There are different types of bobs, the most popular ones are the angel bob, the graduated bob, and the layered bob. With a little change to your regular bob, you can add style and variation with a simple curling iron and blow dryer. Alternatively, you can get a layered bob from a salon.
There are different length and styles that you can give your base hair, and then cut the rest of the hair for a layered effect. You can either get a graduated bob base, or a uniform length bob as a base, which has a straight cut or a U-cut. You can also have it different lengths, it could be just below your ears, chin, or even neck.
After you get the base shape of your hairstyle, start cutting your hair in different length on the sides, front, and back. This will give your hair a layered look. In case you want a short bob, cut bangs in the front with fewer layers and sweep the hair to the side.
If you have not colored your hair and have retained your natural hair color, then you can consider adding highlights to your hair, which suit your eye color and complexion. You can also get your hair cut with a razor to give your hair an edgy and chic look.
Flip your hair outwards to add to the effect. You can straighten the ends of your hair with a flat iron in different directions for a choppy look. Remember to condition your hair appropriately to ensure that your hair is moisturized. Use heat protecting serums while using heat styling tools.
