Bob Hairstyles for Women
Classic Bob Haircuts

When her hair is straight, it is much thinner – something curly-headed girls often rejoice in. This sleek, straight bob is classy without being too formal, and best of all – it’s a very quick, manageable look.
Short Vintage Straight Bob Hairstyles

If you have thick hair like Bassett’s, go for a center part and be sure to use leave-in conditioner and some setting spray to maintain a sleek, stay-in-place-all-night style.
Short Clean Angled Bob Cut
© Koplina Natalia. Are you looking for new ideas about how to style short, straight hair? Try out this clean cut bob with only a small bit of layering in the back. A hint of violet streaks the longer front section, which spices things up a bit!
Silky Long Bob with Waves

Classy Angled Wavy and Textured Bob
© Chris McMillan The Salon. Wavy hair has its pros and cons, and sometimes, those waves need the silhouette of a bob to control them. Try this style with medium length for something new. It still has an angle, but it’s definitely less defined, giving you a bit of wiggle room at the ends.
Long Angled Bob with Side Undercut
© Flok Studio. A more extreme version of the bob is this fun and exciting style accented with an undercut side. The hair all emanates from one point, sweeping over the top of the head and across the forehead.
Steep Angled Bob with Straight Bangs
© Klaus Müller Friseur. When choosing from a wide selection of angled haircuts, this classy bob with straight across bangs is something to be considered! A throwback to the long, bowl-shaped cuts of the 70’s, this brings the look into the 21st century! Angled ends frame the face. Remember to get the stacked back!
© Evolve Hair Studio. This sharp point has its own extra flair, and with highlights in dark pink and gold, it’s the sure fire way to express yourself. The clean shape curves around the back, and some feathered bangs are off to the side.
Sleek and Surreptitious Stacked Bobs Hairstyles
© FRIX Hairdesign. Slightly stacked in the back, this angled bob is great for those with very straight hair. The main shape of the style cradles the back of the head, seeming almost to be a Flapper Style, but the point below the ears says otherwise.
Stylish Gray Blunt Bob Hairstyle
© Chris McMillan The Salon. If your hair is thicker, but still straight, you might want to try out this cut. Its chin length makes it suitable for square and round shaped faces, since it will help you to conceal some of those features you’d rather not draw attention to.
A-line Straight Blunt Bob Haircut
© Colleen Duffy, Cleen Cuts. Here’s one style that will work just as well with highlights as it will with ombre hair. That’s because its classic cut will act like a blank canvas framing your face elegantly – it’s ready to be creatively enhanced.
Inward-turned Blunt Bobs Hairstyles
© Erica Huston. Blunt bob haircuts are often styled super straight which gives a rather strict feel that doesn’t flatter everyone. If you want a softer and more feminine look, slightly curl the edges in and add long side bangs to complete the look.
Modern Soft Pink Bobby Hairstyle
© Chris McMillan The Salon. All future blunt haircuts should definitely take inspiration from this one because it is pretty perfect. This A-line Bob is lightly angled, featuring a medium length and worn totally straight to ensure that the precision cut is seen with no distraction. The only extra touch is the soft side bang that completes the look.
Center Parted Straight Bob Haircuts
© Caisa Airmet. There are few hairstyles that look as polished and chic as a bluntly cut Bob, and this one is no exception. Featuring a flattering ash blonde hair color, medium length and sleek middle part, this blunt Bob is picture-perfect. It looks best when worn totally straight, which allows showcasing the precision of the haircut.
Blonde Shaggy Bob Haircut

Natural Curly Shaggy Bob with Bangs
© Kersti Pitre. Make sure you choose a cut that doesn’t fight against your locks’ natural texture. Her mid-length bob with bangs brings out the spiral curl in her hair beautifully.
Wavy Silver Long Shaggy Bob
© Chris McMillan The Salon. Banish thoughts that bobs can only come to your chin. They can be longer or shorter. For thick hair, try a long shaggy bob. It will show off your full tresses but it will not feel as hot and cumbersome as a longer style.
Messy Wavy Bob with Side Bangs
As Beyoncé says, “I woke up like this.” Bed head is the ultimate sexy texture for a blunt or textured shoulder length cut. Wispy side bangs blend seamlessly into the messy waves for a carefree look that invokes the mysterious yet approachable nature of the “girl next door.” This hairstyle works best with fine and medium thick hair textures.
Bob Haircut with Angled Bangs
© Mara Roszak Mare salon, Star Works Artists. Emma Stone has tried probably the most stunning style of all bob haircuts with side bangs! It’s soft and edgy at the same time. Kathleen’s locks have been parted with a deep side parting to let the bangs sweep across the forehead for the overall soft and romantic feel.
Choppy Bobs Hairstyles with Bangs
© Mara Roszak Mare salon, Star Works Artists. This short choppy bob makes you fall in love with it at first sight. The overall choppy texture, finely chopped angled layers and straight cut edge create a wonderful style you can’t look away. The muted copper is a modern go-to hue for redheads.
Curly Choppy Bob Haircuts
© STUDIO 417 SALON. Curls add dimension and texture to any hairstyle. They’re the perfect ingredient for cute bobs, too. Loose spiral curls like these tend to work best because they aren’t heavy, they still have movement, and they’re not as likely to get frizzy or lose shape.
Razored Bob Hairstyle
© Chris McMillan The Salon. Short choppy haircuts are jagged by nature, which in combination with a color gradient gives a nice volume boost for fine hair. It’s a good idea to add layers and maybe even bangs to give the classic cut a fresher, more modern edge.
