Ready for an easy haircut that’s anything but ordinary? The asymmetrical bob is making a comeback, in shapes ranging from sophisticated to cheeky.
The asymmetrical bob is defined by an uneven, diagonal outline—it’s longer on one side of the head than the other. Depending on the angle and style you choose, it can be as simple or as dramatic as you please.
Here are the most stylish ways to wear this chic and edgy haircut.
1. Medium Blunt Asymmetrical Bob
This is a sexy and sensual way to rock the asymmetrical bob. The hair cascading over one eye is flirty and the longer side falls well past the shoulder, giving the impression of long hair. Luscious but still light!
2. Sleek Asymmetrical Bob Haircut
While an asymmetrical bob can be impactful in a dramatic, in-your-face way, a sleek and sophisticated version of this versatile cut is just as stunning.
3. Medium Asymmetrical Bob With Bangs
If you want to make color the focus of your hairstyle, you need a haircut that doesn’t overwhelm it. This green and neon-yellow combination is very eye-catching, so the straight asymmetrical bob with blunt baby bangs is simple yet interesting enough to balance it.
4. Undercut Short Asymmetrical Bob
This would be a very subtle asymmetrical bob if the shorter side wasn’t shaved. Instead, this is a cool undercut bob with lots of edge.
5. Blunt Asymmetrical Short Bob
A blunt one-length bob is one of the most elegant haircuts which never goes out of style. Slight asymmetry elevates it and makes it more interesting without changing the overall classic impression.
6. Blunt Asymmetrical Lob
Let’s be real: the wavy lob has been everyone’s go-to haircut for a while now, and even if you like it, it can get kind of repetitive. The uneven outline makes it more interesting and personal.
7. Choppy Long Inverted Bob
Long strands on one side of the face are just what this choppy bob decorated with soft waves needed to give it flair. Dark roots and caramel highlights are super pretty and easy to maintain.
8. Asymmetrical Long Bob
Bleaching the very tips of the longest pieces of this asymmetrical bob is a brilliant choice: the high contrast calls attention to the shape and makes the whole style pop.
9. Medium Asymmetrical Bob
The slight bend at the cheekbone level keeps this asymmetrical bob from being completely straight and too serious, while tucking the shorter side behind the ear is a charming way to open the face.
10. Asymmetrical Bob With Side Part
What’s the secret to keeping a simple style like this sleek asymmetrical bob looking good? Nourishing your hair so it stays healthy and hydrated. Regular trims and using heat protectant when curling or straightening your hair should do the trick.

The longest pieces of this asymmetrical bob not only add a bit of pizazz, they also create a flattering frame for the face.

This amazing hairstyle has it all: an asymmetrical outline, a creative parting, a vivid, unusual color and it’s as sleek as it gets. A true showstopper.
14. Fluffy Long Asymmetrical Bob
This bob hairstyle is very clever and can be worn in multiple ways. The whole fringe area is much longer than the sides and back, which means that when it’s parted on either side, it creates an asymmetrical look, and when it’s parted in the middle, it becomes an A-line bob.

22. Asymmetrical Wavy Bob
This jawline-length wavy asymmetrical bob would be cool enough as it is, but the hidden undercut on the short side makes it super edgy.
