Top Five Bob Haircuts

Bob hairstyles are not on practical but they look great. Unbeknownst to many people is the wide variety of bob cuts available. Following is a list of the top five bob cuts:

Asymmetrical Bob

The asymmetrical bob is essentially a where one side of the bob is longer than the other side as it cascades over the shoulder on one particular side. It is layered around the neck to produce a gradual lengthening on one side.

A Line Bob

This is a bob cut that is perfectly square. The fringe is cut straight across and the length of the bob (whilst longer) is also cut completely square the whole way around the head. Think Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction when you are trying to visualise it.

Concave Bob

This is a bob cut that is cut close to the back of the neck. It is layered up the back of the head and over the back of the neck leaving a long fringe. A prime example of this type of cut is how Victoria Beckham wears her hair.

Shoulder Length Bob

A slightly longer bob style that is not relevant to any specific cut. Virtually any bob can go with this style. It is just a matter of keeping enough length in the hair so it is around shoulder length.

Shaggy Bob

With little regard to any specific style of cut – the shaggy bob is best suited to those of us who have naturally wavy or curly hair. Generally speaking, the cut itself is a cross between a concave bob and a line bob. This is the ultimate low maintenance cut for those of you lucky people that can pull it off.

Crimped Bob

This type of bob is for those of us who really wish they had the hair to support a shaggy bob. If you don’t have naturally curly or wavy hair then you can crimp it to get a similar effect. However, it will require maintenance. Eventually when the crimp grows or wears out then you may be able to still pull off a concave or line bob.

Almost anyone can wear a bob cut and look great. Although to actually wear certain bobs you need a certain hair style in order to pull it off. Some bobs are best suited to long hair whilst others are better for curly or wavy hair. If you are unsure, you can just mix and match. Try some different bob styles out and see what sort of reaction you get.
