The perfectly straight fringe adds an edge to the girly look and makes sure that the final outcome is a mix of sweet and sharp.

Messy chocolate brown curls look particularly stunning on medium bob haircuts that just cover the ears. This hairstyle is a beautiful combination of texture and volume and will surely make heads turn.
#28 Sandy Blonde Diva

Some gentle teasing at the crown also helps with adding volume which is further exaggerated by the bangs flipped to one side.
#29 Swirly Bob
Contrary to popular belief, short haircuts don't have to be boring and there are plenty of styling options to play around with. Adding a few curls that run throughout the length of the hair will upgrade the look completely. This would look great on a brown or blonde bob because these shades create a cascading effect with the curls.
#30 Razor Sharp
These days, haircuts are all about sharp angles and geometrical patterns. Medium bob haircuts have also followed this route and the latest trend is sleek straight hair that ends abruptly in a razor sharp boundary. This hairstyle has a high-end appeal to it when coupled with dark hair that makes the edge stand out even more.
#31 Tropical Paradise

#34 Layered Caramel Bob
Adding a few layers to medium bob haircuts can help create a messy, bedhead-inspired hairdo that looks extremely stylish. This caramel bob is a fine example of how to look like a goddess with tousled hair. A texturising spray would be your best friend to keep refreshing the waves throughout the day.
#35 Inky Black Curls
Inky shades of black and blue possess a dazzling shine that looks glorious on big curls. Use a thick barrel to create uniform curls throughout the hair, due to the short length of the bob cut this will not take much time. Bob cuts are the most cooperative when it comes to curling the hair and the end result looks so fantastic and put together!
#36 Flick Away

This combination of straight and ruffled hair is the perfect balance of sleek and casual that is suitable for any occasion. This hairstyle looks very elegant on black hair.
#38 Flowing Angled Bob
Another method of creating an angelic look with an angled bob is to leave the hair at the front slightly longer so that they flow over your shoulders. Caramel and brown tones provide a very refined look with this haircut. You can leave your hair down or even add a few braids at the front for formal events.
#39 Smoky Bob
Add a smoky effect to the bob with a gradual transition from a dark brown at the roots to a dull gray right at the tips. This color transition will be more visible on shorter bob cuts as compared to longer hair. This hairstyle has an artistic appeal to it without being too loud.
#40 Feathery Green
A sleek black bob with a dark shade of green at the tips resembles the beautiful plumage of a bird. This is ideal for symmetrical bob cuts with a slight inward flick and a long fringe. Go for an emerald green for a rich effect or an olive green for a more carefree, rustic vibe.
#41 Persian Blue Highlights
Persian blue highlights are a whimsical addition to a black bob. The bright blue color is slightly toned down by the black so that this look is subdued as compared to blue highlights on light hair. Keep your makeup simple with this hairstyle and go for cool shades in your outfits.
#42 Mahogany Brown Ripples
It takes only a couple of minutes to create this ripple effect on medium bob haircuts. Generate loose waves with thin strands of hair and spritz them with hairspray to make them hold all day long. The rich mahogany color will look mesmerizing with warm colored makeup and jewel-toned outfits.
#43 Pretty and Playful
A deep brown and gold balayage is the right choice for the warm months. Create an effortless hairdo by teasing the hair with your fingers and adding a few curls. This look is playful enough for the daytime but is also suitable for evening events if paired with the right outfit.
