Cute Wavy Bob Haircuts and Hairstyles to Try This Season
Angled, stacked, graded and A-line bobs are all in favor. Chose the cut according to your hair type and preferred length. Any of these can be worn straight or wavy.
#1: Shoulder-Length Spiraled Bob
While having a curly style with straight bangs used to be seen as a faux pas, it can work with shorter styles because it helps to blend different layers. Straight pieces in the front will frame the face and work especially well to slim chubby cheeks.
#2: Graduated A-Line Bob
Long or short, brown or blonde? Women often can’t decide. Luckily, there are such compromise styles like this one. Elongated and highlighted front pieces are something we like so much! These charming soft waves will be flattering for round faces.
#3: Wavy Choppy Ash Brown Bob
There’s something about the soft waves in a short choppy bob that gives it a charming girlish feel. The ashy brown angled cut is fresh and easy, with a sense of fullness and volume. It’s an excellent choice for the woman whose hair tends to be thin or a little flat at times.
#4: Light Lob with Large Messy Waves
Do you have what it takes to rock a long wavy bob? Gorgeous, blonde, and free flowing; it hits the shoulders running. Simple and quick to style, you can go to sleep with a few comfy braids; and in the morning shake ‘em loose and you’re ready to go beachy!
#5: Messy Wavy Brown Lob
Dark, smoldering, and shoulder-length; it’s not your grandma’s bob hairstyle. In fact, it’s anything but old-fashioned! The natural brown base color highlighted with rusty-red tones draws out the exotic nature that resides within any confident woman. An added benefit? The messy long waves are a breeze to style and maintain.
#6: Basic Wavy Bob
In terms of styling, the layered cut shown in this photo is probably the most common bob hairstyle. This is because the stacking in the back allows for fullness in the cropped style while the long layers around the face provide softness and framing.
#7: Tousled Combover Lob
A sophisticated caramel-blonde lob is probably not the first thing that pops into your mind when you hear the word “combover.” Meant to be worn by a sassy woman who enjoys flipping her hair to the side; the slightly wavy strands and the scattered tendrils frame the face and encourage you to turn on your best “come hither” gaze.
#8: Rounded and Feathered Bob Haircut
Looking for a rounded short wavy bob that will work great in and out of the office? Try a feathered and textured bob cut on for size. Hitting just below the jawline, the chunky layers work great for most face shapes, and the unique strawberry blonde color attracts the eye whether you’re coming or going.
#9: Feminine Peek-a-Boo Bob
Are you feeling sultry and mysterious, or shy and unassuming? Whatever mood you’re in, one thing’s for sure: you’ll be feeling ultra-feminine with a longer tousled bob. Keep them guessing as you “peek-a-boo” from behind the sexy swoop of wavy blonde hair that strategically falls just in front of one of your eyes.
#10: Natural Looking Bob
Sometimes it’s best to stick with the tried and true when it comes to styling your long wavy bob. Natural colors that complement each other will look good at a variety of different events and can easily take you from day to night without needing to change a thing.
#11: Straight-Cut Lob with Textured Ends and Waves
If you’re feeling youthful and looking for a super-fashionable and comfy bob, a textured shoulder-length lob might be the best way to go. Try a mixture of subtle cool- and warm-toned highlights for a more modern, visually interesting style.

#13: One-Length Beachy Textured Bob
A little movement in your bob can make your look go from classic to wild. Wavy layered hair is a hot topic this year. Add darker roots and super blonde balayage, and you’ll get a cool voguish look. The beachy feel is achieved by textured, tousled strands.
#14: Loosely Curled and Tousled Lob
A great option for outdoorsy and active types, the loose midshaft-to-ends curls of the tousled lob look spectacular when they flow freely and gently touch the collarbone. The long deep chocolate brown waves and the classic center part line mean that it can be easily gathered in a flouncy ponytail when you’re exercising or out on a hike.

Perfect for a romantic date night or a girls’ night out.
#19: Tousled Wavy Bob with Bangs

#20: Uneven Piece-y Wavy Bob
Blonde and sassy-tastic, there’s a lot to be said for the woman who wears a piece-y wavy bob hairstyle. Full and voluptuous, highlights shimmer throughout the choppy bob; perfect for dancing the night away at your favorite club. The uneven ends that meet at the neck are a unique surprise.
