A jaw-length edgy choppy bob is a short haircut with textured layers and jagged ends. The best thing? It demands minimal styling maintenance!
Stylist Darlene Duran from Dallas, TX suggests this cut if starting a healthy hair journey. “It’s great for women with long damaged hair from excessive heat and color services,” she states.
A choppy cut is made with internal layers, which work great on ladies with voluminous curls. Duran adds, “The internal layers can make fine hair appear thicker, too. They’re also essential for thick hair to take out weight, allowing it to lay properly.”
When choosing your new look, like an edgy choppy bob, your natural texture and lifestyle are things to bear in mind. Do you think you can manage to have short hair considering your daily activities? What’s the shortest length you can go?
Shorter hair requires the most upkeep. I recommend a trim every six weeks and no use of heat styling. If you can’t avoid these hot tools, Duran suggests applying a heat protectant and using a hair mask weekly. The bottom line is you can’t have this choppy look without your willingness to keep it in great shape.

#1: Jaw-Grazing French Bob for Curly Hair
A French bob for curly hair has been a popular request in many salons as of lately! This specific bob hairstyle is very similar to a normal chin-shoulder length bob but is a much shorter haircut. When cut properly, and close to ear length, this French bob creates a wedged appeal. If you have curly hair and are looking for something that will take off weight, and give a whisky illusion with low maintenance, the French bob is the cut for you!
#2: Side-Parted Airy Bob Style
A side-parted bob is a classy, effortless short cut that I recommend if you need an easy new look. This edgy style will show off your beautiful long neck, and sharp jawline, and of course, a slight tuck behind the ear will make those cheekbones pop. Style with a deep part and your natural wave for a sexy undone finish.
#3: Sleek Jaw-Length Bob on Straight Hair
A jaw-length bob is the definition of elegance. You will have to style your haircut straight to get a perfect round finish creating the ultimate hair goal look. Bob haircuts are so versatile when it comes to styling, adding a cute little tuck behind the ear will show off your stunning earring while giving you a sexy finish to your sleek style.
#4: Wavy Bob with Jagged Ends
You should consider a wavy bob with jagged ends if you are searching for a trendy style. Ask your stylist for minimal layers and point cutting in the ends, and you’ll be able to style your bobbed hair easily. You can try air drying if you have some waves or try curling your long layers with a wand. You’ll want to finish with some wax for a tousled and messy finish. No matter your face shape this short hairstyle compliments women well.
#5: Straight Messy Bob with Choppy Bangs
You’ll want to try a straight messy bob. If you have a round face shape, a jaw-length haircut with bangs is an excellent choice. You will have an easy time styling this cut if you have a straight hair texture. Ask your stylist for layering throughout your bob, and you will be able to blow dry with your hands. You can finish with a wax product, such as Wax Blast by Redken for incredible results.
#6: Asymmetrical Undercut Bob
When looking to change up your style, try an asymmetrical undercut bob to really add some edginess to your look. An a-line bob is perfect for women with a strong jawline, as the baseline of the cut should follow that line. Adding an undercut not only creates an edgy hairstyle but also removes weight if you have thick hair and want to try this style.
#7: Tousled Inverted Bob for Thick Hair
A tousled inverted bob is a great choice if you have thick, full hair. Adding layers will give you a choppy cut effect that will remove bulk and help you create beautiful waves when styling. When you are ready to style this short bob, I would recommend using a flat iron for a beachy, effortless look finishing with a textured salt spray for the final touch.
#8: Inverted Choppy Bob with a Fringe
An inverted, choppy bob with fringe has many styling options and is one of the most popular jaw-length hairstyles. If you have fine hair you may consider an inverted bob since it consists of many layers, which creates a fuller hairstyle.
#9: Short Stacked Bob with Blunt Bangs
A short, stacked bob with a blunt bang is an edgy style if you’re looking for a unique switch-up. If you have hair on the thicker side I would recommend this haircut, since you have a full round finish. For women over 50, you definitely want to ask your hairstylist for layers to add different textures and dimensions to your choppy hairstyle.
#10: Undone Blunt Bob for Round Faces
When considering a new haircut for a round face, try a jaw-length style to frame your face. The undone blunt bob is perfect for a round face because it brings more attention to the eyes and cheekbones, instead of the jawline or anything below. A choppy haircut has a lot of texture which will amplify the movement of your hair, but also add some edginess to your style.
#11: Textured Layers and Curtain Bangs for Square Faces
Wear your hair with textured layers and curtain bangs if you’re looking for a style that compliments a square face shape. If you aren’t sure what face shape you have but know your current style isn’t working, talk to your stylist. Curtain bangs soften the corners of your forehead, and a jawline shape balances well. You can style your edgy haircut with a medium round brush, and for versatility, you can tuck it back or wear it towards the face. You’ll need to see your stylist for reshaping about every five weeks.
#12: Graduated Bob for Women with Thin Hair
Even women with thin hair can rock a graduated bob. Ask your stylist to leave the layers longer to maintain the weight of your hair and keep it looking the thickest it possibly can. Women over 60 will look fantastic with minimal layers, creating a wispy shape. You’ll want to make sure you use a volumizing product and make sure you dry with your hands. A round brush will remove too much body from your hair. A key point is to keep your finished style closer to the head shape so you cannot see through it.
#13: Short Feathered Layers and Micro Bangs for Fine Hair
If you have fine hair, try short feathered layers and micro bangs, and make your hair appear thicker. A jaw-length cut will boost your volume and is a sexy length. Make sure you ask your stylist for minimal layers to retain the weight of your hair. A short style with shattered bangs is easy for you to manage and works well on most face shapes. Make sure you add a volumizing lotion and use your hands to dry, not a brush, to promote the most bounce.
#14: Jaw-Length Layered Bob for Wavy Hair
Get the beachy hair of your dreams with a jaw-length layered bob. A bob cut will make your waves spring up with ease to give an effortless beachy vibe. Choppy style layers will give your hair so much movement and bounce. Go ahead and show off your beautiful tousled locks.
#15: Short Bob with Razored Layers and Loose Waves
Consider a short bob with razored layers and loose waves if you’re growing out a shorter crop. Bobs are a good hair idea when you’re on the grow because you can let your shorter layers catch up to each other. Razored layers make this more of an edgy cut. Style with loose waves and Eufora Details dry texture spray for all the sass.
