Easy to maintain and still able to do a wide variety of styles, bobs are undoubtedly a hit among women of all ages. We’ve come up with an extensive list of must-know adorable bob haircuts and glamorous styles to choose from.

This look is casual yet sleek, starting with a basic shoulder length haircut that leaves plenty of length around the face. Dazzling light brown highlights brighten her overall style and add a touch of dimension to her locks, while keeping them slick straight keeps things slick and polished.

Her bayalage hair coloring is simply flawless, with a stunning collection of blonde highlights and lowlights that are sure to dazzle in the sunlight. Her hair is cut just above the shoulders, instantly creating some flirty bounce, while tons of volume is added throughout the mane. We’re especially loving the distinct rise around the face, which really opens up her face and brightens her look.

If the thought of chopping your locks in the back frightens you but you still want to indulge in a little bit of that a-line hairstyling, then this is the haircut for you. The angle isn’t sharp or intense at all. It’s left extremely subtle, yet still has that polished a-line finish we love. Stick straight with no bangs, it’s a highly refined look that’s perfect for all ages.
