light to medium skin tone. I would also recommend it for someone who loves the outdoors or the beach.

#26: Beautiful Angled Bob

Go for an angled bob! Ask your stylist if they have the Surface Hair razor to create lots of fun textures for the maximum amount of versatility. It helps create a beautiful and easy style wearing beachy waves or smooth.

For styling, try Surface Hair Care! Use the Surface Awaken mousse to give some extra volume and the Surface Swirl sea salt spray for extra texture and movement! To finish, add the Surface Bassu oil for shine and softness.

This cut is for women looking for a low-maintenance style. It’s great for almost any face shape and texture. Depending on the technique, using the razor can help add volume for fine hair and remove weight for thick hair. The beachy waves are a great way to add to your look.

#27: Sleek Shoulder-Length Angled Bob

Q&A with style creator, Megan Germershausen
Stylist @ Studio 7 The Salon in Baltimore, MD

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

This is a shoulder length, sleek angled bob. I love the distinct, crisp lines that create the shape! My favorite thing about an angled bob is the versatility that comes with it. It can be styled in so many ways!

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

The products recommend for this sleek bob are the Paul Mitchell Mirror Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner to help reduce frizz and create a smooth canvas for styling, the Paul Mitchell Mirror Smooth Highgloss Primer for a smooth and high shine blow dry, and the Paul Mitchell Neuro Protect for heat protection and to reduce frizz prior to smoothing with a flat iron. I also recommend Paul Mitchell Stay Strong to keep everything in place while still having a touchably soft style.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

A sleeker bob is best for someone with naturally straight hair or someone willing to put in some work to style their hair smooth to enhance that angle. However, this type of cut in general can be styled wavy, curly or textured! Who doesn’t love beach waves?!

The best thing about a cut like this is that it’s flattering for every face shape and can be customized for every guest!

Bright Angled Bob hairstyle

#28: Bright Angled Bob

Q&A with style creator, Mandita Ardeleanu
Hairstylist @ HairstylebyM in Aarhus, Denmark

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

This is an easy to wear, fresh and bright look. In general, bob haircuts are quite easy to style (most of the time), and this particular look doesn’t require too much attention since the hair is short and not very thick.

This is a practical look for women who don’t want to spend so much time in front of the mirror, and that’s one of my favorite things about it. It’s also the type of look that needs a trim at least every three months since the shape of the haircut changes every month.

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

For blonde hair, I always recommend a silver shampoo. The one that I like the most is from Milk Shake because it doesn’t stain the hair, but it does remove the yellow tones or undertones and it make the hair look like it’s always freshly colored.

Blonde hair can sometimes get a rough texture over time. In order to keep the hair soft and shiny, I recommend oil and heat protection to moisturize the hair and protect it against heat.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I mostly recommend this look for women who don’t have very thick hair or for those who want to have short hair, but still not very short or too boring. The bob haircut is much easier to blow dry and give volume than if the hair is worn thin, long and flat.

I recommend it for ladies who have round, oval and round shaped faces. It is not so much for ladies with a long face since this specific haircut is longer in front, symmetrical, and a bit angled. It will actually give the feeling that the face is even longer.

Babylights surely add a plus to this look because even as the hair grows, the color will still look fresh and the roots will blend smoothly in the length. It gives a dynamic feeling and creates movement in the hair. This look is simple to maintain and fits perfectly for women who wants to have a different hairstyle that isn’t boring but easy to style.

Q&A with style creator, Suidayna Williams

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

This is a angled sleek bob. My favorite thing about it is the color. The way the red panels peep through is beautiful!

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

Kenra Silkening Gloss and Lanza Brush Through Hairspray were the perfect products for this look.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this to anyone that wants their hair to look thicker or just wants to wear a short sassy style.

#30: Texturized Balayaged Angled Lob

Q&A with style creator, Michelle
Stylist / Hair Painter @ Salon Prive in Lorton, VA

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

I would call this look at texturized, balayaged lob. All of the dimension and texture is what I love most!

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

I painted on some Schwarzkopf Blonde Me bleach and texturized the hair with scissors and razor. Lastly, I curled the hair with my favorite BioIonic curling iron and sprayed with a texture spray.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This would be great look for fine or medium texture hair. With this style, the client should be prepared to style their hair daily. It is a super cut for women who want to try a shorter length.
