There is no shortage of bob-length haircuts stylish enough to convince you to finally make the chop, from the fringed French bob to the retro flippy bob. However, if you find yourself lusting over the coolest, trendiest bob wearers out there, you might want to explore these choppy bobs before heading to the salon next. Choppy bobs have many often short layers that can create extra volume, body, and movement that many classic one-length bobs lack. Basically, these aren't falling flat anytime soon.

Luckily there are all sorts of choppy bobs to match your style and hair type, from super textured short bobs that graze the chin to airy long bobs that go lighter on the layers. Customize your cut with additions like bangs and blunt ends, and you'll have a look that's distinctly you. Here are 18 choppy bob hairstyles to consider for your next appointment.
