#29: The Round-Brushed Bob
This style can be worn by all women. It is especially complemented by a deep part and swoopy bangs.
1. After shampooing, towel dry your hair. Ideally, you should allow your hair to dry naturally until it is about 50-75% dry.
2. Secure hair up, leaving out a one-inch section to start round brushing.
3. Using a round brush 2 inches in diameter, smooth out each section by holding a blow dryer approximately 1 inch from the section. Use a boar bristle for smoothing out thick, coarse hair, or a metal round brush to create body in fine hair.
4. Finish with a smoothing serum.
I like Unite Boosta Spray for body at the roots. Enjoy Hair and Skin Treatment Oil is also great to put in before and after the blowout to smooth hair.
Best Face Shapes and Hair Types:
People with fine, straight hair will certainly find it easier to round brush hair. Kinky, curly, frizzy hair poses more of a challenge. This hairstyle will soften round face shapes.
You will have a much easier time round brushing if you start when your hair is a little bit dry. I recommend letting hair air dry before starting. Be sure to over-direct hair when round brushing.
#30: The Full-Fringe Bob
With this style, the focus is all on the front! Even if you don’t have specific bangs already cut, you can still make this style work, because with a chin-length bob your hair is already fairly short.
This style is great if you have fine hair because the focus is all on the bangs! This style also shows off color very well. It can slim down longer face shapes as well as hide foreheads.
#31: The Big Sexy Curled Bob
This style can transform an everyday bob into something fancy shmancy in no time!
1. Start with dry hair. Be sure to leave out your bangs to copy the style shown above.
2. Secure hair up, leaving out a one-inch section to start curling. A 1″ curling iron is perfect for this hairstyle.
3. Spray each section with a light hairspray prior to curling.
4. Finish with a strong hold hairspray.
Bumble and Bumble Does It All Hairspray is great for spraying on hair before you curl.
Best Face Shapes and Hair Types:
This style will work well for everyone, as the curls will soften any face shape.
Be sure to avoid damaging your hair by keeping the curling iron on a lower heat. Typically, the middle heat setting on curling irons works well for most hair types. If your hair is coarser, you may need to turn the heat up just a bit.
#32: The Chin-Length French Bob
This simple to create style is perfect for everyday wear, and will give your chin-length hair some instant sass! If your hair has some layers, this French bob style will become an instant favorite.
For styling, try Moroccan Oil Strong Hairspray for a polished final look!
While this hairstyle will work on any face shape, it will be hard to create if your hair is all one length. Layers will give you more to work with for this specific style.
Having short hair is no excuse for monotony. Hopefully, you can now see that a chin-length bob can be one of the most versatile styles out there!
#33: Chin-Length Bob with Curtain Bangs
A chin-length bob with curtain bangs is ideal for a woman that does not want to spend a ton of time on her hair. The fringe is flirty and adds movement, making fine to medium hair a breeze to style.
#34: Ultra Sleek Chin-Length Bob Cut
For the reserved modern woman, an ultra-sleek bob cut at chin-length is super sophisticated. The precision itself captures the design and requires a strong eye for detail in your stylist. A flatiron and Skinny Serum by Paul Mitchell puts the perfect finishing touches on this cut.
#35: New Wave Chin-Length Bob with Bangs
This cut is a new wave approach to a blunt cut 60s bob. The look is somewhat classic, but throws in a modern touch with the bob undercut shaved all around. Women with straighter hair would do better with this haircut. It’s much easier to give straight hair texture than it is to smooth out curlier hair to show the blunt bob line at the chin. Because my model has the straight hair, it’s very easy for her to manage this style on her own.
#36: Textured Inverted Chin-Length Bob
Stylist Hiro created an amazing tousled inverted bob haircut on short hair for this woman.
#37: Alternative Bob
Go for an alternative to the classic bob. By cutting the bob chin-length and graduating the nape, gives it a chic and trendy air. As for products, use a light serum to give the hair sheen so the hair will have movement without being weighed down. To recreate this look, the hair should be shampooed, conditioned and wrapped with a styling foam. The client should then be placed under dryer before dry combing the hair down and flat ironing.
#38: Chin-Length Bob with Side-Swept Bangs for Women Over 50
You’ll want to try a chin-length bob with side-swept bangs if you’re a woman over 50. A medium-length cut modernizes your shape and can make you appear younger. Go for a side-swept bang for a dramatic effect and softening facial features. This shape is low-maintenance with a quick blow dry with a round brush, and a trim up about every 5-6 weeks.
