The inverted bob haircut is shorter in the back and longer in the front. The cut is graduated so that the difference in length flows in an angled style.
Other names for the inverted bob hairstyle include "the A-line cut" and "the graduated bob." Although the main feature of the inverted bob is the graduation from short in back to longer in front, variations of the hairstyle allow for wearers to also have bangs, fringe or layers on top of the base bob. The main benefit of the hairstyle, aside from aesthetic pleasure, is increased movement of the hair, which makes it easy to maintain and style.
