3. Blonde Layered Mid-Length Straight Hair
Apart from lobs, layers can also work wonders on straight hair. The layers here aren’t the most visible, but when you make such a charming center parting, literally no one would care.
4. Sleek Blonde Shoulder-Length Lob
I should’ve added a warning that the majority of styles on this compilation would be lobs, but consider this a heads up. I’m not sure that would make you click away though; as they’re all uniquely adorable.
5. Cute Platinum Lob with Bangs
Platinum is another alluring blonde-like color you should try with your straight hair, and when you wear it in this adorable lob with the soft bangs, it’s impossible to go wrong.

A straight blonde hairstyle is always in order for the summer, and you can see it in this endearing style. With a center parting that good, who needs bangs for adornment?
7. Brown Neck-Length Bob
Your straight hair doesn’t have to be blonde; here’s a chic example for brunette ladies to prove that. Using the center parting template we’ve seen earlier, this style is one of my favorite so far.
8. Classic Black Polished Bob
This neatly-cut polished black bob puts many of the preceding blonde and brunette ideas to shame. Now that black is represented, I think I’ll suspend my blonde coloring plans for now.
9. Straight Lob with Soft Bangs
Black lobs are naturally beautiful, but you can take that beauty to the next level with wispy soft bangs. Even without too much volume, the resulting hairstyle manages to put up a charming look.
10. Statement Medium Length Straight Lob with Bangs
The lob with bangs formula isn’t only for black hair; here’s a brunette rocking it with pride. Pitting it against its black counterpart would be fair, but I’m not here to create hair matchups.
11. Long Bob with Shadow Root on Straight Hair
If you’re already getting tired of lobs, I’d implore you to start getting used to them instead. Getting used to them shouldn’t be challenging, when it’s long enough with black root on platinum hair, creating a dimensional shadow effect. Easy 10/10 hairstyle.
12. Beachy Mid-Length Straight Hair with Curtain Bangs
With this insane length, I’d be careful to refer to this as mid-length hair, but the main point still stands: wearing beachy straight hair long curtain bangs and a center parting will always look adorable.
13. Fluffy Thick Bob with Layers
Who said the perfect color blend doesn’t exist? This dimensional brown-blonde look seems perfect to me, and the layers rounds up what’s no doubt a masterpiece among hairstyles.
14. Shoulder-Length Cropped Lob Haircut
The perfect length for a cropped lob is just below your shoulders, and I think this idea showcases it perfectly. You should also appreciate the dimensional, center parted look; it’s what makes the hairstyle look so good.
15. Middle-Parted Bob with Highlights
Here’s yet another center-parted lob that looks adorable; we’ve come to expect it now. The subtle black highlights help the look, but I don’t see them as indispensable.
16. Slick Back Ponytail
Finally, a medium length haircuts for straight hair that’s not a bob. This time, we’re tying a dimensional ponytail, and it looks more elegant than I expect. If you’re after something more relaxed than a bob, here’s your best bet.
17. Classic Bleached Long Bob
This classic long bob uses a unique color to create an irresistible look and throws in a center parting for extra flair. The parting isn’t exactly symmetrical, but it’s close, so it offers similar adorning properties.
18. Bronze Balayage Bob on Straight Hair
Considering this is a compilation of straight haircuts, you may be surprised to find this wavy idea. It made the list for two reasons: it’s close so it might as well be straight, and it’s so adorable that I just had to add it.
19. Summer Neck-Length Bob Haircut
Having your lob stop at shoulder level is a proven recipe for success, and here’s further proof to drive the point home. The face framing look of the style’s inward curve looks admirable to me, earning it a rightful place on this list.
20. Mid-Length Rooted Blonde Lob for Older Women
Here’s another style that uses the same length template, but this time in blonde. Replicating this lob’s allure would involve paying attention to both the parting and the highlights; with those out of the way, all’s left is a 10/10 style.
21. Blonde Lob with Full Fringe
Despite not having the characteristic smooth look common among the bobs we’ve seen so far, this idea shines, mostly thanks to the full fringe. The slightly shaggy look can also make it alluring for some, making it a uniquely amazing style.
22. Brunette Side-Swept Twist Lob Haircut
I’m not really a bob person, but if I were to suddenly start wearing them, this side-swept look would really catch my fancy. Look closely enough and you’ll see the dimensional look that really makes the style pop.
23. Gray Messy Layered Bob Haircut
Older women already going grey would do better with something like this, as it already emulates their hair’s color and texture. It’s not the elegant bob we’ve seen so far, but if you’re 80, what do you care anywhy?
24. Sleek Straight Lob with Face Framing Layers
Wearing a lob on your natural hair is bold, and in this case of this model, amazing. While some would never, primarily because of frizz and flyaway, this idea is proof that as long as the structure is right, none of those matter.
25. Centre-Parted Straight Shag Haircut
If that frizz and flyaway is what keeps you happy, you may want to go with this centre-parted shag. The textured look is nothing short of amazing, and the centre parting adds extra flair.
26. Blunt Bob and Shaggy Curtain Bangs
You may call this hairstyle wavy, but I call it beautiful. It has that shaggy kind of look to it, and while there’s no clearly defined centre parting, you should see that subtle but amazing centre division.
27. Textured Straight Haircut for Round Face
Adding textures to your hair can give it the kind of face-framing look that makes it excellent for ladies with round face. Driving a parting across the center, like this model, can effectively double its allure.
28. Long Bob with Curtain Bangs for Women with Glasses
This lob uses curtain bangs creatively to create a one-of-a-kind look that pairs excellently with her glasses. I’m also a fan of her hair’s hue; clearly an outstanding medium length haircuts for straight hair.

