20 Stunning Bob Haircuts With Bangs | DIY Bob Hairstyles

Written by Anjali Sayee

Today we are discussing bobs, not men, but the haircut bob. If the bob is your choice of hairstyle, it can get monotonous sometimes. But trying the bob haircut with bangs changes your look entirely.

Bob cuts look chic, but adding a fringe, like side-swept bangs, can dial up your short hair a few notches. Also, if you have a particular bob style in mind, but the hairstylist suggests it won’t work for your face shape, bangs can change that! And there are so many bob and bang styles to mix and match, so you find the best one for your face.

Eat your heart out with these brilliant bob haircuts styled with bangs. However, if you are unsure which bang style to suit, here are some tips to help.

5 DIY Bob With Bangs Hairstyles

We all love DIY things. Whether it’s lamps, clothes, or hair – we all want to try it out at least once. But, I advise you to practice on a mannequin a few times before you try cutting your own hair. To figure out which bangs will suit your face shape, check out this article!

1. Classic Bob With Feathered Bangs

What You Need
  • Elastic bands
  • Comb
  • Scissors
  • Blow dryer
  • Round brush
  • Hand mirror and main mirror
How To Do
  1. Comb your hair to remove any tangles or knots. Comb all your hair back behind your shoulders.
  2. Tie an elastic band where you want to cut your hair. Do this with the help of both the mirrors.
  3. Once you’re sure, cut your hair just below the elastic band. Do this carefully as one wrong move can change the length of your hair or the style itself.
  4. Once you are satisfied with the outcome, section out some hair at the front for the bangs. Brush the hair down on your face. With one hand, mark the length of the bangs, and cut it straight across with the other.
  5. Spritz a little water on your hair. Brush your hair inward with a round brush while blow drying it at a low-medium setting. Hold it for three seconds at the ends before you let go. Do the same for the bangs.

2. Wavy Shaggy Bob With Tapering Bangs

What You Need
  • Curling iron
  • Heat protectant
  • Hairspray
  • Volumizing spray
How To Do
  1. Go to a salon and ask for a shaggy bob with layers and tapering bangs at the front.
  2. Once you are at home, spritz some heat protectant all over your hair.
  3. In sections, wrap your hair around the barrel of the curling iron for about five to seven seconds.
  4. Curl all your hair in this manner.
  5. Spritz on some hairspray and some volumizing spray.
  6. Flip your hair forward and shake it up. Run your fingers through your hair to give it that messy look.

3. Layered Lob With Light Bangs

What You Need
  • Straightener
  • Hairspray
  • Scissors
  • Comb
How To Do
  1. Using the same method as in the first DIY, cut your hair to the desired length for the lob and bangs. Since the bangs need to be feathered, you’ll need to cut them near or just above the eyebrows.
  2. Using the point cut method, begin feathering your lob and bangs. The point cut method involves holding the scissors facing up and cut upwards.
  3. Style your hair in waves using a straightening iron.
  4. Spritz on some hairspray to set the waves in place. Part the bangs slightly in the center.

4. Undercut Bob With Side Swept Bangs

What You Need
  • Razor
  • Rat-tailed comb
  • Sectioning clip
How To Do
  1. You need some hair-cutting experience to do this haircut. If you are a beginner, practice on a mannequin a few times before cutting your own hair.
  2. With the pointed end of the rat-tailed comb, section off the hair you want to shave, clipping off the rest.
  3. Razor off the hair from the segregated section carefully.
  4. With the pointed end of the comb, part your hair in a deep side parting, making sure the bangs fall on the side that is opposite to the shaved side.

5. Asymmetric Bob With Layered Bangs

What You Need
  • Scissors
  • Elastic bands
  • Comb
  • Round brush
How To Do
  1. Comb your hair to detangle it.
  2. Using the method in the first DIY, cut your hair into a bob and bangs. Remember to keep one side long to create an asymmetrical look.
  3. By cutting the hair back, you’re creating a slight angle where the back is shorter than the front. With this in mind, keep some hair in front of the asymmetric section, so it appears longer.
  4. Spritz some water on your hair and style it with a round brush and blow dryer.

Now that you have your DIY game in place, take a look at 20 of the best bob hairstyles with bangs for some inspiration!

The only thing more iconic than Taylor Swift’s red lips is her French bob! It is inspired by that ‘20s flapper style. It is perfectly paired with a thick fringe in the front. The fringe draws attention to her eyes, nose, mouth, and jawline. This is the ideal look to slay at the red carpet.

