The sleek bob has long been a popular hairstyle among women looking for a simple cut that is professional and easily kept. A traditional sleek bob is one in which the hair is straight, full and tapered at the neck. Bangs with this look are generally sculpted just above the eyebrows. You can try an inverted bob in which the hair is much shorter in the back than in the front with side swept fringe for an updated style to the basic bob.

One drawback to a layered style is you must wait for the different lengths to grow out if you want to switch to a longer sleeker style later.
