A-line bob haircut is, probably, the most popular cut nowadays, and it’s not going to be out of fashion. More and more often women opt for its stacked version that may also be referred to as an inverted bob. It really flatters most face shapes and hair textures. Besides, with A-line bob haircut you may achieve a fantastic voluminous effect, play with textures and layers, experiment with highlights and ombre finishes. We see stacked haircuts and layered bobs all around every day, but when it comes to deciding on something for ourselves, there may be some sort of puzzlement. How to choose hairstyle that will be something truly classy and will enhance your natural appearance features? Below you will find a very versatile gallery of 70 eye-catching images with long and short A-line bob haircuts, stacked haircuts, inverted bobs and hairstyle ideas for them. You are welcome to look through these photos for inspiration.

Unlimited Opportunities of A-Line Bob Hairstyles

A stacked haircut is, actually, designed to offer you a fuller look and a perfect volume at the back of your head. If your hair is naturally thick, an inverted bob will remove the unwanted heaviness, providing sufficient movement. At the same time, the hair that would benefit from a more dimensional look can also use the same idea of A-line bob haircut with layering at the back and long front locks. The amount of layers is varied, depending on your hair thickness and the desirable effect.

The styling options of A-line bob are also pretty impressive. You may go for sleek, smooth and glossy styles or try on more mischievous tousled looks. A curl of any intensity from very loose large waves to tight bouncy spirals isn’t going to impair the fascination of a stacked bob either. And the last, but not the least is you are free to vary the length of your favorite cut: short stacked bobs or long A-line haircuts look invariably classy and appealing.

Slightly or heavily stacked, wavy or flawlessly straight, blunt or edgy, sleek or texturized, extremely short or long, A-line bob haircut is unmatched in its diversity of styles and creative solutions. The following ideas in pictures have all the chances to inspire you on exciting changes. I hope they will.

A-Line Bob Cuts and Styling Ideas

A-line hairstyles are fun, different and stylish. When you’re searching for a new look without a ton of risk, an a-line is your best bet in 2023.

1. Stacked Bob with Side Bang

Stacking in a hairstyle is actually a pretty literal term; layers are stacked on top of each other to create volume. This usually happens in the back of the style to create maximum fullness that resolves into angled pieces in the front. Light highlights break up the density in the cut.

2. High-Low Bob Haircut

An a-line haircut is shorter in the back and gradually lengthens towards the front. The difference between this and an angled bob is that there typically isn’t any stacking in the style. Because of this, you can experiment with texture like waves.

3. Wispy Brown Bob with Glimpses of Blonde

The cut’s wispy layers are the true piece-y perfection, but the mix of warm and cool tones is what really makes the look extra enviable. Waves showcase the refined dye job best. Create soft curls by wrapping one-inch sections around a straightening iron. Run a dime-sized amount of light-hold pomade through the ends to help the shape stay put.

4. Glossy Blonde Bob with Jagged Ends

The A-line bob was made to last. Balayage coloring — a technique that involves painting color onto the hair — results in a graduated lightening effect and allows for longer stretches between color appointments. And thanks to the jagged ends, you can wait a bit longer between haircuts too.

5. Choppy Angled Bob for Fine Hair

If you’re looking for a hairstyle that’s secretly low-maintenance, a medium length bob is for you. Choppy layers and an angled cut keep the hair from falling flat, and face-framing highlights and lightened ends create the illusion of added depth. It practically does the work for you. Your secret’s safe with us.

6. Angled and Layered Brunette Bob

The stacked A-line bob is as classic as they come. Longer in the front, stacked in the back, the version shown here features layering all around. If your hair is thick and heavy, the shorter top layers are your new best friend. Light, long bangs add further appeal.

7. Wavy Brunette Bob with Surface Layers

The short A-line bob is the best of both worlds: the versatility of a longer cut with the ease of a shorter one. Surface layers only add to the allure of the modern disconnected look. Who says you can’t have it all?

8. Angled Brunette Bob with Purple Highlights

A cut and color combo that are out of this world. Believe it or not, these fun purple highlights are surprisingly versatile. Depending on the environment, they appear to blend back into brunette hair when seen in natural light, or stand out as a bold statement in artificial light and pictures.

9. Asymmetrical Wavy Lob

When it comes to A-lines, asymmetry is A-OK. In fact, it’s downright attractive. If escalating length is the bob’s first act, disconnected layering enhances the drama even more. The front layers of the cut are designed to fall longer on the right side.

