How would you describe this look?

This is that perfect in-between, layered length that is not too long and definitely not too short. I gave her a long side-swept bang that she can style to either side or still pull up and away from her face if she chooses.

The color is a golden tone highlight with some darker lowlights that match her natural base color. This makes for a very easy grow out and low maintenance color, while also adding tons of dimension and texture. My favorite thing about this look is how easy it is to style and how effortless the upkeep of the color can be.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I love the golden tones and neutral browns in this color for my ladies with cooler skin tones such as rosy cheeks and blue/green eyes.

This haircut is a great option for many hair textures and can quickly be styled in so many ways. In this picture, we decided for a smooth blow out using a wide round brush and a lightweight mousse for a hint of body.

When on the go, it’s an easy wash and wear kinda cut. It can also quickly be transformed for a night out by curling a few pieces with a one-inch wand for fun and tousled look.

How would you describe this look?

This is my modern take on a classic 1920s bob. It was cut entirely with a razor to help enhance the client’s natural texture and leave for a soft, more airy finish.

My client lets me know that she hardly does anything to her hair on a day to day basis, so my thought during the cutting process was how I could enhance my client’s natural texture as well as create a shape that would flatter her and would not require a ridiculous amount of maintenance.

To style, I put in mousse with a bit of grit then diffused for about ten minutes until the hair was 90% dry. I like to allow my client’s curls to do their natural thing once the hair is almost dry.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I would deeply consider what they want to do to their hair on a day to day basis. Are they going to style it? Are they going to wear their natural texture? Is their texture curly? Straight? How much time do they want to put into their hair day-to-day?

I think bob haircuts are versatile for every hair type – it is the shape and length of the bob that really determines what you want to accent for the person. For my client in this photo, I wanted to enhance their natural features, such as their strong jawbone and awesome high cheekbones. With a chin-length bob, the chin draws more attention because that’s where the weight line of the hair falls. I knew it would look great on my clients because of their natural features.

I also knew they wanted to have a short bang. Having bangs as well creates more balance for someone’s face. My client works in an art museum, so I didn’t want her just to have a basic bob. By adding more texture into the hair through removing weight, she’d be able to have a more versatile look that could be worn super sleek or played into the texture with a little product assistance.

When deciding to cut someone’s hair into a chin-length bob with bangs, really be aware of your features and exactly what you’re showcasing by creating a bold look.

How would you describe this look?

My approach in this cut was that of a very classic short bob. However, based on the photo that she had shown me, I needed to create an edgy, fun look that was sophisticated, yet a little undone.

I decided to do the entire cut with my razor. Using the razor on her coarse hair texture gave it the very “lived in” look that she was looking for.  I also chose to do the majority of this cut dry. I felt that it was important to see how her natural texture would respond to the length.

Once I had my perimeter established and cut, I went ahead with the shampoo and blow-dry. After it was fully dry, I began to customize this bob just for her. I proceeded to use my razor to create new layers, but then very carefully shatter the ends, to make them light and airy.

As far as styling goes, my client prefers to wash her hair at night before bed, about every three days. Every morning she takes a few minutes to straighten her fringe with a small round brush and a blow dryer (as she’s always done). She then adds a little dry shampoo at the roots to give a bit of volume, then finishes it off with Kevin Murphy’s Hair Resort Sea Salt Spray. She occasionally uses her wand or flat iron to add some additional wave to the shorter layers to give it that beachy, fun look. As an elementary school teacher and a mother of a toddler, her time is limited in the mornings. She’s been thrilled with the simplicity of this new style.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Anyone who is considering a drastic change should take the time to decide. Although it may be needed and wanted, I believe it is wise not to make a rush, impulsive decision when it comes to your hair. It’s important to take the time to pour over Pinterest photos, consider the maintenance that the new cut will require, and whether or not their budget and lifestyle can support it. Set up a thorough consultation with your stylist before your appointment. Be open to feedback and together create a style that works for you.

How would you describe this look?

