Our Fave Chin Length Hairstyles and Haircuts
This fresh-off-the-runway look gives you a seriously stylish and edgy vibe. It draws attention to the eyes, makes short foreheads appear longer, and even works at making round faces look thinner. It’s a fun and interesting hairstyle that definitely makes a style statement! If your goal is to stand out, this messy chin length ‘do won’t get you disappointed.
2. Sleek bob
A sleek bob may look simple but it’s far from boring. Achieve this look by straightening your hair using a flat iron. Iron the tips of your hair inwards to get rid of flyaways. Then, just finish with a drop of hair serum for a glossy, frizz-free finish.
3. The Side Sweep
Blunt bobs are always going to be fabulously fashionable, and the Side Sweep, with pin-straight hair and a deep side part, has the catwalk written all over it. Enhance this hairstyle even more with cute hair clips and bobby pins.
Editor’s tip: To get this sleek look, wash your hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and condition with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner. This salon-quality system will help you achieve the straight, frizz-free hair required for this chin length hairstyle.
4. Smooth, layered, and side-swept
Inspired by the 70s’ mushroom bob, this layered ‘do keeps things trendy with longer, less rounded cut; and instead of full bangs which are the star of the vintage look, the fringe in this modern version is soft and side-swept.
5. Graduated Bob
An angular chop with the longest strands hitting the chin like this is not only ultra trendy and sophisticated, it also gives your hair dimension and an instant volume boost. Remember: the shorter and higher the layers, the more voluminous it would look.
6. Vintage Waves
Skip your signature beachy waves and go for something more retro like this very classy and elegant hairstyle featuring vintage-ish waves and a side-part. It’s a sophisticated look but also has a hint of cute. To learn how to perfect waves for short hair, watch this step-by-step tutorial.
7. Bob With Headband
Make your short hairstyle more fun by jazzing it up with your favorite headband. When you’re having a bad hair day and you don’t have time to style your hair, just put on a headband, and voila! Hair crisis averted. This is also a great summer look to wear during your trips to the beach.
8. Ombre Bob
Pair your bob with a splash of colors that show your personal style. This green/grey/purple ombre is particularly interesting, trendy, and gives an aura of confidence. If you want to go for more subtle shades, you can match your chin length hairstyle with more natural shades like browns or reds.
Editor’s tip: Keep your hair color vibrant for as long as possible by using products that are particularly formulated for colored hair. We recommend Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner, which is specially designed to protect colored hair from dryness and dullness. It also enhances vibrancy and gives your hair up to 80% color protection.
9. Wavy Layered Bob
With waves, your chin length bob won’t look flat and limp and your layers get more defined. Make sure to point-cut the tips of your bob to give it texture. You can also add side-swept bangs for a softer look.
10. Hollywood Curls
If you want to braid your chin-length hair, go for the headband braid. It keeps hair off your face so you look neat and chic. It suits short curly hair as well.
11. Layered Blonde Bob
Look edgy by getting a layered chin-length bob and experimenting with hair colors. If you want a drastic makeover, try platinum blonde or ombre hair.
Editor’s tip: Let your hair recover from bleaching and coloring by using Dove Intense Repair 1 Minute Serum Conditioner. It has serum capsules that go deep into your strands to nourish and repair damaged hair.
12. Messy Asymmetrical Bob
Jazz up a one-length hairstyle by going for the asymmetrical bob. Part your hair deeply on one side so that the unevenness becomes more visible, then simple finger-comb or scrunch your hair to style. It’s also a clever hair hack when you want to disguise a bad hair.
13. Textured Bob With Bangs
Exude a très chic vibe by going for this French Bob hairstyle. If you already have naturally wavy hair, all you need to do is iron your bangs so it stays in good shape. But if you have straight hair, you can easily add texture by curling your hair one small section at a time and finger-combing your waves to make them loose and relaxed.
Aren’t these chin length hairstyles a winner? Go on and give them a try. Sport a fresh, new look that’s perfect not just for summer but all year long.
