Stylecaster called it at the start of the year: the bob is the cool-girl cut of 2017. While the beauty world has displayed a preference for shorter hair in recent years, never has the original bob made a comeback this dominant. Movie star Louise Brooks popularized it in the ’20s—and in Summer 2017, your faves are following suit. Mark our words: at least one girl in your crew will get her hair lopped off! The only question is to what length?

THE SEXY CHIN-LENGTH BOB

This jaw-grazing cut flaunts impeccable bone structure and adds a touch of mystique. On Anne Curtis, it’s equal parts classy and seductive.

THE BLUNT BOB-WITH-BANGS

So sleek it hurts, this razor-sharp cut is made for the minimalist. Liz Uy retires her signature slick-back to accommodate a new fringe.

THE ASYMMETRICAL BOB

The experimental tribe will love Joyce Pring’s bob: a short, piecey style that sweeps dramatically to one side. It’s not for the hesitant, but it’s a truly hot look.

THE LOW-MAINTENANCE LOB

If a super-cropped cut seems intimidating, take baby steps with a long bob. Lobs hit somewhere above or below the collarbones, so you can opt to go shorter or grow things out gracefully. On Mari Jasmine, this soft style is a study in effortlessness.

THE FAUX BOB

When in doubt, wear a wig! We love this Amélie-inspired creation on Pia Wurtzbach, who rocks the bob for a shoot. No wig? Underpin your hair to visualize the bobbed version of yourself. It might just spur you to get the snip.