#21: Casual-Chic Medium Messy Bob
Medium wavy bob haircuts that carry a summer feeling in their highlights literally beg for natural, flowing and disheveled styling. The above-the-shoulder length cut with textured ends conveys a light feel with easy-going movement. Casual chic for every day. A happy, fun style for wavy hair.
#22: Angled Choppy Bob with Jagged Edges
The best of both worlds; short, textured locks drop into increasingly longer bright blonde waves that hit the collarbone. An angled choppy bob is just right for the lady who enjoys the public eye, and even though the ends are jagged and uneven, it’s not a cookie cutter hairstyle by a long shot.
#23: Edgy Choppy Dark Blonde Bob
If you struggle to get your thin straight hair looking healthy and voluminous, try a choppy, layered bob with white-blonde highlights peeking at the tips. The choppy cutting technique builds up thickness and fullness, and the jagged edges give a sense of style and personality to this modern bob.
#24: Careless Choppy Bronde Bob
Whoever invented the word “bronde” must have had this fantastic color in mind. You can play up the tone of your choice with strategic wardrobe selections and makeup palettes. It’s a wavy bob haircut that is fresh and youthful.
#25: Whimsical Two-Tone Bob
This medium wavy bob is upgraded with a beautiful fade from a natural color to a whimsical one. The choppy texture through the ends enhances the volume and draws attention to the color transition.
#26: Side-Parted Wispy Cut
Bring in some cozy light with this illuminating hairstyle. The tousled wavy hair is a dream with a mesmerizing blend of dark and light colors. Graduated layers and a shoulder length provide the sufficient volume while showing off a wispy texture. Loose curling and ruffling can make the style stand out even more.
#27: Angled Choppy and Wavy Bob
This wavy bob features a lot of layering, and the whole style is textured and razored to come up with a finish that looks very uneven, yet somehow structured. The creamy blonde color with dark roots creates a perfect canvas for the lines of the style. The wavy layered strands are well defined and help in achieving an edgy and bristled effect.
#28: Chic Windblown Short Bob
This wavy layered strawberry candy bob has an amazing volume thanks to the cut. The soft layered pieces are styled in a playful whirlwind motion.

#29: Short Choppy Bob with Dimensional Waves
Whether you work in a corporate environment or an art gallery, you’ll be the center of attention when you take a chance with a chocolate and golden blonde choppy bob. The stacked dimensional waves barely have a bent, and the rounded shape is shattered which offers it a super-stylish edge.
#30: Long Disconnected Wavy Bob
Wintry blonde waves with thin golden highlights are what give this cute disconnected bob such an irresistible beachy feel. The extra-long length means it’s convenient to occasionally put it into an updo, but we’d suggest that you never choose to hide the slightly textured waves and jagged ends in an ordinary ponytail. What a waste!
#31: Full-of-Movement Brunette Bob
Just a teeny bit boyish, going for a wavy bob with bangs is a fantastic way to bring attention to your feminine confidence. The deep brown tones shimmer in the sunlight even if it’s a solid color. It’s a slightly 70’s retro-style that’s perfect for naturally thick and wavy hair.
#32: Shaggy Highlighted Brunette Bob for Thick Hair
Did somebody say: “brunette bob shag”? An excellent choice for the woman who struggles with hair-thickness challenges; a curvy voluminous bob is the best way to work with what you’ve got. Deep browns are grazed with copper highlights at the tips. Your hard-to-manage hair has just got a whole lot easier!
#33: Bob with Large Dimensional Curls
Soda-can-sized curls provide a distinctively retro-style that reminds us of the Hollywood starlets from the 1940s. Of course, back then, they didn’t have the variety of colors the balayage offers today. The chocolate-brown base highlighted with strawberry blonde hues will make you feel like you’re on the red carpet (even when you’re just at the supermarket)!
#34: Choppy Wavy Angled Bob for Fine Hair
If you have difficulties livening up your flat and fine hair, we might just have the right hairstyle for you. Flip your head upside-down, scrunch the hair with some light hold styling mousse and it will stay weightless and voluminous all-day long. The classic bronde tones in a medium wavy bob give a sense of volume and lift that also helps to combat the flatness.
