We’ve rounded up 50 middle part bob pics guaranteed to inspire you to ask for a bob at your next salon appointment.
1. Shadow-Roots Middle Part Bob
Visible roots make light color hair vastly more manageable, since you won’t require frequent touch-ups. Just make sure to use purple or blue shampoo to get rid of any brassiness.
2. Blunt-Cut Bob
A single strand in a vivid color doesn’t sound like much, but it has completely transformed the look of this bob, making it look chic and fresh.
3. Chin-Length Bob Haircut
If a blunt bob with no layering is too harsh for you, you can soften it with subtle layers at the bottom and thin long bangs that frame the face.
4. Green Medley Short Bob
Bobs need regular trims to stay sharp, so their ends are always fresh. This makes a bob the ideal hairstyle if you like playing with colors—it’s long enough to show your colorist’s work and it’s trimmed frequently enough to stay healthy.
5. Wavy Middle Part Lob
A long bob with soft, natural waves is very flattering on sharp face shapes, like diamond or square, but opt for a shorter bob to avoid elongating your face if it’s long.
6. Flirty Italian Bob
This timeless style will make you feel like a diva. To easily create these gorgeous soft waves, use a large barrel curling iron to wrap two inch strands around it once and let the heat go through, then let cool off before you shake them out.
7. Sleek Middle Part Bob
This sleek middle part bob is as versatile as it’s stylish. It’s a classic hairstyle that’s appropriate for any occasion—it wouldn’t be out of place on the red carpet or at the gym.
8. Middle Part Bob With Long Bangs
Long curtain bangs break up the long line, create movement and frame the face. Paired with the enchanting peach color, this entire hairstyle leaves a soft and gentle vibe.
9. Short Voluminous Middle Part Bob
This short middle part bob works best on longer faces. It has been styled to frame the cheekbones, so it will particularly suit a heart or diamond-shaped faces. Avoid if your face is round—longer bob styles will be much more flattering.
10. Effortless Middle Part Lob
This golden blonde lob looks even more radiant thanks to the slightest bend at the center breaking up the line and softening the blunt ends.
11. Wavy Copper Middle Part Bob
Waves complement a blunt bob because they make it less sharp. For a modern look, make sure to always curl your hair away from the face.
12. Chocolate Bob With Long Bangs
This minimalist style is sophisticated and chic, but it will take some effort to keep looking this sleek. Keeping your hair moisturized will make it less prone to frizz, so you’ll have to use less heat to style it.
13. Choppy Middle Part Bob
A choppy bob is super-flattering and completely on-trend. It looks best if you don’t overstyle it, but let it work with your natural hair texture instead.
14. Long Angled Ombre Bob
The play of color and the angled shape creates a unique look. The barely off-center parting is at the same time an unexpected feature and very flattering for all face shapes.
15. Platinum Bob With Hair Pins
Pins don’t only keep your hair out of your face, they also create a point of interest. This quick hairstyle is also a quick way to create a middle part if you have a cowlick on one side and your hair won’t stay put.
16. Classic Chin-Length Bob
If you like the look of a classic blunt bob but you’re not sure it would suit your face, you can still go ahead and get it if you add bangs that work for you—from a few long face-framing pieces to a full fringe.
17. Blonde Middle Part Bob
Straight, mid-length, middle part bob is a minimalist style that shines when combined with a strong color: natural, but intense shades like this platinum blonde or vivid unnatural tones.

Bangs that consist of a small short piece at the center of the forehead and longer pieces on the side frame the face without being overwhelming. This hairstyle flatters all face shapes and draws attention to the eyes.
21. Bob With Vanilla Highlights

22. Long Straight Bob
When growing out your hair from short to long, a lob is the perfect stop that can replace the awkward transitional phase.
23. Chunky Middle Part Bob
A middle part creates symmetry, and tucking the hair behind one ear creates asymmetry. Combining the two results in an interesting contrast that looks playful and fun.
24. Middle Part Bob For Thin Hair
Thin hair can fall flat if it’s all the same length, so to create body and volume, ask your stylist for texturizing layers. Instead of making the hair seem even thinner, they make it look fuller.
25. Soft Brown Bob With Bangs
Brown hair and a classic bob are a perfect match—they’re both simple and understated, but always pretty and flattering.
