We know that bobs are the latest trends in haircuts and ombre hasn’t showed any signs of going anywhere anytime soon. It’s natural that our love affairs for shorter hair and ombre colors have transformed into a dynamic and happy partnership in bold hairstyles.
It’s pretty well known by now that ombre looks best when it’s styled with curls or relaxed waves. It gives it that dimension that the color definitely needs. However, short ombre hair looks great with every hair type and a wide variety of styles. Here are some of our favorite short ombre hairstyle ideas.
Straight Ombre Hair with Center Part
Let’s start with a sweet and simple cut that works for just about everyone. A long bob with ombre is a super simple look that doesn’t require lots of maintenance or styling time but it looks chic. The straight texture and length works for every face shape but if you have a round or long face shape, opt for a side part rather than the center.
Face Framing Asymmetrical Ombre Bob
Framing your face is the best way to emphasize all your best features and hide any insecurity. An asymmetrical cut allows you to have the bob, the framing cut and adds dimension and movement to your ombre hair color. It works great with every texture and with blunt or side-swept bangs.
Choppy Chin-Length Bob with Side-Swept Bangs
If you’re looking for an edgy ombre look then this is a great option. Razor cuts give your hair a soft style while adding texture and shape to your tresses. It’s great for women with straight or wavy hairstyles and wants a bob with some layers. It will display the ombre perfectly while giving your hair an edgy and voluminous look. If you don’t want a cut as harsh as the razor cut but still want the benefits, check out the Twist and Shout Razor haircutting method.
Wavy Ombre Lob
The favorite way to wear the ombre bob is with a length that is just above the shoulders (long bob = lob) with those charming boho waves. Since the shorter length is easier to style, it’s not a problem to recreate this look day in and day out. But you have the length and cool color to style it half-up, straight or pulled back. There’s no question why this is a favorite look of so many celebs, fashionistas and ladies who aren’t afraid to try the hot new look. Best of all, it’s perfect for every face shape. Just make sure you choose the right part and if you opt for layers, consider where they fall for your face shape.
Ombre Bob with Red
Blondes don’t get to have all the ombre fun. There are plenty of great ombre colors out there. We particularly like an ombre to red for this fall season. And it’s a trend that’s heating up quick. Before you opt for a red hair color, remember that like blonde, red washes out fast and you should check with your stylist if he/she thinks red is right for your skins undertones.
