40 Gorgeous Curly Hair Bobs That’ll Set You Apart

A curly hair bob is the solution to all your struggles with having curly hair. With shapely styles that keep curls contained yet defined, and looks that flatter any face shape, it’s a must.

 

New Ideas for Curly Hair Bobs

Curly bobs are fairly easy to manage, requiring only a trim every couple of months and maybe a little curl creme to keep them enhanced. Here are 40 gorgeous options for curly hair bobs.

#1. Curly Long Bob

With the right product, your curls will no longer be frizzy. They’ll be the focal point of your style fashioned as a curly bob.

 

#2. Medium Curly Bob

If you want to see what your hair would look like short but not pixie-short, a medium bob is for you. Here, one side is shorter than the other, creating an attractive uneven dimension.

 

#3. Curly Bob with Layers

Layering kinky-curly hair is the quickest and easiest way to make your thick hair tameable. From the front, it also makes hair appear square instead of round, great for round and oval faces.

 

#4. Curly Weave Bob

One of our favorite curly hair bob haircuts. A weave for curly hair will take the work out of adding curls. Get ready to wake up with textured hair minus the frizz. You’ll only need to part the hair in the middle or side to be ready for the day.

 

#5. Curly Bob for Woman Over 50

Fall in love with your hair all over again when you see how great it looks as a curly bob. Create short layers up top for height and texture. A rich red or another color will make curls look more luscious.

 

#6. Inverted Bob for Curly Hair

Inverted bobs bring the focus to the back of the hairstyle. Your springy curls will be the envy of everyone with the way this style has long locks framing the face.

 

#7. Stacked Curly Bob

Stacked bobs also focus on layering above the nape of the neck. While there are longer sections of hair near the face, you can cut a few shorter pieces to create curtain bangs.

 

#8. Curly A-Line Bob

An A-line bob with straight bangs is a very girl-next-door hairstyle. A-line bobs look great on any face shape but will definitely appeal to women with large foreheads who wish to cover them up.

 

#9. Thick Curly Hair Bob

To add height to a thick curly bob, layers should be added. The shorter they are up top, the more volume will be added. Short bangs above eyes round out the style.

 

#10. Bob Cut for Thin Curls

Thin curls are luckily very easy to style. They won’t need many layers because hair isn’t thick, however, a bob with a choppy cut on the bottom will assist with shape. To create a side bang long enough to pin back, focus layers near the front.

 

#11. Sew in Curly Bob

In the process of growing your hair out? A sew-in bob is your ticket to a gorgeous curly bob that will last for several weeks. These soft curls are serene and compatible for both office or home.

 

#12. Curly Undercut Bob

The short layers at the top of a curly bob show off beautifully highlighted curls. A small shaved area near the face makes for cool detail. Add two shaved lines or another design to make it edgy.

 

#13. 3b Curly Hair Bob

3b Curly Hair Bob

3b curls are spiral-shaped and bouncy. Since your curls won’t need any help with volume, you can instead help their shape with a shoulder-length bob. Mousse and leave-in conditioners will control any frizz.

 

#14. Middle Part Curly Bob

Middle Part Curly Bob

Center parts create symmetry on round faces. Layers that start close to the forehead will fall beautifully along the sides of the face so you can feel comfortable wearing your curly bob down.

 

#15. Curly Pixie Bob

Be bold and try a pixie bob whose locks are only a couple of inches long all over. Fringe is minimal if any but you can straighten it to easily create some. This is one low-maintenance hairstyle.

 

#16. Blonde Curly Bob 

Blonde Curly Bob 

Take your bob back to the 70s with blonde color and messy curls all over; long bangs can be worn over the forehead or pinned back. The key to this hairstyle is avoiding making it too neat.

 

#17. Swing Bob on Curly Hair

Older women will appreciate how a swing bob takes grey curly hair and makes it look youthful. Lots of teasing and layering at the crown and back creates a fun shape you can style simply with fingers.

 

#18. Full and Rounded Curly Bob

Full Round curly bob hair

Straightened, this curly hair bob might look like a pageboy with bangs, perhaps with a few layers. That’s why bobs are different when you have curls. The full roundness almost belies the bob tag altogether, but within all this lovely lushness, there’s definitely a bob.

Layered Curly Hair Styles for Women

 

#19. Curly Bob With Waves

A long curly bob will pull some of the shapes out of your curls. The extra weight stretches the spirals and creates waves in their place. A shoulder-length bob thus results in a head full of messy, tousled waves and random curls. Do you love it?

 

#20. Short Curly Bob

You might not think you can classify a haircut this short as a bob, but you can. It’s an extreme variation, but extremism is appealing for a reason. The spirals are longer in the front and get much shorter toward the back, where they layer over a shorter undercut.

 

#21. Curly Bob for Black Hair

Afro Bob with curl hairstyle

We love this simple short bob cut for black hair. While giving your hair a rest—and nourishing and pampering it in the interim, of course—you can still splash out with a fun, flattering coiffure. I adore the curls in this Afro bob and the inverted angle that makes it longer in the back.

Spiral Perm vs Regular Perm

 

#22. Spirals

The retro edge in this hairstyle is sustaining me. This whole look makes me think of San Junipero. What you see here is what you get when you nurture and celebrate your curls rather than straightening them into oblivion. Give them space to be themselves.

 

#23. Short Curly Bob With Blunt Bangs

The bangs are blunt, the bob itself is blunt, and the timeless stylishness of this cut is blunt, too—it’s all up in your face. A coif like this genuinely never goes out of style. You can see variations of it all throughout the 20th century. You can also try curly bob with bangs styles.

 

#24. Curly Angled Bob

Angled bobs are my favorite, and curly bobs with an angle are just as edgy as their straighter counterparts. The line from front to back is subtler, sure, but it’s unmistakable. Check out how shiny her hair is, too. Totally crushing.
