Bob Hairstyles The Back View
Bob hairstyles the back view is a unique hairstyle gallery featuring pictures of the bob from the back and sides. The inverted bob or A-line bobbed hairstyle has been around for decades.
Actress Louise Brooks had a "small dark helmet," and writer Dorothy Parker had to keep her hair simple so that she could redefine feminism. Famous coiffeur Vidal Sassoon did a memorable version for 60's designer Mary Quant and spurred a rounded look to complement the playful, almost cartoonish mood of Mod.
This opposite of this look later evolved into skater Dorothy Hamill's own variation called a "wedge." Since then, we've seen this look textured, colored, highlighted, and razor cut. The basic shape is the same for our retro blunt cut as well as her more modern piecey sisters.
Longer in the front, tapering shorter at the nape of the neck, it's a flattering style for gals who want to wear a short cut, but still need that little bit of hair to frame their face by keeping it chin length or longer in front. An A-line bob can also be with some of the current hot bangs and fringe, be it side swept or teeny and blunt cut.
A more retro inverted bob look is achieved by rounded, head-hugging layers that are undercut, which is just what it sounds like: cutting the layers underneath shorter than the ones closer to the crown. This shorter-in-back style will also show off a long graceful neck, or lengthen a short neck.
Some of the more modern layered styles don't have much of a slope to them, and are razor cut into more dramatic angles, highlighted with color. It's a very youthful and sassy look, with a lot of movement for a girl with her eye on fashion.

The Inverted Bob
The inverted bob can be cut in a slow graduated angle or cut sharply to an almost point, exposing all of the neck, and short layers at the back of the head that can be spiked up with a stiffer hair product. For thicker and coarser hair, the bob can offer a sleeker look that is harder to achieve without razoring the cuts.
The one constant in most bobbed hair styles is that they require a certain amount of styling. To keep a bob's shape and sleekness, you will need a decent blow dryer. Depending on how you would like to wear your stylish cut, you will need a smoothing balm and possibly a small straightening iron for all those shorter layers.
Thicker hair can be given a smoother appearance with a silicone sealant. Embracing natural texture is also going to be very "in" for this fall, so a texturizing cream applied to damp hair will give you a very contemporary look. These sometimes edgy styles takes on a classic look can be seen on the red carpet, runway, and city streets.
