Graduated Bob

The graduated bob is a versatile, flattering, and sophisticated cut. The look can be styled sweet, edgy, or somewhere in between.

You’ve seen this hot hairstyle everywhere, including on Rihanna, Paris Hilton, and Victoria Beckham – demonstrating the range of different styles and personalities the angled bob can take on.

The line and shape of this classic cut has changed with the trends. Once cut straight across in a solid line, the modern angled bob uses vertical lines and horizontal graduation for a complex shape and form.

This medium length graduated bob is as flattering as it is easy to style. Thick hair angles from the nape of the neck down to a demi bob length, hitting somewhere between the chin and shoulders.


To keep hair smooth and free of fly aways, smooth a serum over damp or dry hair. Great options to try are the longtime favorite¬†John Frieda Frizz-Ease Extra Strength Serum, L’Oreal EverPure Smooth Serum for a lovely mint and rosemary smell, or Citre Shine Miracle Anti-frizz Serum for added sheen.

Color is a great way to add to the drama of the graduated bob. This stunning chin length bob pairs bold shade of red hair with steep angles that show off gorgeous cheekbones and the angle of the jaw.

Layers give this bob without bangs a feminine and flattering rounded shape, gently framing the face.

The graduated, also known as the stacked bob, also looks great with bangs. This attention getting look also makes the most of thick hair.

Wispy peek-a-boo bangs transition into the hairstyle’s longest layers. The bob slants dramatically from shoulder length all the way up to the nape of neck. This graduated look is also fantastic with an asymmetrical bob.
