1. Undercut But Not Underrated


Undercut But Not Underrated

Undercuts are very trendy this year. You can really add a playful edge with the right undercut. They work with every length of hair and they are easy to style, as well. Simply add an anti-frizz serum to your wet hair and blow dry. Then mess your hair up slightly using a sea salt spray. It’s that easy! And the fun thing about an undercut is that if you leave it longer, you still have the option to pull your hair up. However, you do need to maintain the undercut, so you’ll need to get your hair trimmed every few weeks, but this fun look is worth the effort!

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. No, they’re not. Razors are a girl’s best friend! That’s because a hairstylist uses one to create undercuts and undershaves. In an undercut, the hairstylist shaves off a portion of hair from either side, both sides, and/or the nape of the neck. The hairstylist will also often preserve a long portion of hair for fashion versatility. In an undershave, the hairstylist shaves off all the hair from either side, both sides, and/or the nape of the neck all the way up to the scalp. The model in the upper right photo displays an asymmetrical bob with undershave. It always looks super cool and hip and in all likelihood always feels that way. The model in other two photos wears an asymmetrical bob with undercut. The undercut lies beneath one of her sides, so you only see an asymmetrical bob from the back view. We’ll just have to wait until she ties up or pulls back at least one of those cool tapered sides to see it. Oh well.

Pink-Grey Layered Asymmetrical Bob #bobhaircut #asymmetricalbob #layeredhair

An unevenly layered asymmetrical bob needs mussing.

Notice how her barely noticeable, wispy side bangs draw you to her striking eyes and lips and how they also add volume to the rest of her hair. And, that pink and gray hair color. Pink and gray are actually one of the most calming color combinations. Not on her, though. She excites pink and gray. She rocks those colors! To the max!

Shaggy Style For A Medium Asymmetrical Bob #bobhaircut #asymmetricalbob #layeredbob

Did you like coloring when you were a kid? If so, didn’t you just love getting a brand new box of crayons? Wasn’t picking out your favorite colors grand? We need color in our lives. We need to enjoy it, experiment with it, and let it light up our lives. So, keep on playing with it. Better yet, ask your hairstylist to put it in your medium asymmetrical bob. Better yet, have your hairstylist use muted pink rose balayage. Why? Because a strawberry blonde asymmetrical blonde bob literally turns heads. And, asymmetrical haircuts practically cry out for strawberry blonde. It adds fiery passion, but softness, too. Notice the slight tinge of strawberry blonde in this model’s bob. It’s the perfect accent for casual asymmetrical haircuts like hers and for those who want subtle effects, rather than dramatic ones.

30. Asymmetrical Short Bob With Bangs

Asymmetrical Short Bob With Bangs #bobhaircut #shortbob #sidepart #silverhair

An asymmetrical short bob with bangs and an elongated side that falls under the jawline will forever compliment. The stacked angle bob this model sports is especially flattering for those with round faces and those with extra layers of skin around their necks (often called “double chins”). The term “double chin” carries a negative implication and, truth be told, it’s misleading to think that overeating always causes them. Oftentimes, the natural aging process simply weakens facial muscles and skin. Facial exercise can help. And so can asymmetrical hair. An asymmetrical bob balances double chins. All you see on this model is her sweet, heart-shaped face and that’s all you’re ever going to see. She also superbly wound in the current gray trend. She selected sophisticated hues of pewter and icy silver that would normally bring to mind approaching storms. But her bright pink lipstick calmed the skies and her delicate charm blazes through. Don’t you wonder what she’s thinking?

31. Weave Bob Hairstyles With Side Part

Weave Bob Hairstyles With Side Part #asymmetricalbob #lob #bobhaircut #weavehair

Weaves are great for those who aren’t sure they like a certain style or whose hair isn’t yet long enough to get the cut. Weaves are strips of synthetic or natural hair that an individual, friend, or a hairstylist either glues, sews, or clips onto the natural hair. There are many textures and styles from which to choose, including an asymmetrical bob weave. Suppose, too, you’ve admired the long angled bob but were hesitant to make the commitment. You could use a natural cut or a weave bob hairstyle with side part to simulate it whenever you wanted. See this model’s hair? All you have to do is wear one side forward and then fold the other side back behind your ear (use bobby pins, should you need). And, there you have it: a splendid, beautiful bob. And, within seconds, you can once again be chic and casual. Yes, the asymmetrical bob can make you the modern day Cinderella.

34. Shaggy Layered Asymmetrical Bob

Shaggy Layered Asymmetrical Bob #bobhaircut #shortbob #asymmetricalbob #braidedbob

Uneven cuts work with so many hairstyles, even the lively and funky shag. The hairstylist must, however, absolutely nail the shaggy layered asymmetrical bob with lots of choppy layers that commence from the crown and change over into bangs. The style is extremely rewarding and attractive and so easy to manage. For those wondering how to style an asymmetrical bob, all you need to do is use a texturizing product, such as sea salt spray, which will bring out the shag’s delicate, yet delightful disheveled appearance. Though full of layers, she can still work a pretty braid through her crown. Braids are so versatile and multipurpose. They create curls; add romance, charm, and tradition to formal outfits; a bohemian touch to casual styles; and, are just a cute way to get your hair off your face.

35. Long Bob For Sleek Black Hair

Long Bob For Sleek Black Hair #longbob #bobhaircut #sleekhair #straighthair

Once you decide upon a bob, which is very smart, you then have to determine which one. That’s so hard. There are so many great ones. The inverted bob is an excellent choice. It’s timeless and always complimenting. Essentially, the hairstylist layers the back and then graduates the front pieces into longer, curved sections that angle toward the front. A long inverted bob, as its name implies, is longer and usually doesn’t have the short-stacked section in the back. The front sections remain the same. An asymmetrical long bob, like the model is wearing, has unequal sides. As you can see, an asymmetrical bob on black hair is utterly spectacular. It’s so shiny, smooth, dramatic and oh so sexy. A casting director might take one look at her and cast her as the seductress in an upcoming movie.