10. Textured Blonde Bob for Straight Hair

“Shorter in the back, longer in the front” are the true hallmarks for the haircut, and below-the-chin lengths are where they really start to shine. The front-to-back contrast of the long A-line bob is inherent to the look and eye-catching. After all, there’s nothing wrong with some extra attention, right?

11. Wild and Red A-Line Haircut

This bob features bold steaks of deep red throughout, illuminating the face and accentuating cut layers. Hair should rest just below the chin line, making it a hairstyle that’s easy to handle.

12. Rocker A-Line Hairstyle

Fine hair is not excluded from modern, trendy hairstyles. This long bob with side bangs across the entire forehead along with multi-length layers is designed exclusively for thinner locks.

13. Blunt Glossy Poker Straight Lob

The smooth A-line cut leaves out the layers and levels, letting the exaggerated angle and cool coloration do the heavy lifting. Add a slightly off-center part, poker-straight styling and a healthy, glossy sheen and you’ve got a winning hand.

14. Curly Layers

Use a small or medium barreled iron to pull off these loose, modern ringlets that will show off the beautiful layers that come with your A-line bob. If you can’t maintain the curls on a daily basis, don’t worry – this style looks just as lovely straight or wavy.

15. Chocolate Bob with Layers and Subtle Highlights

The extra-long front pieces present a whole new way to frame the face. A deep side-part and soft waves work to create an ultra-romantic side-sweep that serves the wearer well. The subtle mid-blonde highlights appear more sun-kissed than salon-made.

16. Short Edgy A-Line Bob Haircut

If you’re willing to go rather short, this bob style is adorable. Make sure your stylist uses a blunt cut for the ends and leaves you some long bangs that can be parted to the side. This is a fun, low-maintenance look that takes advantage of the A-line technique for additional body and sass.

17. Classy Stacked Brown Bob

This A-line bob haircut features minimal front layering for a clean look. Layering is reserved for the back of the cut, where the stacked bob and its layers work to add volume to the crown — no teasing required. The single-process color keeps it classy and classic.

18. Straight A-Line Bob Haircut for Shoulder Length Hair

This cut is another one that works well on super straight hair, which of course can be achieved with appropriate hair products and a quality flat iron. Be sure to incorporate some side bangs to

19. Tousled Blonde Bob with Textured Ends

What can we say? We have a soft spot for soft ends. And unless you’re a fan of frequent salon visits, hairstyles with longevity of wear are where it’s at for you too. To that end, there’s nothing like a razor cut. Here the ends are purposefully jagged, giving the appearance of a lived-in haircut from day one.

20. Layered Lob for Thick Hair

Thick, unruly mane? Opt for a longer bob with lots of layers to get a lighter look. More tempered A-line styles are less pronounced than their more architectural counterparts, but, in keeping with its name, the layers shorten toward the back of the cut.

21. Wavy Lob with Jagged Ends

The long A-line haircut proves that statement making hair doesn’t have to be hard-edged. The jagged lob puts the emphasis on the ends which punctuate the gentle waves. The beach-day balayage, where thicker swaths of color are applied seemingly sporadically, add to the effortless air of the style.

22. Textured Inverted Bob with Highlights

Want an A-line without the asymmetry? The inverted bob is worth a closer look. It features a slanted underlayer; from there, graduated, stacked layers are cut into the hair.

23. Edgy Shattered Bob with Highlights

By definition, a shattered bob takes the traditional bob cut and modernizes it, disrupting the clean lines of its original style. In this particular version highlights push the contrast further, with a heavier concentration of color applied toward the front and sprinkled from there.

24. Dark to Light Bob

If your hair is straight, opt for a long bob cut, like the long dark to light a-line bob pictured here. With this cut, your color can start from a deeper shade and smoothly fade out to a natural sun-bleached tone, which adds a flavorful touch to your look.

25. Extra Long Blonde Choppy Bob

The holy grail of understated layers, ladies and gentlemen: an A-line haircut with layers that are so well blended, they are barely perceptible at all. But take a closer look: it’s smartly feathered with the teensiest of long layers scattered throughout.

26. Angled Brunette Bob with V-cut Layers

This style takes the V-cut technique and turns it on its head, cutting the front to culminate in a V shape. Long, blended layers give the hairstyle covetable movement and interest at the ends. Curl the ends under with a round brush when blow drying for a great hair day, every day.

27. Sleek Straight Steeply Angled Bob

Slick, straight and steeply angled: now that’s what we call a triple threat. The confident cut speaks for itself. Keep it smooth with a conditioning mask once a week, and stow an anti-frizz sheet in your bag for touch ups on-the-go.

