A chin-length bob with bangs is the perfect shape for fine hair textures. No volume is needed for this flatter shape so it’s super easy to style. Add some texture mist and air dry or blow dry with your hands for a cute and lived-in finish. Make sure your layers are not cut too short to maintain thickness and great lines. If you have a round face shape this cut is super complimentary.

If you’re searching for a haircut with lots of style, try a short bob with bangs. The clean lines of this shape will always make an impact on any age group. The key is to keep the layers one length for the maximum impact visually. Refrain from blowing this shape under, and instead, try blowing the edge straight down for a more modern finish. A short bob hairstyle should be cut about every 5 weeks to keep it looking sharp.

You cannot go wrong with a chin-length layered bob. This shape will always be stylish and easy to maintain. Try a side part for the most lift in the crown or a middle part for a flatter top. Ask your stylist to point cut the ends for beautiful seamless layers that add movement. Blow-dry simply with a round brush or your hands and you can even add some curls with an iron.

A short bob is the perfect choice for older women. Long hair can drag your facial features down, so why not lift them up with a shorter style. Ask your hairdresser to graduate the nape and get the benefit of a posture boost, making you appear straighter and taller. A short bob is also easy to style with a quick blow dry using a medium round brush and some smoothing cream. This cut works on most face shapes and just might be the style you are searching for.

A flattering short bob for women over 70 can make you look ten years younger. Taking the length up gives your hair new life and makes it so much healthier. Adding a bang is also a great option to hide unwanted wrinkles on the forehead. A bob haircut is also easy to dry with some smoothing cream and a round brush and is complementary to most face shapes.

Stacked Bob with Layers

A stacked bob with layers works on all hair types but will make thin hair appear fuller and thicker. Ask your stylist to graduate the nape and leave the layers longer for the perfect shape. This classic style compliments any age group and is always a great choice. Try changing your part to the middle or to the side, sometimes small changes give big results.

A short choppy bob for fine hair is always a pleaser. Soft layers added to an a-line shape give your bob a sexy draping feel. Ask your stylist to point cut into the ends for a light and airy shape. Add some soft curls with a 1-inch curling iron to your finished blow dry for a beautiful and tousled style.

Short Bob with Bangs for Women Over 60

Women over 60 should try a short bob with bangs and update their style. If you have a one-length bob adding more layers can change your cut dramatically, and make it easier to control. The layers will enable you to keep your hair out of your face by pushing it backward or tucking it behind your ear. Bangs are always a great option and can make you appear much younger. Short bobs are especially suitable for narrow face shapes and can be very uplifting to your face.

Short Stacked Inverted Bob

A short stacked inverted bob is so pleasing to the eye with its clean lines. Make sure the layers that are added are minimal to keep the bob line sharp. Not having a bang is a good choice and will give you the most dramatic shape. Blow-dry your bob with a smoothing cream like Outshine by Redken, and a large round brush working on the underneath first, for the most beautiful finish.

Short Choppy Layered Bob for Thick Hair

When choosing a new look, consider a short choppy layered bob for thick hair. Shorter thick hairstyles need lots of feathered textured layers to appear light and voluminous. Style with a quick beach wave for that extra oomph.

Shaggy Pixie Bob

Bixie Style

Consider a bixie style if you want a change from a bob cut, but don’t want to go too short. Somewhere between a bob and a pixie, the bixie is a refreshing change. Ask your stylist to add layers to your nape and around the face maintaining length around the ears, and you can change your current cut dramatically. A bixie will work on all face shapes and age groups and can be styled forward or backward to suit your face shape.

This jaw-length bob is based on a strong geometric and disciplined shape, but with layers providing texture and movement.

The strength in the perimeter line accentuates the jawline, while the layers sit at the cheekbone level to create interest and to keep the shape from looking too solid and heavy.

Use some R&Co Chiffon light mousse before drying to add strength. Also, some R&Co Control paste to bring out the layers and give the finished look.

This cut razor-cut mid-neck length bob. This girl has bangs that suit her face – shorter and more textured. This cut was not blow-dried with a brush but with a diffuser and surf spray to encourage natural movement and texture.

This choppy short bob cut that’s textured and angled is one of my favorite styles. It’s so versatile and can go from straight and sleek to tousled and textured like it’s shown in the picture. This is such a fun, flirty bob with a deep side part that is easy to duplicate at home.

For this look, apply Kenra Body Boosting Spray Foam and Kenra Blowdry Spray for volume and shine, then curl with a 1-inch iron, leaving the ends straight for a more textured look.