#35: Wavy Layered Bob with Flicks
Medium length, rounded silhouette and layers are another great idea of a flattering bob for thick hair. If your hair is slightly curly from nature, you’ll get those lovely flicks without any styling. If not, use a large-barrel curling iron to shape the ends.
#36: Cute Coffee-Colored Bob
Dark hair is sexy for many reasons — it looks healthier and reflects shine better. These are just a few of those reasons. But, the downside of having dark hair with a wavy bob is that it can look a little too dense. The best way to make it more lightweight is with highlights in a lighter color that will add dimension and break up the cut.
#37: Sexy Black Bob
Not everyone’s hair texture is naturally wavy, but that does not mean that sexy tousled waves can’t be achieved with a curling iron. The key is to quickly wrap hair in alternating directions starting from the middle of each strand to keep them from turning into spiral curls.
#38: Long Blonde Wavy Bob
The messy long bob is all the rage right now, and this one looks simply breathtaking. The soft highlighted waves are loosely curled in an S-pattern. Strands are cut to graze the shoulders with voluminous layers. The hairdo is generously tousled and textured to form a windblown style that is high on vogue.
#39: Straight Cut Wavy Bob
If you have thick straight strands, it’s important to get rid of added weight especially in a blunt cut. This textured look was created with a Donald Scott Carving Comb that creates a fun razored style effortlessly and in no time.
#40: Ash Blonde Spirals
Make a wavy bob your own with the help of some expert color that is tailored to your skin tone. This beautiful balayage pairs well with her slightly tanned complexion because the ash hues create a good contrast and won’t add any ruddiness.
#41: Layered Lob with Balayage
This long wavy bob is so adorable, it makes you want to reach out and touch those angled caramel strands. The shaggy wavy texture of the hairstyle is divine and looks much more interesting than casual hair. The beautiful caramel waves are incredibly shiny and stand out very well against the deep brown base. We simply love this wavy angled lob!
#42: Side-Swept Bob for Fine Hair
The wavy bob is the must-have style of the year. The textured cut is perfect for volume and softening sharp facial features. The angle in the front creates fullness, and the deep side part pulls double duty by also slimming round cheeks.
#43: Pastel Colored Bob
Because the long wavy bob is so popular, sometimes you need to do a little something extra to make it pop — and color is just the trick that you need. Known as red violet, this unique mix of maroon, mauve and rose gold is sure to turn more than a few heads.
#44: Wavy Half-Braided Bob
Wondering how else can you rock your messy bob? A simple half up side braid can add an interesting accent to your casual style. It’s a fun asymmetric twist that will take just another 2 minutes of your styling routine.
#45: Shimmery Highlights in Wavy Bob
Want a hairstyle that breathes with ease and nonchalance? Here’s a good example. The wavy angled layers provide a good balance of weight and volume. The loose, soft curls are wonderful in texture, and the lovely golden balayage brings them straight to absolute perfection.
#46: Short Wavy Bob with Side Bangs
Here is a way to boost thickness of your fine hair strands. Go for the shortest stacked bob version with feathered streaks, get some subtle highlights and style light messy waves.
#47: Shaggy Wavy Bob
If you have thick strands, a blunt cut can feel heavy in a medium length hairstyle. Because of this it’s best to incorporate a few light razored layers around the ends to give the cut a bit of airiness and movement. Achieve the piece-y separation that is popular with a bit of styling wax or sea salt spray.
#48: Medium Bob with Wavy Texture
This bob is angled very subtly, so it features practically the same length at the back and front. We love the textured disconnected ends and very light waves, actually just a slight bent, a hint on the wave.
#49: Feminine Blonde Lob
If you prefer longer hairstyle, you may go for this beautiful feminine peek-a-boo lob. You can wear it free-flowing like in the photo or experiment with asymmetrical hairstyles, half ups and updos.
#50: Toffee Ombre Bob
If low-key best describes your style, this is the look for you. The messier it gets the better it looks, so don’t be afraid to embrace your bed head waves. Plus, ombre is the perfect color technique because it allows you to embrace color without the need of frequent touch-ups.
