It is hard to find a woman or girl who has never tried a layered bob hairstyle at some point. The bob comes in various sizes and finishes, so there is something for every woman regardless of their face shape or hair type. Of the many designs and finishes, the layered bob is one of the most popular. It allows ladies to have more control over the volume they want to keep. Layering also offers many styling options, and it is one of the most effortless styles to maintain. However, the best thing is that there are many styles to choose from, and they vary in length, texture, and colours, so you will always find something that works well for you. Below are 15 popular versions of this fantastic style.
# 1 Extra Light and Straight
The layered A-lines in this haircut are just splendid, and they give the hair a perfect volume. One of the things that make the locks look even more breathtaking is the light blonde shade used and the trimming of the strands to an almost asymmetrical pattern. The face-framing style also helps to spice up the look.
# 2 Short Black Layers
Black makes a perfect hair colour, and the best thing is that you do not even have to do much to create a fancy look with such a dark hue. For this style, the strands are cut into a very short bob and arranged in layers with a simple design on the back to finish the look. A shallow centre part and the face-framing design also help to enhance the look.
# 3 Graduated Layers
The graduated bob is perfect for ladies with round, square and oval face shapes. And what makes it look this fantastic is its trims that create some beautiful layers. The layers are so perfect that they look effortless, and if you add in some highlights like in this style, you can be sure of an impressive look.
# 4 Inverted Bob
Although this is a typical inverted bob with a short back and long bangs in the front, it does not appear like any regular style due to the texture of the strands and the layers. There are very few strands in style, but layering makes it look voluminous. The ash grey shade also adds to the beauty of the hairdo.
# 5 Modern Textured Waves
With neatly cut hair, you will not need to do any fancy styling to look good. The only thing to design the locks is to create a shallow centre part and push the strands to the sides. However, the texture from the cuts and arranging the strands make this an eye-catching look.
# 6 Balayage Undercut
The colour used in this style is fantastic since the different shades of brown blend in perfectly, but the fact that they are hand-painted makes them look this charming. Apart from this, the hair also has some significant undercuts that also help to enhance the appearance of the nicely coloured and layered locks.
# 7 Blue Pixie Cut
Some haircuts are simply amazing as they get everything from the colour to the cuts right. The blue hue in this style is fantastic. It enhances a fabulous pixie cut that has some undercuts for a nice disconnected finish.
# 8 Clipper Cut Bangs
A clipper can also help you get a fantastic look, and you only need to come up with a unique design like this one. In this style, you should use the clippers to trim the front part of the short bob to create the amazing face-framing and layered bangs that are the focal point in this haircut.
# 9 Color Melt Layers
The purple shades used in this style blend in perfectly to create a tone that you will not want to get rid of. Although the strands in the hairdo are short, what makes them remarkable is how they have precise cuts for an added texture and the volume created by the thick layers.
# 10 Weave Bob with Golden Highlights
Even if you do not have perfect strands, you can still wear this style with a weave. A weave bob will save you a lot of time and effort in trying to get the cuts right, and it makes it possible to get a style you would not have with your natural looks. The golden highlights also help to spice up the weave design.
# 11 Soft Waves
Even with the layered bob, keeping things simple can make you look polished and refined. The textured waves in this style do not need any fancy or sophisticated styling to look great; a centre part and side sweep is more than sufficient to give you a perfectly layered design.
# 12 The Classic Layers
Classic styles always make a beautiful hairdo. The design starts with a decent short bob haircut then some highlights are introduced to the style. Here the shades have the classic from dark to light look, and different shades of brown and caramel are used to create a perfect colour melt.
# 13 Cute Blonde Bob
Some ladies have some fabulous locks that can form distinct layers effortlessly without too much styling and minimal cuts. In this style, for example, very few trims are needed to create the look, and for the styling, you only need to create a centre part from where you can push the locks back and to the sides.
# 14 Edgy and Angled Bangs
This style should start with a dye job to get a deep shade of red if you do not already have it. After this, the locks are then trimmed to create some nice bangs, and then you should also have some undercuts. The back should be shaved short and then given some razor patterns. For styling, the bangs should be pushed to the sides.
# 15 Fantastic Coppery Blonde
The layers in this long bob are fantastic as they have a perfect texture but what will draw your attention to this style are the colours used. Copper works well with almost any hue, but this style proves that it looks unique with some hints of blonde.
