You, with a blunt cut bob, smiles all round. The 90s chop is still reigning supreme, and I am thrilled (so is Lucy Hale, FYI). No layers, no graduation, no added texture, just a straight up cut. The low-maintenance, every day, straight out of bed chop that was born around twenty years ago ticks that ‘no effort made’ box, well, effortlessly.
Is it right for you? Most definitely. The style works on any hair texture – the shape may just need a little direction. For finer hair, mousse scrunched into wet locks will add texture to the root, while curl cream or hair oil is a good call for naturally curly hair, to weigh down the bounce and add extra shine.
Whether you’re embracing the chop to deal with split ends, or you’re craving a nineties hair revival (without the discomfort of those stretchy crocodile hair bands), this is the style to go for. Bobs have come a long way – lob, wob, sob, it’s complicated – so head to your hairdresser with an army of inspiration pics. Like these ones right here.
