15 Cutest Chin-Length Layered Bobs for a Fresh, Short Look

chin length layered bob

A chin-length layered bob is a voluminous haircut brimming with sophistication and style. Strands are cut to various lengths to form flattering shapes and suit most women.

Although short hair requires less effort to look polished, styling is yet a must.

Canada-based stylist Chelsey states that it doesn’t air-dry well. “What works best is blowing it dry with a brush for smoothness and volume,” she notes.

Explore that potential of your tresses’ cut. Style it and try new things with it now and then. Curls and waves would take it to the next level!

A drawback that Chelsey notices about this bob is related to facial structures. She explains that “it’s the kind of cut ladies with a round face shape would want to avoid.”

The placement of layers is significant in ensuring that the bob cut would benefit you. Understand whether or not you need weight within your locks and where it should be.

“It all depends on the profile you’re trying to achieve and what hair texture and type you have,” states Chelsey.

You also want to discuss the effort you’re willing to put in styling your mane with your hairdresser.
