50 Incredible Short Bob Hairstyles & Haircuts With Bangs

While long hair has its own romantic beauty, there is something undeniably adorable yet edgy about short hairstyles with bangs. Often, for women, it’s tough to take the plunge and cut out hair short because it feels masculinizing – however, there is nothing more feminine than girlish straight across bangs. Cute pixie cuts or short bob hairstyles with bangs are a great way to take off a heavy weight of hair off your shoulders, while still keeping things stylish. In this post I’ll show you some of the best pictures of short bob hairstyles with bangs, but first here are some things to keep in mind.

How to Choose Short Haircuts with Bangs

Switching to short hairstyles with bangs can be a great way to completely change up your look. Different kinds of bangs can have a big impact on the shape of your face, and as long as you choose the right kind of bangs for your face shape, they will be very flattering. You have a few fringe options:

Straight Across Bangs

Straight across bangs are the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of hairstyles with bangs. They remind us of Bettie Page, or Vidal Sassoon’s 5-point haircut – stylish, feminine, and a little retro. There are some things you should keep in mind, before getting short hairstyles with bangs like these:

• They look best on oval, rectangular, and diamond shaped faces, or in other words, medium and long faces.

• They will make round or square face shapes look more square.

• They are a great trick to hiding a large forehead.

• They require frequent salon visits, lest they start impeding your vision.

Variations include: peekaboo bangs and asymmetrical bangs.

Side-Swept Bangs

Side-swept bangs don’t quite convey the same powerful effect as straight across bangs, but they are an excellent choice for those wanting to try short haircuts with bangs for the following reasons:

• Side-swept bangs will flatter almost any face shape.

• They allow for very versatile hair styling. You can sweep them into either direction, or pin them back nicely.

• As they start to grow out, they blend easily into the rest of the hair without causing an annoying “grow out” stage.

Wispy Bangs

Wispy bangs are a very popular hair cutting choice, nowadays. They are a much softer version of the straight across bangs. They are much less in your face than straight across bangs (quite literally), but they still frame the face nicely. Here are some reasons to consider short haircuts with bangs on the wispy side:

• They give the same femininity as straight across bangs.

• They are a very modern take on the bangs.

• They can hide a high forehead, but without making the face appear too short.

• In fact, they are excellent for most face shapes.

Baby Bangs

Baby bangs are the look for anyone who really wants to stand out. Depending on the hair color and styling, they might seem more rockabilly, high fashion, punk, or retro-futuristic. Here are some things to keep in mind about them:

• For most people, they are not very flattering.

• They definitely show bravery and a unique style.

How Short Should You Go?

Pixie

Let me be the devil in your ear, who asks, “what are you afraid of?” Short pixie hairstyles with bangs are actually ultra cute and feminine, and fantastic for summer time. Do you get headaches a lot? A pixie haircut will totally fix it. In my opinion, everyone looks good with a pixie haircut no matter their face shape, but if you’re nervous, leave your fringe longer and sweep it to the side, and it’ll frame your face in a very flattering way.

Bob

I didn’t manage to talk you into the pixie? Well, a bob is also an excellent choice. If you keep bob hairstyles with bangs curled, they’ll be lovely and soft, but you can also straighten them for that high-fashion takes on prisoners, Anna Wintour look.

Long Bob/ Lob

It’s undeniable that long bobs have been super popular in the past few years. They require fewer salons visits than the pixie and the bob hairstyles, and they’re definitely the safest choice for anyone who is feeling nervous. For a bit of a ‘70s vibe, pair them with straight across bangs, or stick to side bangs for a more modern look.

There is a definite ‘90s punk vibe to this haircut. The platinum locks are curled in a spiky way that shows off the grungy dark roots really well. This is a fine example of short haircuts with bangs.

Short bob haircuts can go really well with accessories, like this gorgeous quartz crown. The short, straight across bangs, granny silver hair color, and textured straight hair bypass all the trends and create something unique and completely stylish.

28. Midnight Balayage with Uneven Bangs

If you really want to play with conventions, consider getting a little messy with the scissors. As long as your black blue balayage, makeup, and top bun are as on point as in this long bob, you could probably get away with it.

29. Messy Auburn and Pink Bob

I love messy, piecey short hairstyles that look like you just rolled out of bed. The streaks through the bangs, which were cut to look a little wispy, give the whole look a lot of brightness and lightness. The pale pink streaks through the auburn also deserve a mention.

30. Black and Silver Ombre Long Bob

The effect when ombre short hairstyles with bangs keep the bangs one color, and dye most of the rest of the hair, the result is really striking. Thanks to the straight lines and the contrast between the black silver, this look is doubly striking.

