With the recent surge in layered haircut popularity, few women will consider a bob when chopping off their long locks. But a well-cut bob can enhance your facial profile and add a tinge of energy to your overall looks.
If you are tired of managing those long strands, go for a medium-length or short bob. These haircuts make your hair look thicker and give your face a luscious framing. No matter how old you are, this classic hairstyle is undoubtedly chic and invariably flattering if worn with the right outfits and accessories.
Here are a few bob haircut suggestions that can elevate your overall look:
How about a Chin Length Bob?
With the fringe of locks touching the mid-neck and near the chin, a chin length bob mostly befits narrow faces. It draws attention to the jawline and creates a visual impression of widening the facial silhouette.
However, it works with almost any face shape as there are diverse styling options. Leaving the strands straight is quite common, but you can jazz up the look by adding layers or waves, keeping the locks blunt, or beaching them to a nice color for adding textures.
Classic Bob with Bangs for Aged Women
A bob hairdo to the length of your shoulder or chin with bangs is classic. The style oozes an age-transcending appeal that suits everyone—from a 60-year-old woman to a 15-year-old teenager. Its youthful and energetic charisma works as an age-reversing charm for mature women.
A classic bob cut is suitable for short hair as it ends at the jawline. There is no distinct layer, but the length is shaped for a soft-rounded framing. With bangs, this hairdo emphasizes all face shapes, so you may not want it for a square or long face. But you can still soften the silhouette with slightly longer bangs.
Look Amazing with a Textured Bob
Layered hairdos are the new sexy. So, why not pairing up layers with bob to get an intriguing, modern look?
A textured bob hairdo features layers all over instead of just on one side. The strands will be a little longer, touching or just hanging over your shoulder. There will be shorter layered strands at the front covering your ears and a part of the cheeks to create textures.
Just like the chin-length bob, this style is up for a range of tweaks. Messy waves, bouncy curls, and flicks could be the options. Want to do more experiments? Go on with some hairspray, hair wax, hair clips, and bobby pins. You may set a new trend. Who knows!
The Long Bob for Tall Girls
A short or mid-length bob is not flattering for tall women. It will make them look lankier, creating an impression of a disproportionate body. The long bob (or lob) is a solution.
An ideal length would be from touching the collarbone to going beyond. The lob compliments your body height and you make it work for different face profiles with a few add-ons. For example, go for bangs to add width to an elongated face while a side-swept fringe will ease off the sharp outlines of an angular face.
Even if you are not tall, a lob can be a stylish makeshift cut before transitioning to a shorter bob.
The Final Words
A bob haircut is a low maintenance. Just shampoo the hair and blow-dry gently in a descending motion and you are good to go. No need for any additional grooming or using a comb. Plus, the style is so versatile, leaving little chance for the big chop to go wrong.
