#1: Long Mahogany A-Line Bob with Layers

If you’re searching for a fresh, striking look, consider a long mahogany A-line bob. Its face-framing layers give it a chic edge. To request an A-line haircut, begin by specifying the length of the front pieces. This will guide the overall and back length of the cut. To add more lift and define your face shape better, consider incorporating face-framing texture into your haircut.

The lob, or long bob, has numerous layers, giving it an inverted, stacked look. The A-line features a drastic transition from short at the back to long at the front. Additionally, the lob is dyed a rich, shiny black.

#4: Dark-Rooted Red A-Line Hair

An inverted bob has a pretty traditional a-line approach. It keeps the transition from short to long on the less extreme side. Its ends are red, and the root color is darker.

A traditional inverted bob style cuts some layers to reduce bulk along the outer edges of the haircut. The haircut also includes slight trims around the face for a subtle framing effect.

A very long, subtly graduated inverted bob or lob is added. It’s styled to have a sleek and sophisticated look.

#7: Bronde Hair with Long Choppy Bob Cut

Bronde hair is ticking all the looks for the season. This shade gives a subtle lightening effect without being too dramatic. It is a versatile color that suits many people. A long layered bob, which increases in length at the front, showcases the ribbons of color, especially when some layers are worn in loose waves. Keep tones fresh by using a color-safe shampoo.

#8: Soft Tousled Straight Long Bob

You can achieve a soft, tousled, straight, long bob! With some styling, smooth and sharp bobs can have a new look. For a sleeker finish, use a smoothing serum and your flat iron. To get a tousled look, finish styling with an extra-large round brush and some dry texture spray.

Side-Parted Graduated Long A-Line Bob Cut

#9: Side-Parted Graduated Bob Cut

The graduated bob exhibits a smooth transition from shorter to longer lengths. This hairstyle is cut with minimal layers. It’s also styled with a side part.

#10: Straight Inverted Thick Lob

For thick hair, going for an A-line bob is a good idea to prevent the hair from becoming too thick around the jaw and rounding the face. The A-line shape sits higher at the back, allowing for longer layers into the nape that naturally form a beveled shape, resting under instead of sticking out. To prevent the hair from becoming frizzy, keep it smooth and straight while drying.

#11: Effortless Graduated Long Bob

If you want a classic, effortless, and chic look, a bob cut is the best choice. For a more modern feel, opt for a hairstyle with higher back and sides that drop lower, thus giving a semblance of longer hair. A useful tip is to regularly trim your hair because when the hair at the back grows longer, it naturally tends to flick out.

#12: Long Bobbed Hair with Angled Layers

You can still feel that your hair has some length around the face, even when it’s short with an angled bob. This type of cut is layered into the neckline, forming a beloved rounded shape at the bottom. Avoid having the sides of your hair too long. Your haircut should be well-balanced. Drying your hair with a round brush turned in towards your face and neck imparts a neat, sleek look.

#13: Asymmetrical Lob with Deep Side Part

An asymmetrical bob always looks fantastic with a deep side part. Other styles can also suit this haircut, but the deep side part blends even better with the front-lengthened face frame.

#14: Brown Lob with Graduated Layers

You can’t go wrong with a brown long bob with gradual hair layers. Always in style, simple to take care of, and easy to arrange, this classic long bob looks beautiful on almost anyone.

#15: A-Line Inverted Lob

An a-line inverted lob is superb for fine, straight hair. The lob emphasizes the fullness of your hair, giving it a crisp, blunt line. If your face is round, an a-line perimeter lob with a middle part can make it look elongated. Styling with a round brush or a flat iron results in extra sleek, smooth vibes.

#16: A-Line Bronde Long Bob

The bronde color ends with a slightly darker root, which transitions seamlessly into the rest of the hair. The hair is also cut into an inverted, slightly angled bob that is longer.

