29 Inverted Bobs For Rocking A Short Haircut

A bob haircut is a short to medium length haircut for women. The hair is typically cut straight around the head at about jaw-level, and often comes with bangs at the front. It was Jennifer Aniston who popularized the bob in her role as Rachel Green.

But because the bob is such a classic and simple hairstyle, women often look for ways to tweak it. One of those tweaks is the inverted bob. Basically, you have short back and long front. And unlike the standard bob haircut, the inverted bob features a tapered back with stacked layers.
