Inverted bobs are also known as a graduated bob, this is the style that is shorter in the back and longer at the front and on the sides. It is generally more rounded than the A-line bob and has some sort of layer stacking in the back. For a short simple hairstyle, the inverted bob comes in a lot of variations. The cut, texture, and length are all up to your personal choice. All bob haircuts vary in length but for this post we want to focus on a selection of short inverted bob haircuts options.
A Short Stacked Bob
The stacked bob was most famously worn by Victoria Beckham. Her bob has changed over the years but she always had the inverted line and often experimented with lots of layers and even spiked looks.
Lightly Layered Inverted Bob
The short inverted bob doesn’t have to be defined by a lot of stacked layers. Subtle layering is great for women with fine hair and don’t want to lose too much on choppy layers.
Inverted and Asymmetrical Short Bob
You don’t have to choose a Asymmetrical or inverted bob – you can mix them together for a modern hairstyle. Your hair should get longer as it moves forward and one side will be longer than the other. Check out Rihanna’s asymmetrical-inverted bob hairstyle for some inspiration.
The Wedge Inverted Bob
The wedge haircut is essentially an inverted bob. The hairstyle was made famous in the 70’s by Olympics figure skater, Dorothy Hamillbut. Since then has evolved into a modern and chic haircut.
Short Inverted Bob with Long Forward Hair
Another option is to leave the front and top of your hair significantly longer than the back. This will create a more edgy hairstyle but also give you more styling options with the longer hair in the front.
Short Inverted Bob with Bangs
Last but definitely not least, where would bobs be without bangs? Bangs really compliment a bob hairstyle effortlessly. An inverted bob looks great with blunt bangs, side-swept bangs, wispy bangs or layered bangs. The choice should depend on your hairs texture and your face shape.