Neck-Length Middle Part Long A-Line Bob
Instagram @zazzlesalons

#17: Neck-Length Middle Part Bob

A sleek A-line bob works well if you’re going for a statement look. Have it cut slightly higher at the nape without graduation. Gradually, it should extend in length towards the face. Wear your bob with a middle part for a bold look to create cool girl vibes.

#18: Very Long Bob on Dark Hair

Your nape area must be short when you opt for a lengthy angled bob. This prevents the shape from appearing boxy or square. Always discuss your desired side length with your stylist. They can then guide you on how short the back should be. Pro tip: Dry the ends of the hair underneath for a charming look.

#19: Dark-Angled Bob with Subtle Highlights

A dark angled bob can be worn higher at the nape and longer at the front. This style offers the best of both short and long hair. You can add subtle shades to give interest and depth. If your hair is fine, ask your stylist for a blunter shape and thicker color placement. This can make your hair appear fuller.

#20: Copper Brown Sleek Lob

A lob, also known as a long bob, looks like a regular bob but longer. The aim is to choose the perfect length that prevents the hair from flipping when it touches the shoulder. This style requires a neat, uncomplicated cut. A bold color choice such as copper can boost shine. Remember that a lob requires more frequent trims than a shorter haircut to keep the style intact.

Collarbone-Length Inverted A-Line Bob

#21: Collarbone-Length Inverted Bob

If you want shorter hair but feel nervous about it, an A-line bob that reaches your collarbone could be a good choice. This hairstyle is shorter at the back, which gives the feel of having shorter hair. Yet, the longer lengths at the sides keep the hair around your face and shoulders. You should choose a style with a bold, thick baseline and a few layers. This style will give your hair a swing look.

#22: Sharp A-Line Lob with Stacked Layers

A true A-line bob has a distinct shorter and longer point. It’s a very detailed style and requires a lot of skill to cut. A round beveled shape layer creates a full, stacked appearance instead of adding texture. I highly recommend drying this style with a round brush, directing it towards the nape and face.

#23: A-Line Haircut with Blunt Bangs

Blunt short bangs make any haircut look better. They frame your lovely eyes and open up your face. They give off a vibe of confidence and strength, perfect if you want to stand out. Pair these bangs with a prominent A-line bob haircut for a sharp and sleek look.

Maroon Long A-Line Bob with Center Part
Instagram @hudobivnik

#24: Maroon A-Line Bob with Center Part

A-line bobs work well with a center part. This is because the hair has equal weight on both sides, which gives a balanced look. A rich maroon hue gives the hair a fresh and modern look. To maintain the depth and tone of the color, use a color-safe shampoo.

#25: Low-Maintenance Classic A-Line Bob

You’ll look amazing with a low-maintenance, classic a-line bob. Alongside the single-length layers, your unique style will stand out. You can easily blow dry it with a large round brush, but ensure the lower part of the hair remains straight and not curled under. This hairstyle is great for those with round face shapes, but those with narrow face shapes should avoid this style.

#26: Light Brown Straight Lob

If you choose a simple color, a bold cut will complement it well. Lobs are perfect because they transition from short to long, creating visual interest with a unique outline. For maximum impact, wear the lobs straight. I suggest using a shine mist to create a glossy, mirror-like finish.

Messy Long A-Line Bob for Fine Hair

#27 Messy Long A Line Bob for Fine Hair

Consider a dimensional layered bob. It’s great for people with fine to medium hair. It makes them look like they have more hair! My favorite thing about layered bobs is that everything is subtle. The color has a soft dimension, and the layers are light, but they stand out more with the curl we added.

#28: A-Line Bob Cut with Blunt Ends

An a-line bob cut with blunt ends is an eye-catching hairstyle. To create the most dramatic appearance, I recommend not incorporating any layering. Avoiding layers will result in a smooth, one-length finish. Ask your stylist to cut the nape slightly shorter for a beautiful, modern shape. Dry your hair using a large round brush while ensuring the hair’s outline remains straight, not rounded.

Long Asymmetrical Bob

#29 Long Asymmetrical A-Line Bob

A few uneven angles can turn your look from bad to good! A long a-line bob cut looks good on thick hair, with all the center parts defining your face shape even more.

