Summer’s all about keeping things light, airy, and fresh, especially when the weather starts to heat up. To match your hair to the season, you’ll want a look that fits in with any type of summer day—picnic days, beach trips, barbeques, and nine-to-fives included. Like this, for example:
What you’re looking at is the “wob,” shorthand for wavy bob, and surely the chicest cut you’ll see this summer. With its heat-friendly length and Instagrammable texture, the wob strikes the perfect balance between high fashion and low maintenance. It’s already taken social media by storm, and we predict it’s going to be the hairstyle for the hot months.
Below, some celeb wob inspo + 5 salons where you can get the look!
Anne Curtis’ shoulder-skimming wob is a study in keeping things casual. With its piecey waves, this tousled look is equal parts polished and playful.
Kim Jones elevates the classic French bob with more texture and baby bangs. Her wob definitely serves up that model-off-duty vibe.
The wob works for many face shapes, including round ones! Case in point: Angelica Panganiban’s take, which features sleek, side-swept waves.
Erich Gonzales warms up her wob with a rich chestnut shade. The color brings out her eyes, while the barely-there waves add just enough oomph.
Sue Ramirez’s wob is the curliest in the bunch, and we can’t get enough of it! Shout-out to the dimension in her buttery blonde hair color—we love the way it highlights her tan.
