Some flattering short bob hairstyles for women include lengths that graze the jaw line and lengths that lay closer to the collarbone. Bobs take on many shapes and textures with the addition of bangs and layers.
Bobs look polished when they are all one length and have little to no layering. For a modern and fun look, a bob can be inverted (shorter in the back and longer in the front) and layered to "stack" in the back. Layers help enhance curly and wavy hair textures, and they work well on straighter hair to add volume. Bangs are another way to add dimension to both long and short bobs.