This short choppy bob cut and style works well for most face shapes and can be styled so easily at home, making it a good choice for almost everyone.

Sassy A-Line Bob

Instagram @joshthiessen_hair

This look is sassy, yet more playful than your traditional short A-line bob. The perimeter is textured instead of blunt, and the interior is sliced (sliced bob) through in order to remove excess weight.

To maintain this look, try applying Kevin Murphy Body Mass spray all over wet hair. This style can be air-dried or rough-dried with a blow dryer. Finishing touches can be made with a large barrel curling iron, although this step is not necessary. To finish, apply Kevin Murphy Doo Over for a fresh and undone look that will hold throughout the day.

An a-line cut is for the low-maintenance woman who also appreciates style and a quality grow out. This cut is great for naturally wavy hair and small and/or oval face shapes.

Asymmetrical Bob

This short asymmetrical bob is an updated version of one of the most classic short bobs of all time.

This bob haircut can be tailored in so many ways to suit different hairs. Depending on the face width, you can either draw attention or defer attention depending on the length you go with. You can also play around with layers and texture to either make the hair fuller and blunter or take out the weight and add some layers or face framing.

A Very Short Layered Bob

This very short, layered bob haircut has a perimeter that mimics the jawline, which helps maintain balance and visual appeal.

To style, apply a smoothing serum (like Kerastase Oleo-Relax or Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum) and a cream gel (like Bumble and Bumble Styling Creme or Kerastase Forme Fatale).

Finish with a touch of styling paste or clay (like Bumble and Bumble Thickening Creme Contour or SumoClay) for soft definition and texture in the perimeter.

Edgy, Face-Framing Bangs

Instagram @diegomarcsant

This short bob haircut is 50% classic, 50% edgy. Bangs can be sweet or badass, depending on how you style them. Playing with shorter fringe is a fun, low commitment way to change up your look because if you get tired of them, they grow out in a couple of weeks anyway!

Use R+Co’s Mannequin for separation and grit. Ask your stylist for the flyaway look to the layers. It’s a pliable product, so the look changes as you touch your hair throughout the day.

This shorter bob is great for women who like to change up their look and don’t mind styling their hair daily.

Permed Bob

Bob for a Chubby Face

Short bob cuts require a short hair expert to determine the right cut and length for rounder faces. Those who want their faces looking slim and fresh would definitely love this look! Notice how it starts in a center part, straightened down just beside the jawline for an elongating effect, and then finished with waved ends for a touch of elegance.

Short Straight Bob

Instagram @fabrizio_coloristas

Short bob hair is classic, chic, and cool and never goes out of style. A straight bob suits many face shapes, and the only thing you have to consider is what length will go with your face shape. The goal here is to create the appearance of having an oval shape.

When it comes to hair texture the most ideal candidate is a woman with straight hair and medium density since they don’t have to spend a lot of time trying to style their hair.

If you want the classic bob, know that this haircut is done with 0-degree elevation to create the shape. Or you can either opt for an A-line bob or square bob instead.

Perfect Shaggy Bob for Thin Hair

Instagram @micapopovich

A shaggy bob is the best and easiest way to go to make your thin fine hair appear thicker and full of volume. Work with layers that are wavy towards the end for a charming outcome.

It’s cut with a straight razor with lots of weight removed. A soft, natural, and modern version of a classic cut.

A short shaggy bob cut is for anyone looking for a new style. I think bobs work on everybody and the loose, playful layers add a flirty, casual feel that can work on most face shapes.

Use a salt spray to give it texture and a creamy paste to detail all the little bits and pieces.

Blonde Undercut Bob

Instagram @catnyehair

Try a short undercut bob with foil highlights. I love the peekaboo effect of the undercut at the sides. The brightness of the highlights accentuates the buzzed hair underneath. It’s a bit edgy but also cute and versatile.

This might be the perfect style for women with “too much hair.” The undercut bob removes the bulky look of short thick hair. It’s great for the summer heat because it keeps hair off the neck.

As with any shorter bobs, it requires a bit of styling if you have textured hair.

Naturally Curly Bob

Instagram @larnkieninger

Go for a very layered, short angled bob. It is shorter in the back and slightly longer in the front, but also has a lot of smaller shorter layers to break up the heaviness that can form on the base of the cut. This helps to avoid the ‘triangle’ shape. If you are blessed with a lot of hair, ask for an undercut to take out some of the extra bulk which helps maintain the shape for long, and because it’s fun!

