Face shape

This year, the layered look is one of the key haircuts and that’s good news for everyone as it gives styles that controls coarse hair and makes it easier to get some volume into thin or fine hair.

Shags and choppy layers

And not only that, the big trend is for shag cuts, choppy layers, asymmetry, ragged tips, waves and curls, there’s a wide range of contemporary-casual cuts for all hair types.

Fine hair

On fine hair, the short layered bob hairstyle makes the hair tend to ‘puff-out’ more and you’ll find that a few twisty waves or curls will add volume to make your hair appear thicker.

Balayage highlights

Highlights have now moved away from uniform ‘stripes’ and are being used to add even more depth and dimension to fine hair.

For example, some lighter balayage highlights around the face and sides create the impression of more hair and can be placed to accentuate your best facial feature, too.

Try a short layered bob, with a few highlights in the same colour as your eyes, to bring out their colour in a very flattering way!

Thick hair

On thick or coarse hair, a short layered bob hairstyle can do some effective thinning to produce a beautifully shaped silhouette that will fall into shape very easily after washing.

Hair colour

Short layered bob hairstyles are the perfect makeover style for anyone needing a style update, as it’s easier to maintain an all-over change of hair colour. This means you can easily apply a trendy new shade at home to brighten up your face with a vivid shade or cover up those grey strands that are such a nuisance!

    I really like the highlights in the “Short Hair Bob Haircut for Black Women” in http://pophaircuts.com/best-new-short-layered-bob-hairstyles/2 (woman in the pic is Caucasian though).

    Do you have a pic of the other side of her hair and could post or send it to me?

    I am getting my hair highlighted in the next week or so, so thanks in advance for your prompt response! (I’ve already had my hair cut like this style.) 🙂
