This year’s inverted bob hairstyles have lots of new tricks and twists making them one of the most contemporary and stylish looks around!
Wavy inverted bob hairstyles
With wavy hair such an important trend this year, it’s no surprise they’ve popped up in many of the latest inverted bob hairstyles. Fine hair looks its best in shorter styles like the bob and waves are a great way to add some volume to an asymmetric bob.
If you’ve always wanted an inverted bob hairstyle, but avoided it because your hair is fine or thin, now is the perfect time to try out the wavy bob! And with highlighting such an important part of every woman’s hairdo this year, you can also give your fine hair the appearance of more density with some clever highlighting!
Medium inverted bob hairstyles
Another bob style that caught my eye recently is the shoulder-length inverted bob, with very loose and defined waves enhance by a subtle sombré highlighting technique drawing attention to the wavy strands. It’s casual and trendy and looks great with blunt-cut ends on fine hair, or tapered tips on thick hair.
The side parting and side-swept fringe look is a very flattering addition to all inverted bob hairstyles, allowing your stylist to position the parting to create the best angle for your face shape.
Best bob cuts by face shape
For example, a strongly angled fringe will help reduce the symmetry of a round face and make it seem slimmer. A long face with a long diagonal fringe will appear shorter, as the forehead is covered and the length of the face is ‘broken’ by the diagonal line leading the eye outwards to the sides.
On a heart-shaped face, like Reece Witherspoon, a modern inverted bob with lightly flicked out tips at chin-level, will add the illusion of width that minimises a sharp or narrow chin.
If you’re lucky enough to have an ideally shaped oval face, you can enhance this with a centre-parting and go for a longer bob, just brushing the shoulders and framing your face with a fabulous oval shape.
Braid details and hair accessories
To add an extra touch of style to inverted bob hairstyles, try braiding the front section above a side-parting and then pinning it on one side of the head with a brooch-style hair accessory.
And on inverted bob hairstyles that are quite short at the back, try styling the back upwards for a spiky texture to contrast with the smooth, wavy or curly sides!