This curly bob style is actually relatively low maintenance. Because of the layers and angle, it can hold its shape for 2-3 months.

Angled short bob hairstyles look great on most face-shapes, so it’s more about the smaller tweaks of the cut that gives it a specially tailored look. Some examples are the undercut or the bangs.

To keep up the shape daily, use DevaCurl Volumizing Foam followed with either a curl gel or cream depending on the season. During the warm months, use DevaCurl Ultra-Gel and during the cold months, use DevaCurl Supercream. Let it air-dry and sometimes follows up with her diffuser on low for about 5 mins to give it some extra volume.

Short Rounded Bob Crop

Instagram @lara_stelmashuk

A rounded bob is a short stacked bob that’s angled. What you may or may not be able to tell is the front has no bangs or face-framing layers. It’s all one length around her face.

This short crop is how versatile it is. It can truly be altered to fit your face shape, lifestyle, or personal preference.

If you have any texture then it’s going to take a product and at least 20 minutes of blow drying and round-brushing to get it to lay this smooth.

This short hair cut also looks great curly so with the right product, a girl with curly hair could let her hair air dry and it would be really cute.

Textured & Layered Feathered Bob

Instagram @hed_salon

Try a short graduated bob with short feathered layers and bangs. Brush layers forward to fall over the bangs and gave it a messy look.

Almost anyone can wear this short bob haircut! The products you use and styling a feathered bob all depend on your hair texture and type. This cut looks amazing on curly and wavy hair types, too.

Stacked Swing Bob

When considering short bob haircuts, try a classy, stacked swing bob. I like this style on her because it looks gorgeous smoothed out, with soft curls, or with her natural curls. This cut is versatile and gives you a classy yet sassy style.

Use Kenra Blow Dry Spray to prep the hair because it adds shine, serves as a heat protectant, smells amazing (like the beach), and works perfectly as a humidity blocker. Also use Monat Restore Leave-In Conditioner, Monat Restyle Instant Sculpting Taffy, and Monat Refinish Control Hairspray.

I recommend this type of style for any woman that has thick hair and someone that may not like to shampoo often. This look gives you the option to wear it with natural curls, smooth it and volumize the next day, then do soft beachy curls (as in the picture) with their flat iron.

I wouldn’t recommend this haircut to those with fine or thin hair because they lack the thickness to make this stacked look. For fine/thin hair, I’d recommend a long bob (Lob) with long layers.

Short to Medium Bob

I love that this style creates a fuller look on any type of hair while still keeping flowing layers and movement!

For this hairstyle, use Bumble and Bumble Thickening spray and All Style cream before blow drying to add volume. When the hair is dry, finish with Oribe Dry Texture spray to give the hair a tousled, textured, lived-in look.

This style is great for those who have fine hair (but a lot of it) and have a hard time getting volume. This style can be a wash and wear look if you have very curly hair because it will give the curls a lot more bounce. Straight hair is going to require a little bit of effort! I believe any face shape and any age can pull off this look. Rounder faces should have the front come below their chin, while heart shaped and square faces should have the front right at the chin. The ideal clients for this haircut are those who have a little time in the morning to style their hair. It is a great look for those in the professional world that want a style they can have fun with!

Super Short Inverted Bob

Keep your nape in tip-top shape with a super short inverted bob. Let your hair’s fluidity move to create a flawless curtain even in a short cut.

Vintage Bob with Fringe

Vintage Bob with Fringe
Instagram @bareeminimum

This haircut is a mix of a vintage bob such as the likes of Louis Brooks with its defined lines, retro-inspired bangs and blunt cut with the sophistication and elegance of a young Isabella Rossellini. The slightly textured ends give it a slightly modern feel while the angle of the cut is shorter in the front and curved in the back gives it that fun flapper vibe.

The type of products for this style would be mousse and texture spray to keep it from getting too soft and flat, lots of hairspray to hold the style in place, and a pinch of silkening serum on the ends. I also love to put hair powder on everything!

This is a short hair style for vintage girls, women, and girls of any age especially beautiful on someone with a rounder face, softer features and/or a long neck to really capture the vintage feel of this style. It can be worn with minimal to no makeup and hairstyling for a french feel or styled and paired with makeup, bold lips, and a barrette or headband for a night out.

Graduated Angled Bob

Instagram @tiffanyshuck

A graduated angled bob is where the back is cut to the hairline and the front reaches almost mid-neck when the hair is straight or wet. I love the clean precise line that the back creates and the texture that is shown as the hair curls.

