Bob is a great cut option for those with fine hair because it keeps its own shape. If you’ve always kept your thin hair long, take a trip to the other side and discover how beautiful you’ll feel with this short blonde bob.

A short and shaggy cut always has a sort of “girl next door” appeal, but this one also looks ultra-feminine and seriously flattering! To make the hairdo less casual, add blonde highlights to help you carry this style from the boardroom to the bar without missing a beat.
#15: Medium Wavy Hair with Blonde Balayage

#20: Shaggy Bob with Loose Waves
Naturally textured hair is always alluring, and sometimes it’s best to just go with the flow when it comes to your everyday look. Instead of rocking a platinum dye, try a more low-key option with dimensional highlights that will grow out nicely.
#21: Blonde Textured Bob Haircut
This simple yet stylish haircut looks gorgeous! The straight ends show off the defined shape of the cut, whereas the mid-shaft waves add volume and messy texture. This is a good option for thin-haired girls who are ready to cut their hair short.
#22: Caramel Blonde Bob for Black Hair Base
Girls with natural black hair don’t have to bleach it completely for a lighter look. This caramel blonde bob features dark roots with a blonde body of hair. The darker shade of blonde matches deep skin tones perfectly. You can also use this style if you’re growing out your natural hair color.
#23: Voluminous Peachy Lob with Bangs
With this fluffy peachy lob, your hair will look absolutely stunning! Use this styling technique to add body to flat hair and make your mane look fuller. The shaggy curls make the lob much less defined and severe than the average straight-cut bob.
#24: Ash Blonde Lob with Waves

Soft and feminine, this hairstyle looks amazing with bleached blonde tresses. Remember that such dramatic brown to blonde lightening will take several sessions. The more gradual the transition, the more beautiful and healthy result you will get in the end.
#26: Wavy Caramel Lob
Bob length is great for naturally wavy and curly hair, as it means the texture is not weighted down and stretched. Go with darker blonde shades to be more gentle with your hair type and remember to follow the right wavy hair routine to ensure your ringlets hold all day long.
#27: Angled Straight Blonde Bob
This poker straight blonde lob is so neat that it looks almost futuristic. A simple cut and a sophisticated color make a refined look. Coordinate the cut and the color with your skin tone and face shape to find your best bet.

#29: Blonde Shaggy Bob Hairstyle
This cute bob is great for girls who want to add some volume to their hair. Start with a classic shaggy bob haircut, then add loose curls from your bangs to the back of your hair. Highlight your hair with yellow tones to give your locks extra dimension.
#30: Wavy Lob with Sweeping Bangs
If you want a face-framing cut with personality, a lob with side bangs is the perfect way to go. The long feathered locks create a neat shape around the face, whereas the sweeping fringe makes the look more youthful. This style is universally flattering as it suits all face shapes.
#31: Inverted Bob for Thin Hair
Curls are not the only way to achieve volume as demonstrated by this bouncy bob. Take advantage of an angled style that uses short layers to create volume in the back and sleek long layers in the front to frame the face without overpowering it.

Inspired by the angled cuts of celebrities like Victoria Beckham, super straight bob with clearly defined angles is a great style when you’re looking to make a statement. From the runway to the office hallway, this is one ‘do that’s sure to grab attention.
#33: Stacked White Blonde Bob
A stacked bob is so popular that sometimes it can become too expected in some circles. This style is perfect for women who are already sporting a layered blonde bob hairstyle and are growing weary of it. Get your layers feathered in the back to provide texture, while keeping the sections in the front straight and angled. It’s a simple change that breathes new life into your look.
#34: Striking Angled Platinum Lob
A steep angle can make blonde bob haircuts both eye-catching and sophisticated. The extreme difference in length between the back and front is a great statement piece. Be warned, this style looks best on straight hair!
#35: Curly Highlighted Bob
Here’s yet another style that shows bobs don’t have to be straight! This style is surprisingly easy to style too, just leave the bottom layer natural. If you have relatively straight hair, then add a handful of curls to the top layer, using a curling wand.
#36: Blonde Bob with Side Bangs
Smaller faces can sometimes get overwhelmed with too much hair in the face, which is why this style is so wonderful. The side bang offers a flirty touch, and the shorter length and shaggy layers keep the look light and fun.
#37: Voluminous Stacked Cut
Thicker hair textures can still take advantage of a layered bob style — actually it is recommended. The layered cut keeps the fullness in the back without bringing the heaviness to the front around the face. The two-tone color with a light strawberry blonde on the bottom creates the right depth and keeps the look from seeming too overwhelming.
#38: Asymmetry Enhanced by Color
Ask your salon stylist to keep a generous section of hair longer than the rest of your bob, and then define it with a color of your choice to really show it off. Any hue will do, as blonde hair pairs well with practically any shade.
#39: Curly Angled Bob
Ladies with very thick hair have the benefit of being able to pull off an angled curly bob. This blonde lob features cute dimensional curls of the perfect length and a cool silhouette of a steeply angled bob, slightly softened thanks to the texture.
#40: Classic Bob with a Modern Twist
A classic bob is made more beautiful with longer sides. Modernizing the traditional bob haircut is perfect for those who want a different look but are feeling a little gun shy. This cut doesn’t involve a huge risk, but it is also capable of doing cool things like bringing volume to thin, lifeless locks.
Trends may come and go, but it is clear that blonde bob is one classic look that will never go out of style. Pick the cut that flatters your face shape and think of your own most beautiful blonde shade to achieve a truly individual style.
