The Best Celebrity Bobs
Kiss goodbye to long locks, it’s all about the shorter, edgier chin-skimming crop now. Whether it’s a classic chin-length bob, or the ever-fashionable lob (long bob), shorter hair has never looked so chic.
From Jenna Dewan’s post-breakup chop (FYI, she’s never looked better), to Zoeey Deschanel eschewing her signature long brunette locks in favour of a shorter, chic hairstyle (she still has the fringe, don’t worry) and Vanessa Hudgens’ boho beach vibe length, the brunette celebrities show is how to perfect the bob.
Hopping over to the blonde camp recently has been former brunette Leighton Meester, who debuted a striking platinum blonde dyed bob on Instagram this month, and lest us not forget when Margot Robbie went for the chop earlier this year and stunned fans with her slick new, shorter ‘do.
If you’re considering a fresh look for the new year, a trip to the salon might be just what you need, let our pick of the best celeb shorter hairstyles inspire you to go for the chop, and ‘lob it all off’.
The last few years it’s been all about the lob, but just like the season’s fashion trends, the times are a-changing with hair lengths. This season it’s all about the fresh, choppy chin-length bob. Everyone from Selena Gomez to Lucy Hale have been at it.
So if you’re thinking of getting a fresh new look for summer (or already have a short ‘do and are tempted to chop a few more inches off) – step this way…
We asked TONI&GUY’s International Artistic Director Efi Davies to explain why this style is great for anyone, any age:
WHY YOU SHOULD GET THIS CUT
“This cut looks great on almost all hair types and textures and can be tailored to flatter any face shape. No matter your hair-type, there is a bob for you. Wear bangs? Great. No Fringe? That’s cool, too.
WHAT TO ASK FOR AT THE SALON
My top tip is if your hair is thick, ask for more texture by incorporating layers, as seen on Selena Gomez. On the other hand, if your hair is fine ask for a blunt cut to give an impression of thickness.
We have seen a real increase in demand for short hair, from the buzz cut to bobs just like this. With Selena being popular amongst the younger generation, I predict we will see a real shift in demand for long hair to bobs/lobs amongst the younger folk. ”
HOW TO FRESHEN UP YOUR EXISTING BOB
“The options are endless when you want to update your style – the bob looks gorgeous straight, curled, up, down etc.
If it were up to me, the best way to style a bob is to do nothing at all – just like Selena in this gorgeously natural snap!”