For fine hair, I recommend using Deva Curl B’Leave-In and Ultra Defining Gel. If your hair is thicker, I would recommend using R+Co Twister and Aircraft.

Any hair type can get a short bob haircut like this. You just have to take into consideration that if your hair is fine and straight, then you won’t see the shape as well as someone with curly hair. This haircut can be very slimming and works well with almost every face shape, especially someone with a more rounded face.

Modern Swing Bob with Bangs

Instagram @alexisartistry

Try a very roaring 1920s-inspired bob, but with a modern flair. It’s very artsy and fun. It’s easy styling and upkeep, and the edginess of the disconnected framing in the front.

To create this short hairstyle, use a small round brush to give shape to the bevel of the bob and the bangs, as well as some Kevin Murphy Anti Gravity spray for volume. For shine, I use the L’Oréal Shower Shine finishing spray. If you want a more textured look, you can use Kevin Murphy Freehold Cream.

I would recommend shorter bobs with bangs to anyone who has thicker hair and loves to wear their hair down, as well as someone who enjoys their face being more framed.

Cute Round Bob for Women Over 60

A short bob cut for ladies over 60 looks great hugging right around that jawline, or even grazing the shoulders. There’s not a ton of layering to deal, with so styling is super simple with a quick blow dry and maybe a touch up with a flat iron. It has the perfect amount of texture through the ends to keep it soft and have movement.

Short bob haircuts like this also work well paired with a fringe. It has that perfectly polished look for any classic woman, plus the versatility for the more adventurous! By simply adding a texture spray like Eufora Full Effect, you can give it more body and texture. Or, take a curling wand and put in a beach wave and finish with Eufora Style Details Dry Spray Wax.

This cut can work with any face shape just by altering length, angle and fringe. It can take away bulk for those with thick and unruly locks and add the appearance of thickness for those with fine and limp strands.

Textured Blunt Bob With Bangs for Women Over 50

The sharp and blunt effect of this bob makes a person look twice. When you get a short bob style for women over 50 as a blunt bob, you feel on top of the world! It can swing and flow as you walk, really showing your confidence.

To style: on wet hair, use a leave-in conditioner and heat protectant spray. After drying, use a hairspray and a spray wax. Evo is a great brand because each product does what it’s meant to do.

I recommend this look for women with fine hair to make it look a lot thicker. This cut can also look amazing with thick hair as it can be softened to style well and work with the cut.

Natural Graduated Bob

Consider a natural graduated bob with a neutral push on the sides. The short strands are versatile for styling.

This look is great for someone looking for a fun, spunky, youthful and versatile haircut. All hair types can rock this look.

To style, you can round brush, curl, wave, or straighten the look. When the hair is wet, apply a medium hold spray gel. I love Rocco Altobellis spray gel because it has a heat protectant in it called rhatany root. It also adds body, volume and shine and it is fast drying. Round brush the hair and style with any heat tool desired. Finish with Redken’s Wind Blown 5 dry finishing spray. This creates a matte finish with an undone, dry textured look.

Modern Bob With Fringe

Instagram @nicky_mckenzie_hair

This short bob haircut is so modern. It is easy and effortless, making it perfect for the girl who doesn’t want to fuss too much and still look “done”. The bangs make all the difference! They give the haircut an edge that isn’t a huge commitment.

It may not look like it, but there was a ton of texturizing involved in creating this haircut. Whether it’s messy or smoothed out, it still looks great. Who would’ve thought a simple, textured, one-length bob cut with bangs could be so chic?

If your hair is naturally straight or doesn’t have too much texture, try Kerastase Fluidissime Thermal Anti Frizz Protection Spray or Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother. Both products are light, but powerful.

For thick hair that needs hold and style, use Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Nourishing Styling Creme or the Creme de la Creme blow-dry cream by Kerastase.

The beauty of short bob haircuts with bangs is that you can personalize it to anyone. As with any short haircut, there’s a certain level of commitment.

Short to Long Sophistication

A short bob haircut can be very versatile. It’s sexy, yet playful! It can have a sophisticated look for work by blow drying it straight, or you can throw some curls in it and piece it out for some texture. It’s a quick and low maintenance.

This cut is for women looking for quick and easy short styles. It is perfect for someone who leads a busy and active lifestyle. Hair that is fine to medium thickness would work best with this style.

