Surprisingly easy to style and utterly versatile, the bottleneck bob quickly earned its position at the top of the 2023 hair trends list. A perfectly balanced combination of volume, texture and face-framing made a totally winning recipe for the best hairstyle for short to medium-length hair. The bottleneck bob can be comfortably adapted to cater to literally any face shape or hair type.
If you are wondering what the bottleneck bob is, here’s the answer. In short, it is a bob with bottleneck bangs – a type of face-framing that is something between curtain bangs and a full fringe. It is cut at an angle, normally splits in the middle, and resembles the neck of a glass bottle in shape. Apparently, that’s where its name comes from.
We are dying to share all the superb bottleneck bob ideas with you. Keep scrolling to find the best ways to rock this new trend below.
A heavily layered bob with deep bottleneck bangs will look stunning on thick wavy hair. A jawline length, tons of texture and volume at the crown total in a beautiful youthful style. Blow dry your hair using a large barrel brush and finish the look with some curl-enhancing serum.
Shoulder length is one of the easiest to wear and style, yet you might run the risk of it looking too generic and dull. Choppy bottlenecks would elevate your hairstyle and add that sophisticated personal touch.
It’s fascinating how a subtle touch of color can instantly add to the look. This seamlessly blended balayage and soft beachy waves make this layered bob an absolute dream hairstyle.
If you are seeking a hairstyle that would add volume to fine hair, this soft, feathered bob is a great option. Blow dry your bangs away from your face and use a wide barrel wand to recreate these beachy waves. Those with naturally curly or wavy hair might find it even easier to let their hair air dry.
Upgrade your favorite classic stacked bob cut to a top-trend bottleneck bob only by adding some face framing bangs. Cheekbone grazing length is a safe choice to try bangs and see if they fit your lifestyle.
We love this modern take on a French bob that employs long, flicked-out bottleneck bangs. Undoubtedly, it’s going to be one of the most popular haircuts this season. Run, don’t walk to get it before everyone else did.
If you are lucky to have naturally curly hair, make sure you ask your hairstylist to add some layers at the crown area. This would shift volume from the ends to the top and that’s exactly where you want it. Whilst we are always rooting for the Curly Girl method, perhaps you might need to straighten your bangs to make this hairstyle work.
While you might prefer to keep all your hair more or less the same length, some face-framing layers won’t hurt. Soft, feathered curtain bangs make any hairstyle more feminine and flattering.
Use a straightening iron to give your fringe a soft bend and create that iconic bottleneck look. Direct each side of your bangs away from the face and hold your tool facing down, perpendicular to the floor. This way you won’t over curl your hair and give it just a touch of a wave.
Transform your lifeless locks into a head-turning chic cut with just a slight change in length and by adding some layers. All you need to do is find the right hairdresser who can bring your dream haircut to life.
Bottleneck bangs are great to draw all the attention to your eyes and turn your classic bob into an ultra-trendy hairstyle. Wear it straight or add some waves with a wide barrel wand. Use some hairspray to keep your fringe bits away from your face.
What a cool way to elevate your haircut with complementary face-framing highlights, tracing the shape of your bangs and front layers. We are in love with all that dimension and movement.
Choosing the right length is everything when it comes to getting a bob. A short and blunt, chin grazing cut creates a fresh, youthful look. Complement it with deep choppy bangs that fall apart in the middle, and your perfect bottleneck bob is ready.
Seamless layers, soft waves, and eyebrow-skimming bangs is what shapes a dreamy modern bob haircut. Perhaps, razoring is the best technique to ask if you love this kind of textured haircut.
While they say there’s no one-fits-all option when it comes to choosing a hairstyle, this long bob with soft layered bangs would virtually suit everyone. The combination of perfectly blended balayage, face framing and slight layering makes a practically versatile look.
We are totally smitten by this fresh hair trend and hope you will share our love for the bottleneck bob. Whether you are thinking of a big hair change or just looking to add some new details to your existing bob, the bottleneck bangs are well worth your attention.