#31: Long Stacked A-Line Bob Hairstyle

This angled lob is a long a-line haircut with slight layering. The layering was done with texturizing shears, which is a great way to add movement to the hair without removing a lot of lengths.

Stacked a-line haircuts for a long bob are perfect for someone who likes the look of a bob but wants to avoid committing to the shorter length. I also love the versatility and low-maintenance aspect of the angled cut. The way the cut follows the angle of the chin line makes it flattering on any face shape!

#32: A-Line Lob with Caramel Balayage

The A-line lob with caramel balayage is a fantastic style for women with straight hair. Its layered structure provides just the right volume while keeping the length intact. The caramel balayage adds dimension and warmth to the overall style. It’s a perfect low-maintenance look for those wanting to add spice to their appearance. However, getting the perfect look requires an experienced hairstylist. They can blend the colors seamlessly and create the ideal shape that suits each face shape.

#33: Precision-Cut A-Line Lob

Try this precision a-line lob if you love a blunt cut. Try to avoid adding texture. The best way to keep this look is to book regular in-salon haircuts to keep your edge looking sharp.

#34: Dark Brown Sleek Center-Parted A-Line

This transformative haircut is a dark brown sleek center-parted a-line. If you have been considering leaping to shorter hair, a long bob or a-line haircut is the perfect shape. The best part of this style is the ability to pull your hair back or into a ponytail. It’s still long enough in the front if you’re worried about length. Ask your stylist to keep as much length as possible in the front to maintain a chic shape.

#35: Long A-Line with a Side Part

Doing an a-line bob with a side part is flattering for many face shapes. It adds an extra dimension, making it stand out from other styles. This cut can be tailored to fit any hair texture, so it’s great for styling versatility, too! For added volume and definition, I suggest using a round brush. A smoothing serum is the best product to use with your flat iron. Try Paul Mitchell Superskinny Serum!

#36: Creamy Vanilla Blonde Angled Lob for Straight Hair

Look chic and stunning with a creamy vanilla blonde angled lob for straight hair. This long a-line bob has a sharp shape and looks great on all different hair types. Thinning out at the nape and back is the most effective way to remove bulk and have the cut sit properly. I suggest styling with a big round brush to show off the a-line shape and get a polished look.

#37: Sharply Angled A-Line Bob

An angled a-line bob is a great choice for ladies who want a strong shape but not too short. Remember that the length needs to accommodate the shoulders and might flip out if not cut short enough, but the front can be left long.

For best results, blow-dry with a large round brush, creating a straight edge, not rounded under. As an option, you can curl your bob with a wand for a softer finish.

#38: Sleek Jet Black A-Line Lob

You’ll look sharp in a sleek jet black a-line lob. Having your hair cut above the shoulders can help you get the clean line of this shape. If you want to move the part around, make sure there is a light layer in the bottom to allow for overlap. When you blow dry your hair, I suggest a large metal barrel round brush for the best control. Jet black color is a great accent and will reflect the light for tremendous shine.

#39: Long Lived-In A-Line Bob

A long, lived-in, a-line bob can be helpful for ladies who don’t want a high-maintenance haircut. While this style of bob may not require frequent appointments, remember to at least schedule every 6-8 weeks. Additionally, remember to ask if your salon offers clean-up appointments, which can take less time while still keeping your cut fresh.

#40: Shoulder-Length A-Line Lob

It looks like a bob at the back but is a lob upfront. It’s the kind of two-faced long a-line bob haircut you want.

#46: Long Inverted A-line Bob Haircut

I love the softness in an inverted a-line lob haircut. It’s easy to work with and requires very little maintenance. The sleekness adds perfect movement to the hair and accents the minimal layers beautifully. The cut itself requires very little maintenance as it grows out.

