The bob hairstyle is appealing and versatile as it adapts to all face shapes and hairstyles. Bobs may be long or short, symmetric, asymmetric, sassy or elegant. You may wear the bob with or without a fringe, straight or curly. In our photo gallery we show you some of the best bob hairstyles from straight to curly.

  • A Bob for Every Type of Face

    If you have an angular face shape, we would recommend a bob that is cut to chin level.

    A short bob suits people with an oval face shape. With this hairstyle, the hair reaches only slightly below ear level, which balances the appearance of a long face.

    For people who have a round face shape we would advise you opt for a longer bob. The bob will make your face appear longer, flattering your face shape.
