Short hair doesn’t have to be boring, especially when you are rocking a short bob. You can opt for a sleek, sophisticated short bob, and add your own flare by parting it down the middle or adding side sweep bangs.

Short Inverted Bob

Another popular way to wear the bob is to have it cut in a graduated, angular style, with the front being longer than the back.

Short Curly Bob

The bob also works great if you have wavy or curly hair, or if you just want to add some wave and texture to your bob. The textured, wavy bob does require a more layered, cut with blunt edges, but the results are a fun, flirty style with lots of volume.

Short Sleek Bob

To style a sleek and smooth bob, use a large round brush and your hair dryer. Be sure to aim the dryer down and in the direction of your brushing motion. You can also use a flat iron to achieve this look as well. Finish off with smoothing oil and your favorite hair spray.

Short Textured Bob

To give your bob some texture, be sure to spray with a heat styling texture spray, before drying. If you have fine hair, remove the diffuser from your hair dryer to help give you hair more lift. As you dry your hair use your hands to scrunch the hair and add texture. You can also use a conical curling iron to add in piecey curls or waves.
