It seems that the definition of a “bob” no longer includes a precise length. While the long bob remains popular, shorter looks are increasingly gracing instagram profiles and red carpets. The shorter bob, for example, has won the hearts of singer Dua Lipa, actress Bruna Marquenzine and influencer Jade Seba.

Stylish yet practical, this versatile cut works with curly hair, a fringe and in any shade. The short bob usually stops above the shoulders but can have several finishes from layered to blunt, symmetrical to statement. For those who have never tried short hair, we suggest shortening locks gradually until you’ve found the look you want – be it a long bob, a short bob or even a pixie cut.
