While the traditional, one-length bob haircut remains a classic, we think it’s time to mix things up a bit by checking out the asymmetrical bob haircut! If it’s done the wrong way, the angled cut can look dated, but when done right, you’ll have a fresh, modern, and even edgy new look. And there’s more than one way to go about nailing the perfect asymmetrical bob that could include updating your color, trying out a new shape, or playing with the angle of your chop.
Asymmetrical Bob: 10 Haircut Ideas to Swoon Over
Still, need some help to figure out the best one for you? Scroll through our gallery for asymmetrical bobs that anyone can pull off.
1. The Ear Tuck Style
Slide half of your hair behind your ear to put all the attention to one side. This deep part will draw even more attention to your new cool style.
2. Heavy Bangs
Take advantage of your fringe benefits by creating this heavy bang style. It’s a great way to test out the fringe look without fully committing until you’re sure.
3. Curly Asymmetrical Bob
Try your hand at an elegant look with curls on your asymmetrical bob. This style will add volume and personality to your asymmetrical bob.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. Ultra Short
Take it ultra-short with this cropped asymmetrical bob. The crimped-inspired waves add an extra element of funk to this adorable style.
7. Subtle Asymmetry
If you’re not quite ready to take the plunge into a fully asymmetrical look, consider this subtle alternative. A subtle transition is a little less dramatic and is a great option if you’re hoping to ease into the trend.
8. Beach Waves
Use Nexxus Between Washes Beach Waves Tousled Texture Sea Salt Spray to add some movement and texture to your asymmetrical bob. This laidback version of this trendy style is one of our favorites.
9. Thin Fringe
Add even more personality to your asymmetrical bob by having your stylist add a thin fringe to your haircut. This mid-length set of bangs is on-trend this season!
10. Tuck and Pin
When in doubt, simply tuck and pin. Accessorize your fresh cut with a sparkling hair clip that works for every season! Use a touch of TRESemmé Extra Hold Hair Gel to hold that tuck in place.
