A funky inverted bob is a unique, vibrant short-length haircut that’s fun to wear. Layers are cut short in the back with longer pieces towards the front for a stacked and angled effect. It suits edgy women with loud and strong personalities!
Stylist and salon owner Cat Cook from New Rochelle, NY adores this chop on thin, fine hair. “A textured bob can add life to tresses. It gives your hair instant character and edginess that makes you walk around with a little bit more sass.”
With razor and texture shears, stylists can customize a bob cut based on ladies’ hair type. Using the proper techniques adds fantastic texture and movement to locks.
For women wanting an inverted bob, best to consider your face shape and features. “Jawline, neck, and collarbone play a vital role in determining the length of the cut,” says Cook.
Medium or longer bobs, for instance, break up the roundness of a chubby-faced shape. Face-framing pieces soften a square face while creating an elongated effect.
Short hair demands high upkeep and daily styling to boost its form. Keep in mind that you can’t pull all your strands up in a ponytail during a bad hair day. If you’re not fond of hair products and regular trims, Cook doesn’t recommend this trend.

#12: Short Inverted Cut For Curly Hair
For curly brown hair, this funky inverted bob is a gem! Created by stylist Christin Brown of Santa Barbara, this funky haircut can enhance the shape and volume of the curls. It also features layers for maximum fullness.
Brown’s ultimate advice for women considering this curly inverted bob is to be sure that you want to go shorter. “If you go too short, hair does grow back but it can take a long time to get back to where you were. If you’re considering fun and bold shape with your hair, make sure that it supports your lifestyle,” Brown explains.
It’s best to also look through some images of women with curly hair like yours and a cut that you admire.
Go over proper products and styling care with your stylist when it comes to maintenance. Brown notes, “They can show you the best products for your hair type and also educate you during your session. That way you go home with the skills needed to recreate that salon-fresh look.”
For an everyday look, feel free to use a styling cream to minimize the frizz and defines the curls.

A funky asymmetrical inverted bob with a stacked back is edgy in style and color! It’s a funky hairstyle by Hannah Plasse, a stylist from Keene, NH.

To get the movement and fun in the hair, smooth with a flat iron or blow-dry smooth first. Then get wild with the texture products to create fun, tousled but touchable volume.
#15: Inverted Cut with a Dramatic Angle
The dramatic angle featured here is a sharp inverted, angled bob by stylist Maxine G of North Bay, ON. With a bit of an edgier haircut, it’s great for women desiring a funky change.
Maxine finds this inverted bob with angled layers great for women who have medium-to fine hair. “It’s easy to style with naturally straight or wavy hair, but not recommended for curly hair type,” Maxine adds.
#16: Super Stacked Inverted Bob
This is a super stacked inverted a-line bob, made by stylist Julie Holbrook of Ogden, UT. It has soft layering that is shattered and soft rather than chunky layers. It’s an all-over scalp bleach with a soft purple toner. With a good round brush, you should be able to get good volume and height on this rounded inverted bob.
“This funky stacked bob works well for most women. A few things to consider would be the density of hair, head shape, and willingness to style. Thick hair is going to lay in the style faster than thin hair, but it can be done,” Holbrook points out.
If you have a flat head, you’re going to have to work extra hard in styling to achieve fullness and volume. You must be willing to round brush the style every time you wash. Holbrook emphasizes that this is a wash-and-go style but to achieve lots of volume and extra poof, you have to style it that way.
