If you want a long bob haircut, you can add some funky layers and highlight to mix it up a bit. There is no end to the possibilities with a stylish bob haircut. If you have fine hair, you can ask for a slightly more blunt finish at the ends as this will make your hair appear thicker and fuller while adding more movement.
1. Soft A-line Bob Haircut

This cut is ideal if you have long chunky layers and want to go for a simpler, softer look that will save you a great deal of time and effort. If you simply bring up the overall length so that your bottom layers were closer to your shortest layer, it would give the look of a stronger perimeter line. It may seem a bit drastic, but you can still easily pull off that carefree, bed head look with little to no effort and barely any product. To achieve this look, ask your stylist to chop off the longest layers and keep the shorter layers which will leave for a low-shock value if you are not going for a drastic change. It will frame your face softly and you won’t be stuck with a “mullet” style hairdo that is often the result of longer, heavy layers.
2. Blunt Sharp Bob Haircut

If your hair is all one length with only a few layers that frame your face, you can easily transition to this sharp, blunt bob haircut. The length of this style will perfectly frame your face without a lot of layers and still give you the thicker and fuller look of the one-length hairstyle. You should get your hair cut just past your collar bone and leave a little more length in the front which will give you enough length for an elegant updo.
3. Blunt Bob with a Strong Fringe

This look works great for either straight or curly hair and ideal for sleek, shiny hair, as it is very striking and sophisticated. This style is beautiful and dramatic and the bangs will add that mysterious longer-hair quality that you prefer. The amount of effort you will need to pull off this look depends on your particular hair texture. However, this look is glamorous and requires little time and effort. Its advantage is that it can be played up for a special event.

If you are still weary of cutting your hair shorter, then you can opt for a classic bob as it is extremely versatile and can be styled in a variety of ways while still having a fresh, modern look. The best part about this style is that you will be able to easily pull your hair into a bun or ponytail as well as an elegant updo for any occasion. Also, with the longer layers, it will be much easier to grow out your hair. Lighter layers will help add some natural waves to your hair, which will make it easier to air dry while also adding texture for more volume and movement.
