One of the benefits of short A-line bob haircuts is that they look good on fine hair, as well as medium or thick hair textures!  Fine hair bob hairstyles with a variety of medium and long layers create lovely texture and make it easier to get sufficient volume to achieve lovely, smooth curves.

Trendy boho graduated bob hairstyles in plum red & hot pink highlights

Short hair color ideas for women: This gorgeous plum colored A-line bob haircut’s got a clever secret!  The section between the crown and the nape, which appears to be reflecting so much light that it looks pink, is actually a pink section.  It’s an amazing trick-of-the-eye technique, using a harmonised lighter tone to exaggerate the curved, stacked back of A-line bob haircuts!  Suitable for thick and medium textured hair, (or fine hair set on extra-large rollers to get sufficient volume), this plum and pink bob hairstyle’s a lovely boho variation on blonde or brown hair color ideas.  Not sure what shade of plum is right for you?  Ask your colorist to suggest a shade that will suit your skin-tone exactly.

Messy medium A-line bob haircuts with apricot & strawberry hair color ideas

If you prefer a more casual look,  here’s a fabulous messy bob to inspire your next visit to the salon! The A-line is still evident, but there’s more focus on the uneven finish that creates super texture along the lower edge. The two colors are quite different, but together they produce a lovely Boho look that adds dimension and depth to the hair.  This harmonious combination of apricot and strawberry hair color ideas is subtle enough to be acceptable in any workplace, but you can also get the same look with a temporary wash-in, wash-out pink hair color.  This layered bob hairstyles’ idea is suitable for thick or medium hair, as sharply textured tips in graduated bob hairstyles totally prevent the bulky look that thick hair can have when the ends haven’t been thinned-out correctly!

Edgy extreme short hairstyles & hair color ideas in blonde/grey/yellow/red

Edgy and highly original, this is a youthful style that projects an image of creativity and confidence.  As graduated bob hairstyles go, this has to be one of the most stylish and original we’ve seen for a while.  Best on thick hair, the layers begin about half-way down the head and thin the lower lengths to make a natural curve into the neck.  Instead of having the sides long and graduated to fall on either side of the face, this bob hairstyle has long, deep bangs on one side flicked back to meet the asymmetrical long section that covers the ear and an inch or so of the back. The unusual color combination of gray under dual highlights of neutral blonde and yellow, is perfectly balanced with scarlet balayage on one side of the head in this casual and quirky new look!

Rich copper hair color ideas on spiky messy layered bob hairstyles for thick hair

Short messy hairstyle for summer: Bob hairstyles with added waves can soften a square face by covering-up a strong jawline and drawing the eye down to those sharply textured tips on either side of the chin. And long side-swept bangs can ‘cut-off’ the corners of a wide forehead, or break the circular symmetry of a round face.  Thick hair is needed for this edgy A-line bob haircut, which has thinned-out tips and tons of movement in trendy, casually styled with broken waves.  This beautiful, copper-brown shade is one of the most popular all-over hair color ideas this season, livening up all shades of brunette/dark-blonde/mousey hair into a really eye-catching color!

Chic boho bob hairstyles with bangs for round/heart/oval/long faces and thick black hair

Here’s a great short hairstyle to try if you’re a stylish type, who appreciates simplicity over novelty!  The full, straight-across bangs are great for round and heart-shaped faces and the fairly sleek sides will also help to minimise a wide face.  This short hairstyle is only angled very slightly into an A-line bob haircut shape, making this a suitable bob for fine, medium and thick straight hair.  On fine hair, the layers are long with blunt-cut tips to add thickness around the bottom line, but on thicker hair ask for concave layers just above the tips to create a natural curve.  Chin-length layered bob hairstyles are a flattering choice for long faces, too, with a longer side-swept fringe and extra volume at the sides to complete the look.
