A bob cut or bob is a short haircut for women (and occasionally men) in which the hair is typically cut straight around the head at about the level of the jaw-level, often with a fringe (or "bangs") at the front. Bob hairstyles may be seen in classic and modern cuts, worn by both females and males. Classic bob hairstyles are reminiscent of the 1960s feminine haircut that was non-layered. Short and sweet bob hairstyles, the ones they're all talking about. Gorgeous colours and cuts, layered, blunt, bedhead chic.
