Bob hairstyles are a great canvas to show off a balayage. Short and to the point, when the cut is paired with subtly-different shades of blonde, it exemplifies effortless style. Add in layers to enhance the dimension of your look. `
#5: Glossy Reddish Brown Bob with V-Cut Layers
Glossy hair is the result of a routine centered around the health of your hair. The best way to maintain moisture and shine is to balance the levels of moisture and protein in your hair. Identify the amount of porosity in the strands to find your ideal products. Highly porous hair will need more protein, whereas the locks that are less porous require hydrating care.
#6: Choppy Inverted Bronde Bob
Can’t decide between blonde and brunette? Go for both with the bronde trend. Messy layers teamed with a stacked back will make the out-of-the-ordinary color even more special. It gives the bob some sass and class rolled into one.

The ever-popular medium bob looks even cuter given a choppy angled cut. Keep locks straight for a piece-y look that’ll have you the prettiest one on the block! Caramel highlights are the finishing touch.
#8: Shaggy Bronde Bob with Bright Highlights
Highlights are a fantastic way to bring a shaggy shoulder-length bob from drab to polished and chic. Balayage should only be one to two shades lighter than your base color. Adding lowlights or dark roots helps to accentuate the highlighting.

We love this cute medium bob haircut with razored layers. The waves make the look relaxed and flirty while the sun-kissed blonde keeps it young and fresh. If you have bangs, no need to chop them off. They’ll work perfectly with a shaggy bob.

For those who would rather not opt for an A-line cut, swoopy side bangs provide enough movement and dimension to a medium layered bob without any excessive edginess.
#13: V-Cut and Razored Blonde Bob
Make your cute medium bob even cuter by teasing out your hair. This gives it body and texture, which straight hair often needs. Set it with hairspray, for all day volume.
#14: Razored Bronde Bob with Ashy Balayage
A razored crop has a lot of texture that pairs well with an ashy blonde. To keep your color cool toned, utilize a purple shampoo and conditioner. Consider getting a quality UV protectant spray to further guard your pretty dye job.
#15: Angled Dimensional Bronde Bob with Layers
A rooty blonde is the perfect idea if you want a lighter toned hair without all the high maintenance upkeep. Routine root touch ups are especially damaging and expensive for women with darker hair as they are scheduled more frequently and often require longer processing time.

#19: Burgundy and Copper Balayage Bob for Brunettes
Warm tones are most suitable for those with olive or neutral skin undertones. Select golden, copper, or caramel hues to add a color detail to your current medium bob with layers.
#20: Brown Bob with Subtle Caramel Highlights
Above-the-shoulder hair is naturally lighter and, therefore, holds more volume and height. To emphasize body, tease the crown sections and brush hair over. Layers will naturally drape over the teased areas for a seamless look.

Blunt chin-length cuts are flattering and structured. If your hair is straight and lacks texture, give it this perfect shape and a beautiful color to shine and look flawless in simple hairstyles.
#24: Cropped Shoulder Length Cut
A shoulder length bob is one of the most popular lengths today because it is long enough to style in different ways while still retaining the ease of short hair.

Collarbone bob haircuts are making their presence known. This versatile cut can easily be dressed up for a professional look at work or toned down with scrunched in texture for those fun weekends out.
#29: Messy Bronde Bob with Jagged Ends
Nothing exudes cool girl vibes more than perfectly imperfect waves. Frizz and all, the shaggy tresses are easy and fun. If you want to recreate this modern take on the bob, use a large barrel curling wand on medium heat. Wrap small sections around the tool and hold for a few seconds. Once you’ve done this to the whole head, brush out the curls, give it a tousle and go.
#30: Gray Bob with Layers
A lot of layered bob haircuts are longer in the front and shorter in the back, which is the case with this medium length bob. The funky style benefits from long wispy layers that have been highlighted and brushed away from the face.

#39: Ash Blonde Razored Bob with Bangs
Contemporary meets classic in this medium bob with bangs swept to the side. The shape of the cut is easy to pull off regardless of your face shape, which makes it a universally flattering style. The gray and platinum dye job keeps the look modern and cool.

#41: A-Line Bob Haircut
Sometimes a unique hairstyle comes with just a little meddling with the measurement. Keep hair shorter on one side to bring an asymmetrical look that is gorgeous and fun to wear. Thin haired girls can rock the uneven look well, but it can be also pulled off with any texture.

