Bob Haircut Idea #2: The Lob 
This is a great haircut for those who are transitioning to shorter hair. It’s called a lob because it’s a longer version of your traditional bob, which means you get the benefits of chic, cool-girl cut without having to sacrifice all your length at once.

Bob Haircut Idea #3: The Angled Lob
Shake things up by getting an asymmetrical bob haircut. Ask your stylist to make your bob angled by cutting it shorter in the back and have the strands in the front come down to your shoulders.

Bob Haircut Idea #4: The Clavicle Lob
The newest bob haircut to hit our radars is the clavicle lob. Think: a lob but taking it one step further. Allow the strands in the front of your head to come down two to three inches below your collarbone while the back strands remain short.

Bob Haircut Idea #9: The Choppy Bob 
Just because your hair is short doesn’t mean you can’t add a little bounce with the help of layers. Get a choppy bob to add some movement and volume to your short hair.

Bob Haircut Idea #10: The Above-the-Shoulder Bob
