Keep your layers long in the front, making the appearance of a bob hairstyle. Then, chop the back and make it spiky or voluminous!  Style the layers forward and create an angled look that increases the edginess.

If your hair doesn’t do volume, keep it straight down and nearly the same length all around for a great, clean look. The more clean the cut, the more simple it is to maintain, and the more striking the appearance.


4. Not-So-Straight Lob

The asymmetrical look is all the rage, so make sure to rock it! Keep an angle to your cut so one side falls to your ear or chin, and the other side down to your shoulder. This look works well whether you have a thick, blunt cut or a more fine-trimmed, razored edge.


5. Two-Toned Trim

Keep the underside of your hair a darker shade, like brown, and use your wedge hairstyle to add other colors on top! The lighter the top layers, the bolder the statement. Use highlights or full coloring, whichever you prefer.


6. Thick n’ Stacked

One of the best parts of the wedge hairstyle is its versatility. You can smooth it back for a more sophisticated look, and flatten it based on your style needs. You can also use clips for a bouffant type “bump,” or just slick it back for an edgy, professional look.


13. Messy Mass

If calm hair isn’t your thing, curl it, spray it, and let it go! Long layers in front and short layers in back work best for having a slightly electrified look. You can also just wet your hair, spray, and go! This is the epitome of lazy lovely hair.


14. Long Strand Layers

Add an extra zing to your look, with short layers in the back, long straight layers in the front, and leave a small chunk of strands up front longer than all the rest. This streamlined look will look even edgier if you dye the strands a lighter or darker color than the rest of your hair.


15. Short All Around
