For an inverted bob with bangs to take on and keep the proper shape, it needs to be cut and styled to flip under. One of the best ways to achieve this voluminous effect is to use a hot airbrush and a texturizing product at the roots. A hot air brush makes far less damage to the hair than a flat iron.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Inverted Bob?

An inverted bob is a kind of short bob haircut with a shorter back and slightly longer front strands. Typically, the hair length increases gradually from the ears level to the chin. However, inverted bobs also often reach the collarbone or even shoulders and can be extremely short with an undercut at the back.

Are inverted bobs Still in Style?

The inverted bob hairstyle is totally in style!
Having adopted some fresh tendencies and trendy details, the iconic inverted bob keeps transcending time for women of all ages, personalities, and shapes. The secret of such long-term popularity of inverted bob styles is that they are versatile and classic styles. No matter if you have straight hair or coarse wavy hair, thin or thick locks, you will find an inverted bob for you.

What is the Difference Between a Stacked Bob and an Inverted bob?

The biggest difference between an inverted bob and a stacked bob is the technique used to cut the shortest hair at the back. In a stacked bob the rear part must be layered, with extra volume, while in an inverted bob it’s not an issue and this section can be straight, with an undercut, or slightly rolled inward with a round brush.

Is Inverted Bob Good for Thin Hair?

Yes, inverted bob with sharp angles will give your hair a bit more dynamics and volume and will work magic for thin hair (unless it’s a sleek inverted bob.)
So, how to style a short bob so that it flatters thin hair?
To create a visual effect of thick hair, consider a shaggy bob, a short layered bob, a wispy sliced bob. Asymmetry, wavy and curly hair texture will also give that necessary volume and body.

What Face Shape Does an Inverted Bob Suit?

All kinds of inverted bob hairstyles are really flattering for oval faces. Thanks to the volume of a layered inverted bob, the face looks slightly more rounded.
As for the round face shape, a straight medium inverted bob or a smooth long inverted bob will elongate the face. A wavy inverted bob will work well too. Avoid short stacked inverted bob hairstyles, any cut, which ends above your chin, inverted bob with bangs (full bangs), or central parting – all of these will make your face look fuller.
