Going short is going to refresh your look, especially if you’ve been wearing your hair long for a while. A short bob is easy and versatile, and becomes even more exciting when combined with bangs.
There are lots of different ways to wear a short bob with bangs, so let’s dive in and take a look at the many options you can choose from.
1. Short Bob With Bangs
You don’t have to have a certain face shape to rock the classic straight bob + straight bangs cut; with tiny tweaks, it can work on anyone. Here, softly rounded bangs and the texturizing layers used to take off the bulk at the bottom flatter the face while maintaining the style.
2. Short Curly Bob With Bangs
A short bob with bangs and curly hair are a perfect match. It’s an adorable look that’s also low-maintenance: keeping your curls shorter means easier styling.
3. Short French Bob With Bangs
The original short bob with bangs—the French bob—is usually cut around lip length, but if you have a square or heart-shaped face, keeping it a little bit longer creates a more balanced look. A chin-length bob is still short, but it flatters your face shape more.
4. Wavy Short Bob With Bangs
A super-short bob is fresh and dramatic, and it never fails to leave an impression. It’s not a low-maintenance style, however: keeping the crisp length requires regular salon visits.
