In this compilation, we’ll show you no less than 50 gray bob hairstyles to help guide you in the process of getting one for yourself. Without more ado, let’s jump in.
Gray Bob Hairstyles
Your gray bob hairstyles doesn’t have to look like a grandma’s hairstyle. These ideas will show you the best gray bob hairstyles to inspire yours.
1. Classic Gray Long Bob Haircut
Young admirers of gray bobs would want their hairstyles to have elements that show their young age. Seniors replicating this volume and length are few and far between, making this classic gray lob an impressive one for younger ladies.
2. Gray Chin Length Bob
If you’re a senior, however, this chin-length bob should hit home for you. For one, it requires no unnecessary coloring or stretching, and the chin length shouldn’t require any attachments. No doubt, it’s one impressive gray bob hairstyle idea for seniors.
3. Gray Bob with Bangs
This dark gray bob uses organic coloring, in case you’re into that type of thing. Looking away from the color, however, the amazing curved look for the oval shape is pretty impressive, and the scanty bangs completely blow my mind away.
4. Simple Gray Bob for Women over 70
This silvery gray bob is another adorable way for older women to wear lobs, and I love it for that. The bob itself is simple with no bells and whistles, but compared to most hairstyles on seniors, it’s pretty top-tier.

Long bobs are good, but not necessary for an alluring look, as you can see here. This short gray bob with a side parting does enough to put itself on this list and my ‘hairstyles to-do’ list.

Here’s another alluring artificial gray textured bob hairstyle, but this time, with a bit blacker highlights. Even if you’re not a fan of artificial gray, you just have to admit this hairstyle looks dope.
10. Super Sexy Gray Bob with Dimensional Tones and Undercut
If you have a couple of hours to spend at a hairstylist, this smoky gray bob with dimensional tones and an undercut sounds like the perfect hairstyle for you. I don’t imagine many people would be getting this as a casual hairstyle, and if you aren’t, it’s perfectly worthwhile.
11. Messy Gray Bob Haircut for Older Women
Messy bobs are an emerging new trend, and you can combine them with the gray color to create a unique and adorable blend. It’s not the prettiest hairstyle for older women in this compilation, but that’s not what you’re looking for in an everyday style.
12. Flawless Chic Gray Bob Haircut
Styles like this have a function in the compilation, as they prove that gray bobs aren’t only for seniors. While I wouldn’t exactly describe it as flawless, I think it looks good enough to be perfect; easily a 10/10 from me.

Most of the grays we’ve seen so far are dark, but how do light grays look on bobs? It seems they don’t look bad, or let’s say they look pretty good. The one eye covering is another aspect of the hairstyle I admire, but wouldn’t necessarily get.
16. Fringy Shaggy Gray Bob for Old Women
Getting a shaggy bob from a senior’s hair is like getting omelets; it’s pretty effortless. Despite the low effort, the shaggy gray bob looks naturally adorable on the model, as it only accentuates her natural texture.
17. Mixed Tone Chin Length Bob Cut
