A choppy bob haircut is a bob hairstyle in which the hair strands are cut in differing lengths. There are a variety of short and long bob hairstyles, and, generally, it is necessary to have straight hair for these hairstyles. To choose the best choppy bob haircut, it might help to research the different styles and find the ones that will best suit the shape of your face and your hair type. You might also want to consider the amount of maintenance needed, and whether the choppy bob haircut you choose is suitable for your life situation; for instance, if it might be appropriate for your line of work.
Choppy bob haircuts tend to be quite individualistic, and are becoming very popular with trendsetters and fashion-conscious people. The basic choppy bob haircut is easy to maintain, which accounts for its growing appeal. Different style combinations like long side bangs, short backs, and blunt or ragged bangs can jazz up the basic bob. Long hair may also be cut in uneven, graduated layers to create a more diversified effect. Pairing the choppy bob haircut with some eye-catching hair colors can make for an even more unique look.
As mentioned, straight hair is often considered a requirement for the bob haircuts, and if the hair is not naturally straight, it will need to be straightened before it is styled. Wavy, curly or frizzy hair can be straightened with a hair-straightening iron or with a hair-straightening chemical wash; it is best to apply a hair cream before the chemical wash to avoid any hair damage, and, if there are any concerns, to consult a qualified hair beautician beforehand. The hair may be cut with scissors or with a razor. To get the choppy effect, the hair strands are cut separately; each hair strand is held aside and cut at a 45 degree angle. Different kinds of effects are possible, from jagged to wispy.
The blunt choppy bob haircut is achieved by trimming the hair short to ear or chin level on the sides and at the back, and cutting it in a fringe to eyebrow level in the front. The hair is first cut evenly and then individual attention is given to the strands. Layered long bob hairstyles are recommended for medium length or long hair. For this hairstyle, the hair is parted in the center and the hair is sectioned and cut in different lengths.
