The basic bob haircut came to us from the innovative Flapper short bob, started by trendy young women in the 1920’s. They cast off their corsets and ‘bobbed’ their long hair, to show their independence from tradition and create a new, modern identity for women. So it has a great pedigree!
The freedom you gain from a bob is great and these days the bob haircut is still one of the most popular hairstyles in short, medium and long length hair. And no matter what your personal fashion style is, you can emphasise it by wearing a matching bob haircut!
Short bob haircuts
The basic short bob can be cut in lengths that finish at ear-lobe level, for a sparky, cute look or at chin-level, which is a length that suits almost every face shape and age range!

Moreover, you can use a bob cut with a deep fringe to balance a long face or a swept-back no-fringe bob to open up a small face or a low forehead. Blunt cut full bangs give a strong, dramatic appearance which will put lots of focus on your eyes.
