A jaw-length bob is a short haircut that grazes the jawline area. It looks cute in a low bun or a claw clip. It’s fun to wear with effortless waves, creating a trendy and flirty look!
Stylist Chelsie Meyers of Dallas, TX, suggests this cut to women with fine to medium hair types. It would still work with thick hair, yet more effort in styling would be needed.
Shorter hair is a commitment. “You’ll immediately feel the hair when it starts to grow out. It’s trickier to manage once it sits on the shoulders, so you must be willing to style it,” says Meyers.
Give some of your time to consult a trusted stylist. Ask if any modification can make your short bob easier to style and maintain.
Meyers loves a bob cut when looking soft yet very blunt. She creates an undercut and a lot of point-cutting on the ends.
“I don’t do a bunch of layering on the top. I like to keep most layers internal to achieve a blunt effect that still has a movement,” Meyers adds.
