Everyone wants a choppy bob. It’s no accident that this haircut has been hugely popular for the past few years: it’s nearly universally flattering.
If your hair is thin or fine, it adds texture and volume. If your hair is thick, the subtle layers are used to remove weight and create lift and movement.
Look through the different varieties of choppy bobs to find the one perfect for you.
1. Medium Choppy Haircut
This bob embodies the coveted model-off-duty vibe, effortless and cool. The choppy layers have been styled to create dimension and volume, and the copper color is warm and appealing.
2. Long Choppy Bob
A textured bob can make your hair look much thicker than it is without making it obvious. Here, layers on top have been cleverly cut and styled to lift the hair at the crown, while the blunt ends create an illusion of everything being the same length.
3. Wavy Choppy Bob
For the past few years, blunt choppy lob has been everywhere. Its popularity isn’t going down, and the haircut in this picture makes it clear why: it’s easy to style, flattering and looks good—or to sum up, because it’s the perfect hairstyle!
4. Textured Bob Haircut
You don’t need long hair for the blonde bombshell look: the deep side part and the peek-a-boo bangs swooping across one eye give this sensual bob a femme fatale vibe.
5. Choppy Bob With Bangs
Usually, straight-across bangs are worn with a sleek look and wispy ends are paired with tapered bangs. But here, the combination of choppy layers and cropped bangs results in a unique and interesting look.
6. Long Choppy Bob With Curtain Bangs
A choppy bob isn’t limited to beachy waves, even though that’s the most popular way to style it. There are lots of ways to wear one, including this retro 1970s-inspired style.
7. Curly Choppy Bob
Layers aren’t as noticeable in curly hair as in straight hair, but they still create shape and texture. Curly hair with choppy layers looks fuller, and the curls are lighter, bouncier and more manageable.
8. Messy Short Choppy Hairstyle
Everything about this hairstyle looks laid-back even though it’s all intentional: the shadow roots, the easy length, and the way it’s been parted have all been carefully styled to create a particular look.
9. Long Choppy Bob For Thick Hair
If you have thick hair and want to get rid of the bulk at the bottom without making your hair look rounded, go for choppy layers, as their different length keeps the hair from getting weighed down.
10. Lob With Textured Layers
Subtle layering in the back and point-cutting the ends results in bouncier tresses. The A-line shape and the long bangs frame the face and make this look extra modern!
11. Edgy Choppy Bob
Baby bangs might be trendy at the moment, but they’re also bold and unusual. If they’re your cup of tea, these jagged short bangs look deliberate and perfectly complement a choppy bob.
12. Low Maintenance Messy Bob Hairstyle
A choppy bob is easy to wear and easy to style. The layers take care of the volume, so you don’t have to blow-dry it unless you want a sleek look.
13. Choppy Lob With Curtain Bangs
Long curtain bangs, choppy layers and pretty waves work together to create a luxurious style, and the platinum blonde color takes it to an even higher level.
14. Edgy Short Choppy Haircut
This versatile haircut is a great fit for highly-customized, unique colors. Because a dramatic color is so eye-catching, a cut that can be worn in many ways makes your hair easier to style for different occasions.
15. Choppy Bob Haircut For Curly Hair
Choppy bobs are usually styled to achieve an edgy and trendy look, but that’s not the only way to wear them: loose curls and warm light-brown highlights work together to create a romantic and soft style.
16. Choppy Layered Bob For Thick Hair
Most of the time, colorists use lighter colors around the face to brighten it, but this style combines the lighter base with darker face-framing curtain bangs to create depth and interest.
17. Jaw Length Choppy Bob With Bangs
A short choppy bob with just enough fringe to create interest around the face looks charming and casual, and it’s especially cute tucked behind the ear.
18. Choppy Shoulder Length Layered Bob
If you want barely-there beachy waves, use a straightener after your hair is completely dry. While holding it horizontally, clamp a small section of hair between the plates and turn your hand about 90 degrees. Pull down gently to create a soft bend in the hair.
19. Choppy Bob Haircut
Same haircut, two hairstyles. The difference between straight, wavy and curly hair is quite dramatic with a choppy bob, so take your time to experiment with different textures.
20. Choppy Layered Hair With Bangs
The color and the texture achieved by the choppy layers turn what could be an ordinary haircut into a contemporary and cool style.
21. Wavy Long Bob Haircut With Fringe
Long layers give this long wavy bob movement without making it look layered, while the short, full bangs create a flirty, pin-up image.
22. Choppy Short Bob Hairstyle
When styling this kind of bob, you might be tempted to only bend the hair around ear level, but here’s a tip: add a bit of lift on top to create a more balanced style.
23. Messy Bob With Bangs
This casual and cute choppy haircut is fun and youthful, thanks to the flippy layers and the pink color with root shadow.
24. Choppy Ear Length Bob
When cut straight at the bottom, a bob can actually look like the hair at the nape is longer, so a slight angle is used to offset this. Longer layers near the face will make your choppy bob appear completely straight!
25. Long Edgy Bob Haircut
This unusual combination of colors is fresh and fun, and it’s coordinated with the cut so that the individual colors and layers work together.
26. Blunt Choppy Haircut
If you want bangs and can’t commit to a full chop, bottleneck bangs look amazing with shorter bobs. With soft graduation in the back and face-framing strands in the front, this haircut is flattering and super modern.
27. Choppy Layers For Curly Hair
For curly hair, using layers to carefully create shape opens up endless possibilities. With a skilled hand, it’s possible to achieve many styles, like this gorgeous halo of curls.
28. Choppy Layered Inverted Bob
The layers in this bob are long enough to create texture but avoid stacking. This kind of haircut can be elegant or trendy, depending on how you style it.

This hairstyle looks simple and effortless, but it’s actually complex and thought-out. The soft waves contrast the blunt ends to create visual interest, while the warm caramel highlights and soft layers keep it from looking one-dimensional.
32. Textured Medium Choppy Bob
Pink balayage, anyone? This fun color is only possible on bleached hair, so to keep your hair healthy, a shorter haircut like this bob is useful if you need regular trims.
33. Short Choppy Bob With Curtain Bangs
The kind of lift achieved using the layers and the bangs in this haircut elongates the face, so it’s very flattering if your face is round.
34. Jaw Length Edgy Choppy Bob
Split-tone color isn’t only for the indecisive but also for the bold. Pairing it with a blunt choppy bob works so well because such an eye-catching color needs a simple cut to balance it.
35. Choppy Bob For Fine Hair
Fine hair gets volume and dimension both from layers and shadowed roots, so a hairstyle like this one is a great choice if your hair needs a boost.
36. Wavy Medium Textured Bob
By just adding the long layers, this haircut gets lift and movement. Otherwise, it would fall flat and lack texture.

Bobs are long enough to let you change up your styling and short enough to keep your hair healthy while you experiment with color, so don’t be afraid to play!

Choppy layers are enhanced by the incredibly subtle highlights to give the whole hairstyle dimension, and the soft layers in the bangs soften the face.

56. Layered Choppy Medium Bob
The long bangs are the focus of this hairstyle, but the subtle choppy layers are used to create balance and complement the bangs.

These glossy copper highlights do exactly what they’re meant to do: they draw the eye to the floating layers to give the hairstyle dimension.
63. Chin-Length Textured Bob
If your hair is thick, don’t be afraid that going shorter with your bob might make your hair appear less full. On the contrary, it will look even more lush, but you’ll be rid of all the weight at the bottom.
