    This fringed haircut is so easy to style because smooth sleek lines are not needed for this look. Choppy and choppy layered haircuts work especially well for short to medium-length hair as these layers frame the face perfectly.

    Different elements of the hairstyle can be changed to personalize your look. A choppy bob looks great with a short micro-fringe or a slightly longer fringe that sits just above the eyes. You can also experiment with the colour. A bold red shade will be eye-catching and a more reserved chocolate brown shade will complement this textured look perfectly. Check out all the shades you could experiment with.

    And to deserve the title ‘trendiest 2015 hairstyle’ the choppy bob must also be fashionable and still be fit for everyday wear, so can be worn by women of any age!
