A side-part bob haircut is any bob hairstyle that features a parting to one side. The parting can be small or very strong to open up the other side and can feature a weave or sew-in with a closure. The parted bob creates a focal point on one side and is an awesome style to show braiding, an undercut, or just your best side.
There’s something about side-part bob haircuts that give off a fresh, modern, and younger look! I’m in love with this cut and style this year for women of all hair types and ages.
Before your next hair appointment, check out these trendy photos of the best side-part bob hairstyles and haircuts!
#1: A-Line Bob with Side-Part
An A-line bob is a trendy/modern look. Between the sharp A-line, the graduation, and the texture in the layers, this cut is for women who want to rock a fun and trendy style. When styling this cut, I was going for a sleek beveled look. The best part of this look is the severity of the A-line. Even though the lengths are so drastically different they still can be blended.
If you’re a lady who comes in every 4-6 weeks, try this side-parted bob. This cut will look at its best between those weeks. It’s great for women who are trying to elongate their face and make it appear that they have more volume. It’s ideal to style with fine/medium thick hair that is already straight or has some bend/texture to it. It will take you 10-20 minutes to style with this hair type. To get side-part hairstyles that look like this, mist a volume spray in the crown area near the root and just flip your head upside down and dry that root a bit to get volume.

“I point cut the perimeter for texture and added long layers, chipping into the body of the hair to create movement because she has very thick hair. We did a soft fringe to accentuate her eyes,” Ronschke explains.
Ronschke wanted this style to be effortless. She used “Davine’s curl primer to set her wave and diffused it because she usually air dries her hair.” Ronschke then added some beach waves to the top layer and finished with Davine’s medium hairspray.

#28: Lived-In Side Part Bob Haircut
A lived-In side part bob haircut is a natural way to accent ones “best side.” Hairlines often part naturally left, right, and sometimes off-centered. However, side part hairstyles are great ways to give the silhouette body and height. A pro tip while blow-drying is to direct the hair opposite to the preferred part and once dried, settle the hair into place for added support and void from the hair falling limp through the day.
#29: Very Deep Side Part Bob
Consider a very deep side part bob if you have fine hair and are looking for ways to make your hair look thicker. The deepest side part will lift your hair at the root for mega volume, especially if you work in a thickening product such as Kenra Root Lifting Spray 13 before you blow-dry. Keep in mind, that your hairstylist will need to know if you plan to flip your part around or always part on the same side before they cut the front pieces. Don’t be afraid to ask for the comb so you can show them exactly where you like to part on the side so they can be precise with the cut.