31. Granny Curls and Bangs

Silver hair is the hair color trend of the year, and pairing it with short bob haircuts with bangs is a super fun way of combining a really young style with a more mature color. By keeping the roots darker you can keep your hair healthy, and not worry too much about maintenance.

32. Ash Brown Curls and Side-Swept Curls

This ash blonde and brown balayage is oh-so-subtle, and the piecey curls are fun yet sexy. I love short hairstyles with bangs that incorporate the side-swept curly bangs into the rest of the hair.

33. Sun-Kissed Long Bob

Dark tresses were accented with just a touch of copper and blonde, making for a really lovely contrast. The messy long bob with bangs that are kept feathered is fresh and summery, to go with the bright color contrast.

34. Purple Rain Braid and Bangs

35. Punk Rock Copper Balayage Long Bob

This super textured balayage shows that bangs can have a serious edge. Razor cutting the ends of short haircuts with bangs swept to the side is super stylish, especially when paired with such a clean and healthy looking color.

36. Textured Autumn Bob

This soft brown and caramel balayage complements these lush, textured bangs, giving the hair a warm feel that’s completely appropriate for fall. The beautiful curls look as though they’ve been slightly mussed by the wind.

37. Ocean Queen Silver Green Bob

Setting aside the gorgeous shell crown for a moment, this is a badass example of short bob haircuts with bangs. The baby bangs are hard to pull off, but if you have the face for them, they’ll keep your image sharp in everyone’s mind, especially when paired with such an extraordinary color.

38. Sakura Slanted Bob

This straightened, subtly slanted bob with straight across bangs is a classic look. It’s a little bit editorial, but still adorable – especially when paired with such a gorgeous blend of pink and dark brown hair colors.

39. Forest Green Punk Balayage

Short haircuts with bangs go super well with punk hair colors and styling. Smoky and lime green contrast in a way that is very messy and grunge, especially when the styling and the side-swept bangs are also stylishly messy.

40. Neon Sunset Rockabilly Bob

Usually, my first thought when I see bob hairstyles with bangs is “rockabilly”, and this look certainly fits the bill, despite the extreme colors. Speaking of, orange and purple is one of my favorite color combinations, since it reminds me of the sunset. If you want to break the mold, try this hairstyle out; just remember the maintenance will be intense.

41. Thick & Textured Side-Swept Bangs

I gotta admit something – while we’ve seen a lot of short haircuts with bangs so far, some more on the girly side, and others more edgy and mature, this one is my favorite because it manages to strike the perfect balance. The blonde and caramel highlights, and textured waves look lush and touchable, and the length of the hair and side-swept bangs are sure to flatter almost any face shape.

42. Bombshell Blown Out Bob

The verdict is in: red is the sexiest hair color. This voluminous long bob proves that even straight across bangs, when paired with the right shade of dye, a teasing comb and a blow dryer, can look smolderingly hot.

43. Raspberry Swirl Bob

The great thing about short hairstyles is that sometimes a touch of texturizing spray and a rapid shake of the head are all you need to look effortlessly messy. A great layered bob, expertly dyed with warm shades of red and orange, also makes everything easier.

44. Vivid Sunset Layered Balayage

Allowing just a touch of vivid colors run through the ends of the hair is a great way of playing with unusual colors, while keeping most of the hair natural. I also totally love these longer, layered side-swept bangs that go oh-so-well with this asymmetrical long bob.

45. Rose Gold Swirl

This rose gold textured bob keeps the roots darker for easy maintenance. The side-swept bangs and gentle waves are ultra flattering, for any face shape.

46. A Touch of Pumpkin Spice Bob

Running some orange strands through an otherwise blonde textured bob is a great way of getting short hairstyles with bangs ready for autumn. You can achieve this kind of piecey curls with a thin curling iron.

47. Painted Fire Long Bob

This layered long bob is on fire! Bright orange streaks offset by natural dark roots keep things bright and playful, but sleek side-swept bangs and classy layers make this haircut wearable by anyone.

@shelleygregoryhair

48. Redhead Pixie Bob

Short hairstyles with bangs can be extremely feminine, even more so than some long haircuts, if styled the right way. By keeping the straight across bangs just above the brows, the eyes stand out, while keeping the front of the bob a touch longer and curled inwards has a pretty 1950s charm.

49. Orange Creamsicle Balayage With Side-Swept Bangs

Long bangs, swept to the side over one eye, exude mystery and intrigue. Side bangs are also quite flattering, especially for rounder and square face shapes. Paired here with a pastel orange, this look is flatteringly out of the ordinary.

50. Ash & Copper Ombre with Airy Bangs

The copper ombre added to ash brown hair here gives a lot of warmth. Wispy bangs are also a great option for anyone who wants easy styling for short haircuts with bangs. They’re airy and light, and don’t shorten the face the way fuller bangs might.
