So you think you’re ready for bold, choppy bob hair? Choppy hair is one thing, and a bob hair cut is another, but combined they make you quite the show-stealer. Before you cut, let’s chat choppy bob hair, shall we?
First of all, this look works best on straight or wavy hair. As far as the length of the bob goes, you’ll need to analyze your face shape to decide on a length that flatters you. For round faces, a longer bob will lengthen your face. If you have a square face or jaw, the length of the bob should fall below the chin to soften your square angles. For a fail-safe length, start with a longer bob that falls between your chin and shoulders.
Bangs are a must for choppy bob hair. Start them around the nose for pieces that can transform from face-framing layers to side-swept bangs when brushed to the side. If you want a messy, tousled look, ask your stylist to create uneven layers throughout your hair and razored, eye-skimming bangs.
If you’re thinking of choppy bob hair, you’re not alone. With this fun, trendy cut in place, you’ll join the ranks of ladies like Cameron Diaz, Kiera Knightley, and Dianna Agron. To browse other bob looks, view our gallery of the best celebrity bobs.
