Inverted bob hairstyles have also enjoyed a great deal of interest in recent years being preferred by a lot of women who wanted to go shorter but were not willing to adopt a classical bob hairstyle that sacrifices length from the front as well.
This hairstyle has another benefit that might convince women to choose it aside from hair length. An inverted bob hairstyle elongates the neckline and draws attention to fine lines, helping women mask flaws and appear younger at the same time. Female celebrities such as Rihanna, Katie Holmes, Paris Hilton or Jenny McCarthy have demonstrated the amazing versatility that this hairstyle can have as well as the power to highlight certain facial features.
Choppy layered hairstyles are a wonderful choice for those who are not satisfied with subtle changes and want a little more definition for your tresses. Choppy bob hairstyles can be styled in a variety of ways depending on the effect desired. This incredible versatility is the one that probably convinced celebrities like Sienna Miller, Lily Allen or Kirsten Storms to opt for shaggy layered hairstyles that allow a great variety of styling options for creating uneven, modern looking hairstyles with a slightly purposely messy texture, perfect for casual occasions as well as semi formal ones.

For those who like the refinement of classic bob hairstyles but don’t want to have to cut their tresses too short, long bob hairstyles might be the way to go. Long bob hairstyles are generally chosen by women who are well aware of the value of a signature style and are not willing to make dramatic changes to their hair style. Long bob hairstyles can have a powerful face framing effect especially if they are paired with bangs. The perfectly straight lines have a pretty dramatic effect contributing to a strong professional presence. Long bob hairstyles were chosen by celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow or Anne Hathaway.
Curly bob hairstyles are an optimal choice when adding a festive, elegant touch is desired or when trying to minimize the width of certain face shapes. Curly hairstyles have a great capacity to create a more oval face shape and soften facial features by modifying the angles in a positive way most of the time. If the problem added by curls can be problematic, you always have the alternative of opting for stylish wavy hairstyles that will still give you the elegant touch you are looking for without overwhelming your facial features. Soft uniform waves will suit most face shapes, adding a subtle frame to the face and emphasizing a layered hairstyle.
