#1: Chin-Length Cut with Baby Bangs

A chin-length textured cut with baby bangs is edgy and gives lots of texture. This style is a fun way to go shorter without living in a traditional bob. In my professional experience, you’ll need to see a stylist who specializes in textured haircuts. Using a tool such as a razor or texturizing shears will give you the optimum movement you’re looking for.

#2: Dark-Rooted Balayage Lob with Textured Ends

Textured bobs are now considered as the modern hairstyle. Pairing a bob with balayage gives it a dimensional style, a bonus. Tell your stylist that you want your hair to have fewer layers but deeper texture at the ends. This will give some layering at the ends of your hair while avoiding a rounded or fuller shape like typical bob layers.

#3: Center Parted and Rooted with Texture

If your hair has a rooty color, try playing up the texture of your bob hairstyle and adding a center part. Rooty hair colors can not only add volume but also give a natural and lived-in impression to your hairstyle. A center part can slim and lengthen your face. If your hair is naturally straight, I’d recommend styling it with some beachy textured waves.

#4: Dimensional Barbie-Inspired

If you are seeking a classic look with a touch of edge, consider the best option: a Barbie-blonde textured bob featuring dimensional highlights. Intertwining the dark and bright blonde shades enhances the color, making it appear brighter and deeper. I would recommend you use a good texture spray so you can maximize your volume.

#5: Soft Blunt Bob with Texture

A soft, textured blunt bob is more understated compared to a uniform-length hairstyle. If your face is on the narrow side and you seek to add some breadth, you should consider the blunt bob cut. To get this look, request your stylist to implement point cuts or slide cuts at the hair’s ends. Such cuts will lighten the hair ends and instill a slight lift. If you desire a tousled finish, try blow drying with your hands and a round brush, adding a small amount of texture paste.

#6: Bright and Textured

Show off your cut with a blunt yet textured perimeter. This style will ensure fullness and movement in the hair. Add layers to prevent the ends from looking too textured. Add a rooty and dimensional blonde color to enhance this attractive style.

The side-parted and tousled textured bob is a versatile hairstyle that many people find appealing. With a side part, this bob frames the face beautifully and adds a touch of charm. The textured layers help to create movement and body. This feature makes the hairstyle suitable for various hair types and lengths. This hairstyle is ideal for individuals looking to add volume and softness to their hair. To achieve this look, start with damp hair and apply a texturizing spray from roots to ends. Use a round brush while blow-drying to create natural-looking waves and movement. Finish off with a light-hold hairspray to ensure the style holds in place.

The only problem is that the undercut grows back quickly and will need a trim before the rest of your hair does.

Enhancing Your Natural Hair Texture

Muckey says that wavy to straight textures are the best hair types for a textured cut. The allure of this style lies in its ability to enhance texture, making it easier for individuals to achieve definition and volume naturally. Whether you have fine or coarse hair, Muckey recommends focusing on the desired outcome. For fine hair, piecey layers that add lift and volume are typically sought after, while coarse or thick hair often requires reducing bulk while maintaining movement and definition.

Tailoring This Cut

Muckey emphasizes that the technique may vary depending on the wearer’s natural texture. Using a razor or scissors, employing more graduated shapes, or emphasizing weight on the ends are some considerations that depend on the individual’s hair type. To ensure a personalized result, Muckey suggests working with dry or slightly damp hair and styling/scrunching throughout the process. This allows the stylist to see how the hair naturally falls on a day-to-day basis and make intuitive adjustments to the layers accordingly.

If You Have Curly Hair…

For those with curls and coils, Muckey emphasizes the importance of finding a stylist skilled in working with this particular texture. Curls and coils require specialized techniques and expertise to achieve the desired results. The unique properties of curly and coily hair demand precision and understanding, ensuring the cut enhances the natural pattern and allows for easy styling and maintenance.
