Just chop it all off! Short hair has numerous advantages – manageability, trendiness and versatility, to name a few. This article will detail 40 angled bob cuts and give you insight as to why they are so hot and popular!
The Most Inspiring Angled Bob Haircuts
Angled bobs are the most versatile of all haircuts. You can wear it straight or wavy, style updos or half up hairstyles. Here are the best haircut ideas for you.
#1: Blonde Contouring
Short angled hairstyles boast of beautiful shapes that can be enhanced by color. The layered locks of this asymmetrical brunette bob are grazed with golden blonde strokes, with the emphasis on the angled front piece.
#2: Medium Golden Bob
When it comes to angled bob hairstyles, pictures of the side view are the most inspiring. This set of medium curls is angled down over the shoulder, creating a longer look in the front.
#3: Twisted Sister Chop
This medium, shoulder length style is simple, yet oh-so-eye-catching! Angled with longer layers towards the front and stacked in the back, this bob can be created using large rollers or simple twists of the curling iron. Then simply spritz and go!
#4: Wavy Pastel Pink Bob
A baby pink hue combined with wavy curls balances the edge of the angled hairdo with a feminine sensibility. Unicorn-worthy shades are the way to go if you are trying to show off your sweet side.
#5: Purple-Pink Asymmetrical Bob
Beautiful shades of magenta and violet enliven this sleek angled bob. The subtle, gradient dye job creates a serious visual interest, with the darker, stacked back enhancing the depth and drama of the asymmetrical cut.
#6: Blonde Balayage Bob
Brighten your brown bob with a subtle balayage. The cool blonde highlights amp up the chic-factor of the chin-length coif, while the loose waves complete its effortless appeal.
#7: Choppy Blonde Hairstyle
Angled cuts by nature give an illusion of volume to fine strands. When your hairdo is choppy and layered, it enhances the fullness even more. Another perk—you don’t have to worry about the layers being neat and kept, because the frizz only complements the cool style.
#8: Platinum Blonde Bob with Pink Highlights
Platinum blonde is certainly eye-catching, especially on angled bob haircuts. If you want to make a statement, team the bleached tresses with pastel highlights and ample volume. Tease around the crown of the head with a fine toothcomb and use hairspray to recreate a bob with just as much height and volume as shown in the image.
#9: Brunette Medium Angled Bob
Just barely skimming the shoulders, this medium-length bob is a sophisticated choice that anyone could easily pull off. A deep side-part gives it a little extra drama, while still maintaining understated allure.
#10: Loose Curls and Bangs
Nothing is sweeter than curls and bangs, but a sultry brown palette can keep your angled cut from seeming too innocent. Frizzies and flyaways only make this bob better by enhancing its texture. If you’re seeking a hairdo to match your laid-back personality, then this perfectly messy cut is for you.
#11: Caramel Bob with Side Bangs
This angled bob with bangs makes a case for just how stunning a simple coif can be. A side-swept fringe is always a nice touch, especially if you have straight tresses. The haircut is low maintenance without skimping on style. Just give it a little fluff before you head out the door, and you’re good to go.
#12: Jet Black Long Bob
With the angled front falling well below the collarbone, this lob is as sexy as it is sleek. The deep black hue enhances the mystique. You can opt for some highlights or color if you want to brighten up the hairdo, but the noir shade is essential if you want something that radiates polish and confidence.
#13: Voluptuous Balayage
Never underestimate the power of loose curls. Their mesmerizing texture transforms a would-be-blah coif into something full of volume and feminine style. A blonde balayage only accentuates its glamour and classic appeal.
#14: Wavy Medium-Length Bob with Highlights
Angled bob hairstyles don’t always have to rely on sharp and dramatic cuts to be modern and trendy, as shown in this picture and the other images. Only a little longer in the front than the back, it’s a big enough difference to count. The slanting lines mixed with subtle layers give it volume, while highlights throughout enhance the appearance of depth.
#15: Sharp Angled Black and Purple Bob
The jet black base against the vibrant violet highlights creates a punk-inspired ‘do that transcends the trends. The sleek lines and fun colors are a timeless choice for someone trying to show off their edgier side, while still keeping the coif a little playful.
#16: Ashen Lilac Angled Bob
Classic cuts like wavy lobs are the perfect canvas for more adventurous colors. They pare back the fun color so that your hairstyle is a little more toned down for the office or class. Try a muted shade, like this subdued lilac, for a hairdo that spotlights your personality while still looking polished.
#17: Black Beauty with a Stacked Bob
If you love the idea of a short cut, but can’t bring yourself to chop off all your locks, why not compromise with a long angled bob. Hold onto your length with a longer front, and opt for a stacked back to get that desired ease that goes with short hair.
#18: Angled Haircut with Subtle Highlights
Sometimes a solid hue can feel a little flat, but high-contrast streaks might not be your style. If you want to enliven your look in a subtle way, get highlights that are a shade or two lighter than your base. This will give you that extra oomph you’re craving.
#19: Sunset-Hued Bob
Vivid peach and pink hues create a sunset-inspired style, using the sleek angled bob as a backdrop. The colors’ warmth is especially beautiful against tanned skin. As an added bonus, the chin-length strands elongate the face, giving you a slimming effect.
#20: Grey and Wavy Tresses
A washed-out grey adds a sexy spin to this angled haircut. The shade looks especially ethereal against paler complexions, although it would still beautifully pop against those with more melanin. Enhance the mystique of the hairdo with a deep side part and let your wavy tresses fall across your face.
