20 Bob Hairstyles For Fine Hair 2017
Let’s be honest about this … There is nothing easy about fine hair. In fact, fine and flyaway hair is one of the most difficult hair types to manage sometimes. Trying to put it up in a ponytail is pointless without plenty of backcombing, lots of styling products, and more hair grips than you can shake a fist at.
Short hair is often considered a no-no for women with fine hair too, but just with the intricate updo’s, there are ways that you can battle the fine hair curse when you want to go for the chop. These 20 bob hairstyles for fine hair 2017 should give you a few tips on how you can go forward with your new style ideas.
1 – Asymmetrical Ashy Cool Bob
Looks like this might seem as if they might be really high maintenance, but the truth of the matter is quite different. Shorter styles are quicker and easier to wash and then dry, as well as style. Curls are quicker, straight hair is quicker. In fact, everything is quicker. That’s just one of the reasons why these cute bob styles are such a big hit for busy ladies.
2 – Sharp & Sleek Champagne Bob Style
Fine hair seems to hold its volume when it is kept at a shorter length, and that’s because you don’t have the length itself weighing the hair down. Whether you opt for a sleek and straight look, or a curly and wild one, the end effect will be the same — your fine hair will appear thicker and with more volume than what it did when you left your locks long.
3 – Blonde, Sharp & Textured
If you have a face shape that is considered square, you should opt for a bob length that sits just about chin length or longer. Anything shorter than this, and you might find that the style isn’t flattering for your face shape.
4 – Fluffed Up & Fabulous
You should have a good chat with your hairstylist before you make any final decisions on what bob hairstyles for fine hair 2017 will work for you. They will tell you if the cut you want is suitable for fine or thin hair, instead providing alternative suggestions that might even look much better when it’s all finished.
5 – Stacked, Textured & Razored
Adding highlights and different tones of colour really works with this cut to make the hair appear thicker and full of life. It’ a great trick — adding or ‘faking’ new dimensions with colour and a clever cut, and you will often find that a few low-lying layers will also add extra oomph.
6 – Honey & Caramel Toned Wavy A Line Bob
You don’t need to have hair that is naturally straight in order to rock these bob hairstyles for fine hair 2017. Cut your bob to about chin length and then you have the option to add waves or straight, sleek lines, dependant on your mood that day.
7 – Powerful Pink Prettiness
Why not go the whole hog and change your colour while your’e changing your cut? This pretty in pink shade works really well with that sleek bob style, and is just one example of how easily it could be for you to play around with colour.
8 – Dimensional Fall Bob
Copy the shades of the season for an in-trend style that really rocks, proudly displayed by this stunning all-inspired colour. Various blends of browns, blondes, rich coppers and more have been cleverly mixed together vertically, offering a great way to really pack a punch with your new do’.
9 – Naturally Blonde Bob Haircuts for Fine Hair 2017
Short hair and layers is a dangerous look if you don’t really know what you’re doing, and you should aim to keep them relatively soft if you’re not on the lookout for a severe and harsh cut. Softer layers add romance to the style, and can also help to add that volume too.
10 – Gunmetal Grey Modern Bob
Grey hair is no longer associated with pensioners alone, with a number of A-list celebs rocking the metallic shade over recent months. This gunmetal beauty shows you how easy it could be to switch over to a really cool and fresh new colour. It’s a modern bob with a traditional twist, and we love it for that.
11 – Bob Cut with Bright Blonde Blends
A simple hairstyle, this look helps to add volume to thin and fine hair because of those stacked layers at the back. A no-fuss look for a no-fuss babe, and one that looks awesome in that shiny, blonde shade too. But what are your thoughts? Don’t forget to leave your comments in the box below. Which one is your favourite?
12 – Rainbow & Smooth Bob Cut for Fine Hair
Of course, if you really want to think outside the box, updating your sleek and smooth bob entirely, how about all the shades of the rainbow? This pretty look will catch everyone’s eyes for all the right reasons!
13 – Gold Blonde Soft Bob
Don’t be afraid to leave some length in your locks, opting for a more of a ‘lob’, also known as a longer bob, than a traditional and shorter bob style. It’s the perfect look for when you want to grow your shorter bob and other styles out too. Don’t you love it when a style can multitask?
14 – Classic Inverted Warm Bob
Classically inverted, this is a great hairstyle for those who don’t want to spend hours on their hair, first thing in the morning. That chestnut colour is perfect for fall and winter seasons, but you could add more lightness to it with honey and light blonde highlights when the warmer weather comes around. Those stacked layers, once again, help to add volume right at the back, the longer layers in the front being the most flattering part of the look.
15 – Low Lying Layers
If you have fine hair, big and thick bangs are often not a great choice. You have very little volume to play with, before you look into adding hairpieces, products and other things, and you may find that sharp or heavy bangs can pull away from the beauty of the main bulk of your hair. Look for wispy bangs, rather than blunt ones, and also consider sweeping it over to one side too.
16 – Messy & Textured Bob
Blunt styles don’t tend to work so well on thicker hair types, but thin hair can do really well with these sharp and sleek styles. A smoothing creme can easily be used over the top, once all styling has been finished, to make sure no hair falls out of place. On the other end of the spectrum, this look is also easily mussed-up, giving you that modern and edgy look.
17 – Flaming Red over Deep Purple Bob Haircut
If you want to stand out, throw bright, flaming red over a deep, rich purple shade, as shown by this stunning bob hairstyle. A large, round brush will help you to create those fabulous flicks, hand in hand with your hairdryer. You don’t even need heated styling tools or lots of products to achieve this fab look at home.
18 – Light Blonde Dipped & Blended
Of course, you could always add high contrast to the mix, as shown by this look, combining beautiful and bright blondes over dark and deep brown shades. Just because you don’t have length on your side, doesn’t mean you can’t play around with colour. Vertical shades of blonde and lighter brown tones in this look is what really makes it stand out.
19 – Chin Length with Face Framing Layers
Face framing layers are universally known as flattering, and with this short and choppy, almost pixie look, that point cannot be argued. The lighter tones thrown in around the face have also helped to make this quite harsh look much softer in nature.
20 – Short Bob with Razored Layers
Keep the highlights towards the end of your short hair looks to add more dimension to them, and also look at adding a few razored layers too. This will help to add movement to your hair, but still maintaining the softness you’re hoping for. Just like many of the other looks on this page, this bob look could be worn scrunched up and soft, or sleek and business-like. It just depends on how you feel when you wake up in the morning!
