A general rule of thumb is that African-American women love hairstyles that are edgier. It might be a stereotype, but white women are more about being cute and adorable, while black women look for something sexier.

A bob hairstyle perfectly frames the features of a black woman. That makes the bob great option for African-American women. However, the classic bob is a bit “too cute” for black women. Therefore, we look at some edgier and sexier hairstyles that are rich in character.

The main thing is to emphasize the sass of a black woman. It is their biggest feature, and a hairstyle can make it or break it.

Thick natural tresses are whimsical when it comes to styling, therefore, haircuts for thick hair may sometimes look unflattering. A haircut is a key component of our image, so it needs to be selected thoughtfully. Black bob hairstyles, performed on thick hair, look fantastic and suit all face shapes. You only need to opt for the right length and finish. Adorable looks in this collection of images are both of famous personalities – celebrities, and beauty bloggers. Lets learn from them and draw inspiration.

Bob Variations

A classic bob suggests a single-length cut. Such a method adds “weight” and volume to hair, revealing its natural beauty and shine at fullest. Pay attention that bob haircuts make all imperfections and defects of hair structure, especially split hair ends, very noticeable.

Today there are plenty of techniques and various styles of bob haircuts for women. Short and medium-length bobs with bangs look luxurious on perfectly smooth and shiny hair. Depending on your style and type of face the contours of a bob haircut may be either graphically accurate or softened with light trimming at the ends. The most popular variations in 2017 also include elongated asymmetrical front tresses, edgy bottom contours and a feathered finish.

1. Straight Bob With Fringe

There was a time this was the classic Kim Kardashian hairstyle. She is one of the few celebrities in the US that can rock basically any hairstyle, and still look good. The bob with fringes was a fan favorite of hers for quite some time.

But there are just so many different variations. It is just absolutely versatile hairstyle. And even a sub-category like the A-line bob can be executed in so many different ways. For example, with some caramel highlights.

I cannot remember who was the last celebrity with this hairstyle at the red carpet. But I am sure I’ve seen this hairstyle in the last year. A bit more youngish, this is a hairstyle that will effectively shed some years out of your ID. For example, if you are 30+, people will definitely think you are 27-28. Of course, that depends on your outfit as well, but your hairstyle will say I am young.

12. Two Tone Deep Curl Bob

Let’s be honest for a moment. Not many girls can pull this hairstyle off. And if you want even more detailed, only black women can do it. It is a well known fact that African-American women love to experiment with edgy hairstyles. In that spirit, this one is as edgy and feminine as they come.

13. Layered Purple Bob

14. Curly Reddish Pin Up Bob

When you think of hairstyles that are tailor-made for African-American women, this one has to be among the best 5. It has everything. Fiery red, edgy, curls, and length that is just common among women.

15. Blue Black Curly Bob

You might say this is more of a Lady Gaga hairstyle, but it is still effective. For some reason, black women can easily work unique colors on their hair. I do not know why and how, but it just works.
