Choosing a hair color is one of the most fun things about having hair. You might prefer neutral hair colors – such as brown or blondes – or be daring and bold with the more colorful end of the spectrum by choosing blues, pinks, purples, or any other color in the rainbow. Whether you’re experienced with having color in your hair or not, one thing is for sure: a bob is one of the best haircuts to experiment with color.
Check out these 15 colorful bobs to see why one of them is your next look!
1. Colored Bob with Weave
Turquoise and yellow blend beautifully on a wavy graduated bob. No fancy tricks here, a simple part is all you need to be on your way for the day.
2. Bob Haircut with Two Colors
Brave enough to try a unique short hair color combination? A stark red and deep black give a bob an edgy lift. Use heat protectant when straightening locks and smooth flyaways with hairspray. A blunt bang completes the ultra-mod hairstyle.
3. Ombre Bob
4. Sew in Bob
For the sew-in bob hairstyle that catches everyone’s eye, go for a bright orange. The uncommon color looks good whether dressed up with a leather jacket or down with daily work attire.
5. Braided Bob with Color
When you have a fancy event to attend, no need to stress: a straight textured bob with baby bangs and a couple long stray pieces is your best friend. The blend of pink and warm yellow makes for a sherbert-rich color that a side braid will show off well. See more multicolored hairstyles here.
6. Blonde Bob
7. Caramel Hair Bob
If you’re an active woman who spends a lot of time out and about and you don’t want your hair in the way, choppy bob with summery waves and caramel blonde hair color is all you need to feel like a princess.
8. Red Bob
We’re pretty sure Rihanna has pulled off this straight center-parted bob. The dark red is a definite must-try for women who love an edgy look.
9. Pink Bob
Baby pink hair color works wonders when you want to express your soft and sweet side. Bangs that stop just above the eyebrows and an off-kilter side part add volume.
10. Long Colored Bob
Long layered bobs are a great choice if you want added built-in style. For women with thin hair, layers create body. This baby blue color with subtle darker blue streaks at the bottom is a fun way to change up your look.
11. Short Bob with Color
Super short bobs stop just at the jawline which is especially flattering for women with oval face shapes. Piecey bangs help to make the chic style not too overwhelming.
12. Side Part Bob
Here’s a gorgeous take on the mom’s curly bob look: a yellow-blonde wavy bob with a side part. Control the texture with the heaviness of your part and the number of waves you put in. This is a great day or night look.
13. Box Braided Bob
14. Blunt Cut Bob with Color
An ultra-mod hairstyle is this cropped bob with a blunt bang and sideburn detail. When work rules don’t allow you too much freedom with color, subtle dark green color will help you out.
15. Colored Stacked Bob
This stacked bob features dark purple at the longer layers near the front of the face with the color fading as it nears the short pieces at the back. There’s no shortage of style here!
When it comes to picking colors for your bob hairstyle, choose ones that will complement each other for the best result. Pinterest is a great resource as are lookbooks or your favorite celebrity’s past hairstyles. But be careful, if your work has rules about what’s appropriate, don’t get carried away. However, remember you can still have fun with color: just use faded highlights or under color!
