1. The Classic A-Line Bob Haircut
Even though we have tons of cool and creative ideas to show you, let’s begin with the classic A-line bob. This has a short back and longer front sides that descend into sharp angles toward your shoulders.
2. Long A-Line Bob
This is a long and disconnected A-line bob with beach waves and caramel highlights. It’s a great color for the fall and a perfect, simple look for the office or for school. It’s a traditional choice that you cannot go wrong with.
3. Blonde A-Line Bob Hairstyle
More than just a blonde bob, this is a glossy blonde bob cut with jagged ends that has a very edgy and rock’n’roll vibe to it. You can start with a darker, caramel brown base that will play nicely off the shiny blonde.
4. Skinny and Sleek A-Line Bob
This type of bob is perfect for women with thin hair. The volume in the back will create an optical illusion to make it look like you have more hair than you do. It’s also a great alternative for ladies with fine hair.
5. Layered A-Line Bob Cut
Contrary to popular belief, not all A-line bobs are layered. But this gorgeous example is. It’s a platinum blonde haircut with plenty of layers to go around as well as choppy ends that make it look stylish and bold.
6. Vanilla A-Line Bob Style
Speaking of platinum, extreme blondes were and continue being a statement color. With that idea in mind, you can also try this vanilla blonde, named thusly after the ice cream. It’s a creamy and delicious color that will highlight your skin tone.
7. Ombre Bob Hair Style Ideas
Ombre was a major trend around the middle of the 2010s, but women all around the world are still wearing it. Therefore, you can go for it as well if you’re feeling a little nostalgic but don’t forget to add a modern touch by starting from dark roots and ending with very light tips.
8. Asymmetrical A-Line Bob Haircuts
You can create asymmetry only on one side if you part your hair on the left or the right. On the other hand, if you want the classic type of A-line bob, you can part your hair down the middle.

Pull up the top part of your bob and braid it in a loose fishtail or French braid. It’s a very easy way to update your everyday look and make it seem as if you have your own personal stylist.

13. Double Thin Side Braids
Side braids are also called warrior braids and usually come in pairs of two or three. They are parallel and only adorn one side of the head. If you get them on both sides or on the top of your head as well, then you might as well cross into the cornrows realm too.
