27 Asymmetrical Bob For A Classy Off-Balanced Look

The bob is one of the classic looks every woman tries once in her lifetime. There are many variations and sub-variations of the bob.

In general, a bob is a short to medium length haircut in which the hair is typically cut straight around the head at about jaw-level, with a fringe or bangs at the front.

But because the bob can get boring, like every other hairstyle, women are looking for new ways to use it. Enter the asymmetrical bob, a hairstyle that is shorter in length and cut into an uneven bob. One side is longer, and it serves as a great way to add some flavor to the classic bob.

The asymmetrical bob goes above the standard look, it is more fun, and it gives you something new to play with.

With that in mind, here are a couple of ideas of asymmetrical bob hairstyles you can try.

Some say the off-balance is a new balance. And that is definitely true with this hairstyle. What looks like out of balance, is actually in perfect harmony.

Do you want to take the asymmetrical bob to the next level? Do it with colors. Given that both sides are different in length, they can be different in color as well. And go with contrast colors. One that pops, and another that calms down.

3. Ombre Pink Wavy Straight Cut Bob

Speaking of colors, ombre is another technique you just have to try. After all, ombre was the “it” trend a couple of years ago, and it is still standing. Wavy bobs are the best way to emphasize hair colors.
