Stylish sleek medium bob hairstyle with fabulous asymmetric curve on medium-blonde

This is a supercute medium hairstyles option for thick hair, which suits oval, round and heart face shapes.  Hair swept over the crown from a deep side parting, breaks the symmetry of a round face.  Sliced layers remove bulk and a curved bob hairstyle shape appears, thanks to inverted layers at the end of long, smooth sections.  Added height from the lightly teased wave around the forehead helps lengthen the face and as this model has a heart face, notice how the curves on either side of the chin balance out the sharp angle from wide cheekbones to narrow chin. The softly flattering medium blonde shade moves from warm brown roots to a pretty all-over blonde in a very stylish Mob hairstyles‘ idea!

Elegant wavy Mob hairstyles with blonde balayage on thick hair inverted bob

Casual elegance is easy to achieve on shoulder-skimming bob hairstyles like the one below.  It’s yet another version of the versatile inverted bob hairstyles that are such popular hairstyles for spring and summer.  This mob hairstyle has blunt-cut tips that add strong lines and thickness at the ends of fine or medium hair.  Shorter layers make it easy to get volume around the head before curving in to form part of the cute, waved section around the outline.  Blonde balayage is concentrated at the sides and tips, emphasising the casual waves and creating a soft frame for the face.

Super-cute sleek bob hairstyles for round faces plus gorgeous all-over copper tint

Round faces look best framed by strong, straight lines, so the asymmetrical bob hairstyles are a great choice!  This shoulder-length hairstyles’ option looks simple, but it’s full of face-flattering features! A full fringe covering the forehead creates a nice diagonal line, leaving a little triangle of forehead on one side and covering just one eye-brow.  Wide cheekbones can be ‘slimmed’ with sleek sides on medium hairstyles.  Hair falling below chin-length automatically makes a round face appear longer, which is also very flattering.  Ask your colorist for a shade to complement your eye-color, like this rich, copper hair color idea accentuates the model’s brown eyes!

Perfect bob-hairstyles to frame a round face

Medium hairstyles can be the perfect face-framing look for a round or oval face shape.  This model has such a clear complexion that it makes sense to accentuate it with simple, medium hairstyles.  To lengthen a round face add height, like this bare forehead with a quiff/wave above.  Keep the sides sleek and accentuate the lips and a nicely shaped chin with a few shorter layers and textured tips that make the hair curve in naturally!  This style suits medium to thick textured hair.

Centre partings on mob hairstyles suit oval faces best and create some of the most popular hairstyles for spring and summer 2016.  This bob hairstyles’ idea works on thick or medium hair. Long layers with inverse layering at the tips, shape the cute curves on each side of the chin.  It’s a very chic hair color idea with medium-blonde balayage/ombré starting at eye-level, accentuating them beautifully.  And we love the extra detail of the tips tinted brown – a new twist adding lots of texture to smooth bob hairstyles!

Perfect shoulder length hairstyles for heart-shaped faces

If you have a round or heart-shaped face, here’s a cute shoulder length hairstyles’ idea that will really flatter your face-shape.  Deep-cut, heavy bangs break the symmetry of a round face and will cover up a wide forehead on a heart face.  With the bangs abruptly graduated down to a longer length just covering the corner of the eyes, the widest part of the face at cheekbone level, looks narrower.  If your chin is narrow, having a puffy wave on either side makes the chin appear wider and balances the face beautifully.  The softly textured tips of the bangs and the gentle, natural waves ensure this casual look remains a popular hairstyles’ option for spring and summer!

Straight medium bob hairstyles with arrow-shaped textured tips

Probably not this model’s favorite photo of herself, but this pic demonstrates the skill and artistic imagination of a talented hair stylist perfectly!  An off-centre parting is a flattering choice for a face that’s between an oval and a round shape.  A bare forehead helps lengthens a round face, along with mob hairstyles cut a few inches past the chin. Notice how the sleek, long layers of this unusual, inverted bob hairstyles’ idea draw attention to the model’s pretty, blue eyes.  And the most exciting new twist to this fresh, medium hairstyles’ design are the fabulous ‘arrow-tip’ textured ends adding lots of edge to a simple, but striking bob hairstyle!
