Pull off a modern chin-grazing bob and look classy every time! This hair trend is an all-time favorite that suits most women. It’s fun and easy to style, plus it grows out pretty. The chop features shorter layers at the back to boost a very fine hair texture.

Slightly Angled Bob Haircut

This short chin-length hair is a short and slightly angled bob cut. It’s cut at an angle so that the nape area is roughly an inch shorter than the front length. Hair artist Jamie Leigh of Solsberry, IN gave her textured layers for movement and to lighten up her bulky heavy hair.

“My favorite thing about this cut is that it’s flattering for all ages and can be adjusted for any face shape. It generally keeps its shape for up to three months, making it a go-to for busy women on the go,” Leigh notes.

A consultation is always needed to know which adjustments should be made. Leigh explains, “For an edgier look, the angle could be steeper. You could stack or graduate the nape area for added shape. Shorter layers or bangs can be cut for more volume, larger foreheads, or this basic shape can be left without layers for thin and fine hair.”

When recreating this angled curly bob style, Leigh suggests some styling products to use. “My faves for shorter & finer hair are BIG SEXY Root Boost and Spray Clay Texturizer. For wavy hair, use a light gloss to smooth the hair shaft and eliminate frizz, then a spray of AG Sea Salt Spray for beachy texture. For thicker bulky hair, my two faves are Biosilk Coconut Therapy and BIG SEXY Love Oil cocktailed with AG Recoil and Totaled Lightly (left to air dry),” she explains.

Made by stylist Chelsea Baert of Minnesota, this is a super easy and wearable style that does not take much effort at all. You can wear it textured and natural or blown out and sleek. Both take minimal style time.

Baert explains, “This is a style that requires some styling. It’s not high maintenance by any means, but the effort is required whether it be using a scrunch in product for a textured look or a simple blow dry and curl. It’s not wake up and go kind of hairstyle.”

Sharpe also notes that this look is great for women with a thinner/narrow, oval, or heart face shape. When hair is cut to chin-length, it accentuates the lower area of the face.

Hairstyles for chin-length hair like this short beach wavy cut offer a lived-in vibe, especially if paired with a blonde hue. It has a finish that looks flattering on ladies with an oval face shape. If the hair is too fine and needs life, don’t hesitate to give it a side-parted style. That gives instant volume!

According to Ohio-based stylist Brittany Clark, this chin-length bob has no layers. No inversion, meaning it’s the same length all the way around, and it’s not longer in the front like a traditional bob.

Great products for this look are density mousse and texture spray. Clark explains, “If you have finer hair, you will need to style this cut every day to create the volume you need. Thicker hair could get away with just using a texture spray to give it a little messiness. This is cute straight and sleek or curly and messy!”
