One of the biggest pulls to getting a short haircut is how weightless and easy to style your hair will become. Shorter hair is as effortless as it gets, and the volume you’ll achieve by how lightweight your strands become is incomparable. Adding layers and turning your bob into a layered bob will take that lightweight feel to the next level. If you’re thinking about getting a layered bob, take a look at this gallery for inspiration:
Layered Bob: 10 Easy and Weightless Styles to Consider
Check out our guide below to help inspire your next layered bob look.
1. Sleek and Shiny
Give your subtle layers a leg up by amping up their shine factor. Comb a shine spray through just the bottom of your strands to give them a dose of sleek and healthy shine without weighing them down.
2. Feathered Edges
If you aren’t quite ready for a set of full and heavy layers, consider asking your stylist for feathered layers. This simple technique makes a world of difference in the appearance of your layers and allows you to reap the benefits without sacrificing too much length.
3. Feathered Edges
Complement your layers by pairing them with a fresh new dose of color. We love how a bob looks with this rooted blonde color. Ash or beach blonde highlights are also a great way to add some dimension to your look.
4. Product-Free Curls
You’ll be happy to hear that this is probably one of the easiest-to-achieve looks of the collection. Use a curling wand to create random curls throughout your style and leave the look product-free for laid-back, loose, and textured results.
5. The Simplest Hair Hack
If you’re looking for a way to fake natural-looking curls, then this is the hair hack for you. By alternating the direction you curl each piece, you’ll mimic the pattern found in natural curls. Easy enough, right?
6. Dye Your Strands Darker
Another color option for your fresh cut is a bold shade of dark brown hair color. We love this edgy color paired with an equally edgy cut. Make sure to switch to a color-safe shampoo and conditioner to make your new hue last as long as possible. We love Suave Moroccan Infusion Color Care Shampoo and Suave Moroccan Infusion Color Care Conditioner for their color care benefits and for how smooth and soft the system leaves our strands.
7. Curling Wand Magic
All you need to create this style is a curling wand and a little bit of skill. Use your wand to create curls that direct away from your face and for a finished style that took less than five minutes to create.
8. Fiery Red Locks
Make your layered bob pop with a fresh dose of fiery red hair color. This is the perfect look if you are looking to step out of your comfort zone a bit this upcoming Fall. Protect your vibrant color with The Good Stuff Color Protect Milk while styling your hair on regular basis.
9. Fake it Till You Make It
If you’re looking for a way to add extra volume to thin hair and give the appearance of thicker strands, then layers are the best choice for you. Shorter layers will bounce up and make your hair look even thicker.
10. Take It Back a Few Decades
Give your hair a permanent curl by having your stylist give you a perm. Curly styles look best when cut into a layered haircut.
