A chin-length bob with bangs forms a modern, short to medium hairstyle. The fringe makes it versatile to most facial structures, flattering women of any age.
Stylist Kate Convery from Providence, RI, considers this style effortless if cut appropriately. “It gives instant style and edge if you’re looking for something chic and bold,” she points out.
This bob can look very youthful on most face shapes. It accentuates features of round faces and creates an illusion of an elongated shape. It even softens sharp lines on square or heart-shaped faces.
What a chin-length haircut lacks is a lot of different ways to style it. “Bobbed hair wouldn’t work if you like to pull your hair back or wear it up. The cut itself is the style alone,” states Convery.
A short bob with a fringe is ideal for ladies with thin, fine hair. Thicker locks need weight removal and added texture to prevent the “helmet” appearance. Convery notes, “I cut my short bobs with a straight razor to give them a softer, more effortless finish.”
Before settling for a specific haircut, go through a consultation with a professional. Make sure it fits your face shape, hair texture, density, and lifestyle.

#11: French Contour Bob Makeover
If you want a sleek hair makeover, a chin-length French contour bob is perfect. This cut is about precision, with defined angles framing your face beautifully. It works best for those with straight to slightly wavy hair. It requires a lot of smoothness and shine to highlight the sleek lines of the cut. I recommend using a lightweight smoothing serum to tame any frizz and add shine when styling. Then, you can use your flat iron to create the perfect straight finish. The bangs can be styled bluntly or swept to the side, depending on your preference. Tell your stylist if you have any issues with styling, as they can be a big help!

#16: Amazing Precision Cut Bob
Precision cuts look amazing when worn simply. I suggest keeping the part in the middle to give an even amount of hair on each side. And cutting to the jaw gives maximum impact. When asking for a full fringe, state clearly where you want it to sit above the eyebrow; it looks edgy, but keeping it longer also works well.
#17: Razor Cut Tousled Bob

Ask your stylist about color tone options to best suit your features and skin tone.

The white blonde bob with side bangs is a spot-on hairstyle for women over 60. It’s an easy-to-maintain-and-wear haircut, but when it comes to the color, you must be prepared for a bit of golden hue popping out. If you want to cancel the warmth, remember to buy a purple shampoo like Maroccanoil Blonde Perfecting Shampoo and use it once every 5 to 7 washes.
#23: Graduated Bob with Long Bangs
Long bangs on a short, graduated bob will make eyes of any color pop. Rounded bob haircuts that graze the chin and jawline and with a fringe require more frequent trims than others.

#32: Jaw-Length Bobbed Hair
A jaw-length bob hairstyle is sleek and sophisticated. However, it is not recommended for heart, pear, or square-shaped faces as it can make the face shape appear wide. For round and oval-shaped faces, this chin-length bob with blunt bangs hairstyle is a knockout with bold lines. Ask your stylist to blunt cut the perimeter and the eyebrow-skimming bangs if you are daring.
#33: Messy Choppy Bob with Curtain Bangs
Try a choppy, messy bob if you like having your hair short to medium-length and want to try out curtain bangs. Curtain bangs are not just for long hair lengths; this popular style fringe is all the rage. A chin-length angled bob with bangs is just a perfect pair on any face shape, and the only time it is not recommended to have bangs is if you have a strong cowlick in your hairline, as they can become difficult to style. A messy chin-length bob with curtain bangs adds a very soft, romantic feel and shape and body to your hairstyle.

#36: Chin-Length Bob with Fringe
Consider trying this chin-length bob with a fringe for thick hair. This cut is not going away anytime soon and is universally flattering.

Fringes bring any cute and sleek bob to the next level, and level it up even more by making it asymmetrical! Adding lots of texture with the product during the styling process of your chin-length bob with wispy bangs hairstyle will create a lot of visual interest and is a guaranteed way to turn heads. Use a sea salt or texture spray after blow-drying to create texture and volume.