5. A-Line Bob With Perfect Side-Swept Bangs

This A-line bob sported by Emma Stone is short at the back and long in the front. It can be at a steep or minimal angle, according to your preference. This hairstyle is more on the minimal side. Keeping your hair short at the back can add volume and texture to your hair. The silky straight side-swept bangs bring a nice distinction to Emma Stone’s otherwise wavy hair. The bangs reinforce a lateral focus on her face, making her eyes and mouth more prominent.

6. The Lob With Side Bangs

With her signature blonde hair, blue eyes, and light lip shade, Brittany Snow has amazing taste. The side bangs and long bob soften her face, giving it a rounder appearance. The slight side parting tapering to the center covers any asymmetrical features and adds volume to the front of her hair.

7. Curly Bob With A Swivel

This curly bob looks so stunning! Spritz on some heat protectant and volumizing spray, and use a curling iron to give your hair those impeccable curls. Then, spritz on some hairspray to set the curls in place. Use a round brush to give your side-swept bangs a perfect swivel.

8. Chin-Length Bob With A Side Parting

A side parting is great for covering large foreheads and wide cheeks. But, if you have great cheekbones (like Britanny Snow), simply tuck the ends of the side sweep behind your ears to flaunt your earrings. If you have a heart- or an oval-shaped face, this hairstyle will really suit you. The chin length of the bob accentuates her jawline and puts it on full display.

9. Retro Waves Bob With Pin-Up Bangs

AnnaLynne McCord is best remembered for her role in 90210, where we get a glimpse into the lives of the elite kids in Beverly Hills. Everyone wanted to copy her iconic style.

Fashion meets edge in this fabulous hairstyle sported by Kristen Stewart. If you love your face shape and aren’t afraid of cutting your locks short, this is the look for you. The sides are cut short and gelled back. Curl the mohawk with a curling iron and set your bangs in the front. Color your hair blonde or in contrasting shades to add texture to your hair.

Big curls make hair look voluminous. Just take a look at Brittany Snow’s locks. Don’t they look bouncy and lush? Your hair can look like that too!

Color dimensions are great for face framing. Dark roots make your face look longer while lighter ends and long side bangs streamline and soften your jawline. If you’re like me and prefer sweeping your bangs to one side, you can do what Brittany did and tuck one side of your hair behind your ear. It’s a great way to showcase your wide cheeks without making them appear big.

14. Long Side Swept Bangs With Curled Ends Bob

Experimenting with contrasts always draws attention, the way Snow’s hair starts straight but ends curly. It’s a great way to make feathered ends look voluminous. The long, deep side bangs draw focus to her eyes.

Clearly, Taylor Swift favors deep side-swept bangs, and they totally suit her. These bangs focus all the attention on her eyes and chiseled nose. The flicked-out ends of her bob draw attention to her jawline and make it look sharper.

I love this hairstyle because it has a double contrast. The dark roots flaunt Selena’s light blonde hair while the wavy bangs bring some dimension to her otherwise straight hair. The dark roots also give the lob an undercut feel without the need for shaving a side off. I love how minimal her entire ensemble is – the hairstyle, the red lip color, black leather jacket, and the infinity earrings. Perfecto!

17. Perfectly Curly Bob And Bangs

Nothing can beat the euphoria you feel when your curls turn out perfect. It’s almost the same feeling I get when I eat fries from my favorite McDonald’s outlet. It’s the same calm I feel when I look at this curly lob. Use rollers and curl defining cream to achieve this look.

18. Graduated Bob With Outwards Bangs

The asymmetrical bob is making heads turn all over the world. It’s an edgy hairstyle, and Charlize Theron is totally pulling it off. Keep your wavy your bangs crisp and allow the rest of your hair to frizz out.

This dark and light dimension bob is incredible. You can see how the contrast makes Julianne Hough’s eyes pop. The bangs show off her cheekbones while covering her forehead. The soft ends make her facial features look sharper in comparison.

A bob hairstyle with bangs will never go out of style, even though hair trends keep changing from time to time. The cropped cut seems daunting, but there is a reason it is a classic. Going chin-length is instantly eye-catching and draws attention to your face. Moreover, it is a lot less hair to cope with. We hope we have covered everything you wanted to know about bob haircuts with bangs and that you will be able to figure out which bangs would look best on you. So what are you waiting for?
