Don't: The Chin-Length Bob

The bob haircut never really goes out of style. But only people with certain face shapes can pull this cut off. If you're reading this article, you probably have a rounder face, and therefore, we advise you to pass on this particular cut, and here's why:

If you want your face to look slimmer, wearing a hairstyle that frames your face will only call more attention to that roundness. Also, if you have a double-chin that you'd prefer to hide, a chin-length bob will draw the eye right to your problem area. Chin-length bobs also tend to add volume on the sides of the head, which will make your face look even wider. Instead, think about a longer hairstyle that lengthens the face, or bring your bob above chin level to draw eyes upward.
