Looking to revamp your look with a short bob haircut? If you’re a woman over 50, you’re in for a treat! Renowned hairstylist Linda Miller shares her expertise on choosing the best short bob style for your hair type and face shape. Discover her tips and tricks to achieve a chic, age-defying bob that suits your unique features and lifestyle.

Best Bob for Your Face Shape

“Every face shape is beautiful, so it’s crucial to choose a bob that accentuates your best features,” advises Miller. If you have a round face, opt for a longer bob that falls below the chin to elongate your face. If your face is square, aim for a more layered, textured look with a side-swept bang. Oval faces are versatile and can carry off most bob styles, but Miller recommends a shoulder-length bob or a textured bob with face-framing layers.

Working with Your Hair Type

If you have a heart-shaped face, Miller suggests a chin-length bob with a soft bang to balance the width of your forehead. For a diamond-shaped face, a textured bob with face-framing layers is ideal.
