BEAUTY BAR: The Famous Bob

It seems like every time a short hairstyle becomes a trend, it’s in the summer. Yet, who can blame celebs like Rachel McAdams and Rosamund Pike, who have been rocking the short hair and staying fabulous in the summer sun? This Fashionista is proving that the bob is a force to be reckoned with. The chin-length style started in the 1920s and has since then proven to be versatile and timeless.

The great thing about this hairstyle is that it can complement any outfit whether it’s straight, wavy or curly. I love how this Fashionista styled her bob with her naturally tight, flaxen curls. The curls make her flowing top and very trendy long hem denim shorts more summery and flirty; it’s perfect for that summertime heat as it is super easy to customize. No matter the style, it’s a fashion-forward contribution to any outfit. Depending on how you style it, a bob can either be sultry and sweet or edgy and ever-changing.

A well-styled bob can turn the somewhat boyish look that is short hair into an ultra-feminine accessory of fashion. Take Anna Wintour, for example—her signature coiffed cut is the epitome of elegance and sophistication. And who could forget Victoria Beckham’s iconic angled bob? It’s pristine polished looks like these that made us first fall in love with bobs and put our own twist on it.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: I’ve tried it and learned that the bob isn’t for every face shape, but if you feel like you just can’t deal with hair in your face, it’s a great hairstyle to manage. Ask your hairstylist for choppy layers toward the back and a little layering in the front, as well as a simple side part to get this Fashionista’s classic look. A little hairspray never hurt anybody and try curly girl hair products to keep the frizz at bay.
