50 Razor Cut Bob Haircut Ideas for a Textured Look

Razor cut bobs are a great way to give your hair a modern, textured look! Here, you’ll learn exactly what it is and how it’s done. Then, I’ll show you the best examples of how to get this trendy jagged bob cut.

What is a Razor Cut Bob?

It’s a type of haircut that uses a straight razor to create a textured, choppy look. This technique involves cutting the hair in vertical strokes to create a tapered effect rather than cutting the hair straight across using scissors. This type of cut helps to add volume and texture to your hair while creating more precise lines and angles than a regular hair clipper or scissors. Razored bobs typically lie between the neck and shoulders, resulting in textured and wispy ends, giving a sharper, feathered look. Be careful: razor cuts can cause damage to the hair if not done correctly.

Aside from shags, a razor cut can create strong shapes as well. Utah-based hairdresser Renee Paris educates us on the best ways to rock this bob. Her main tip is to consider face shape and hair texture.

If you want this look, ask yourself these three questions: “Do your curls need more rounding in shape? Does your straight hair need a heavier-weight line in the front? Is your frizz a concern?”

Being a texture maniac, she loves a great texture-finishing spray. “This is a great way to give your hair that second-day look we love so much. My top three are those from Davines, Oribe, and Kevin Murphy.”

The bedhead style allows you to own that get-up-and-go look but with some effort! Paris tells us that bobs are work. “I recommend keeping your shape and getting regular cuts every 6 to 8 weeks. All that volume and tousled curls need a blowdryer, the right products, and a hair iron,” she says.

Lastly, “make sure a short style will enhance your life rather than create an issue,” Paris advises. Lastly, “ask yourself if you like putting your hair up in a ponytail. If yes, then a lob could be a better choice.”

#1: Cute Jaw-Length Bob

We love a cute jaw-length bob! The best way to change your bob is by adding movement, texture, or a cute bang. One of the easiest ways to add texture to hair is to get a bob with a razor cut. Be sure to ask for a stylist with razor-cutting experience, as this technique can go very wrong with someone inexperienced. Be prepared to style a razor-sharp bob cut daily, as you will have some bedhead in the morning. A simple mist of water, styling spray, and a quick re-style with the blow dryer will do.

#2: Pixie Mullet with Soft Bangs

Mullets are trendy again, but this time they’re worn in a softer style. The contrast between short and long sections isn’t as extreme. To create a casual look, start by framing the face with cute, rounded, feathered bangs and soft layers over the ears. Keep styling products to a minimum and avoid making the hair too spiky.

#3: Wavy Short Hair with Jagged Ends

A wavy short hairstyle with jagged ends makes a unique style statement. One of a razor cut’s best perks is its effortless low maintenance. Due to the textured ends, your hair will grow softer and become more beautiful over time. The cut enhances naturally wavy hair, providing more bends and flips. With a low-maintenance balayage complementing your cut, your style will feel natural and easy.

#4: Center-Parted Orange Blonde Bob

Orange-blonde hair is trending. Its color is richer than most blonde shades, and it looks good on many skin tones. I’d recommend pairing this bright hair color with a simple haircut to achieve an understated look. A center parting looks stylish on bob haircuts because it balances the hair’s volume, creating a simple yet chic look.

#5: Brunette Bob with Textured Ends

Revive your brunette bob by adding texture. Layers will result in more ends, creating more texture and movement. This tactic works best with finer hair, giving it a fuller look. Add a few waves to the top and gently brush to provide a wave. Texturizing sprays work well as a final touch. They are lighter and drier, ensuring they do not weigh the hair down.

#6: Voluminous Short Layered Cut

One of my favorite looks is a cute, rounded bob hairstyle with layers and plenty of texture. Display your curly hair’s beauty by choosing an angled bob cut. Add a layered look that starts thin at the nape and gradually becomes more substantial, connecting the front and the back. Accentuate your face and eyes with textured, wavy bangs that blend seamlessly into the overall wavy hairstyle.

#7: Bixie Mullet with Middle-Parted Bangs

Mullets are made lengthier at the nape but stay shorter at the sides and top. This grants a bixie feel. Maintain the length above the ears at the sides with smoother layers. Also, a split fringe can add a cute, soft touch. To keep the mullet in shape, you must stay up-to-date with regular trims.

#8: Subtle Layers and Framing Bangs

Subtly layered hair and framing bangs are stylish. I love a razor cut on stick straight fine hair. It truly brings life into the hair with more texture and lift. A razor can create jagged edges. It can also be used to achieve a super soft fringe. The razor cut’s versatility allows it to mold to each unique style.

Start with a tousled wavy bob with a side part. Use a razor cut to boost your natural texture. This cut will reveal the waves and make your hair bouncy. The full shape features many waves. It suits heart, oval, and diamond face shapes and looks great on them. For additional volume, try a deep side part. Tuck back the fewer hair side or let it down for an adorable look.

There are techniques to create a solid shape in your bob and make the layers softer. As a hairstylist, I trim the edges using scissors. This provides a robust and attractive shape. With this hairstyle, we can reduce some volume to soften its overall look. At this stage, I use my razor to cut out the extra volume and make the layers softer, allowing for better movement and flair.

#11: Two-Toned Lob with Choppy Ends

The key factor of texture is using a sharp razor. The sharp razor will slice and slither through the hair in a way that benefits the hairstyle. The razor helps to carve out weight, promoting natural movement and waves in the hair. The cutting technique creates unique pointy ends and soft wispy layers. The hairstyle grows beautifully, allowing more time between cuts and adapting to most hair textures.

Add curtain bangs that graze your eyes and brows. This combo brings a gorgeous balance to the face. Style your hair using ‘Rake’ by GM Reverie. Apply it by scrunching it into your hair and let it air dry.
