5 Best Bob Haircuts for Fine Hair

Bring on the beautiful bobs!

This year, the bob is back and more fashionable than ever (all thanks to the Prada spring/summer show)! But if your hair is on the thinner side, you may be feeling like you can’t rock this oh-so chic look – but you’d be wrong. We’re here to tell you, that there are a whole host of bob haircuts for fine hair, that you can easily work this season.

From the wob and lob (that’s the wavy bob and long bob, FYI), through to graduated crops, there really are so many options to choose from! So, if this sounds like the short hairstyle you’ve been searching for, simply scroll down to discover our top 5 uber-chic bob haircuts for fine hair, now.

1. Chin-length bob

As a general rule of thumb, the shorter your bob is, the thicker your hair will appear – after all, without lots of length weighing your hair down, your tresses can bounce freely! And this season, the chin-length bob is back in a big way, making this classic cut the perfect look to injecting some much needed volume into thin strands. Credit@27smileyface

2. Long bob

While shorter crops often give a fuller-looking appearance, that’s not to say you can’t also pull off a longer bob if you have thin hair! Dubbed the hairstyle of year, the long bob is sleek, stylish, and super chic – and is also a style that can be adapted to suit all face shapes, as well as all hair types. So, no matter if your mane is curly, wavy, or super straight, a lob is right up your street! Credit: @kenn_nobarbie

3. Wavy Lob

Let’s face it, waves look amazing all year round. And if you happen to have thin hair, they’re a great way to add volume, texture, and shape to same-length locks! If you normally wear your hair straight, and are unsure about trying a wavy look, start out with subtle, face-framing waves. But for those of you who like to live on the wild side, don’t be afraid to embrace this season’s ‘bedhead’ look, for a roughed-up-and-ready finish! Credit: @benjamin_nelson

Editor’s tip: To help you create your luscious wavy bob, prep your tresses with the TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Creating Sea Foam, before blow-drying your strands.

4. Choppy bob

If you’ve been rocking a bob for quite some time now, and feel you need to give your look a bit of a seasonal shake-up, then the addition of choppy layers could be just what your mane needs! Thanks to the varying lengths of the layers, this simply technique instantly creates the illusion of thicker tresses, giving any standard bob haircut a new and exciting dimension. Credit: @stylememos

Editor’s tip: For an highly-textured look, spritz your mane with the VO5 Give Me Texture Rough & Sexy Sea Salt Sprayto help enhance the choppiness of your layers!

Then you’re in luck, because the asymmetric bob has held it’s position as one of the hottest short hairstyles, yet again. Taking a step away from its straight-cut cousin (the classic bob), the asymmetric cut of this bob hairstyle creates a daring and fashion-forward edge, that’s sure to get you noticed! Credit: @melschaefers
