Consider a simple, sleek, blonde bob with a fringe. The hairstyle gets its solid look from the blunt cut and full bang. Its chin-length cut suits most face shapes, adding a stylish and current touch. For a smooth and straight finish, use a medium round brush and a blow dryer.

#7: Silver Bob with Curtain Bangs

You can get a silver bob with curtain bangs. Silver tones in your hairstyle can modernize your look. Choosing a slightly beveled bob with curtain bangs can highlight your best cheekbone features. Wearing a classic bob with a middle part can give you a youthful look. This hairstyle complements heart, round, and oval face shapes.

#8: Graduated Short Crop for Fine Hair

A graduated short crop is excellent for fine hair. You can add volume to a short bob on fine hair by using a graduated cutting technique. Be sure to keep the hair blunt and fuller near the temples. Over-layering can make it look thinner.

#9: Icy Blonde Short Hair with Jagged Ends

Wearing your hair in an icy blonde style is chic and trendy. Adding a few texturized pieces to create jagged ends keeps your bob fresh and stylish. A slight angle in your haircut can also flatter and frame your face. Take care not to make your hair too ‘stacked’ or angled. That way, your hair will maintain a modern shape. To enhance the texture and the look of the jagged ends, use styling products like texturizing sprays. My favorite is the Balloon Dry Volume spray from R and Co.

#16: Blonde Balayage Bob with Wispy Layers

Try the stylish shape of a blonde balayage bob with wispy layers. The short bob cut suits all hair types. It’s also easy to style. Having long layers at the top of your head and textured layers at the ends shapes your hairstyle beautifully. The long layers also provide a good base for balayage highlights. A slight graduation in the nape will add even more impact to your bob. To style your cut, blow dry and add a slight bend in the ends with your curling tool.

#17: Short Angled Cut with Choppy Layers

The style involves a short, angled cut with choppy layers. People with finer hair and looking for a blunt, textured end will benefit from the shattered bob. Creating a blunt, choppy end still allows you to retain a full hair outline. You can add some additional chops for texture. Fine hair doesn’t need layers. The texture created around the outline provides all the necessary movement.

Suit Your Hair Type

Stela explains a bob isn’t just one size fits all. “Not every bob haircut is the same,” she says. Your lifestyle, hair texture, length, face shape and neck length come into play. For fine hair, go for some layering. It gives the illusion of fuller hair. Or opt for a straight blunt cut for a sleek look. Have thick or curly hair? Stela recommends some layering and thinning. This will stop hair growing out into a triangle shape.

Fit Your Face Shape

Your cut should also flatter your face shape. “For rounder faces, let the bob fall past your jaw line. It will elongate your face,” says Stela. A fringe and some layers will give fuller appearance to longer face shapes, making it appear rounder.

Styling Tips and Tricks

When it comes to styling your bob, personal preference rules. But Stela gives this bit of advice. “Always start with some heat protection spray and leave in moisturizer.” She also recommends a fast blow-drying spray for thick hair. “Then pick a product that will help you control what you don’t want your hair to do.” This could mean using a smoothing lotion for waves or curls. Or a root booster for volume. Want to enhance your curl? Use a moisturizing lotion and curl-activating sprays. Stela’s final tip? Experiment to find the best look for you.
