Pixie: Youthful & Fresh

Pairing this hairstyle with some layers at the back will enhance the volume. It will also give your head a nice shape. Sideway bangs at the front would be superb.

This is a hairstyle that looks good on different colors of hair. However, lighter hues are a better choice for this. This is because the uneven colors and the shadows help with the volume as well. Some highlights would do justice to this bob, so you should definitely try that!

Side Bob: Contour And Highlight

If you’re one of those who possess a beautiful long face, this is the one for you. A side bob will highlight your facial features, such as your jawline or cheekbones. Your face won’t look too small because of the bangs in front since it’s long. That is, oval or the like.

You can either do a regular sideway bob or one with a side cut. The side cut one like shown in the picture above, is trendier. However, many are not comfortable with it. But do know that you can pull it off just fine! Give it a try once, you won’t regret it.

If you have curly hair, you shouldn’t pass up on this style. On the other hand, this might look flat on straight hair. Wavy hair is also well-suited to this style.

Layered Bob: More Dimensions

Last but certainly not least, we have the layered bobs. This will bring you definition and the finesse you’re looking for.

A layered bob has all the pros packed in one. It will give you volume, edge, contour, elegance, all in one. You can layer it as you like, angled layers are your best bet.

This hairstyle looks good with all hair colors, but dark hair slays the look. You might want to dye your roots dark if you have light hair color. Nonetheless, this is a fantastic hairstyle to go for.
