What is an inverted bob?

Answer

The inverted bob, also called a graduated bob, is a hair style that is shorter in the back and longer in the front. Inverted bobs have layers in the back to create a stacked look.

The inverted bob, made popular by singers Rihanna and Victoria Beckham, is generally cut as short as the nape of the neck in the back. The line is a horseshoe shape that elongates to the front. The back can be cut short enough to spike the crown or just short enough to create extra fullness in the back. The front pieces can be either symmetrical or asymmetrical.

To cut the inverted bob, hairstylists section out the hair and start at the back. Generally the back section of hair gets pulled together just below the occipital bone, where the first cut is made. Once all the hair has been cut into the bob shape, the hairstylist cuts the back into layers. This creates either a stacked or tapered look with long pieces left in the front.

Bobs are suitable for any hair texture — curly, wavy or straight. The most dramatic way to wear the inverted bob is on straightened hair. The most flattering length depends on the face shape, with long faces needing the front pieces to end at the chin and round faces needing longer ends.
