Cons of Bob Hairstyles
- Bob hairstyles require frequent trims
If you like your bob cut and want to keep that look for some time, it will require frequent trips to the hair salon. You should probably get your bob hairstyle trimmed every 4-6 weeks. However if you really love the look, it is definitely worth the effort.
- Bob haircuts limit your options for hair accessories
Depending on which bob hairstyle you choose, you may be unable to pull your hair back in a ponytail or updo. This will also limit you when it comes to wearing ribbons, clips and the like in your hair. However, if you get a longer bob, or a lob, you can still pull your hair back in a cute half up/half down hairstyle!
- Bob cuts can take a long time to grow out

The main disadvantage of a short bob cut is that it will take a bit longer to grow out. This is especially true if you have an angled or asymmetrical bob. It may require some trimming while you are growing it out to keep it from looking unruly. But one of the beat things about hair is that it always grows back, no matter what style you choose!
