Here we have a chin length bob with long bangs. The bob is cut with a slight undercut and feathered marginally to ensure that the tips of the hair automatically curl inwards toward the neck and chin. The long bangs and slight feathered cut along the sides soften the look perfectly.

This is the same cut as the above picture, but the hair is styled in large, tousled waves. The wavy style shows off her rich brown base color that has been interwoven with very subtle lighter copper-brown highlights. These very two different styles showcase the haircut’s diversity and potentially multi-dimensional look.

This is a basic long length bob that has been refreshingly modernized by incorporating it with a full, blunt fringe. The solid dark brown base color and simple straight and sleek style shows off the clean lines and faultless silhouette of the haircut. The tips of the hair curl inwards slightly.
