The bob is a classic hairstyle that will always be in fashion for its simple elegance and timeless appeal. If you have a bob then you’ve made a great decision because your hairstyle is easy to manage but will always look perfectly styled (assuming you keep up with your regular trims and colours of course!), and it will match pretty much whatever fashion style you are trying to pull off. From punk to prim, there is a bob for every look!
Always a favourite on the red carpet, the classic bob is one of the most popular shorter hairstyles for celebrities. Here is a round up of some bobs, straight from the red carpet. Who gets your vote for Best Bob?
Brooklyn Decker has a great bob for spring and summer. This mid-neck length bob has blunt edges and soft waves throughout that give it a cool beachy vibe. Brooklyn has a grown out fringe which she pairs with a deep side part for an effortlessly chic look, and her tousled waves give this bob a hint of city chic at the same time. This bob is perfect for women with oval, heart, oblong and round face shapes. Squares can also pull this off with some layering throughout the ends to take out the blunt edges.
Tia Mowry looks so sophisticated in her sleek bob here. Her shoulder length bob is slightly shorter at the back, which works well with her super straight and sleek hair texture. A grown out fringe and side part is all that is needed to perfect this simple ‘do that is timeless and elegant. This hairstyle would work well on all face shapes.
And for something on the curly side, check out January Jones’ shoulder length bob. Her blonde locks look fabulous in this bob, which has been parted in the center and curled in ringlets throughout. This ‘do will work great with naturally curly and wavy hair as well as straight hair textures. January’s light blonde hair colour matches this fun and girlie hairstyle, which can also be tied half up or all the way up for added versatility. This ‘do will suit all face shapes nicely too.
Regina King goes for a classic pageboy bob here with gorgeous results. Her straight hair looks glossy and chic in this chin length bob that has been layered throughout to ends to give it a rounded, sculpted finish. This particular bob, with its straight across fringe and jaw length finish, would particularly suit oval and heart face shapes, as well as some round faces too. Squares and oblongs are best to avoid this look as it will give them a boxy appearance.
And finally, we have Nicole Kidman in a beautiful shoulder length bob that has lots of body and volume throughout. Instead of going for a straight sleek look, Nicole has opted for airy layers and a soft finish instead. This look can be created by using a root boosting mousse on wet hair and then blow-drying it with a large round brush. This hairstyle would suit oval, heart and square face shapes nicely.
