21 Eye-catching A-line Bob Hairstyles

Today we present 21 eye-catching A-line bob hairstyles.A bob hairstyle, of course, is a short hairstyle featuring a haircut straight around the head at about jaw-level. And an A-line bob hairstyle is a bob cut with the hair shorter in the back becoming gradually longer toward the front.

The bob re-emerged as a popular hairstyle again in the 1960’s when it was adopted by famous hairstylists such as Vidal Sassoon.Today we find many celebrities sporting bob cuts, including stars such as Victoria Beckham, Rihanna, Katie Holmes, Julianne Hough as well as Frankie Sandford and Taylor Swift.  And of course the asymmetrical bob is not just for celebrities. Many gorgeous non-celebrity ladies are also showcasing this style as we displayed a few weeks ago in 21 Adorable Asymmetrical Bob Hairstyles for 2016.
Being that bobs are so popular, we wouldn’t be surprised in the least if it were a hairstyle that you’ve either already had before or one that you’re considering getting. But if you’re currently looking for a new look and you’re not sure if a bob is best, hear us out for a sec.One thing that’s awesome about bobs is they are super easy to maintain (definitely a perk).
Another thing that’s great about bobs is they transcend age demographics. A woman of any age will be stunning with one. And then if you go with an A-line bob (the kind that’s also known as an inverted bob), you can have a style that is clean and modern.Have we convinced you to try a bob (again) yet?If not, check these pictures out…we’re sure that you will.

This picture comes right under the red one because it basically shows you what the same cut would look like if you dyed it blonde. Platinum blonde, that is.

2. A-line bob with side part

This A-line bob basically shows you what your hair will look like if you put a side part into it.

3. Straight A-line lob

As you can see in the “before” picture, this model’s hair was initially naturally wavy. After cutting it into an A-line lob, her stylist blow dried it straight. And here are the results. Beautiful!

4. A-line bob with honey highlights

One of the best things about this particular inverted bob is the fact that it has honey highlights all throughout it.

5. Air-dried A-line bob

Messy bob cut: One hair trend that’s big right now that’s actually really good for your hair is “air-dried”. Yep. All you have to do is get out of the shower, dry it (really well) with a towel and you’re good to go! Plus, your hair will not be damaged by the heat.

6. A-line bob with chunks of a lighter color

When you have your hair colored with chunks that are a few shades from your natural shade, it has a way of still looking like you were born with them. Even if you weren’t.

7. A-line bob with tapered neckline and bangs

There are basically two things that makes this A-line bob stand out: the darker tapered neckline and the blunt bangs. (We really like how the neckline is darker than the rest of the hair for added depth!)

8. Brunette A-line lob

If you’ve been hesitant to go with a bob or lob because you feel like your hair is too thin, that’s no reason to deny yourself of one! As you can see, even if your tresses are on the thin side, you can still look pretty amazing. (And remember that if you want some thickness, you can add a few weave tracks!)

10. Platinum A-line lob (with a middle part)

Sometimes what can make an inverted bob more dramatic is if the front is considerably longer. This one has front pieces that gently grace her collarbone. (If you love this cut, you may like these blunt bob cuts.)

Long straight bob hairstyle for women: Here’s a nice twist to how to add highlights to your hair. Rather than going with a neutral hue, try something like deep blue (or even dark green).

19. A-line bob with natural roots

Natural roots are in. That’s a good thing too because if you prefer to color your hair a light shade such as light blonde, too much processing can do a real number on it. These days, though, when someone tells you “Your roots are showing”, you can simply fling your A-line hair and say “Thank you.”