This is a modern texturized bob with a heavy fringe to nicely frame the face and bring attention to the eyes! Warm-toned highlights and a soft shadow root complement her skin tone, eye color and allow for low maintenance to grow out!

I love how much movement is in this cut and how versatile it is for all hair textures! Here, we styled with a 1 1/2″ barrel iron in alternating directions for each section to give more of a beach feel!

Any advice for someone considering it?

This style is great for anyone on the go who may not have a ton of time in the morning for styling! If time is available, some waves can be added along with texturizing and volumizing spray, or it can be worn straight with a shine spray for a sleeker look! The bangs can be worn in a curtain style or swept to the side for a different look!

How would you describe this look?

This look has a natural beach babe feel. It’s so cute and easy! The bangs give an effortless shape that you don’t have to work for.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look is all about the natural wave. My advice to a client that wants to bring their natural wave to life is to keep your hair properly moisturized and to use products that will give your hair hold, definition, and moisture without weighing it down. Wavy hair needs to be encouraged, so a whipped mousse or sea salt spray scrunched in with low manipulation would be a good start to encourage your natural texture.

How would you describe this look?

This look is an effortlessly chic mid-length textured bob with a choppy fringe. I love how it frames her face and the subtle un-done texture and movement it has. Color is her natural color!

Any advice for someone considering it?

I cut this client’s hair using only a straight razor blade and finished the style with Hairstory HairBalm and Undressed. Then, I dried with a diffuser and my hands to play up her natural wave and bend.

Find a stylist who cuts with a straight blade razor and specializes in effortlessly undone hair! I think anyone can wear a bob and fringe, but the length in which you cut either really depends on the face you are framing. Every face is different.

This look is very low maintenance. I would consider having a fringe trim probably every few weeks and full haircut every few months.

How would you describe this look?

I love this short look because of how trendy, sassy, fun, and fresh-looking it is. This guest’s hair is very fine, and I love how much volume movement and texture this hair cut creates.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Guests with fine hair are great candidates for this hairstyle. Shorter hair always looks thicker and fuller. Also, it’s a very versatile haircut and can be customized to any face shape or styling options by increasing or decreasing length and graduation.

With some products like a heat protector cream, you could have it blown out smoothly for a soft look. If you’re feeling a bit more edge and looking for some textured look, I love using texture spray or powder.

Licensed Master Hairstylist @ Lunatic Fringe Salon in Liberty Township, OH


How would you describe this look?

This is a chic layered bob haircut with a subtle highlighted dimension. My favorite thing about this haircut is the texture I created with the razor. The bob is a classic hairstyle, but this texture gives this haircut a fun twist.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This haircut would require 6-8 weeks maintenance. Bringing the length up and creating the layers with a razor would keep the hair density, which would benefit someone if they would like the appearance of fuller hair. If the hair density is high, a lot of weight would need to be removed.  Because the length is short, it could make the face shape appear wider than it is.

This haircut is great with a large round brush blow-dry or some simple beach waves or natural curl. I would use a blow-dry primer and a volumizing mousse with a large round brush to achieve this look.

Layered Inverted Bob with Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Megan Kushner
Hair Artist @ The Color Room in Northfield, NJ


How would you describe this look?

This is an inverted bob with bangs. I love this haircut because it’s so versatile! This cut can go from super conservative to super modern – it all depends on personal style. Everyone loves a good bob!

The color I chose for my client here enhances my client’s coloring and her eyes and goes great with the cut as well. I always think of the big picture – the whole look!

Any advice for someone considering it?

I would definitely consider face shape, hair texture, and lifestyle when considering this style. This client happens to have medium to fine, straight hair, so it works really well on her!

I also always look at any cowlicks or how high or low hairlines are. These come into play when considering the maintenance. It’s probably not the haircut for someone who has very thick or curly hair and doesn’t want to blow it out very often. I used a thickening balm by Unite to blow this client out, keeping it full on top but straighter on the ends for a modern and sleek look!