It’s perfect for anyone looking for the first step in making their hair shorter. Using a wider barrel curling iron, the cut pairs beautifully with a soft curl. Anyone looking to add a tousled look should pair a-line bobs with a texturizing spray. Anyone looking to keep the shape should expect to get it cut every 6-8 weeks. However, if you want to chop your hair and let it grow out, a blunt lob cut grows out smoothly.

#47: Red Medium-Length Hair with Choppy Angled Layers

A long red a-line bob with fringe and choppy layers is very trendy and fun! I added a lot of layering to add volume and movement. She also has a shorter side bang that I texturized as well. It is one of my favorite haircuts to give clients. The color is a glossy, berry red, bringing out her gorgeous complexion and spunky personality.

One reason long a-line bob hairstyles are one of my favorite cuts is that it should be easy for my clients to style at home. Depending on the hair texture, they can add a texture spray, style it, and go. Other times – they can smooth it out with or without volume. Anybody can wear an a-line cut and style, but the color is for the bold and fierce! 😉 If clients are willing to come in for regular touch-ups at the salon and follow at-home color care – they can keep this beautiful, shiny color for weeks.

#48: A-Line Lob with Bangs

A long a-line bob with bangs is modern chic. My favorite thing about an a-line lob is the clean angle with the bangs. It gives your basic shoulder-length hair an edgy style, and you have versatile styling options!

Think about your natural hair state, whether it’s curly/textured or straight, and how much work you might need to put into it. Those with curly or wavy hair must put more effort into achieving a lob style.

#49: Long Choppy A-Line Bob

The a-line inverted lob cut is a huge hit right now for multiple reasons. Inverted lob cuts are easy to maintain daily while the cut grows out. The “invisible layers” accent the blunt shape while adding movement. The invisible layers can easily be tousled for texturing or smoothed for a sleek look.

If you’re considering an inverted lob, I always suggest starting with a comfortable length. Remember, you can always make it into a short a-line bob cut. A lob haircut can easily be worn straight, curly, or wavy. One thing to keep in mind if you constantly throw your hair back is that you will only be able to do a half updo. It can still be cute and fashionable or keep your hair out of your face.

If you want to keep the style of the cut, I recommend getting it cut every 6-8 weeks. As far as styling products go, I would pair every lob with a heat protectant (essential for every hair type) to protect your hair no matter how you are styling it. A texture spray is a good investment if you like the tousled beachy look, as it gives the hair a gritty feel without making it dirty.

#50: Dark Long A-Line Bob with Highlights

Opt for a long a-line bob style with light wispy textured ends and soft layers. I gave her baby lights and balayaged her previously lightened ends to get an overall lighter appearance. Then, I topped it off with a root shadow to give it a defused look and styled her with light curls to give her a soft, tasseled, ready-to-go vibe. When my clients want an a-line bob cut, it’s important to consider their texture type. For instance, if it’s coarse, you should consider more texturizing; if it’s finer, you could add more layers.

I would also consider the face shape, neckline, and shoulders to visualize if this is the right style for them. If it is, it’s also important to inquire if your client is a wash-and-go person. If so, give your client tips to achieve this look at home. I love soft-curling the ends with my Babyliss curling iron and spraying some Wella Eimi glam mist at the end to give it a gorgeous shine for those glammed-out nights. I also spray some R+Co Trophy to add texture and shine with a flexible hold for those ready-to-go active days.

A long A-line bob is a mid-length bob haircut short at the back and sharply longer in the front. Expert stylists and celebrities recently wear long A-line bobs for their high-fashion image, amazing versatility, and more!

Topping the list of stars who are fans of the A-line lob are Taraji Henson, Rosamund Pike, Jessica Chastain, and Gwyneth Paltrow. A fan-favorite, it’s super wearable because of the length you can have and style according to your taste.

Take note to check your face shape and neck length first so you’ll know whether to create an angle that is either slight or bold. Long and oval faces are almost always the best types of faces to match with a medium cut.

Are you planning to stay low-maintenance? If that’s your case, you’re on the right track because a mid-length haircut can last up to 3 months between trims. Say hello to this year’s best long A-line bob haircuts.
