Chin Length Styles and Cuts to Try

Ready for an awesome new you? Read on to check out some of our top chin-length hair ideas that we know you’ll love.

Chin-length layered haircuts are a great way to rock the ever-popular lob while adding in some natural volume via layers. This keeps bulky hair off your ends, allowing your hair to feel more weightless and full! Then, you can have fun with your look by styling your wavy lob with beachy tendrils. Simply spritz TRESemmé Dry Texture Spray and scrunch, using your fingers, for beachy-looking hair.

2. Curled Under Bob

You don’t need to wing it out to get all of that volume from chin-length haircuts. You can go for the smooth, curled-under look, too! We love how this cut can be edgy and wavy (with high contrast blunt bangs) or totally opposite straight hair. To get extra soft and smooth tresses, start with clean, hydrated hair by washing and conditioning with Suave Professionals Lavender + Almond Oil Frizz Calming Shampoo and Conditioner. Then, dry your hair straight using a round brush as you curl your ends underneath.

3. Perfectly Layered for Curls

The perfect way to elongate your round face.

Adding layers to curly hair is one of the best ways to keep from getting that triangular hair look. This is an awesome cut to try if you have natural curls where you can create face-framing and defined layers that will naturally add more volume to your hair.

4. Edgy Asymmetrical Bob

You don’t need to go for the classic chin-length bob to get the look; we like it on asymmetrical bobs, too. When going for the asymmetrical hair look, try styling it straight. When you have layered, it can make straightening your hair a little easier. You don’t need to deal with so many bulky ends all in one spot. In this instance, the layers help you to get a cleaner line for your straight asymmetrical cut.

5. Short-Layered Bob

We have all the heart-eye emojis for this curly look.

Shorter layers are best for those with thinner hair. Short layers mean that you retain all the benefits of layers, but you aren’t losing quite as much hair. We love the look of loose curls on short hair, but they can be a bit difficult to achieve. So, instead, get this look by wearing day-old curls! The curls will loosen up overnight, and you’ll get that cute style.

6. The ’90s Layered Bob

We could not include our favorite ’90s #throwback look. The ’90s layered bob is so perfect today! Sure, if you style it sleek, you’ll get the over-the-top childhood vibes, but it’s totally worth it. We like this cut because you can wear it sleek, but it’s also a perfect cut for styling curled short hair. Switch up your cut, and you can recreate a former favorite.

7. Beachy Texture

Short and sweet.

Chin-length hair is the perfect cut to show off an effortless beachy texture. All you need to do is curl pieces of hair away from your face, brush out the curls, and then lock them in place with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Texture Hold Level 1 Hair Spray. We love this spray because it’ll add control and flexible hold to any style without making your hair feel stiff and crunchy. For this look, the messier, the better, so don’t worry about making picture-perfect curls.

8. Perm Chin Length Cut

For those with round faces looking to try chin-length hair, this light and feathery look has a tousled finish and is definitely one to keep on your style radar. Plus, pairing this look with a deep side part will counteract the circular look of your face shape, drawing attention to all the right angles. Once you’ve got your gorgeous short haircut, simply scrunch sea salt spray into your hair and leave it to air dry. The result? Effortless-looking strands with a cool It-Girl edge.

9. Blunt Bangs

When it comes to hairstyles for chin-length hair for long face shapes, you can’t go far wrong by opting for a rounded, sleek cut with a fringe – like this failsafe French-girl-approved bob and bangs combo! The aim of this cut is to balance out your features and create width, rather than elongating your look further. To keep your mane sleek, shiny, and frizz-free, apply some serum throughout your strands.
