• Regardless of whether someone has curly hair or smooth, silky hair, a long layered bob can look extremely good. This is especially true for women who have a round face. Opt for a layered haircut that has rough, angular edges which helps in giving an illusion of a longer face. We are talking about a style that is similar to the first image given with article.

• If you want to sport a slightly edgy, punk look, then opt to set your bangs to the side as portrayed in the second image. With layered bobs, you do not have to worry about styling your hair. Instead opt to let them fall naturally for a fresh look. A shaggy look also suits younger girls who do not have to worry about professional decorum.

• You can opt for a slightly stronger look by opting to highlight your hair in bright colors like pink and blue as illustrated in the third image. This is a look that is more easily carried off by a person who is in their teens or early twenties. Working women may not have the freedom to consider these highlights as they may not be appropriate for their workplace.

• If you are looking for a less edgy haircut, then opt for a soft layered bob hairstyle which suits almost any face structure and gives your face a slightly more gentle look. A graduated bob or a feathered bob, as illustrated with the fourth image, can be a great option. A graduated bob which is one of the most popular amongst layered bob haircuts is a good choice for women of all ages, as it allows for a more stylish look while remaining in their comfort zone where hairstyling is concerned. While the cut is more modern, the style is classic in its appearance. If you are opting for a feathered haircut, then it will look best if you have an oval, oblong, or a diamond shaped face.

• A layered bob haircut which has an inverted style is one of the most fashionable and in-vogue hairstyles as of now. Of course, for such a haircut it is important that you have straight hair that makes the layers more visible and easy to discern.

• For a more modern look opt for a choppy layered bob; a haircut that resembles a shaggy haircut. This is a funky look to opt for. With this layered haircut, you can completely change your look by just tweaking the hairstyle a bit. If you have straight hair, then opt to curl your hair slightly for a dramatic change. Loose curls can create a slightly delicate look with this edgy haircut. Also curls help you play around with the length of the hair.

• If you have round face, opt to avoid tight curls as that can make your look rounder, and create a fullness that you would want to avoid. Just apply either a serum or hair wax to the tips of the hair, and run your fingers through your hair to style it. Long layered bobs for older women can also be an extremely stylish option.

Opting for layered hairstyles, especially the layered bob haircuts that are so popular can be a welcome change from the boring, monotonous hairstyles that everyone seems to wear. Not only is a layered bob a great style that suits almost everyone but it is stylish, modern, and easy to maintain. Opt to get a layered bob and be ready to welcome the admiring glances that you are sure to get as you walk past.
