The bob is one of the most classy and timeless hairstyles. We’ve had a number of famous women wear the bob and popularize it one era or another.
The bob is basically a short haircut for women, and sometimes even men in which the hair is “typically cut straight around the head at about jaw-level, often with a fringe or bangs at the front”.
Popularized first in the early 1920s, the bob still turns heads. Simply put, there isn’t a celebrity that hasn’t worn bob at least once in her life. Today, we will take a look at the asymmetrical bob.
The difference between the classic and asymmetrical bob is that not all parts are equal.
1. Classic Straight Black Asymmetrical Bob
Being that the bob hairstyle is a timeless classic, we start off with a classic bob hairstyle. Simple and elegant, this hairstyle will help you emphasize your jawbone.
2. Wavy Asymmetrical Bob With Tattoo Undercut
There will be quite a lot wavy hairstyles down the road. The best part about wavy hair is that you mask the lines of your hairstyle. In that spirit, a wavy bob does not look as a classic bob at first glance. The undercut tattoo underneath is just the cherry on the icing.
3. Asymmetrical Bob With Curly Waves
Another curly and wavy haircut. As you can see, one side is longer than the other. And there is no denying the hairstyle looks a bit messy. What I like the most is the highlights that truly emphasize the curliness of the hairstyle.
4. White Asymmetrical Messy Bob
Speaking of messy looks, one of the biggest trends lately is to get a “I-just-woke-up” hairstyle. Basically, you look like you do not care one bit about your appearance. Your hair is messy, but good and organized. And to be fair, it is one of the hardest looks to execute.
5. Curvy Edged Asymmetrical Bob
It is all about the volume here. This is a hairstyle that will further emphasize the volume of your hair. Short and simple, yet very effective.
6. Blond Textured Asymmetrical Bob
In its essence, the bob is fairly boring hairstyle. Nothing against the haircut, but it is a classic timeless style that sometimes can look boring. Which is why you always look for new ideas to tweak it. Adding some texture is one of those ways. So, why not blonde?
7. Long Asymmetrical Black Bob With Neon And Vivid Streaks
Last year, the lob, or the long bob took over. The trend has fallen down lately, but we still get long bob hairstyles. On first glance, this is just a classic lob. But it is those highlights that make it shine.
8. Technicolor Sunset Asymmetrical Bob With Side Bangs
As you might have noticed, in most of these asymmetrical bob hairstyles there were no bangs. The reason is simple, the asymmetrical bob rarely has bangs. But every now and then, you see a haircut with bangs that makes you wonder why not?
9. Rumpled Wavy Asymmetrical Lob
On first glance, this hairstyle looks nothing like a bob. Which is why celebrities love it. Many people try to make their bob not look like a classic bob. The wavy hairstyle is a staple for celebrities, from Jennifer Lopez to Miranda Kerr and others.
10. Pink Unicorn One Sided A-Line Bob
Sometimes, all you need for a bob to look awesome is a bit of color. And it doesn’t matter what color. But it is always good to follow the color trends. And in 2017, the unicorn coloring is a huge trend.
11. Choppy Asymmetrical Bob
There are several looks you can get with a bob. But in most cases, the bob looks elegant and stylish, or cute and adorable. This one falls into the latter category. Sort of a hairstyle that will make you look younger and fresher.
12. Asymmetrical Bob Noir
A bombshell worthy hairstyle. If you want to look feminine and sexy, this is the hairstyle that will help you achieve that. Oozing with confidence and power, this is a hairstyle for courageous women.
13. Inverted Curvy Bob With Bangs
I said previously that bangs look good on a bob hairstyle every now and then. In this case, bangs make you look more adorable, and less sexy.
14. Front Lace Long Navy Bob
We started this list with a classic bob hairstyle. But even the timeless classic can get a few different versions. This is one of the alternatives for the classic bob. The difference is in the length, which gives your hair a different line and texture.
