A chin-length bob with bangs forms a modern, short to medium hairstyle. The fringe is what 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 tons of 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.
