If you’re thinking about embracing a shorter hairstyle, there’s no better time than now to take the plunge and give your hair a much needed makeover! Not only is a bob hairstyle extremely versatile, but they are super-easy to style and don’t require nearly as much attention when compared to long hair.
Below are just a few celebrity hairstyles we’ve picked out which should serve as sufficient inspiration if you’re ever inclined to chop your hair!
One of our favourite shorter hairstyles is inspired by Frankie Sanford, pop-singer from the British girl band, The Saturday’s. Not only is Frankie’s hair easy to style, but the shorter bangs at the front allow you to create a number of different looks.
Back in 2006, Sienna Miller chopped her long blonde locks in favour of a shorter hairstyle to play the lead part of Edie Sedgewick in Factory Girl. More than eight years later, and Sienna has yet again chopped her hair into this super-flattering style.
Go for wispy bangs to frame a square shaped face, and cut hair shorter in the back for added texture.
Otherwise known as the long bob, is perfect for girls who still want to keep a bit of length in their hair. This style sits above the shoulders, and usually sports a blunt haircut for added drama.
Host and reality television star, Giuliana Rancic wears the lob with long layers, but you can also cut a fringe to make the hairstyle look less harsh.
The ombré bob
Singer Ciara has transformed her hair into a super-short ombré bob right in front of our eyes! This style works perfectly from dark to light hair, since highlights are hand-painted on the ends for a gradient look. Go for a short chop (just under the ears), to create the illusion of texture in thin hair.
