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.

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.

#40: 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.

#42: 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.

#43: 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.
