11 Ways to Wear a Black Hair Bob

Nothing gets classier than this.

If you’re anything like us, getting bored of bob haircuts isn’t ever a thing. Every time we come across a bob haircut style, we get the itch to try it! (Then again, we often think about how cutting our hair will stop us from wearing our lazy day ponytails too, so we figure wigs could also be a great alternative.) Nowadays though, we’re obsessed with black hair bobs. This is a hair color that is a classic and we don’t think anyone could go wrong with a sharp black hue.

If you’re thinking of going short and want a classic color, black hair bobs may be a great fit for you. To help you decide which look to get, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite black hair and bob combinations for you to choose from:

1. Abstract Bob

2. Asymmetrical Bob

Go longer for the lob effect.

This longer version of the bob, which is also known as the lob haircut, works well if you’re thinking about growing your bob haircut out. If you have layers, set with a flexible hold hairspray like Dove Style+Care Flexible Hold Hair Spray to help maintain the healthy movement of your hair.

8. Micro Bangs
