Who said long curly hairstyles get to have all the fun?!

I absolutely love a great short curly bob.

There is so much sass in this style, it can’t be ignored!

I honestly felt like it was my duty to showcase some of the most beautiful curly bobs out there.

I collected some of our beautiful CurlMixers rocking their take on a curly bob!

And I show you how you can get your own

So without further ado... 

What is a curly bob?

A curly bob or even just a simple, bob cut is a short- to the medium-length haircut where the hair is cut straight around the head at about jaw-level, often with bangs. 

The standard bob is normally cut somewhere between the tips of the ears, and the shoulders.

There is a lot of room to get creative, even with this short style and curly hair can add layers and definition, for a unique look.

How can I get a curly bob cut?

We always suggest cutting your hair how you wear it most often.

For most curlies that means finding a stylist who can cut your hair in it’s curly state, no heat, straitening!
