1. Slightly Angled Bob Hairstyles for Fine Hair

Avoid that bubble head look.

This bob haircut is best suited for people with round faces. A round face with a curled under, one-length bob gives you the mushroom hair look. To avoid accentuating a round face, try a bob that is slightly shorter by the front of your face. This adds extra movement to your cut, along with breaking up the round look. Get extra style points by wearing this bob pin straight.

2. Short and Curly Bob

Having curly hair is no reason to shy away from short hair! We love curly pixie cuts, but curly bobs work best on fine curly hair. Emphasize your curls with Dove Style+Care Curls Defining Mousse. It will also help to give you extra volume at the root for that flirty, full hair look!

3. Angled Bowl Cut Bob

For something in between a pixie and a modern bob, try this funky angled bowl cut. This look is super high fashion, and a bit hard to pull off. You’ll have to style your hair just so to make this tricky cut work for you on a daily basis. You can flat iron your hair straight, or try a tousled look. When wearing a cut like this one in a messy look, we like a matte effect to the hair. It ups the style factor. Try using Bed Head by TIGI Manipulator Matte Cream to help you to create a matte, texturized style.

4. Bob with Bangs

This style is the new cool.

Bob haircuts for fine hair with bangs is a look we’re expecting to see become a lot more popular in the coming year. It’s totally effortless-looking and super fun at the same time. To take a cut like this and make it super modern (not your ’90s bob!) wear it super sleek. Use some serum, like TRESemmé Keratin Infusing Smoothing Serum, to help you tame frizz while making your hair smooth and shiny.

5. Asymmetrical Bob

Chic, and a little bit edgy, right?

There is nothing quite like the asymmetrical bob. Having your hair shorter on one side with the other side longer looks chic and modern, which is why we love this style! This haircut is great for people with oval, round and heart-shaped faces. The added angles are really pretty and help to break up round features. You don’t have to wear an asymmetrical cut super straight (although it does look great). We like this cut worn curly!

6. Wavy Lob

This cut will always have a special place in our hearts. Photo credit:

Ah, the wavy lob. There will always be a place for this haircut. It’s so great (and so enduring) because it looks good on every face shape and hair type. The lob, or long bob, is an inch or two longer which makes more styles (like ponytails!) easier to manage. When it comes to bob haircuts for fine hair, the lob is a good stepping stone. Wear this cut in the model off duty style for all the chic points.

7. Choppy Straight Bob

Slightly uneven choppy layers give the illusion of thicker hair.

Consider a choppy straight bob that hits just below your jawline if you’re looking for a super flattering haircut. This is great if you want a bob that has a little more length to it, but isn’t quite a lob hairstyle.

8. Naturally Wavy Bob Hairstyle for Fine Hair
