Adding bangs to a bob is an easy way to transform your haircut and achieve a new look. While classic short bangs might not be to everyone’s taste, it’s much easier to tweak side bangs to fit your current hairstyle.
We have plenty of haircut ideas and tips on styling a bob with side bangs, so if you want a change, check them out!
1. Side Bang Bob Hairstyle
The foundation of this haircut is the cutting technique. Subtle layers are added to a slightly angled bob to create volume at the crown, and the side bangs give it that coveted intentionally disheveled look.
2. Side Part Bob For Curly Hair
Creating a shape for curly hair depends on the type of curl, but layers are a must if you want to retain volume and bounce. Short bangs look cute if you have ringlets, while long bangs give you a choice to frame your face if you keep them down or sweep them away.
3. Lob Haircut With Side Bangs
Use your hair to your advantage if you want to balance your face shape. Long side bangs allow you to flip them however you want to achieve a look you’re happy with.
4. Short Bob Haircut With Side Bangs
Bangs and layers transform an ordinary bob into a cool-girl signature hairstyle. Experiment with the length of the bangs to find out what works best for you.
5. French Bob With Bangs
A classic French bob with a twist: instead of thick, straight bangs, go for a wispy, longer side-parted fringe that still looks romantic but is much more casual.
6. Stacked Bob With Bangs
Use a texturizing product to really work the amazing volume of this edgy stacked bob. Side bangs the same length as the layers at the crown will give you extra bounce!
7. Blunt Bob With Bangs
This short bob with side bangs frames the face flawlessly. Because it’s not a style that needs a lot of volume, texturizing spray and your fingers are all you need when blow-drying it to achieve a cool everyday look.
8. Long Bob With Bangs
A choppy lob with soft point-cut layers suits most hair types. If your hair is fine, the layers can be used to lift it, and if it’s thick, to take away unnecessary weight.
9. Curly Bob With Bangs
Getting the perfect cut is just the first step; how you take care of your short curly hair at home is just as important. Familiarize yourself with the right products and procedures for your hair type that will get the most out of your style.
10. Long Bob With Curtain Bangs
A long layered bob with side-parted curtain bangs looks amazing straightened, but because it’s such a relaxed style, the most stunning option is to wear it tousled or wavy.
11. Bob Haircut With Bangs For Thin Hair
A French bob with long bangs worn swept to the side sounds like something that’s exclusively for thick hair, but it can actually be used to give lots of volume to fine hair. Do it by strategically placing a curl or two and wearing the bangs as high as they’ll go.
12. Rounded Bob With Side Bangs
The elegant rounded bob is beautifully balanced and enhances the features. Blow-dry with a round brush for a sophisticated look, or air-dry for a more relaxed vibe.
13. Edgy Short Bob With Bangs
This edgy choppy bob is purposefully messy and wild to crank up the volume and emphasize the edgy vibe. Styles like this work best with unnatural hair colors.
14. Jaw Length Choppy Bob With Bangs
The seemingly flyaway strands are actually placed carefully to create an illusion of thicker hair. Fine hair tends to fall flat even if there’s a lot of it, so it’s best to avoid haircuts that are all the same length.
15. Medium Bob With Bangs
You can’t go wrong with a classic bob. Inward-curling ends and long lifted side bangs flatter the face and create an approachable and warm look.

18. Fine Hair French Bob
Bangs are the focus of this layered short bob. They’re used to frame the face and give the style an airy look.

22. Short Bob With Side Bangs
Even very short haircuts can be versatile. A bob cut just below the ears will look different depending on how you wear the bangs. It’s a fun way to play with your style to draw attention to your features or change up your look.
23. Inverted Bob Haircut With Bangs
An inverted bob works with thin and thick hair—soft layers at the crown create volume and remove the weight from the bottom. Side bangs are used to make the style fit your face for a one-of-the-kind look.
24. Classic Bob With Side Part
If you want a classic bob with a modern twist, long bangs worn in a deep side part are a great way to update this timeless style.
25. Curly Bob With Side Bangs

31. Long Bob With Side Bangs
Long and delicate side bangs aren’t a commitment—you can easily hide them if you tuck or sweep them just right—but they transform any style by giving it a chic touch.
32. Feathered Bob With Side Bangs
A rounded bob with feathered ends creates a fuller look, regardless of your hair type, but it also has a lot of movement, which keeps it from looking stuffy.
33. Choppy Layered Bob With Bangs
This medium-length bob has both texture and movement, thanks to the cleverly cut layers: while the ends are blunt, the bulk has been removed by point-cutting the layers.

Volume, volume, volume! That’s what this short blonde bob with side bangs is all about. Blow-dry your hair away from the scalp and in the opposite direction than you want it to lie in. Let each strand cool off before styling it further to achieve a lasting lift.
39. Lob With Long Bangs
A long bob with long bangs has been trendy for a while now, but its popularity isn’t waning. The easiest way to get the stylishly messy look is to use a curling wand with a large barrel. Wrap your hair around it once while holding the ends in your hand to keep them straight.
40. Medium Layered Bob With Curtain Bangs
Curtain bangs are often worn with a center part, but they look just as attractive parted on the side if that’s what you prefer. Side-parted curtain bangs fit particularly well with a layered cut.
41. Curly Medium Length Bob With Side Bangs
Coily hair needs to be shaped precisely to fall just right, but more importantly, you need to provide it with plenty of moisture to keep it healthy if you want a bouncy bob.
42. Straight Lob With Side Bangs
A straight lob can make your face look longer—which is great if that’s what you’re after and not so much if your face is already long—and adding straight full fringe can have the opposite effect. If you’re looking for the middle ground, opt for long side-swept bangs.

50. Medium Bob With Feathered Side Bangs
If you have fine hair, feathered bangs are an easy way to add volume. Wearing them to the side or tousled gives you lift at the crown and creates movement. Avoid using too much styling product to keep your hair flowy.
51. Short Tousled Bob With Side Bangs
A short bob with side bangs is a breeze to style, especially if you prefer a tousled look. Add a bit of anti frizz product and let your hair air-dry or give it a bit more texture using mousse and a hairdryer.
