A textured bob with bangs is a short-length haircut with jagged layers and an undone style. Whether you’re quite a bookworm or the next big influencer, this chop suggests you are anything but basic!

💡 Key Things to Know First
- Choose a hairstyle that reflects who you are. Mostly, you need confidence for this type of style.
- One drawback is you can’t just throw up your short hair into a cute messy bun.
- Go through a lengthy consultation to know more.
- Discuss what length will complement your face shape. Heart shape face looks great with a shaggy lob. For a square face, you may want to soften the angles by adding a few textured pieces on the edges of the bangs.
- Ask for at-home styling tips and products, so you can achieve your desired look day to day.
- Maintenance means coming in every 8-10 weeks with bang trims in between.
For some fresh ideas, have a look at these pictures of trendy textured bobs with bangs.
Blonde Textured Bob with Side Bangs
As a hairstylist, I would recommend a medium textured bob with bangs for a client that has wavy hair. Especially if they want to wear natural. A shorter length will enhance the hair’s movement giving it a fuller shape. A side parting will create a look of volume, meaning a side fringe can be added for softness. Don’t over-dry your hair as this can cause fizz. I recommend using a texture or curl-enhancing product on wet hair.
Middle Part Short Hair with Natural Curls
A curly bob is a great way to wear your natural hair and add layers to enhance the movement and give a fuller shape. I would highly recommend not over-drying your locks as this can cause fizz. Use an anti-fizz curl cream. This will work wonders to give bounce and definition.
Mini Stacked Bob with Feathered Bangs
Thin hair has more style range than ever before. A mini stacked bob with feathered bangs is crafted with an inverted shape to build up weight. And it will create movement at the crown. A textured bob with curtain bangs gives your hair an airy bounce. It can be styled with a texture spray or styling wax. This haircut and style work best for medium to thin density and wavy texture.
Short Face-Framing Shag with Mini Choppy Bangs
A short face-framing shag cut with a mini choppy bang is a fun, flirty look to have. A shaggy bob is a great style option for any woman who has to deal with natural texture. It will give you a nice rounded shape and is easy to style and maintain.
Messy French Bob Cut with Layers
A layered bob style worn naturally tousled looks great on women with petite features. The layers will create movement and texture giving your style a slightly bulky feel. Ask for the sides to skim your jaw and a full layered fringe to frame your face. Try a sea salt spray to give your ends that lived-in feel.
Blonde Balayage on Layered Bob with Bangs
Hair color can help to accent or camouflage your face shape. At your next salon visit, ask about a blonde balayage that can compliment your features. Shorter styles like a layered bob can be worn tousled and messy. But when worn with bangs, it helps ground the style to look polished. When paired together as color and cut, the style comes together for a modern yet lived-in style.
Shaggy Bob with Micro Bangs and Big Waves
Try a shaggy bob with micro bangs styled with big waves. Textured bobs with bangs are a great statement look. When you have thick hair, wearing your hair short gives you a full look and will really highlight your curls. Having a fringe when you have textured hair will give you a round shape. It’s flattering on young to middle-aged women.
Light Copper on a Textured Choppy Bob with Bangs
A chin-length textured bob with bangs is so on trend. Ask for a shape that is slightly shorter at the back and drops slightly at the front. Ask your stylist to add some long layers to create volume. Consider keeping some long bangs to give a softer feel to your choppy bob. A light copper blonde works well to warm your complexion, while also brightening it.
Brunette Wavy Bob with Short-Arched Bangs
Give your fine hair a boost, and ask for a shoulder-length textured bob with bangs. The length will thicken your hair while a surface layer with create volume. Soft, face-framing bangs give bangs an on-trend feel. I recommend using a dry texture spray once styled to complete a lived-in, raw look.
Jaw-Length Wispy Bob and Bangs for Older Women
A modern short textured bob with bangs works very well for older women. Because it lifts the face and creates thickness. A short bob with crown layers gives volume and a soft wispy face frame is flattering for all.
Wispy Long Bangs on a Razor Cut Bob
Frame your face with a chin-length bob and a soft wispy longer fringe. This works wonders if your hair is on the finer side as it helps to give the illusion of thicker hair. The fringe will give versatility. Dry your hair with a round brush to give body.
Natural Texture on a Rooted Blonde Bob
If you have hair with a natural wavy or curly texture, then enhance the movement by going for a long bob. Ask for longer layers to stack the shape without losing thickness. And a full feathered fringe helps to create softness. As the hair is worn with more volume, a lived-in root gives a grittier feel when the ends are lighter.
French Curly Bob with a Fringe
Soft and feminine, a French bob with fringe gives a relaxed, undone feel. Ask for jaw-skimming sides and eyebrow-length bangs to give a cute look. A great take on the French bob if you have petite features. Apply a volume spray and use a diffuser to dry to keep an undone feel.
Textured Short Bob with Razored Layers and Baby Bangs
If you want a jaw-length bob cut but need to hide your longer forehead, try asking for a short textured fringe. Because you’ll have your hairline cut with a razor, it will lay closer to your head. This is especially good for thick hair. It will give your forehead a smaller appearance. Your edgy cut can be styled messy or classic.
Blunt Inverted Bob with Textured Ends
If you’re wanting a trendy cut the best on offer is a textured a-line bob with bangs. Shorter lengths worn with textured ends created by layers and combing out a wave, give a lived-in look. If you want something a bit different, ask for a blunt full fringe to give a contrast to the softer length.