28. Disconnected Messy Curled Lob

Disconnected layers give a short A-line haircut a messy-on-purpose quality. Here textural waves and blonde highlights look delightfully disheveled. The length is spot-on for a long bob, with the front pieces grazing the collarbone, and the back shortened to the nape of the neck.

29. Side-Parted Sleek Bob

This style, when straightened, adds a bit more drama to your bob and provides a nice, sleek feel of silky hair. If you also want a unique look, go for an exquisite hair color that is neither easy to describe nor copy.

30. Side Shave Cut

To get a funky punk look, you can go with the side shave a-line bob cut. Almost any color will work, but a blonde with a darker undercut is a great solution for such a cool asymmetrical hairstyle.

31. Gray A Line Bob

There are women who want a more striking hairdo – a statement cut, bold styling or unusual hair color. If you fit into this category, you can always go classic with your a line bob cut and try a new mind-blowing hair color. This beautiful shade of gray should let you stand out while you flaunt your tried-and-true straight hairdo.

32. Stacked Ombre Style

Color is the best complement to a-line haircuts, and it really kicks them up a notch. Ombre is perfect for short cuts because you can pack a variety of hues into a small amount of hair. It also will make a heavily textured style look more lightweight.

33. Choppy A Line Bob Cut

Like any woman, you probably like waves and curls but don’t want look too sweet and girly. Loose shaggy waves for a choppy bob cut would be your ideal solution in this case. Throw in some brighter highlights, smile at yourself in the mirror and be ready to conquer the world!

34. Side-Part Long Bob

This is probably the most popular style for fashion-focused females because it’s classy, but it seems effortless at the same time. The messy curly a- line hair is sexy and undone, while a bright blonde streak around the face brightens the girl’s complexion.

35. Exaggerated Angled Bob

The steeper the angle of your cut, the more volume you are able to achieve within the back of your line haircut. Because of the fullness, it’s important to keep curls and waves to a minimum with just a slight bend throughout the ends.

36. Ash Blonde A-line

One of the benefits of a long a-line bob is its versatility; you can pull it into ponytails, curl it to add texture or slick it into an updo. With such a trendy haircut, you deserve an equally trendy hair color to match. Ash tones are very popular, but make it your own with a contrasting strip of color in the front.

37. Side-Parted Collarbone Haircut

Want to try a bold color? Choose a simple cut. This sleek side-parted lob works like a blank canvass for the beautiful color job with a temperature contrast. Warm brown and cool gray are not that easy to blend and pull off, but this is definitely a success!

38. Cropped Blonde Bob

A cut that follows the contours of your jawline looks graphic and chic. If you don’t want it to be too strict, introduce an element of asymmetry into your cut – let one side to be a bit longer.

39. Long Angled Cut

This bob cut is extremely long. It’s ideal for women who want to give structure to their hairstyles and keep hair as long as possible at the same time. Blonde balayage is still a popular hair color choice.

40. Platinum A-line Haircut

If you have a short light-colored cut, it can be difficult to keep it from looking flat without layers and highlights. Thankfully, dark roots are now a major trend within blonde hair. Not only does this cut down on your need for touch-ups as frequently, but it also adds richness to your look.

41. Sleek and Straight A-line

Sleek side-parted styles are very popular for those who want to wear long bobs. But, if you have thin hair it can end up looking flat without layers. An angled cut will give you more volume, while maintaining the overall style you desire.

42. Bob with Blunt Bangs

A stacked bob is recommended for women with fine hair because it gives you mega volume without the need of any added texture. Flirty bangs are meant to show off a classic cat eye and red lips.

43. Highlighted A-line Hair

The best way to get fullness into a shorter cut is with texture and color. Thin highlights will also give dark hair a bit of dimension. And layers with bangs will provide some much needed movement.

44. Fantastic Fuchsia Stacked Bob

Feathered layers are great to achieve weightlessness within stacked bob haircuts. This style combines an eggplant base with bright violet tips for a coloring trick that draws the eye down and establishes length within a shorter cut.

45. Blunt Shoulder-Length Bob

As minimalism gains popularity, people are opting for more low maintenance cuts. Long layered hair is glamorous, but it can also seem a bit dated. A shoulder-length blunt hair cut is fresh and edgy, while remaining approachable and easy to maintain.

46. Ombre A-line with Bangs

The sloping angle of this cut makes it a true a-line bob because it’s longer in the front and short in the back with no layers. Instead of ombre, this hairdo uses a balayage (hand painted) technique to achieve the sunny copper colors mid-shaft to ends.

