12 Stately Short Layered Bob Hairstyles

Have you been looking for a way to add volume to your hairstyle? Short layered bobs will soon be your favorite look! They feature the traditional look of a bob – short hair in back, long hair in front – but with short layers all over that provide movement and body.

However, you should remember that if you have a larger head shape, a short bob may accentuate that so you’ll want a longer hairstyle. These styles do better with women with smaller faces. Hair stays healthy longer and has an overall neater appearance. Pair it with a bit of color, whether it’s ombre, highlights, or an all over treatment, and you’ve got a fashionable new look.