You don’t have to join the blonde or brunette argument when you can effectively wear both in the same hairstyle. Want a proven way? Make that hairstyle a lob, and see how many compliments you get.
30. Natural Reddish Straight Haircut
This reddish brown look isn’t only great for medium length straight lobs; it’d work for anything that looks adorable naturally. I’m into how uniform it looks, but its uniformity is only one of the several reasons it’s so good.
31. Smoothed Textured Long Bob Haircut
You have to be careful with textures on straight hair; there’s a reason why most styles on this compilation are plain bobs. If you’re sure the texture would work, like this model, then go for it by all means, especially when adding a center parting.
32. Straight Shag Haircut with Fringe Bangs
A shag with bangs is not the world’s commonest hairstyles, but see how adorable it turned out. The dimensional blonde and the full curled bangs also make the style pop; easy 10/10 rating.
33. Straight Razor Shag Haircut with Curtain Bangs
This razor shag doesn’t look very shaggy to me, and maybe that’s because it’s supposed to be razor-sharp. One thing it does look like, however, is an alluring hairstyle, especially with the layered ends and the center parting.
34. Stepped-Layered Shag Haircut with Bangs
If the layers appeal to you, this shag haircut is entirely layered, including its very adorable curtain bangs. I’m also a fan of how the bangs divide to create a parting-like symmetry; it makes the hairstyle uniquely special.
35. Long Straight Shag with Shorter Layers
If you thought that style only looks good in blonde, here’s a model telling you just how wrong you are. It’s almost exactly the same hairstyle, down to the layers, but the brown color makes it like twice more alluring.
36. Straight Lob with Layered Bangs for Square Face
If you’re not exactly into shags, here’s a plain straight lob that beautifully adorns straight face. The layered bangs are also worth replicating; notice how much better they make the style look.
37. Classic Black Lob with Curved Ends
Curved ends are common with bobs and lobs, but this classic black bob takes that to the next level. That, couple with the center parting creates a hard-to-explain uniform look that makes this haircut so glamorous.

This dimensional chopped lob is one of my favorite styles on this compilation, not only for the mixed-colored look, but the volume and center parting are both insanely adorable and hard to replicate.

Balayage color blending never cease to wow me, and that’s exactly what this hairstyle is doing here. How it effortless manages to combine different shades of brown for an exquisite dimensional look remains a mystery, but a replicable one.
