The hairstyle combines a chin-length bob with middle-part bangs. The chin-length bob gives a bold definition to your face shape. If your face is round or heart-shaped, a middle part can help create an illusion of length. Bangs that frame the face and flip out around the eyes add beauty. These details help shape the eyes and balance the face.

A boyfriend bob is a hairstyle with textured ends. The boyfriend bob revives the 90’s skater vibe. Chin-length bobs suit narrow jawlines well. Additionally, adding texture to the ends lightens the overall look, making it a good option for rounder jawlines.

#5: Short Italian Bob with Money Piece

Consider a short Italian bob paired with a bold money piece. A chin-length bob suits long, oval, and heart face shapes, creating balance for these facial features. For smaller face shapes, a middle part with a bold money piece offers an appealing look while adding width, resulting in a well-balanced face. Ideally, this style suits oval, heart, and inverted triangle shapes.

Use an up and down motion down your hair strand to create the perfect “S” wave.

A bob is a timeless style that works for any face shape! This hairstyle has been around since it was popular in the 60s. Create an inverted bob by cutting the hair shorter in the back and longer in the front. Reverse bob hairstyles can be cut blunt or with stacked layering in the back for adding volume.

A short bob paired with a side part is a bold take on a classic look for women wanting to switch things up a bit.

#18: Effortless Chin-Length Wavy Bob

The best way to describe this chin-length wavy bob is effortless chic. My favorite thing about it is how striking chin-length blunt bobs look. For women without a natural wave, it’s easy to throw some curls in and shake the hair out for an easy, messy look. Try R+Co Trophy because it is both a shine and texture spray, almost like a spray wax. Use it to shake the curls up and give the hair some body. It also smells unreal! The entire look straight is also very doable, and that’s where the striking “chic” look comes in. Chin-length waves got a more fashion-forward look to it and, when cut totally even and blunt, is extremely beautiful.

#19: Pink and Red Chin-Length Blunt Bob

Consider a chin-length blunt bob with lots of texture and blunt bangs. Ask your stylist to bleach it out and give it some rose and peach hues to create this pink color. Although this length is very flattering on most, it is still something to keep in mind.

#20: Timeliness, Lived-in Chin-Length Bob

This haircut is versatile and timeless. It can be worn sleek and modern like shown above or tousled and texturized for a more lived-in look.

#21 Fashion-Forward Chin-Length Bob for Older Women

It’s a very fashion-forward and chic look. I love how sophisticated and classy it looks. I definitely recommend a smoothing serum or oil (depending on hair type) and an anti-humidity hairspray for finishing.

#22: Punk Chin-Length Bob

Opt fo a punk-inspired chin-length bob with micro bangs framing the face.

#23: Adorable Chin-Length Asymmetrical Bob

This is such a fresh cut. It’s perfect for who have a coloring history. If you’ve done much previous coloring and bleaching, it will be great to get rid of those dry ends! I love the asymmetry of it and I feel that that complements the new color perfectly.

#24: Flawless Chin Length A-Line Bob

Consider a modern, fun bob with an interesting twist. For those with thick hair, I recommend a small undercut in the back to remove a lot of weight and to get a more uniform a-line. The undercut isn’t as necessary for those with less than thick hair. I love a strong bob and believe there’s a shape for almost any face shape and hair type.

#25: Playful Yet Professional Bob

This look encompasses the complexity of all that characterizes a bob. It’s precise yet deconstructed, playful yet professional, and classic yet creative.

#26: Blunt Chin-Length Bob

A blunt, chin-length bob is great for oval, heart or inverted triangle face shapes. It broadens the jawline and chin for those face shapes with a slighter chin. This cut might not work if you have extremely thick and/or curly hair.

#27: Sci-Fi Bob

A sci-fi bob is a blunt, slightly angled razored bob with internal layering to reduce bulk. The hair on top should be long enough to accentuate the blunt ends and style easily.

#28: Chin-Length Bob with Waves

This is a chin-length bob for finer hair with a slight angle. It’s sophisticated yet alluring. Use Oribe products to achieve this look. After blow-drying the hair out completely smooth and straight, use a flat iron to give a slight bend, focusing on the pieces framing the face. Then, use Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray all over for volume and texture.

#35: The Big Curled Bob

This style can transform an everyday bob into something fancy shmancy in no time! Be sure to avoid damaging your hair by keeping the curling iron on a lower heat. Typically, the middle heat setting on curling irons works well for most hair types. If your hair is coarser, you may need to quickly turn the heat up.

#37: Chin-Length Bob with Curtain Bangs

A chin-length bob with curtain bangs is ideal for a woman that does not want to spend a ton of time on her hair. The fringe is flirty and adds movement, making fine to medium hair a breeze to style.

#38: Ultra Sleek Chin-Length Bob

For the reserved modern woman, an ultra-sleek bob at chin-length is super sophisticated. The precision itself captures the design and requires a strong eye for detail in your stylist. A flatiron and Skinny Serum by Paul Mitchell puts the perfect finishing touches on this cut.

New Wave Chin-Length Bob with Bangs

#39: New Wave Chin-Length Bob with Bangs

This cut is a new wave approach to a blunt cut 60s bob. The look is somewhat classic, but throws in a modern touch with the bob undercut shaved all around. Women with straighter hair would do better with this haircut. It’s much easier to give straight hair texture than it is to smooth out curlier hair to show the blunt bob line at the chin. Because my model has the straight hair, it’s very easy for her to manage this style on her own.

#41: Alternative Bob

Go for an alternative to the classic bob. By cutting the bob chin-length and graduating the nape, gives it a chic and trendy air.  As for products, use a light serum to give the hair sheen so the hair will have movement without being weighed down. To recreate this look, the hair should be shampooed, conditioned and wrapped with a styling foam. The client should then be placed under dryer before dry combing the hair down and flat ironing.

#42: Chin-Length Bob with Side-Swept Bangs for Women Over 50

You’ll want to try a chin-length bob with side-swept bangs if you’re a woman over 50. A medium-length cut modernizes your shape and can make you appear younger. Go for a side-swept bang for a dramatic effect and softening facial features. This shape is low-maintenance with a quick blow dry with a round brush, and a trim up about every 5-6 weeks.

A chin-length bob is a bob haircut that ends near the chin and mid-neck. Chin-length bobs are also known as a medium bob hairstyle. This bob length works with almost all face shapes, but it flatters narrow faces the most. If you’re looking to widen the appearance of your jawline, this bob cut is ideal for you!

Some people may find this length of bob hard to come up with diverse styling options and get stuck in the trap of “it’s too short, I can’t do anything but just leave it straight.” Not the case! Take a look at these styles for a little inspiration.
