What Exactly Is An Inverted Bob?

For all of you not familiar with the style, we are going to explain exactly what it is. This is not like your traditional bob because the back is a lot shorter than the front. It is very similar to an A-line bob but they also differ in a few ways. The difference is that the inverted bob is usually stacked with tapered layers. It doesn’t have a flat back like the A-line bob, it’s more of a curve. You can stack the style as much as you want, it doesn’t have to be major but it can be depending on how dramatic of a look you wanted. Depending on what you want in regards to layers you can decide what you want in regards to the inverted look.

Long Inverted Bob

This is a really sexy style and a great one for women who do not want to cut their hair short. Look how amazingly sleek this style is. You can do an extended version of the inverted bob so that you don’t have to cut all your hair off. It will also provide you with a lot more volume than if your hair was just long. Because the back is short, it will give you a lot more bounce to the style while you will still have the length in the front. This will allow you a lot more freedom to style your hair in any way that you want. You can always shorten the style later if you want to try something new or if you get braver for a shorter style.

Short Inverted Bob

If you are looking for a style that is short then this is the style for you. The style is excellent for anyone that is looking for something short and cropped. You can tailor the look to suit your personal style. You can finish the look so that it ends at your chin or cheekbones, depending on your face shape. There are different ways of wearing the style like a middle part or a side part.

We have so many options here to inspire you to find the look that you love. This look works for any age, personality, or face shape. You just need to find the style that works best for you.

Is Cutting Your Hair Short Right For You?

You might have decided that you need a change, that you want a different hairstyle. You have had long hair for a while and you just want to have a different look. You’ve decided to go short but maybe that’s not what’s best. Oftentimes women cut their hair short on a whim and then regret it later. These styles are really awesome but we want you to be sure that you are making the right decision.

Sometimes we see a celebrity that makes the big move to cut their hair and we get inspired to do the same. Charlize Theron is a perfect example of this. We were shocked when she cut all her hair off to play her role in Mad Max but man, did she ever pull that off. She looks incredible with long hair but in this case, she was able to pull off a hairstyle so short that most people would never have been that brave. But sometimes being brave is worthwhile. So, how do you know that cutting your hair is right for you?

It Has to Be The Right Time

What we mean by this is that you shouldn’t cut off all your hair just because you broke up with your boyfriend and you need “a change.” There is definitely a time to cut your hair and after a breakup is not that time. Sure, it may have worked out for actress/dancer Julianne Hough after her breakup but it’s not something that everyone should consider doing. Some people actually have regrets about it because they acted so fast. That goes for any big life change in your life, it’s just not the time to get a serious haircut. If you are thinking about it, you could always try to go short in stages so that it’s not such a shock. For some people cutting their long hair short can be scary because they’ve never done it before. It’s not to discourage you but it’s always best to wait for the right time to make a big hair decision.

Don’t Worry About Face Shape

Sure, certain styles work well with better face shapes but that doesn’t mean that you have to follow strict rules. There are a ton of worries that hairstylists hear like when a client says their face is too round or long and they are worried about the hairstyle. You really don’t have to worry about face shape so much when it comes to short hair because it’s more about personality than anything. Short hair requires confidence to pull it off. Decide what makes you feel good and confident and work around that.

The Texture Of Your Hair Matters

The texture of your hair is more important than the face shape. It doesn’t mean that you can’t have a short haircut but it just means that you have to work with what you have. If you have curly hair you can cut it short and the hairstylist will often texture the curls so that they don’t feel as heavy. They will take the weight of the curls from underneath your style. The idea is to get textured ends and not layers. You should discuss with your stylist about what short styles are best for fine hair as opposed to thick hair. As you can see with the pictures here that people with both thin hair and thick hair have inverted bobs, they just might be styled differently. The point is to always work with what you have. The undercut usually isn’t a good look for someone that has fine hair so maybe leave that out of the style. If you take off too much weight in the hair it might make you seem like you don’t have a lot of hair.

Make Sure You Have the Right Stylist

The last thing you want during this journey to short hair is to end up with a bad haircut. You won’t be able to hide a bad haircut in a braid either. It’s too risky when you are looking for a new style. Imagine having to stare at that terrible haircut in the mirror for days, weeks, months until it grows out. You don’t want that. You can’t hide a lot when it comes to short hair. Getting a great hairstyle is all about the cut. That’s why it’s really important to make sure you have a stylist that knows what they are doing especially when it comes to the inverted bob. It’s not about necessarily getting a good style but to find a stylist that is really good at this particular cut. I would suggest seeing the stylist’s portfolio to see if she’s done a cut like that before and how it turned out. There are a lot of stylists on Instagram now, so you could check that out for whatever stylist or salon that you are interested in. You can even ask someone you see that has the same style and ask where they went to get the cut. The point is that you need to get a stylist that knows what they are doing.

Bring Picture to Your Appointment

We can’t state enough that pictures always work best when trying to explain what you want to a stylist. When a stylist can look at a picture, there should never be any confusion on what you want. A lot of stylists won’t even make a big change on their clients without a picture. They want to see what you are envisioning so that there are no mistakes. They don’t want to hear you say after the cut, “that’s not what I was thinking of.” You can get pictures anywhere. This article has a ton but you can also look on Pinterest and Instagram. They also recommend you bring in pictures of what you don’t want as well so that the stylist also knows what you don’t want the style to look like.

Don’t Do Things That Don’t Work

Long hair can hide a lot about your hair that you really didn’t know about. The one thing about short hair is that it will reveal a lot. For example, long hair can pull down a cowlick so that you don’t even notice it but once you have short air the cowlick might be a lot more evident. There are things that you might not have had to deal with long hair that becomes evident with short hair. When you go to the stylist make sure that there isn’t a lot of product in your hair. Your stylist needs to know how your hair is naturally not straightened or pumped full of products.

Always Be Realistic About Your Style

You have to realize that when it comes to short hair that it usually requires you to put more effort into styling. If you are the type of person that doesn’t like to style your hair or you are always throwing your hair in a ponytail, then cutting your hair short might not be the best idea. You could always go with a long-inverted bob but if you are going short, then please keep in mind that you will need to spend some time styling it. It’s much the same as your clothing style. There are days when you will have to slip into a sundress instead of a pair of jeans and that’s the same as hair. You will need to save some time in the morning to get ready. Depending on how short you go will depend on if your routine is about just adding a bit of pomade to your style or possibly adding time to straight or curl it as well. When you are talking to your stylist about the style you want, ask them how much effort it will take to get ready in the morning. From there you can decide if it’s something that you want to get into.

An amazing style like this is sure to turn heads because it is sleek and incredible. It’s a look that will require confidence and fearlessness to pull off. If you are looking for flare and drama, then this is the style for you.

This is such a glamourous style that you are going to love. If you are someone that wants to keep their hair long, then this style will work for you.

There is much to consider when you are thinking about changing up your look. we hope that you found everything informative and that you have a great picture to take to the stylist with you. Trying a new style is an exciting time and you have lots to consider when making this decision. It’s okay to try new things and to be fearless with what you want.
