31. Straight Hair in a Rounded Bob. This girl has a strong jawline, and we know that few styles can soften square and rectangular faces better than rounded bobs. Moreover, this chin-length cut comes with a diagonal line in the front to further break the squareness.

35. Honey Highlights and Textured Ends. You may not believe it, but this effortless bob cut is actually one-length, although it doesn’t look blunt at all due to the disconnected ends. Also, note how the honey blonde highlights let the olive skin glow!

36. Modern Stacked Bob. Show off your stacked layers with a side-parted bob cut bringing volume and body to straight hair.

37. Chin-Length Layered Bob. Incorporate layers to your bob cut to eliminate that stiff appearance and add movement to your hair. Elevating the layers at the back and keeping the front longer would help to frame the shape of your face and make it look slimmer.

38. Short Sun-Kissed Bob with Deep Bangs. If you are not sure how to style a bob with bangs but want to take the plunge, a fringe like this is a safe choice since you can wear it straight or part it in the middle.

45. Long Bob Hairstyle with Dramatic Graduation. This eye-catching style takes the shape of an A-line bob, adds the back layers of a stacked bob, complements the formula with a swoopy side fringe, and extends the cut to a shoulder length.
