Celebrity Hairstyles: 5 of the Best Bobs

February 21, 2014

Bobs are a versatile hairstyle that will take you from the office to brunch with friends with minimal styling. Bobs are one of the most popular celebrity hairstyles, and with so many pixie cuts happening now, expect to see even more celebrity bobs soon. Here are a few bob ideas you may want to try, depending on your hair type and face shape.

Carey Mulligan’s short wispy bob
Carey Mulligan’s square-shaped face makes this layered and slightly curly bob look especially adorable. Her strawberry blonde tresses with golden blonde highlights also gives more definition to the style and compliments the gold and pink undertones in her skin. The bob falls just at the jawline, and the waves and curls of the bob are achieved with a medium-barrel flat iron and pomade to keep the style in place.


Kirsten Dunst’s sleek bob
Kirsten Dunst wears her bob in a bold platinum blonde colour while still showing off her dark roots, which works well for her pale complexion. This style is best for straight hair that has a medium heaviness – not too thick and not too thin. The bob is parted on the side to accentuate her round face and features a side-swept fringe, perfect if you’re growing out a fringe. The end of the bob is cut bluntly to give the style more definition. The bob can look casual with a little serum to get rid of any flyaways, or look more formal by tucking one side of the bob behind the ears and wearing chandelier earrings.

Knightley’s defined cheekbones and oval face make this wavy bob especially flattering. The hairstyle falls at the jawline, and her rich chestnut colour is ideal for warm skin tones. Style your short bob like Keria by asking your hairstylist to cut defined, long layers and creating waves with a large-barrel curling iron. This bob works well on hair that is thin to medium-thickness.bob_rashidajonesRashida Jones’ bob with a fringe
Rashida Jones has a heart-shaped face, which makes a long bob with fringe the perfect style for her. The bob falls just above the shoulders, and her brown hair is highlighted with amber, dark blonde and caramel highlights, so the bob doesn’t fall flat. The bangs aren’t too heavy on the forehead, which helps to frame the face nicely.. This is one of the best bobs for thick and medium-thick hair.bob_alyssamilano

Alyssa Milano’s medium-length bob
The defined layers in Alyssa’s bob hairstyle make it especially attractive if you’re growing out a shorter bob. The hair is parted in the middle to show off the shape of her lovely oval face. The medium brown color of the hair with lighter brown highlights works perfectly for cool skin tones. Style your medium-length bob like Alyssa with a medium-barrel curling or flat iron.Which celebrity has your favourite bob hairstyle?