#21: Wispy Balayage
Wispy waves and a blonde balayage are beautiful ways to keep a chin-length bob contemporary. It’s a fuss-free and smart choice if you’re not trying to commit to a full head of bleach blonde locks. Just add a few lighter pieces to brighten the face and give you that sought-after it-girl look.
#22: Sharp Angled Fuschia Bob
With vibrant or bold color choices, it’s best to go with a sleek coif. When the hair is short and straight, it makes the electric hue the main focus. It’s not to say big curls and long locks aren’t beautiful with a fuchsia hue, but there’s just something alluring about a cropped cut that exudes sophistication.
#23: Beautiful Blonde Bob with Layers
Between the highlights and wispy layers, this short angled bob is full of dimension. The easy everyday hairstyle is endearing, but it’s also appropriate for special events. Basically, with a coif like this, it’s hard to not look the part wherever you go.
#24: Anakin Skywalker Bob
Are you looking for new ideas about how to style short, straight hair? Try out this clean cut bob with only a small bit of layering in the back. A hint of violet streaks the longer front section, which spices things up a bit!
#25: Classy and Professional Bob
Wavy hair has its pros and cons, and sometimes, those waves need the silhouette of a bob to control them. Try this style with medium length for something new. It still has an angle, but it’s definitely less defined, giving you a bit of wiggle room at the ends.
#26: Silken Waves of Long Bob
For a new, edgy look that is sophisticated and ready for anything, try this gorgeous long bob. A very steep angle shoots down and towards the front, while the smooth nape features the flaring line of the back.
#27: 60’s Long Bob
This very cute and popular hairstyle has all the benefits of a short style but it features enough length to reach past the shoulders. Heavier, straight bangs define the top edge of the face, while gentle curls at the bottom finish the frame softly.
#28: Asymmetrical Lob
Looking for a long bob? This simple and classic bob has just a teeny bit more length on one side. You can choose which one, of course. Shape the bottom to curl under, and add a curved side part to create more depth.
#29: Sleek and Stealthy Stacked Bob
Slightly stacked in the back, this angled bob is great for those with very straight hair. The main shape of the style cradles the back of the head, seeming almost to be a Flapper Style, but the point below the ears says otherwise.
#30: Angled Bob with Bangs
To lengthen a round face, you want to keep the front longer. Try light side swept bangs, which can be longer or shorter, and make sure to give the ends a bit of texture. Faint burgundy at the tips allows the style to glow from underneath.
#31: Choppy Layered Bob with Bangs
The choppy, layered bob is a great hair cut for those women who like to look a bit edgy but feminine. The choppiness in the layers adds sharpness to the cut that is easy to style and wear daily. Thanks to the fairly heavy, layered forehead bangs, it gives the face a slender appearance, minimizing the forehead and emphasizing the eyes. This type of cut is good for those with oval and oblong face shapes.
#32: Classic Blunt A-Line Bob
The classic blunt A-line bob is a timeless hair style that works for almost any face shape. It typically falls right between the jaw and the shoulder. It is still long enough to throw up in a ponytail and short enough to make a statement when styled as a downdo. Also, it gives the appearance of thicker hair!
#33: Blonde Bob with Straight Bangs
The blunt, shoulder length bob cut is very posh glam. It has a certain couture essence that really makes its wearer shine. Because it features the collar-bone length, it does not curl off at the jaw line. This elongates the face and slims the cheeks. The forehead bangs taper off to accentuate the eyes and lips in the most beautiful way.
#34: Blunt Asymmetrical Bob
This blunt, asymmetrical bob is very sassy and it gives any face a fancy appearance. This look is beautiful on square face shapes, because the length extends past the jaw line and elongates the face. Also, the deep side part, tricks the eye into seeing a narrower face shape. The asymmetrical cut is very edgy and chic!
#35: Angled Bob with Long Side Bangs
This blunt, asymmetrical bob with long bangs is phenomenal for those of us with rounder face shapes. Also, the subtle layers towards the ends cause the asymmetry to look much more dramatic! This is what you want when you are trying to make a fashion statement.
#36: Rounded Chin-Length Bob with Bangs
Anna Wintour’s signature bob is very corky and cute! It is very suiting for outgoing, hipster personalities. The advantage of having a rounded chin-length bob is that you have enough body and volume. You can achieve height at the crown by lightly teasing or going in with a round brush while blow drying!
#37: Angled Haircut with a Feathered Finish
This feathered, jaw length bob is an adorable approach to professional hair! It says “Here’s an ambitious business woman” while it also whispers, “She is young and fun!” With the length kept to a minimum and the layering at a maximum, the feathers are very prominent and they fall beautifully. A cut like this accentuates the chin while squaring off the cheeks.
#38: Easy-Going Collarbone Bob
A rounded lob is typically around a shoulder length. You can style the ends like in the photo – curled towards the face – to add a semi-circular shape to the hair cut. The flatness at the roots helps to dramatize the shape at the bottom.
#39: Posh Bob with Elongated Front Pieces
The posh bob is an amazing style for those who love to be fabulous at all times. It is very low maintenance yet it gives a very powerful vibe! Being parted down the middle, it slides down along the sides of the face, while remaining edgy with sharply cut angles.
#40: Cute and Simple Angled Bob
This simple bob is very attractive and it’s perfect for the girl next door! The length is just past the jaw, so you can wear it pulled back or simply down. Bluntly cut ends help to avoid any hard-to-manage layers. It may be plain, but there is really nothing wrong with someone who doesn’t like a lot of drama to their hair!
These 40 angled bob hair cuts are all very appealing and certainly worth a shot! Some suit specific audiences yet most of them can be worn by any lady in any setting. Next time you want to refresh your medium-length haircut, be sure to visit your stylist and have them give you one of these chic new looks!
