The main appeal of an undercut is that it instantly makes your look edgy, but what if you want something a bit more subtle? The hidden undercut bob lets you pick when to show and when to hide your wild side; when to make a statement or switch things up.
Here are some amazing undercuts to take to your hairstylist.
1. Lined Hidden Undercut Bob
A hidden undercut is like a secret: you can keep it to yourself or choose to reveal it. This sleek jaw-length bob is a timeless, elegant haircut, but the shaved sides decorated with lines underneath turn it into something unconventional and interesting.
2. Pattern Design Hidden Undercut Bob
The draw of the undercut combined with some length is that it’s a part of a bigger story. On its own, shaved head and an edgy pattern would be a little too daring for most people, but as a hidden undercut, this geometric design becomes much more accessible—and too cool to resist.
3. Curly Bob With Undercut
“Edgy” is the first thing that comes to mind when describing an undercut, but how about “cute”? This adorable long curly bob becomes a little cheeky—and somehow even more charming—with a small undercut on the side of the head.
4. Bob Undercut For Thin Hair
Should you pass on the undercut if you have thin hair? It depends on what you want to achieve. If your hair goals is a full-looking mane with lots of volume, then you should probably hold back. But if you want to make a statement that comes with having an undercut hairstyle, then go for it.
5. Bob With Undercut Nape
Shaving a bit of hair in the back and creating a hidden undercut is an easy way to spice up a hairstyle without going too far—if you decide you don’t like it, just wear your hair down until it grows out a bit.
6. Long Bob With Undercut
An undercut is a way to make your hairstyle unique, but it can also be used to take off some weight from thick hair without layering. Lightweight and fresh!
7. Undercut Asymmetrical Bob
Take your style a step further by getting an undercut with a design that seems interesting and create a wholly personalized look. The best part? Every times it grows out you can get something else.
8. Butterfly Hidden Undercut Bob
Choosing the cut, the color and deciding how to style your hair are all parts of your self-expression. An hidden undercut creates even more opportunity to explore what you like and how you show your personal style—and you can keep it private if you want to.
9. Edgy Undercut Bob
To help your colorful undercut hairstyle look good longer, leave the shaved sides and back natural. Your roots and the undercut will match as your hair grows out, so your style is going to look intentional. This striking hairstyle is all vibrant red flames that really pop thanks to the brown short sides and roots.
10. Hidden Undercut Curly Bob
A deep side part reveals the hidden undercut, giving this curly bob an intense vibe—move the parting to the center to hide the shaved sides and instantly get a romantic look with defined bouncy curls.
11. Bob Undercut With Bangs
It doesn’t get more classic than the chin-length bob with bangs, which makes the hidden undercut completely unexpected.
12. Asymmetrical Bob With Hidden Undercut
The shaved parts are usually the edgy part of an undercut hairstyle, but not in the case of this asymmetrical bob. The color medley and the graduated layers are both loud and already create lots of impact, so the undercut serves to takes things down a notch.
13. Wavy Bob With Back Shave
This gorgeous design is made to be seen, but sometimes you don’t want to attract too much attention—a hidden undercut is a way to draw the curtains when you don’t want to show off and would rather keep a low profile.
14. Medium Length Hidden Undercut Bob
The soft pink color and the understated one-length bob combined with the shaved sides are all about contrast, which is one of the easiest ways to create a unique style.
15. Curly Long Bob With Shaved Undercut Hidden

16. Double Side Shave Undercut
A hidden undercut bob is the ultimate experimental haircut—trying out something new with the option to conceal it opens up possibilities you might not dare to try otherwise, like shaving the sides of this long layered bob.
17. Small Undercut Bob
You can wear an undercut under a colorful, choppy style that’s already edgy, or go for the most professional looking haircut, while hiding a little bit of daring underneath.
18. Hidden Fine Hair Undercut Bob
This platinum one-length bob is simple and low key—but it doesn’t have to be. A style like this can be worn loose if you want to seem minimalist, but tuck it behind the ear and show of the undercut to make a statement.
19. Wavy Bob With Hidden Undercut
Loose waves and a lob, where have you seen in it before? Everywhere! If you want to stand out, try a tiny undercut—it will make your style look completely different.
20. Inverted Bob Undercut
If you prefer a shorter bob style, hiding an undercut might not be as easy because there isn’t much hair to cover it up, but it’s not impossible. Camouflage your undercut by blending the color of the shaved parts to your tresses, so even if it peeks out, it won’t be too obvious.
