A jaw-length choppy bob with bangs is a short haircut with textured layers. It adds volume and movement to the tresses, which means no more flat, boring short hairstyles!
Stylist Marion Castang from Vancouver, Canada shares an essential tip if you want a choppy bob. “Keep as much length as possible at first, and same for the layers,” she states. You can always cut more if you like the result.
A bob haircut can be a really drastic change. Avoid cutting the hair too short as it may look awful and can be a nightmare to style.
Consultation is significant before getting a chop. “Ask your stylist to adapt the bob to your face shape and hair type. Get tips on how you must style your locks according to your hair type and texture,” Castang explains.
A short choppy cut is very convenient to style. You can either do a quick blow-dry or iron styling. It would always look so chic, too!

A classic haircut to consider is a graduated bob with thin layers. Known also as a stacked bob, this timeless haircut is great for women over 50.

Consider a shaggy French bob with curtain bangs if you’re already short, but want some more life to your haircut.

#14: Voluminous Choppy Bob with Layers
Think grand if you’re going for a voluminous choppy bob with layers. To take this choppy haircut to the next level, some serious texturizing and razor techniques are necessary to give this layered haircut a ton of edge. For styling, use a pomade or working spray to piece the ends and fingerstyle.
