Choppy Bob

One of the easiest ways to glam up your short bob hairstyle is with a braid or twist at the front. Add some curls, spritz with a texturizing spray, and you're all set!

The short bob is a relatively "safe" option as far as women's short hairstyles go, so adding a pop of bold, metalltic color is the perfect way to create an edgy look. 

Platinum Blonde Short Bob

A short bob is perfect for blondes because it shows off the dimension of the color. From platinum to more ashy shades, you get to show off everything you're working with. 

Balayage Bob

This is another look that's great for ladies with fine hair because the bob and balayage work together to create tons of dimension, making your hair look ten times thicker.

Pixie Bob

If you're leaning on the shorter side, a pixie bob is the right choice. With longer, swooping layers, you still have room to style your locks the way you want, without all the hassle and maintenance that comes with having longer hair.

Curled Bob

The stacked bob works best for women with thick hair, and while it looks low maintenance, it can be handful to handle it you try to flat iron all those layers. However, if you stick to tousled soft waves, it doesn't take long to style.

Bob with Shaved Sides

Another way to pull off an edgier bob hairstyle is to add an undercut or shaved sides. It doesn't limit your styling options, either.

Tousled Bob

Sometimes, second-day hairstyles are a must, and this is one of our faves. Just spray a bit of shampoo and throw the top layer of your hair into a messy bun.

A blunt bob works for all hair types, but we recommend it for ladies with thin hair because it makes your locks look instantly thicker. Who doesn't want that?

Silver Bob

We're drooling. This silver/gray bob is one of our favorites on this list and looks adorable with tousled, beachy waves. To replicate it, take a large-barrell curling iron and curl in one-inch sections, alternating directions each time.

If you're not into the blunt bob, adding side-swept bangs is a perfect way to soften the look.

Wavy Bob

The textured bob hairstyle is a happy-medium between straight and curled, giving you a classy, put-together style you can wear anywhere.

This bob hairstyle shouts Alexis Bledel (AKA Rory from Gilmore Girls), and who doesn't want to resemble America's Sweetheart? But fair warning - this hairstyle requires more maintanence than most because of the blunt ends and bangs.

Graduated Bob

Opting for a graduated bob is a great way to diversify your bob hairstyle. Its stacked layers add instant volume in the back, too.
