#3: The Inverted Blunt Cut

The inverted blunt cut is a hairstyle mainstay. The longer framing at the front is a universal compliment to any face shape, and the shorter length at the neck is also great for any season. In warmer months, this crop will keep you cool- and in cooler months, your hair won’t get caught up in hats or scarves.

#4: Inverted Bob with Side Parting

Inverted bobs with side-parting cut past the shoulders are a great way to keep the length and create a style with longer hair. Longer layers and thinning help maintain weight at the bottom of the hair while still creating movement.

A medium inverted choppy bob creates a looser effect on the hair, allowing weight to be removed from heavier hair types. Texturizing techniques are used instead of layering to free the hair and give it a lighter feel. Adding some super loose waves will finish off this look.

A sleek medium to long inverted stacked bob is short at the back and gets longer at the front. This trend proves that growing out short hair should never be troubling. This inverted and stacked bob cut gives off a stylish and versatile vibe. You can style your long locks in the front with texture and waves today or flaunt it with your natural straight hair the next day.

This medium to long inverted stacked bob is a graduated bob. It was created by hairstylist Jen Herber of San Diego, CA.

“This is not a low-maintenance cut,” says Herber. “Your medium inverted bob must be styled daily to show the shape and angle of the cut truly. It’s not a wash-and-wear hair cut unless you have straight hair. The cut can work on almost all women; it’s just a matter of adjusting the front length to flatter the face shape.”

#24: Brown Inverted Bob for Coarse Hair

This is the perfect medium-length inverted bob for women with thick, coarse hair.

“This inverted bob keeps things short enough that you don’t have to worry about the dreaded flip out that some longer, shoulder-length styles run into,” says hairstylist Katelyn Phillis of Dayton, OH

Katelyn’s best advice? “This haircut is great for anyone who wants shorter hair but is worried it wouldn’t flatter their face. You can keep it nice and short in the back and enough length in the front so you have more room to customize the face frame to enhance (or minimize) certain facial features. ”

Want to upgrade your fine and dark locks with a trend that demands effortless styling? You got that here! Featuring the perfect layered, medium inverted bob haircut for fine hair. You’ll also love how the layered bob can frame your round face shape!

A medium inverted bob is a haircut between the collarbone and shoulders in the front and gradually gets shorter in the back. The length of this inverted cut is making its way to the top of the most requested bob hairstyles worldwide.

It’s super stylish – with a sharp angle from back to front, giving off a beautiful, edgy vibe. You’ll look picture-perfect no matter what you wear! Plus, it’s also super practical. The short length at the back makes it a great, low-maintenance look. It’s one amazing way to take the weight off of your mane without compromising its length! However, if you’re not interested in such a short style, talk with your stylist about a medium to long inverted bob cut instead.

Master stylist Dani King from Pennsylvania has advice for those who want this cut. “Getting a mid-length inverted bob means the back will be shorter,” she says. This means you have to say goodbye to long ponytails and buns! “It may take some to get used to! Expect that your styling practices will differ because of the change in lengths,” she adds.

Don’t think that you’ll have less freedom in styling! In fact, there is a long list of everyday hair styles and even updos you can choose from. Please look at how Ashley Benson, Mila Kunis, and Rachel Adams did theirs to perfection!

Number 1 on Dani’s list of go-to styling products is Joico Kpak Restorative Styling Oil. “I love this product because you can use it before and after you style the hair, leaving it shiny and smooth. With this product, you will not need to worry about frizz throughout the day either!” And who doesn’t want that?!
