Short bob hairstyles are one of the most popular pages on this site, and for good reason. They are chic, stylish, and do easy to wear. Even better, there are so many different types of bob cuts that you can find one to suit your look, hair type, and lifestyle. Keep reading for 3 ways to wear the short layered bob.
Layering is simply different lengths within one haircut. While those vintage bobs are typically cut straight across all around, layers can add dimension and texture. It’s an updated look that removes bulk from heavy hair, tames curls, and creates an elegant side profile.
Also called a graduated bob, these layered cuts can take many different forms. This cut is similar to the one above but with less of an angle at the nape of the neck. This is a way to get this fabulous look for hair that tends to be thin or fine.
Now the big question, what does the short layered bob look like from the front? Simply stunning! Hair is longest at the front, hitting about chin length to frame the face. From there, hair angles up towards the back.
This cut looks best when hair curls under a little bit. Simple use a large round brush while blow drying. To do so, start with damp hair and apply a heat spray like Got2b Guardian Angel Blow Out Lotion with Gloss Finish that provides protection plus shine. Without using a brush or comb, divide hair into 4 sections, one high and low on each side. Then start blow drying the bottom sections, at this short length there’s no need to start curling hair just yet.
Now with the blow dry on low, take a healthy section of hair, pulling it out to on one side with the brush and rolling it in at the end so hair curls under. The low heat setting is a must because big round brushes are metal and heat up, applying heat directly to your hair. To finish, use a cool setting to seal the look. And you’ve got a beautiful short layered bob!
