Medium Bob Hairstyles
You’ll see many messy, natural-looking bobs in our selection, but there are also a couple of straight, polished varieties on our list, because they are classics.
#1: Textured Wavy Mid-Length Cut
This bob is composed of a ton of cute flicks, aptly chopped, tousled and skillfully toned to look this amazing. Go for a textured choppy bob with the length at the nape and angled front pieces. With a quality haircut on thick hair, styling your mane will be a breeze.
#2: Tapered Auburn Bob
Medium bob hairstyles with a tapered silhouette work best for fine and medium textured straight hair. It’s better to pair such a chic haircut with a rich monochromatic hair color and style with root volume. Lovely, classy and feminine!
3: Shaved Back Bob
Make your hair lightweight and gorgeous with a slightly layered bob that features a surprise – nape undercut. Being hidden under the top layer of hair, the undercut is ideal for women who want to thin out their hair or use an easy styling trick to keep their locks in place.
#4: Blonde Balayage Bob with Soft Layers
Bob hairstyles are a great canvas to show off a balayage. Short and to the point, when the cut is paired with subtly-different shades of blonde, it exemplifies effortless style. Add in layers to enhance the dimension of your look. `
#5: Glossy Reddish Brown Bob with V-Cut Layers
Glossy hair is the result of a routine centered around the health of your hair. The best way to maintain moisture and shine is to balance the levels of moisture and protein in your hair. Identify the amount of porosity in the strands to find your ideal products. Highly porous hair will need more protein, whereas the locks that are less porous require hydrating care.
#6: Choppy Inverted Bronde Bob
Can’t decide between blonde and brunette? Go for both with the bronde trend. Messy layers teamed with a stacked back will make the out-of-the-ordinary color even more special. It gives the bob some sass and class rolled into one.
#7: Poker Straight Choppy Bob
The ever-popular medium bob looks even cuter given a choppy angled cut. Keep locks straight for a piece-y look that’ll have you the prettiest one on the block! Caramel highlights are the finishing touch.
#8: Shaggy Bronde Bob with Bright Highlights
Highlights are a fantastic way to bring a shaggy shoulder-length bob from drab to polished and chic. Balayage should only be one to two shades lighter than your base color. Adding lowlights or dark roots helps to accentuate the highlighting.
#9: Shaggy Bronde Bob with Razored Layers
We love this cute medium bob haircut with razored layers. The waves make the look relaxed and flirty while the sun-kissed blonde keeps it young and fresh. If you have bangs, no need to chop them off. They’ll work perfectly with a shaggy bob.
#10: One Length Bronde Bob with Feathered Layers
A medium bob with bangs and feathered layers is just the style you need for that glow-up you’ve been anticipating. This look will also work fine if you prefer a solid color.
#11: Blunt Metallic Blonde Bob
The metallic blonde bob may seem simple, but if you’re a low-maintenance woman, it’s the style you want. A quick brush through in the morning is all you need! Point your hairdryer down to seal hair cuticles and keep frizz under control.
#12: Textured Caramel Cut with Swoopy Bangs
For those who would rather not opt for an A-line cut, swoopy side bangs provide enough movement and dimension to a medium layered bob without any excessive edginess.
#13: V-Cut and Razored Blonde Bob
Make your cute medium bob even cuter by teasing out your hair. This gives it body and texture, which straight hair often needs. Set it with hairspray, for all day volume.
#14: Razored Bronde Bob with Ashy Balayage
A razored crop has a lot of texture that pairs well with an ashy blonde. To keep your color cool toned, utilize a purple shampoo and conditioner. Consider getting a quality UV protectant spray to further guard your pretty dye job.
#15: Angled Dimensional Bronde Bob with Layers
A rooty blonde is the perfect idea if you want a lighter toned hair without all the high maintenance upkeep. Routine root touch ups are especially damaging and expensive for women with darker hair, as they are scheduled more frequently and often require longer processing time.
#16: Neat One-Length Bob for Straight Hair
The texture, color, and shape of this stunning medium length bob are perfectly balanced. Subtly sexy for a night out, but easily toned down for the office.
#17: Voluminous Layers and Dark Roots
If you want to make a statement, go for a high-contrast palette. The stark difference between the deep roots and platinum ends of this medium bob haircut gives the style so much life. The fullness of the look further amplifies its sexy allure.
#18: Medium Sweet Blunt Bronde Bob
A mid-length bob with an off-centre part will never go out of style. It creates an asymmetrical frame for the face that corrects the round face shape and softens the angles of a square face. Ask for a blunt cut and keep locks pin-straight for a mod upgrade.
#19: Burgundy and Copper Balayage Bob for Brunettes
Warm tones are most suitable for those with olive or neutral skin undertones. Select golden, copper, or caramel hues to add a color detail to your current medium bob with layers.
#20: Brown Bob with Subtle Caramel Highlights
Above-the-shoulder hair is naturally lighter and, therefore, holds more volume and height. To emphasize body, tease the crown sections and brush hair over. Layers will naturally drape over the teased areas for a seamless look.
#21: Asymmetrical Straight Ash Blonde Bob
Another asymmetrical hairstyle, this angled ash blonde bob with dark roots oozes a mysterious vibe. On a date night, use a sparkly clip to pin hair back for that sophisticated look.
#22: Piece-y Bob with Face-Framing Highlights
A gorgeous season like fall deserves an equally gorgeous hairstyle to go with it. Rock this cute piece-y bob with bright blonde highlights, and you’ll be eye candy.
#23: Cute Golden Blonde A-Line Bob
Blunt chin-length cuts are flattering and structured. If your hair is straight and lacks texture, give it this perfect shape and a beautiful color to shine and look flawless in simple hairstyles.
#24: Cropped Shoulder Length Cut
A shoulder-length bob is one of the most popular lengths today because it is long enough to style in different ways while still retaining the ease of short hair. If you are a low maintenance gal who craves a no nonsense cut that still flaunts plenty of style, definitely go for a cropped shoulder-length number. This works well on both fine and thick hair.
#25: Bronde Bob with Short Shaggy Layers
The shaggy layers on this neck-length bob are to die for. The subtle curls are soft, flirty, and feminine. Hair accessories such as headbands and little clips would be the finishing touches for a date night look.
#26: Disheveled Bob Style
With bob cuts you don’t have to worry about frizz or flyways because they amplify the texture of your hair. Ample teasing and mousse will help keep the disheveled-trend, tame and stylish.
#27: Medium Length Straight Layered Bob
The long sides of the straight layered bob will allow you to keep the length you love but at a manageable maintenance level. Neck-length strands in the back create a flattering inverted shape for this pretty lob.
#28: Collarbone A-Line Bob for Thick Hair
Collarbone bob haircuts are making their presence known. This versatile cut can easily be dressed up for a professional look at work, or toned down with scrunched in texture for those fun weekends out.
#29: Messy Bronde Bob with Jagged Ends
Nothing exudes cool girl vibes more than perfectly imperfect waves. Frizz and all, the shaggy tresses are easy and fun. If you want to recreate this modern take on the bob, use a large barrel curling wand on medium heat. Wrap small sections around the tool and hold for a few seconds. Once you’ve done this to the whole head, brush out the curls, give it a tousle and go.
#30: Gray Bob with Layers
A lot of layered bob haircuts are longer in the front and shorter in the back, which is the case with this medium length bob. The funky style benefits from long wispy layers that have been highlighted and brushed away from the face.
