1. Deep-textured platinum and ash-blonde bob – short haircut styles for ladies
This classic short bob haircut has a trendy V-shaped back that softens the nape. And the roots are a gentle gray shade that also creates a softer contrast with the cool ash-blonde top layers. This type of light and dark contrast always adds density to fine or medium hair types.
And to make it totally up-to-the-minute, this high-fashion short bob has lots of defined strands arranged around the head. This creates fabulously deep texture, which is the latest way to add volume and interest to straight hair!
2. Rich auburn angled bob short haircut styles for ladies with thick hair
This gorgeous shape and rich color create an outstanding short haircut with an impressive profile! It’s a fabulous hairstyle idea for anyone with thick hair, as it always look cutting-edge, even though it’s a 1960’s classic cut.
However, this version has several new features to show it’s completely contemporary. For example, the curved-in back and clean line around the nape. And defined, balayaged strands pointing towards the back. This creates texture and movement on an easy-care, fashionable haircut for medium to thick hair.
3. Chic fantasy colors on ash-blonde short bob – short haircut styles for ladies
Here’s another curvy, angled bob that looks great on thick hair that has natural volume. And if your natural hair isn’t terribly thick, the lightening chemicals used will help by thickening your individual hair-shafts! It’s a fabulous fantasy hair color design, that’s chic and not at all hippy-dippy.
So you can wear it for dance-clubbing and at work the next day. The hair has been cut into sliced layers which allow the stylist to scult beautifully curved long layers. And purple, pink and green balayage emphasize the chunky texture perfectly!
4. Simple silver-ash-blonde basin-cut for fine hair – short haircut styles for ladies
Fine hair always looks great in a short pixie cut and the long layers in this style show off the attractive, silky texture of the model’s hair. The dainty vibe is enhanced by an edgy, buzzed nape that gives the boy-cut look and shows off the neckline.
Long layers are swept over the top from a blurred side-part adding attractive thickness and movement. And the hair has several shades of balayage, including golden-beige and lavender, to add contrast and light-reflecting texture. Straight-across long bangs highlight the eyes in this easy-care, modern style!
5. Sexy tousled ash-blonde bob with blunt-cut ends for fine hair
If you have fine hair, it doesn’t always look its best in long styles as it may look thin and straggly. But you can still have length and untidy texture with a bob that ends just an inch or two below your chin. This sexy, bedhead look in ash-blonde is cut in long layers, with a few shorter lengths softening the line.
The shorter lengths have wispy, tapered tips, but to keep the thickness most of the ends are blunt-cut, creating a chunky vibe. Several similar shades of ash-blonde and beige balayage add texture and 3-D depth to a seductive, blonde bombshell look!
6. Elegant mink-brown straight bob with subtle blonde balayage
This neutral light-brown shade is unusual and very attractive. The darker roots transition gradually to a mid-blonde neutral brown and golden blonde ombré. And this decorates a simple style perfectly. The hair is cut in long layers, with concave shaping at the ends and trendy textured tips.
The off-centre part can be adjusted by your stylist to suit your particular face shape. And this length is also a good one for fine or medium hair, as it keeps the natural thickness intact. It’s an easy-care haircut with lots of fashion appeal!
7. Stunning copper-orange curly short bob
Curls are coming back! And that’s great news for everyone with naturally curly hair, like this model. I love curly bobs like this, as they are so easy to style and have loads of flattering volume. The copper-brown roots are balayaged with lighter orange color at the ends.
So this style is just packed with texture and color-depth! The V-shaped nape is super-trendy and this orange-copper shade is a high-fashion favorite right now. And if that wasn’t enough, cute curls around the face soften and flatter your features!
8. Choppy short angled bob in neutral blonde shades for fine hair
One of the most contemporary twists you can get on the classic angled bob is this choppy look. The long layers keep all the thickness of fine hair. And blunt-cut ends, with raggedy texture, make the tips appear thick and chunky.
The medium-blonde/light-brown roots have a lovely, warm golden look, which softens the contrasting oat-blonde balayage. Loose, defined waves on contrasting colors always make hair appear thicker. And you get a fabulously trendy profile with any angled bob!
9. Light chestnut & pale-blonde half-n-half bob with bangs
If it’s coming up to summer, not winter in your location, here’s a super summer style. It’s a new twist on the quirky half-and-half hair color design. But instead of using dramatic black and white, this colorist has created a trendy, light chestnut and blonde look.
This style works well on fine to medium hair types, with long layers that retain the natural thickness of your hair. But there’s some clever shaping near the ends to make a natural curve in to frame the jawline and chin. A long, straight-across fringe and shorter layers around the face give this exciting new style a casual, summery vibe!
10. Fabulous long blonde to short makeover
Long hair can be very impressive, but it can also keep you out of the trend-setting group and leave you looking old-fashioned. So this fantastic makeover is a great example of how you can knock years off your age with a fashionable short style!
As we age, we all tend to put on weight around the chin and longer hair accentuates this. And it also drags the eye down, emphasizing any downward lines on the face. But this lovely short, straight bob lifts up the focus to the top of the face, and adds a sexy peek-a-boo vibe from face-framing, long layers!
11. Glorious copper layers with casual separated bangs – short haircut style for ladies
Ah, would you look at those green eyes and rich copper hair! Mid copper is really gaining lots of fans these days and is one of the season’s favorite ‘trendy’colors. The layered short haircut is full of lively movement and interesting texture. And you can see it’s going to be very easy to style and maintain!

LOL Well, as you can see above, if you’re wearing a hairstyle that doesn’t flatter you a stylist can do wonders for your beauty look! A cute pixie cut in a trendy, flattering and fun color covers this model’s forehead lines. And the long fringe frames her pretty, blue eyes and accentuates her cheekbones! Instant magic!
13. Feminine undercut on hi-volume chic shapely pixie – short haircut style for ladies
This is a very stylish short haircut suitable for someone who loves to look trendy and slightly edgy. Unlike most undercuts, or buzzed sides, the shape of this one is quite cute and feminine. And that’s because the stylist has shaped the short sections neatly down to cute side-points. The high level of asymmetry creates lots of movement and texture on a smart look perfect for anyone with thick, brunette hair!
14. Artistic flair on blonde wavy angled bob – short haircut style for ladies
Here’s another great contemporary look for thick, brown hair. The back is slightly stacked to emphasise the wonderful shape and volume around the crown. And you get a fabulous elongated silhouette from the profile view. The bright beige and neutral blonde balayage is generously applied to create a blonde look. With high volume, big loose curls and waves creating movement and 3-D texture!
15. Superb simple straight bob cut with fine vertical highlights & blonde ombré
This simple bob haircut is a classic that’s constantly being update with new colors and techniques. It’s only slightly sloped down from the back and is a style you can achieve on fine and medium hair. With plain styles, the colorists are able to create some beautiful color designs, like this lovely dark and light beige-blonde blend. It’s a classy look that’s easy to maintain and always looks neat and stylish!
16. Makeover from long to short for fabulous image change
Two images of a lovely young woman, but one has much more sex-appeal! And the main reason for that is her new short haircut. This pixie is a classic, with an arched short fringe changing a squarish forehead into a cute oval shape. And this complements the model’s finely shaped chin to make her face look beautifully oval. Her eyes, lips and neck are now on show and she definitely looks more attractive and lively!
