3. Inverted Bob

One of our favorite face-framing bob haircut styles is the asymmetrical cut. To get the best out of this look though, maintenance is key. Keep your face-framing angles trimmed, neat and balanced.

4. Concave Bob

Say hello to inverted bob’s sibling. Similar to the silhouette of the inverted bob, the concave bob has an inward cut that frames the neck and face. To give this bob hairstyle a fresh update, add soft curls to the longer lengths of the cut.

However, as you can see from this bob haircut 2016 roundup, you can do just about anything to your bob like throw it up into this chic, fuss-free bob updo hairstyle.
