There are so many reasons chin-length hairstyles are so hot right now.

Chin-length hairstyles are so versatile. Whether you want to go smooth and sleek or layered and choppy, curly or wavy, edgy or elegant, there is a chin-length hairstyle out there for everyone. One of the best things about chin-length haircuts is that you don’t have to choose just one style.

Most cuts can be styled differently with a few styling products to take you from the beach to the boardroom.

Not to mention that the shorter the hair, the faster and easier it is to style!

We’ve put together 15 of our favorite chin-length hairstyle looks for your inspiration.


#1. Short Beach Waves

This style is great for all face shapes. It works particularly well to give thinner hair volume. The waves soften the jawline and flatter any face shape. The loose-styled waves at the front and sides add volume and length while keeping it short in the back.

#2. Shaggy Stacked Layers

A short shaggy stacked bob with layered side-parted bangs creates a lived-in, casual look. The layers add natural looking volume, keeping the bulk of the hair at the top, creating an almost weightless feeling.

#3. A-Line Bob

The classic A-line bob keeps the length at the front and off your neck, giving the illusion of longer hair.  You can change up your look with this style by parting it to the side or in the middle. Either way, the sweeping front pieces will perfectly frame your face.

#4. Long Asymmetrical Pixie with Side Swept Bangs

This is a slightly longer version of the pixie. It’s almost like a ¾ pixie with a little extra. The back and one side are layered and kept short, while a side part has the top swept over.

Longer layers taper down to about chin length, while a side-swept fringe and a section on the opposite side, which is left longer, complete the look.

#5. Long Pixie

This is also a longer version of the pixie haircut, but instead of the front being longer, this version is more like the pixie mullet. It’s an edgy and stylish option if you think you can pull it off.

A short fringe is paired with lots of layers that graduate to about chin length in the back. Longer layered tendrils are styled in front of the ear. This is a great style for those with thin hair.

#6. Curly A-Line with Side Parted Curtain Bangs

Embrace your natural curls! This is a standard A-line cut. It’s shorter at the back and longer at the front.

Curtain bangs have been added so the curls at the front start a bit shorter and gradually get longer to seamlessly blend into the side length.

#7. Chin-Length Blunt Bob

There is nothing special about the cut. It’s basically straight across the bottom, with a little bit of feathered edging at the ends.

But its simplicity is what makes the chin-length blunt bob a classic and perfect for just about any occasion.

Looking equally great with jeans and a t-shirt, or a cocktail dress. You can part it on the side or in the middle. This is a perfect cut for thinner hair.

#8. Blunt Bob with Color

Chin-length cuts are great for adding a splash of color. The classic blunt bob in a fiery copper-orange looks surprisingly chic at this length.

Whereas the same color on longer hair would not have the same effect.

#9. French Bob

The French bob style originated in the 1920s. Just slightly shorter than chin-length, this bob is paired with blunt bangs that sit on the brow line.

Looking equally cute with the ends curled under or flipped out, this vintage style has us saying: “Oui!”

 #10. Curls with Curtain Bangs

If your hair is naturally curly or wavy, a layered bob with curtain bangs is a great option. While long hair weighs down natural curls, this shorter length adds more volume and fullness to waves and curls.

The curtain bangs nicely frame the face.

#11. Asymmetrical Razorcut

The textured cut generates volume gives this blonde bob a sexy tousled look. The off-center parting frames the face. Very loose and subtle waves and short cut at the nape of the neck are what make this style.

#12. Blunt Bob with Bangs

You can’t go wrong with a blunt bob and blunt bangs. As long as the bangs are resting at the brow line, this cut gives off a classy and sassy vibe.

It’s a stand-out style that does wonders for accentuating cheekbones and the jawline.

This style looks great on anyone with a round, square or heart-shaped face.

#13. Side Parted Stacked Bob

Another style you simply cannot go wrong with. Slightly A-line, the stacked layers give this cut volume while maintaining a longer overall length.

#14. Long Textured Layers with Bangs

Textured longer layers give this style a clean and sculpted, yet fun and edgy look that will take you from day to night. This is a great style for both thin and thick hair.

The long layers will add volume to thinner hair, while the same long layers will get rid of the unnecessary bulk of thicker hair.

#15. Bob with Widespread Curtain Bangs

The beauty of this style is that it is low-maintenance and takes little styling.

Wearing the hair to the outer edges of the forehead creates a more youthful appearance. This is one of the few fringe styles that will work with a cowlick.

The widespread bangs keep hair away from the face drawing attention to features.