15. Asymmetrical Curly Red Bob
If you watched Sex and the City, I am sure you remember Miranda had a bob every now and then. She wore the bob and pixie quite often. And while her hair was not as curly, she did look similar every now and then. This bob hairstyle puts emphasis on volume, and does it perfectly.
16. Edgy Asymmetrical Blond Bob
Despite being an elegant and classy hairstyle, even the bob can benefit from a bit edginess and sass. That is exactly what you get here thanks to uneven lines. A bit texture and layers here and there goes a long way in adding edginess.
17. Classy Wavy Bob
We had the classic straight hair bob at the beginning, so let’s look the classic wavy hair one. As you can see, nothing stands out in this hairstyle. But that is the goal. This is a hairstyle you wear when you want to be subtle, yet elegant and beautiful. Not all of us want to stand out from the crowd.
18. A-Line Asymmetrical Bob With Diagonal Undercut
We had a bob with undercut previously. The undercut allows the bob to shine even more, as it takes care of some excess hair. And you can use the undercut anywhere you like, be it on the back, or on the sides.
19. Asymmetrical Bob With Blue Streak
I’ve said it over rand over again. Sometimes, all it takes to take a hairstyle from dull to unique is one line. Or in this case, just one blue streak that adds playfulness to the style.
20. Mahogany Into Rose Gold Straight Bob
What you notice first here is the volume of the bob. It is really something to be amazed. But even more is the subtle coloring and transformation from one color to another. A work of an artist and an expert no doubt.
21. Wavy Bob With Lavender Highlights
Highlights are always a good idea with bob hairstyle. Especially when you know for a fact that bob is fairly straightforward haircut without them. Highlights are just one of the ways to make your bob unique and whimsical. And it doesn’t matter what color you chose. It all depends on your skin tone, hair color, and preference. Look for one that will emphasize those attributes. In this case, that is the lavender color.
22. Natural Quick Weave Bob
You just cannot ignore the coloring here. It is what makes it special. And it adds sass and confidence.
23. Long Asymmetrical Sided Bob With Diagonal Bangs
This hairstyle reminds me of actresses in the 90s thriller and crime movies. If you like an example, Uma Thurman in Pulp Function but with more messy and wavy hair.
24. Curly Asymmetrical Bob
If you are blessed with curly hair, you do not have to think a lot about your bob. Curls will make it look spectacular without adding anything more. And if you have straight hair, you can try to achieve that curly look, no matter how challenging it is. Believe me, it is worth it.
25. Blond Asymmetrical Balayage Bob With Reddish Undercut
We talked about coloring all this time, and we did not mention one of the most popular techniques. That is the balayage technique, which is becoming more and more popular. This year, the balayage is actually more popular than the ombre. And that says something. The reddish undercut is just a cherry on the icing.
26. Violet And Pink Deep Rooted Bob
What I love here is how the highlights emphasize the layers of your bob hairstyle. That is the best way to make your hair stand out.
27. Textured Asymmetrical Bob
When it comes to waves and hair, some choose to go with frequent, and others with waves just on the bottom of their hair. This falls into the latter category. As such, it is a hairstyle suitable for a daily casual look.
28. Fiery Angled Asymmetrical Bob
It is all about the angles. With the right angles of your hairstyle, you can add edge and character without nothing more. And then you top it off with red fiery hair color, and you have a winner.
29. Blond Chop Layered Asymmetrical Bob
Unconventional bangs, a chop right in the middle of your hair, and blonde hair color. Is there something not to like here? Of course, this is not a hairstyle all of us would wear. It is definitely something out of the ordinary. But if you like to be unconventional, this hairstyle will help you get there.
30. One-Sided Burgundy Asymmetrical Bob
I would like to finish the list with one of the more popular hair colors of 2017 and 2016. The burgundy hair color is definitely something that will stay for a while. And as you can see, it can turn even the simplest and classiest hairstyle into something special.
With that in mind, I would love to see your asymmetrical bob hairstyles.
