Bob Haircut Styles for Ladies

What is a Bob Cut?

A bob hair cut (aka: ‘a bob’) is a hair style for short and medium-length hair that is cut straight around the head at jaw-level. The style can be modified as far as length and shape but is for the most part a cut with clear and defined lines. The bob cut varies based on the type of bob desired. Many stylists rave that bob haircut styles help to make mature women look younger, and younger women look more sophisticated.

Below is a list of the different types of bob cuts to help you choose. If you’re not sure, our talented team of Miami hair stylists and colorists at Open Hair Miami Salon will help you to decide based on your unique features.
