Timeless Short Bob With Bangs

By style creator, Janelle
Master Stylist @ Just Janelle Hair Design in Vancouver, BC, Canada


Classic short bobs with bangs never goes out of style. Not to mention a few loose curls can do wonders for a different or more formal style.

For women who don’t wear a far side part to offset any harshness, the right front bangs for the face shape add a nice softness to the overall style.

Use a good styling cream/volumizer such as Bumble and Bumble Styling Cream and Kevin Murphy Anti.Gravity before blow drying on wash days, paired with a multi-purpose shine/anti-frizz spray.

For women who could previously not wear short hair or bangs now benefit from flat irons and texturizing techniques.

The rounder the face, the longer the front length should be to create a slimming silhouette (think a couple of inches below the chin). A side bang will definitely add to that effect. Smaller, “pointier” chins can pretty well pull off any style of bob and bangs, even as short as a 20s-style bob.

How would you describe this?
This is a Curly Shag. It can be successfully achieved at any length, and it’s great for women whose hair is more wavey than curly. Shape these cuts using a variety of layering techniques to give it a ton of movement.

What is your best advice?
If you have been thinking of doing a certain shape or even curly bangs, ask your stylist to help you in a way that best suits you. This shape is perfect for wavier types, just add your favorite water-based product to mostly wet hair (too much water when styling wavey hair will weigh it down and make it limp), give it a gentle shake, and unless you diffuse it for additional volume, you’re done!

A lot of times women wanting bangs are apprehensive because curly girls have long been told they couldn’t do it. Ask your hairstylist to layer your hair in a way that allows for bangs if pulled forward but if you don’t want to have them you can simply style the front of your hair back and away from the face, which creates added volume.

How would you describe this?

This bob cut with baby bangs is a modern twist on a classic bob shape. The structure, but choppy micro fringe makes the shape even edgier. Plus, it adds an element of fun to this otherwise serious style.

What’s your best advice?

Be prepared to style your bob’s fringe everyday. For some women that will be 5 minutes, others it could be 20. Regardless, this bob is not for women who want to get up and go. Also plan on coming to the salon every 4-6 weeks to maintain the look by making sure the color and cut stay fresh. This look does require you to do a little work at home if they have anything other than stick straight hair.
Also depending on your face shape, length suitability will differ. Opt for chin length if your have a very narrow jaw line, and longer if you have a more round face. Edgier women could add in the micro fringe or take the length a touch higher than the jawline.
