57 Bowl Cuts Ideas to “Just Do It”


Bowl Cuts or shall we say Bold Cuts?

The dawn of modern feminism has already set upon us.

Gone are the days when women were labelled with long hairs, shy eyes and meek voices. Now we gallop side by side with men in every aspect of society known to all, don’t we girls?

So as we explore deeper into the men-inspired fashion statements in the modern world, we are surely to come across this new trend of bowl cuts. Maybe you remember this look because of the iconic character Lloyd Christmas played by Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber or Moe in The Three Stooges. You may find that this look accentuated the comical character in the movies. But I tell you, women do have the superpower of turning something hilarious like this into a chic fashion statement that leaves the spectator dizzy with awe.

Don’t believe me?

Ask Rihanna, Ruby Rose, Kristen Stewart, Kim Kardashian or any another celebrity who have chosen the bowl cut style and rocked it.

So If you are looking forward to BE BOLD and take a leap to the EDGY side, we have some ideas that might help you.

Here are 57 bowl cut ideas that will blow your mind.

1.The Cesson

Cesson is a retro style haircut that works best for thick short as well as medium length hair. The bangs as well as the side hairs have volume and cut to highlight the features like eyes and nose especially.

It seems like a earlier version of a bowl cut. So if you are having doubts on whether or not to go on full bowl style, this haircut will keep you on the safer shores.

2. The Texture tales

If you want to add a bit of extra texture to your hair along with the bowl cut then I believe adding extra layers from the top will be it. Its edgy,  its sexy and most fun of all, it requires very  low amount of maintenance.

And think about all the time you could save that would have been wasted on tugging this strand and torturing another.

3. Short and not So simple

Here is what you can do if you want to live up to the expectations of “short”.Razor off the lower part while adding some length to the top. Play with the edges and rock them as they are.

4. The Big Blunt Theory

If you want that to reach to the extremity and try the Chili cut  then go for this look. Do not be afraid to be blunt, let your hair show the ferocity in you.

5. Mushroomed Down

Feeling nostalgic as you remember your childhood with the mushroom cuts? Why not channel your inner child with the past look brought back to life.

Play with colors to reflect the cheerfulness and let the strands bounce with the shape. You would be surprised as how much change a haircut can bring in your mood.

6. Pointy and Petite

Add a little bit of shape and edges to the cut and there you have a trend setting cut. A sleek trim at the sides to create a triangular shape will be your perfect contraction from the ordinary straight cut.

Let the punk material hidden in you come out to play a bit.

7. Natural flow

Flatter the wavy nature of your hair with the short layered cut. Not so boyish to scare away the dudes and not too girly to be the stereotype. If that is what you are looking for then we would recommend you this cut.

8. Platinum Pink

If you want a soft shiny finish to your bowl cut then go for the platinum pink shade. The light pink shade offers a sweetness along with the eye catching hue of platinum.

9.  Lengths at odds

It is not necessary that the length of the hair in bowl cuts be similar. Add in extra layers to pump up the volume and some eye catching textures.

An under-shave running just an inch above the ears would help highlight the feminine features while the layers add a chic touch.

10. Sassy yet sweet

This sweet and sour version of bowl cut is a must try for the fashion season. The straight bangs in the front represents the classy side and the tousled layers at the back lets your freedom dance in the wind.

11. Explicitly short

If you want to go for a strong unisex look, then opt for the shave that goes to almost the top of the head.

The blonde highlight and the sexy under shave work well to give you one of a kind look.

12. Barely Bangs

Bold enough to rock your level with whole new level of short? Try this bangs lingering from the edge of your forehead.

But let me tell you, not everyone can pull this daring look. You need guts and the perfect symmetry to rock them.

13. Cheeky Bowl Cuts

Flirt a little with the not so short bob version of bowl cut. Let the length end a little bit above the ear for a playful touch.

Light warm colors add vibrancy and save us from the dark monotone of the world.

14. Hot and Mod

If you are looking for something classy yet cool then this cut is for you. Long bangs and a shaved under look is something what you call hot.

The side swept bangs add a bit of dimension here and see how the colors are creating an illusion of thickness? One word for this look…WINNER

15. Silvery Shine

When playing with color its always better to start at a lighter hue from the top and work your way into the darker shades as you move down.

See how the silvery sheen highlights the bulk on top and the darker tones support them at the base? That is how you rock a bowl cut with colors.

16. Snow Queen

Rule the hearts of the beholders with that icy blue tone and the ruffled locks of yours.

Its time to let out the bad ass queen with this look. Give it more layers to add volume. Stick with subtle make up to match the look. And there you have it, the snow queen.

17. Different shades of many 

When you have short hair, you can have a color party. Teal, Turquoise and other matching colors added in a bowl cut will only bring life to your hair and every time you turn around, you start disco of your own.

18. Best of Both Worlds

Who said you only can keep a only a single monotonous layer in a bowl cut? You can elegantly glide away with the sexy bowl and suave bob with this look.

The bowl shaped fringes will keep your hair coming to your eyes while the bob makes sure that there is enough room to play with the shapes.

19. To the point bowl

Give your hair some depth with some asymmetry. And the right combination of highlights emerging from the lines will definitely intensify the deep part.

26. Bowls and Bangs

Longer heavy bangs at the front seem to work well with the bowl cuts. The bang does not need to be cut in a straight line. You can work well with asymmetrical bangs adding an extra natural lift to the face.