#49: Textured Medium Hairstyle
This textured above-the-shoulder haircut is the work of a pro. Mixing very dark and light hair colors can sometimes produce a chunky, striped effect, but that is not the case here. The different colors are distinct in the wavy bob but they melt together to produce one harmonious look thanks to the layering.
#50: Brown Bob with Bangs
Bobs with bangs are beautiful, especially if you are looking for a cut that will soften a wide forehead or round face. Go for blunt, straight-across bangs reminiscent of childhood, or else opt for a wispy, multi-length side fringe.

Hair that falls just above the shoulders can benefit from some extra body. Use a large barrel curling iron to bring in some loose waves that accentuate highlights and frame your face. Pairing this style with bangs brings extra softness.
#52: Choppy Angled Bob with Caramel Balayage
A stacked bob hair style is a rewarding approach to shorter hair in terms of shape.

The cut works equally well with straight, slightly wavy, and curly hair, as the shape remains evident regardless of texture.

Elevate your bob style with the subtlest blonde highlights. This look is something easy to achieve if you’ve been growing out your balayage and are ready for a change. Chop off those bleached ends, when you want to give your hair a break from color, promoting healthier locks.
#56: Crisply Cut Blonde Bob
Classic and easy, the blunt bob cut is a style that never fails. Brighten it up with platinum highlights for a fresh finish. It keeps it sleek and easy to wear, day after day. The beauty of the bob is its fuss-free maintenance.
#57: Chic Bronde Bob for Straight Hair
If you want to upgrade your cute bob, it can be as simple as changing to a side part. The flipped-to-the-side look also brings fullness to straight hair. The bronde color complements the cut even more by giving it depth, with all the different shades melted together.
#58: Tousled Sandy Blonde Bob
Blow out your bob when you need a simple yet classy hairstyle that shows off your new cut and dye job. The blowout elevates the classic cut just enough.
#59: Long Choppy Platinum Bob
A medium-length bob in a bright platinum shade is a way to modernize the classic look. It’s young and daring, and is also great at covering up any grays. Whimsical waves throughout complement the fresh cut perfectly.
#60: Angled Sunny Blonde Bob for Straight Hair
Opt for a sleek bob style to showcase your blonde balayage. The colors are distinctly displayed across straight strands, emphasizing the boldness of the hairstyle. The slanted shape of the cut complements the svelte look with clean lines.
Bob haircuts are so fun and versatile – especially when you work in the medium length options that are ideal for girls who still love to be girly. Whether your hair is straight or curly, thin or ethnically natural, there is certainly a medium bob style that’s ready to work wonders on your mane.
2021 bob haircut
The bob - it was a hair cut that shocked society when it was first created by Polish-born hairdresser Antoine de Paris in France in 1909, and it's been in fashion ever since. Over a century later and it's still one of the hottest hairstyles to have; whether you opt for a long bob aka the Lob, a shoulder-grazing choppy style or a blunt jaw-skimmer - the bob is the A-list hairstyle du jour.
'There are a few reasons for the resurgence of the bob,' says A-list hairstylist Paul Edmonds. 'Firstly, every woman I meet has been growing their hair for what seems like forever, so I think the new bob worn blunt with soft internal layers gives them the chance to have a haircut that can be worn in many ways, without having to grow it.'
But how can you make your bob more 2021 than 1920?
'Bobs are so versatile. You could have a French girl jaw-length flared out bob, or Charlize Theron's sleek slicked back at the sides with some height at the top bob,' explains Edmonds.

51 Bob Haircut Ideas to Try in 2021
While certain hair trends come and go, there's one look that will never go out of style: a bob haircut. While the cropped cut might be intimidating, it's a classic for a reason. Going chin-length is immediately attention-grabbing and puts all the focus on your face; plus, it's just way less hair to deal with.
According to celebrity hairstylist Alex Brown, blunt chin-length bobs are especially having a moment right now (think Rosamund Pike's immaculate sharp bob in I Care a Lot), but there are plenty of variations to choose from depending on your hair type and comfort level. Whether you go with a choppy, textured style or a blunt cut, short hair manages to look both modern and classic—and forever cool. We rounded up some of our favorite bob hairstyles (and a few lobs, if you're still not quite ready to go chin-length) to screenshot for your stylist. Scroll on for all the bob haircut inspiration you need.
