If you’re planning a trip to the hairdressers’ and need some super-trendy inspiration, take a look at these fabulous new short bob hairstyles with highlights!
Chin-length bobs suit everyone!
Thick hair is perfect for creating sliced layer short bob hairstyles that bring out the best in your hair type. Try smooth curved short bob hairstyles that are cut to curve into the chin. Sliced layering is perfect for thinning out coarse, thick hair and with some clever layering at the ends this style will fall into place after washing.
On straight bob hairstyles you have the perfect blank canvas to paint on some stunning highlighting tones. Try dark coffee mocha brown with auburn-orange vertical highlights for a colour that enhances the smooth shape of short bob hairstyles and warms up pale winter complexions beautifully!
Frizz-free short bob hairstyles
If you have coarse naturally curly hair, try snappy geometric short bob hairstyles, which are also a very trendy look this year. Again, if you ask for sliced layers this will help curly hair to be less frizzy and give smoother and well-defined crisp curls or waves!
Wear your new look with sophisticated no-fringe sleekness or add a trendy straight-across fringe!
Blonde short bob hairstyles
On fine blonde hair, the blunt-cut short bob hairstyles are a great way to add volume. Ask for a stacked-back cut that graduates down to frame the chin at the front and choose a parting that suits your face shape.
The center parting is supposed to be the trendiest look, but it only suits women who have an oval face. Consult your stylist on the best place to put your parting as this can really make a difference in balancing out your face-shape!
Straight or wavy
Off-centre or side partings are just as contemporary and this style can also be worn straight or curly. One fine hair, I would always recommend some twisty waves or curls as it’s an excellent way to add volume!
Honey-blonde is a great shade for winter as it’s warm and softens the face and highlights in rose-gold, butterscotch or caramel will provide a lovely feminine finish to this fabulous short bob hairstyle!
Asymmetrical and symmetrical short bob hairstyles are both trendy right now and the range of highlight techniques for this season is wider than ever before!
