We’ve finally come across the hairstyle of 2015: the graduated bob – an angled haircut with stacked layers in the back. And it makes sense; it’s trendy, it’s short; which is why it is a perfect look for summers. From Shakira’s asymmetric bob to Keira Knightley’s midi bob, we’ve rounded up ten graduated inspiration bob hairstyles that are sure to leave you tressed to impress!
Is there anything more sophisticated and chic than a graduated bob? Of course not! And that’s exactly why we absolutely adore Eri Fukatsu’s beautiful sleek graduated bob. The center part adds some sass and fun to the look while the straight hair gives this style a burst of coolness and energy. This look works perfectly for a formal event where dressing sharp is key.
We can’t get enough of Victoria’s blonde bob with caramel highlights, especially when they are well textured and groomed. Contouring her jaw line beautifully, this asymmetrical bob is sexy and edgy, and suits most face shapes. Flat iron your hair to shape this angled cut, which is a bit longer in front and shorter at the back. So, if you have a heart shaped face like VB, opt for an off-side partition to soften the forehead. This will enhance your eyes and cheeks perfectly.
WOW. There are too many reasons to love Brittany Snow’s look. Let’s begin with the asymmetric bob – so trendy and they frame Brittany’s face beautifully. And check out that blonde hair color! To get this look, flat iron your angled hair, and then mist with an anti-frizz serum for that final finish.

Her jet black graduated bob is classic yet modern, and she sports a choppy side-swept parting.
