These 29 Brunette Bob Hairstyles Are Persuading Me to Cut My Hair

Every few months, I get this strong urge to cut my hair and get a bob. I had a 1950s-inspired bouncy bob once, and let me tell you, it changed my life. And recently, I've been spending much of my time in a never-ending daydream of reminiscing and searching for brunette bob hairstyles.

What I adore about the brunette bob haircut is how understated it is while still looking like a simple haircut. Don't get me wrong, it still requires plenty of skill from the hairstylist to make it look so effortless, but it's generally a manageable style, making it a great low maintenance haircut. And there are so many variations of the bob hairstyle to try. A cropped, blunt bob looks totally stylish, as does a bob with a fringe. But equally, if you want to keep the length of your hair, a long bob (also know as a 'lob') lets you dip a toe into a shorter hairstyle without going for a big chop.

The reason why I'm inching closer to the crop is that with a few styling tweaks and techniques, you can pretty much have a different hairstyle every day when you get this cut. Wear it curly, clip it back with a claw clip—the opportunities are endless. From waves to hair clips and everything in between, keep scrolling for all the brunette bob hairstyle inspo you'll ever need.