47. Glossy Brown Bob

The angled bob haircut is great, because it works for all textures and face shapes. You can tailor the style to be the best fit for you. Those with fine straight hair should opt for a shorter cut in the back to create more fullness.

48. Long Platinum A-line Hair Cut

Angled haircuts are perfect for round faces because they offer a structured frame for a soft, curvy chin and chubby cheeks, thus adding sharpness to the overall visage. Side bangs that stop around the cheekbones also sculpt the face further.

49. White Blonde Wavy Bob

With hair so blonde that it almost looks white, it can be hard to get a lot of dimension. One of the best ways to combat a flat look is with brushed curls to achieve not only volume, but visual intrigue and movement. Because everything else is so pale, try adding a pop of color with your lipstick.

50. Bob with Messy Braid Crown

Just because you have short hair doesn’t mean that you can’t wear a trendy style like a braid crown. To make it work, have the plait float in the middle of your loose style and tuck it behind your ear to hide its ends. Highlights will really pop within the braid.

51. A-Line Paired with Color

A sleek and straight a-line cut looks gorgeous when spiced with a vibrant hue. If your hair is dark, a pale blue fade will come out amazing, but any base color and eye-popping dye will work well. Keep your hair straightened for the ultimate showcase of the chosen color.

52. Short and Sassy Hairstyle

This A-line layered bob hairstyle is short, sweet and sassy. Add in a few curls for an added textured touch or just let it hang freely. This style will work best on thinner, straighter hair, but curly-headed girls can make it look great too.

53. A-line for Professionals

Want a hairstyle that will work for both the office and the dance floor? Check out this long bob that features severely straight tresses. It goes well with professional clothing. You just may find that people now take you more seriously in the office!

54. A-Line Haircut with Ombre

Ombre hair is always lovely, but with this style, it’s presented in the best possible light! Using a deep purple pigment against dark hair, this dye technique really brings out the layers and the silhouette of the cut.

55. A-Line Bob Hairstyle with a Deep Side Part

Creating a dramatically deep side part will make an A-line cut edgier and more creative. This hairstyle also features a blunt cut to the ends, again bringing with it more attitude than femininity.

56. Straight and Shaggy

This messy hairstyle features long, subtle layers on fine straight hair. A tousled look is very popular right now, and outside of looking trendy, you’ll feel beautiful with this hairstyle, too. Choose ombre hair coloring to finish off the look.

57. Short and Sleek Brown Blonde Bob

Business in the front, party in the back! This style is more serious and sophisticated than other bob cuts, so if you are a girl who doesn’t like to mess around, consider this at your next salon visit. Some chunky blonde highlights, worked into the bangs, will brighten up the style even more.

58. Wavy A-line Bob Hairstyle

If you were born with beautiful beach waves, you’re one step ahead of most of us! Regardless, you can easily get this look on the base of a long bob cut. Just get a large-barrel curling iron ready. Add in some fun front highlights to brighten up the face.

59. Blunt and Straight Center-Parted Cut

A blunt A-line can look professional and lovely at the same time. Part your hair in the center and straighten the locks to the ends for the ultimate look. This will look best at the shoulder length, but you can always try it shorter or longer if you want something a little different.

60. Curly Style with Ombre Coloring

Use a curling iron to add some flair to shoulder-length hair. Ombre coloring adds dimension and body to otherwise thin hair, and also introduces a bit more of an edge to this fun haircut.

61. Straight Lob with Fringy Ends

Jennifer Aniston’s lob is flat-ironed with some lift at the roots to demonstrate her gorgeous layering and fringy tips. Her hairstyle is composed from hundreds of thin pieces that provide super cute framing for her lovely face.

64. Curly A Line Bob

One of the nice things about the a line bob is how often you can change your hairstyles and look different. You’re never limited to straight hair or a solid hair color, as you can see in the picture. Why not apply your curling iron, or change your color? Depending on your appearance and desires, there’s a lot you can do.

There are women who want to convey some softness to the angled bob cut. To achieve that, add a curl inward for the face-framing pieces. Stick with soft balayage highlights for a cute, flirty feel that is sure to attract plenty of attention.

Christina Hendricks’ shaggy A-line bob is the envy of all redheads. Its delicate color features just the right degree of saturation to appear sophisticated and harmonize with Christina’s grey eyes. But what I like the most is its wispy wavy texture and ideal volume.

Some women like a line haircuts but hesitate about going short.
