Top 15 Short Inverted Bob Haircuts

Short inverted bob haircuts

A short inverted bob is a way to cut a bob so that the hair is shorter in the back and gradually gets longer in the front. This short bob is usually tapered at the back and with some layering. The length of an inverted bob on short hair is usually between the ear and jaw-line an emphasizes the graduation and lift.

Utah short hair specialist Julie Holbrook expertly suggests that “medium thickness with fine texture have the best results with modern short inverted bobs because of the way the hair lays.”

One major thing to ask your hairdresser is how to style an inverted bob for short hair. Short layers are popular and Julie reminds to, “always ask if your stylist cuts dry hair to make sure they see how your inverted bob will lay when dry.” She then adds “styling should be a part of your consultation before you get this cut because it requires some flat-iron work or round brushing for most people.”
