5 Super stylish layered bob hairstyles

Lightly feathered bob

Perfect for thick hair, this short, layered bob helps to create a stylish look, while taking away some of the bulkiness. Ask for short, feathered layers around the crown of your head to make your hair lighter, leaving the longer lengths near your jawline. Style it by adding some texturising spray, like the VO5 Give Me Texture Dry Texturising Spray (£3.99*), to the mid-length and ends of your hair once your mane is dry.

A layered bob works really well with more length, giving you lots of room to play with and produce different textures. For a fun, flirty look that’s perfect for a night out, create waves through your layers by using a curling iron. Once you’re done, separate them with your fingertips, and spray some VO5 Dry Texturising Spray to add extra definition.

While this style might be a bit of a mouthful to say, it’s a fresh and refined option that’s perfect if you’re after a cut that will give you a bold look. Style your hair with a side parting, keeping the layers at the front uneven, with one side longer than the other (the difference doesn’t have to be dramatic) to create an attractive look.

Create this smooth and sleek look by blow-drying your layered bob with a round brush, and finishing off with a smoothing serum, like the Toni&Guy Glamour Serum Drops (£7.49*), to enhance the style and add subtle shine.

Tip: this cut looks gorgeous if you have highlights added through your haircut, as it’ll beautifully how off the different hues across your layers.

A light and wispy layered bob looks perfect when paired with a soft, feathered fringe. Plus, this style works a treat with fine hair, as it can help to create the illusion of a more voluminous look. To style it, dry your hair using a hair dryer and a large round brush, adding extra lift at the roots, while keeping your look smooth overall. Work in a tiny amount of Toni&Guy Glamour Serum Drops to create some texture at the ends without taking away the volume.
