Asymmetrical Bob: 15 Haircut Ideas to Swoon Over
1. The Ear Tuck Style
Slide half of your hair behind your ear to put all the attention to one side.
2. Heavy Bangs
Take advantage of your fringe benefits by creating this heavy bang style.
3. Deep Side Part
Go for a high-impact look with a super deep hair parting.
4. Curly Asymmetrical Bob
Try your hand at an elegant look with curls on your asymmetrical bob. Style with Dove Absolute Curls Leave-In Detangler to keep your look clean and knot free.
5. The Subtle Angled Cut
Want something that looks like a bob haircut but not really? Ask your stylist for a subtle angled shape to update the look.
6. Sharp Asymmetrical Bob
This look is great if you’re looking for an edgy cut. The razor-sharp cut adds definition to the overall style.
7. Casual Cut
If you’re looking to achieve something as close to the traditional bob haircut as possible, consider this slightly angled cut.
8. Angular Cut
If you’re going for a full, angular cut, it all depends on your styling technique. Brush your hair forward when blowdrying to create this full effect. Before blow-drying, use a pump of TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum to make sure your strands maintain high-shine and health.
9. Faux Asymmetrical Bob
Tuck your long hair into the neck of your sweater to create the look of an asymmetrical bob without cutting your hair.
10. Short Red Asymmetrical Bob
Short asymmetrical bob on fine hair helps retain movement. When done with layers, it gives the illusion of fuller and thicker hair.
11. Lob Style
Go a little heavier on the front layers to create this modern lob-inspired style. A few sprays of Bed Head by TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Textured Spray will add more volume and drama to your style.
12. Wavy Asymmetrical Bob
If anyone ever tells you that you can’t do much styling with angled bobs, don’t believe them. From waves to curls and low ponytails in between, the options are endless.
13. Blonde Asymmetrical Bob
Update your cut with a striking and bold platinum hue. Keep your hair as bold as the day you dyed it with Catwalk by TIGI Fashionista Blonde Shampoo.
14. Super Short Angled Bob
Looking for a cut that helps frame your face? Look no further than this super short angled crop.
