Sassy means lively, bold, full of spirit and cheeky, so expect to see innovative, daring and edgy ways to cut, color and style your inverted bob. Renowned hair stylist Chris McMillan, famed for creating some of the most iconic celebrity hairstyles, has often emphasized the inverted bob’s appeal. “What’s incredible about the inverted bob is its transformative power,” he says. “It’s a hairstyle that can instantly make you look chic and modern, while offering various styling options to suit your mood and the occasion. Plus, it’s just as striking in monochrome as it is in balayage or ombre.” Beyond its celebrity endorsements, the inverted bob has stood the test of time as one of the most versatile, transformative hairstyles. Whether you’re seeking a sassy, lively vibe or a more subdued, professional look, the inverted bob has you covered. Its adaptability extends not only to different personalities and facial shapes but also to an array of color choices—from platinum blonde to deep brunette to multi-tonal hues. This hairstyle truly offers a canvas for self-expression like no other. Today’s gallery of bobs includes disconnected layers, new blonde shades including white, neutral and ash-blonde gray colors, plus warmer colors like red, copper and muted orange on brunette bobs in a range of different lengths. If you haven’t tried a sassy look before, now’s a great time to switch your look to something bolder and get a trendy, confident image!

1. Neck-hugging layers & shaggy tips

Messy Inverted Bob

Instead of a shaved line below a strongly stacked back, try this beautifully tapered shape for medium and thick hair. Attractive volume at the crown curves into vertical, sliced layers with tapered ends for a slightly shaggy finish. The mix of curves and spiky tips continues in disconnected layers at the sides.

2. Max-impact party balayage on wavy bob

Two-tone Inverted Bob

This eye-catching hairstyle is totally unique and a very intricate and beautiful piece of art! Long hair is arranged in lovely, large waves along the sides ending in perfect ringlets, and beautifully highlighted in orange-gold-blonde! The roots and front layers are tinted medium-brown, in this unforgettable, maximum-impact bob!

3. Short Inverted Bob Hairstyle

Layered Short Bob

Moving on to edgy, easy-care daily hairstyles we have this severe boy-cut that’s suitable for medium to thick hair. The shaved back/sides and sliced top layers with sharply textured tips project a go-getting, energetic image and the gorgeous copper-red also commands attention. Suits round faces perfectly!

4. Feminine softly curved medium-brown bob

Inverted Bob with Wispy Bangs

This trendy angled bob is the opposite of the boy-cut above and projects a softly feminine image. It’s suitable for medium to thick hair with enough natural volume to create the lovely rounded volume at the back. Lightly stacked layers create lively texture and fine bangs focus attention on the eyes in a smooth, well-groomed look.

5. Disconnected layers & bright white balayage

Black and Blonde Bob

This year’s hair color options for dark-blonde/mousey hair are incredibly creative! This simple bob becomes edgier with long disconnected layers on one side. And lightening mousey-brown hair to gleaming medium-golden blonde is a brilliant way to look more attractive. With white balayage you can reflect lots of flattering light and focus on your eyes!

6. Hip shaggy bob with silvery-gray & faded beige-pink balayage

Highlighted Bob

Whip your lovely thick hair into an easy-care, shaggy bob that needs very little styling! This inverted bob finishes at chin-level, making it a good length for almost all face shapes. Silver-gray and faded-pink-beige balayage create a sassy, unconventional vibe and heavily textured spiky tips show you’re chic, but still ‘wild at heart’!

7. Neutral blonde over dark roots

Curly Bob

Fine hair types sometimes lack enough density for an edgy stacked back bob, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a sassy bob! Tousled waves are the best way to add volume and a strong contrast between dark roots and light neutral blonde is another edgy way to make hair appear denser!

8. Romantic wispy bob

Blonde Inverted Waves

This is another inverted bob that’s given volume through tousled, wavy hair and blurred edges. The angle down from the back is emphasized by trendy disconnected layers at the side and the silhouette has a soft, wispy look. Rippled texture and lively movement are accentuated by blonde balayage in a flattering style for angular faces.

9. Circular styling line on asymmetrical bob

Inverted Bob for Brunette

This is a fun look for thick hair in an asymmetrical bob. The hidden shorter side is styled away from the face and the fluid line continues around the head, so you have forward movement on the longer side! Sliced layers with tapered tips accentuate this trendy look that suits long, oval, heart and round faces.

10. Smooth & steep inverted bob

Black Bob

The exaggerated long line of this bob is a great way to make your face appear longer and slimmer. Curling the ends under is the perfect way to add extra volume and shape to fine hair and a little blonde balayage draws attention to the shorter layers at the back of this highly fashionable look!

11. Chic high-fashion cut & color

Blonde Layered Bob

This bob has a beautifully tapered center-back, which drops dramatically down in a disconnected layer. The curved volume at the back is echoed in the sides with blunt curved tips facing forwards. Add in gray-blonde and a touch of golden balayage for a very chic style for oval, round and heart faces!
