A short bob haircut with bangs is great for women who want a bob that removes weight while also giving off a mod style. Short hair requires less maintenance, product, and time to style. However, adding bangs can require extra styling time.

The key to choosing the best short bob with bangs is understanding your face shape and hair type. Bangs might be just a small part of the bob, but they can significantly change your look! Depending upon your hair type or density, you may want to add layers or texturizing.

#6: Chin-Length Textured Bob With Side-Swept Bangs

Less common bobs include side-swept bangs. The length of this bob can be slightly adjusted to suit your face shape. Keep the bob longer on rounder face shapes and shorter on longer face shapes. A longer side-swept bang is flattering on every face shape and is great for keeping your styling options open, as it can be worn curly or straight. In general, this cut works best on thinner hair. If your hair is thicker and you still want this look, consider talking to your stylist about an undercut, which can be a great option to achieve the look on thicker hair and cut your blow-dry time in half!
