How to fix a bad bob haircut?

A bad bob haircut is one of the most common mistakes that can happen to anyone. So, if you find yourself with a bad bob haircut, here are some helpful tips on how to fix it.

If your bob is uneven (check this by parting it down the middle and looking in the mirror) because the front bits are not the same length, comb your hair again. I’ll explain why later

If you’re not happy with your bob haircut, trim the back to even it out. This will maintain the shape of the cut without changing too much.

To grow your bob back to its original length, just wait for it to grow out. Bobs are traditionally a shorter hairstyle after all.

But don’t worry, because here we’re going to go over what you can do with your hair to keep it looking alright in the meantime.

Some women get excited or on edge the moment they start talking about short haircuts

Wearing short hair doesn’t mean you lower your power as a “femme fatal”. Plenty of women keep wearing their hair long and love it. As for me, I can’t figure out why some women think that’s the case.

But the popular idea that “women with short hair are less feminine and powerful” has been debunked by bob.

There exist many female figures in society and media that can be seen as both feminine and powerful–even with short hair.

But of course, it can be upsetting when you take the leap and cut your hair off with no idea how it will turn out.

A simple short bob is a good addition to any type of hair. Created as the antithesis to the mega-mullet, it works well on most face shapes.

Another perk is that the cut requires minimal maintenance. All you have to do is maintain the shape.

If you had a bad haircut, do you regret going to the salon?

That’s what we’ll discuss next. So if you wish you could go back to the salon and ask to get all the strands of hair that ended up on your floor back on your head, take a deep breath. Because we’re going to talk about:

  • Learn how to fix a messy or uneven bob
  • Learn how to fix a bob that’s too short


The first step in fixing a bad bob haircut is figuring out what went wrong. The two most common issues are that it’s uneven towards the front or messy towards the back

A bob is a complex haircut that can require a variety of tools. They often have a 45-degree angle from the neckline.

Bad haircuts can be a nightmare and unfortunately there are many examples to demonstrate this.


Here’s a simple fix to this common error: give your hair cut the ‘bob’ look  – that is, strands that fall from just above the forehead, to either side of your face.

Most salons will part your hair down the middle and cut it symmetrically.

Looks great in the salon, but what about once you get home and part it to the side?

At that moment, the side with more people looking will look longer

How to fix a bad bob haircut thats uneven in the front?

One option is to divide your hair into two parts, to make the accentuated bob symmetrical.

In order to avoid the situation you describe, it may be a good idea to tell your stylist that you part your hair on one side before going in for a haircut.

This way they can adjust the haircut to how you style your hair and avoid the uneven ends.


“As was said at the outset, a bob is a difficult haircut. Cutting a great bob requires attention to many details”

One detail to think about with a bob is the back of it, especially since bobs sit in the range of shoulder length to longer.

What does this mean?

That the part above the neck rises.The effect is created by adding consecutive layers that are angled at a 45-degree angle

This is why you can’t just do a haircut on your own when you’re new to the hairstyles. If the back of my bob came out uneven or messy, I would go back to the salon and ask them to even it out.

The stylist will be able to trim the layers of the style and make it even. This way, you won’t lose shape and volume and can still keep a professional look

If you are sensitive about your hair being split, ask your stylist to avoid using a razor when cutting it. The ends will be split by the next ten days after the cut anyway.

Scissors are the best tool to use to cut the back of any bob haircut.

If your bob is too short, you’re in for some bad news. However, there are a few good things that come from bad situations.

I’m not going to lie, there are some cons. But before I mention them, let me first say what i don’t like.

If you are unhappy with your hair’s current length, you will need to wait for it to grow.

And now for the good news: there are ways to style your bob to look better now. We’ll touch on those next.


Bob haircuts are short hairstyles, this means that hair length will be shorter. If you want them to look like shoulder-length hair then you might want to choose another style.

This haircut starts a bit below the chin and finishes a little above the nape of your neck. Bobs can also be pretty short but will usually be about 1-2 inches longer.

So if you’re not ready for a short haircut, maybe avoid a bob.

In the event that your hair is cut too short, all might feel lost. But don’t get discouraged! Hair grows and you can always style a bob in the meantime.

While you wait, you can wear it half up and half down. All you need is a couple of clips for a fresh, young look.

There are many options available with different colors, glitter, or flowers for those interested.

To replicate a feminine hairstyle, start by combing out two vertical strands of hair from the front to the back of your ears.

Comb the front of the hair back away from the face, and secure it with a clip. This is an example of how you would style a bob.

Another alternative is to put your hair in a ribbon or hairband, which is very popular in Europe and can give you an elegant look.

To create the styles, put the ribbon under your hair then tie a knot around your head with it. It should look like a headband.

Wider headbands are better for curls and thin headbands look best for straight hair.

Along with this headband, you can put your hair up in a ponytail (on the side or back of your head) for an alternative style. You can also use bobby pins to prevent the headband from moving around.

Although they are a bit more money, you can alternatively purchase clip-in extensions from most hair departments.

Clip-in extensions are multiple strands of hair that you can clip in your hair. They come in a variety of colors.

Clip-in extensions can be taken out and used again and again. They’re great for special occasions because you can repurpose your existing extensions instead of buying a new one each time.

Lastly, you can boost hair growth with a biotin treatment. Biotin treatments include applying an ampule and leaving it on your scalp for an hour.

Biotin is what is responsible for hair growth. This ampule stimulates your hair and helps it grow. It isn’t a miracle cure but it does help.


It’s not always easy to tell what the result will be after you’ve had your hair done. If you are not happy, or feel like the hairdresser did not do a good job, the best thing to do is go back.

How to fix a bad bob haircut can be done in many different ways, so there are specific steps involved.

This includes trimming the hair at the ends, cutting them straight across at an angle, using shears to give a “frame” to your face for a smooth appearance.