Before you blow dry, apply Oribe Imperial Blowout from roots to ends and Oribe Maximista throughout. After blow drying,  flat iron and finish with Brazilian Blowout Dry Oil. If curling,  use a 1 1/4-inch curling iron and finish with Oribe Aprés Beach.

Razor Cut with Highlights

Consider a short, edgy and effortless razor cut bob! It is one of my favorite short bob styles. What I love about this cut most of all is how easy you can maintain this look. This haircut grows out perfectly and can be easily styled within minutes!

Products play an important role with this style! Use Paul Mitchell’s HydroCreamWhip before blow dry to ensure that the hair is smooth but still has touchable volume. Another option is a texture cream by Paul Mitchell called Reworks.

Use your fingers or paddle brush to dry the hair. Once the hair is dry, a sea salt spray can be added for an extra beach-like finish. This can be used straight or after running a curling iron through the hair. Finish off with a shine spray or light finishing spray and you’re set!

This style is perfect for the woman who does little or no styling at all. It’s great on the go style and is a tad edgier than the classic Vidal Sassoon bob. Face shape plays an important role when deciding the length, especially in front. A more narrow face shape is ideal, but for someone more round, leave more length so it doesn’t cup the client’s chin and can elongate the face.

This short bob hair cut is great for a more active woman because it will look done but not too polished. This will fit a woman who doesn’t necessarily have a corporate job.

One-Length Short Blonde Bob

Instagram @korimichelle_theyoungamerican

This strong, baseline-style cut is a solid short blonde bob that creates an intensity of the blonde colorwork. The best thing about this look is the brightness of the clean blonde and the solid baseline.

Try Redken Extreme shampoo and conditioner, as well as Blonde Idol violet treatment. For styling, use Aerate 08 and Fashion Work 12 hairspray.

The perfect woman for this look has a heart, diamond, or round face shape. A one-length bob is best suited for fine to medium hair types.

The versatility of this style and cut allows the look to suit every lifestyle from day to night, how ver the maintenance of the blonde on short hair is a commitment and would need toners and re-coloring every four to six weeks.

Layered and Textured Bob

The best think about a layered textured bob is the nice, swingy, natural movement it gets.

Use any dry texturizing product like the new Kenra Air Grip Spray to build volume and amp up the texture to show off the movement in the hair.

This cut for thick to medium textured hair!

Sassy Wavy Bob

Sassy Wavy Bob
Instagram @kassandra.sommerville

A short wavy bob is one of the most popular short bob haircuts right now. This haircut frames the face in all the right places. Sometimes taking that leap of faith and cutting your hair into a bob can be the best choice you’ve ever made!

While the hair is still wet, use Rare Oil Style Perfecting Serum. It conditions, adds shine, and helps maintain the style all day.

As a heat protectant on dry hair, use Hot off the Press. As a hairspray, use Marula Rare Oil Perfecting Hairspray because it is humidity resistant and super workable. For added texture, use Paul Mitchell Neon Sugar Spray.

The best thing about a wavy bob cut is that it’s flattering on most women! When someone has long thick hair, this haircut allows your stylist to remove so much weight while also creating body and movement.

When someone has very thin hair, cutting their hair to this length can create the illusion of thick hair. It also adds layers and volume a thin-haired client never thought they could have or achieve themselves!

This cut is great for women who feel like you are stuck in a rut and want to “do” your hair more! Think less everyday ponytail and bit more everyday curl and sass. Shorter hair = less time spent curling!

Jet Black Chin Length Sleek Bob

This short bob cut is mod and contemporary with its clean lines.

I recommend short bob haircuts like this for women with medium and fine textured hair. This look also looks great on someone who has straight hair. It’s best for someone who doesn’t want to spend a lot of time on their day to day hairstyling.

The main thing you have to do with this cut is either go throughout and straighten it or even put a little wave in it to give it more of a messy look, but nothing that will really take anyone more than 10 minutes to do every day.

Sleek Blunt Bob

Timeless short bobs have many variations and can work on every hair type out there which is my favorite part of this cut.

This cut blunt, cropped quite short, is very clean with a sleek look, and thanks to balayage—it has a natural, light honey, dimensional color.

To style, use a round brushed the hair to add a little bit of body but kept in mind to keep it relatively straight while doing so. This cut can be worn with any texture. It also looks great waved with volume or scrunched with natural curls.

The short, blunt perimeter widens the lower half of the face, so if you’re concerned in that department, this look might not be the most flattering.
