Cute Wavy Bob Haircuts and Hairstyles to Try This Season

While having a curly style with straight bangs used to be seen as a faux pas, it can work with shorter styles because it helps to blend different layers. Straight pieces in the front will frame the face and work especially well to slim chubby cheeks.

2. Neck-Length Razored Wavy Bob

Try the modern wavy bob with midshaft bents. The light brown hair has ash blonde highlights throughout, and the center part helps to frame the face beautifully. It’s a feminine haircut, but the choppy ends give it a sporty vibe.

There’s something about the soft waves in a short choppy bob that gives it a charming girlish feel. The ashy brown angled cut is fresh and easy, with a sense of fullness and volume. It’s an excellent choice for the woman whose hair tends to be thin or a little flat at times.

The best of both worlds; short, textured locks drop into increasingly longer bright blonde waves that hit the collarbone. An angled choppy bob is just right for the lady who enjoys the public eye, and even though the ends are jagged and uneven, it’s not a cookie cutter hairstyle by a long shot.

23. Ash Blonde Wavy Lob for Fine Hair

If your hair tends to lay flat, spruce it up with a piece-y, textured lob for fine hair. Part it the way you like and finger comb to reveal the natural waves or style quick bents with a straightener. A lob is an ideal medium haircut when you are trying to grow out a short style into long hair.

24. Long Wavy Copper Blonde Bob

A wavy lob lets your medium length waves cascade on the top of your shoulders. The bright copper blonde balayage appears naturally sun-kissed, giving your hair a shiny and healthy glow. The curly tendrils are slightly lighter in the front to refresh the complexion.

Full and sassy, this face-framing, short wavy bob is a fantastic option for women with thick, curly hair. The squared silhouette in the chin length gives the cheeks a slimmer, more youthful appearance.

For women with thick, voluminous strands a chin-length wavy bob goes a long way. Have your stylist texture the ends lightly to lend an airy feel to the haircut. Long overgrown bangs help shape the hairdo and add volume where it’s needed.

29. Short Choppy Bob with Dimensional Waves

Whether you work in a corporate environment or an art gallery, you’ll be the center of attention when you take a chance with a chocolate and golden blonde choppy bob. The stacked dimensional waves barely have a bent, and the rounded shape is shattered which offers it a super-stylish edge.

30. Long Disconnected Wavy Bob

Wintry blonde waves with thin golden highlights are what give this cute disconnected bob such an irresistible beachy feel. The extra-long length means it’s convenient to occasionally put it into an updo, but we’d suggest that you never choose to hide the slightly textured waves and jagged ends in an ordinary ponytail. What a waste!

31. Wavy Bob with Bangs

This version of a classic bob cut is slightly longer, making it flattering for round or heart-shaped faces. If you want to go even further in framing your face, go for bangs. Try full bangs for a thorough opaque effect, or give Korean bangs a shot. They are lighter, breezier bangs that end somewhere between your lashes and eyebrows.

32. Bouncy Tousled Curls

Cute and feminine, tighter curls give this chin-length bob more movement and volume. It’s an excellent way to make your hair look fuller and livelier. Apply a thermal protection spray onto your damp hair before styling to maintain its healthy appearance.

33. Bob with Large Dimensional Curls

Soda-can-sized curls provide a distinctively retro-style that reminds us of the Hollywood starlets from the 1940s. Of course, back then, they didn’t have the variety of colors the balayage offers today. The chocolate-brown base highlighted with strawberry blonde hues will make you feel like you’re on the red carpet (even when you’re just at the supermarket)!

34. Choppy Wavy Angled Bob for Fine Hair

If you have difficulties livening up your flat and fine hair, we might just have the right hairstyle for you. Flip your head upside-down, scrunch the hair with some light hold styling mousse and it will stay weightless and voluminous all-day long. The classic bronde tones in a medium wavy bob give a sense of volume and lift that also helps to combat the flatness.

35. Wavy Layered Bob with Flicks

Medium length, rounded silhouette and layers are another great idea of a flattering bob for thick hair. If your hair is slightly curly from nature, you’ll get those lovely flicks without any styling. If not, use a large-barrel curling iron to shape the ends.

36. Cute Coffee-Colored Bob

Dark hair is sexy for many reasons — it looks healthier and reflects shine better. These are just a few of those reasons. But, the downside of having dark hair with a wavy bob is that it can look a little too dense. The best way to make it more lightweight is with highlights in a lighter color that will add dimension and break up the cut.

37. Sexy Black Bob

Not everyone’s hair texture is naturally wavy, but that does not mean that sexy tousled waves can’t be achieved with a curling iron. The key is to quickly wrap hair in alternating directions starting from the middle of each strand to keep them from turning into spiral curls.

The wavy bob is the must-have style of the year. The textured cut is perfect for volume and softening sharp facial features. The angle in the front creates fullness, and the deep side part pulls double duty by also slimming round cheeks.

43. Pastel Colored Bob

Because the long wavy bob is so popular, sometimes you need to do a little something extra to make it pop — and color is just the trick that you need. Known as red violet, this unique mix of maroon, mauve and rose gold is sure to turn more than a few heads.

Wondering how else can you rock your messy bob? A simple half up side braid can add an interesting accent to your casual style. It’s a fun asymmetric twist that will take just another 2 minutes of your styling routine.

45. Shimmery Highlights in Wavy Bob

Want a hairstyle that breathes with ease and nonchalance? Here’s a good example. The wavy angled layers provide a good balance of weight and volume. The loose, soft curls are wonderful in texture, and the lovely golden balayage brings them straight to absolute perfection.

46. Short Wavy Bob with Side Bangs

Here is a way to boost thickness of your fine hair strands. Go for the shortest stacked bob version with feathered streaks, get some subtle highlights and style light messy waves.

47. Shaggy Wavy Bob

If you have thick strands, a blunt cut can feel heavy in a medium length hairstyle. Because of this it’s best to incorporate a few light razored layers around the ends to give the cut a bit of airiness and movement. Achieve the piece-y separation that is popular with a bit of styling wax or sea salt spray.

48. Medium Bob with Wavy Texture

This bob is angled very subtly, so it features practically the same length at the back and front. We love the textured disconnected ends and very light waves, actually just a slight bent, a hint on the wave.

49. Copper Wavy Lob with Highlights

With lavish copper tones on the textured top layers, this wavy lob projects elegance and style. Lightly layered tresses encourage the waves while the jagged ends add a modern edgy touch. The unmistakable choice for everyday wear and special occasions alike.

If low-key best describes your style, this is the look for you. The messier it gets the better it looks, so don’t be afraid to embrace your bed head waves. Plus, ombre is the perfect color technique because it allows you to embrace color without the need of frequent touch-ups.
