Trend Alert: The Louise Brooks Bob

I can only imagine the joy that Anna Wintour must be feeling now that her signature haircut is setting trends. As they say, fashion, beauty, and history are cyclical and this time around, Anna is ahead of the game. This hairstyle is sometimes called the pageboy, and its first swell of popularity started with actress Louise Brooks.

This short, chic style especially flatters those with round and square face shapes. I wonder how long this trend will last, but with Katie Holmes and Mary J. Blige on the bandwagon, something tells me more A-listers will follow suit soon.

Seraphim - I like your style. I have this cat picture on my kitchen wall (couple of years now) and I'm not a cat person, I'm a bird person but my hubby found this online and I thought it was the cutest cat pic ever. And yes it does look like those bob haircuts. Totally hysterical! Thank you.

Okay, Serphim, that is hilarious!! I've seen that picture before and now I won't be able to think of anything else either. Katie's hair looks like it's eating her face - I'm not a fan of it on her.

What was the little girl's name on "The little Rascals" that alway's had that haircut, oh yeah, it was "Darla". They are all Darla knock-offs, meow

Wow! Seraphim, that is the funniest cat picture I have ever seen, I clicked on your link and almost busted a gut laughing, I scared the crap out of my cat and dog, both of them laying peacefully at my feet, are now on the other side of the house wondering what possessed their mom. Your right though, I'll never look at another bob haircut and not immediately see that picture of the cat. Thanks for my laugh of the day, meow

what i think is that side bangs trend is starting to go away and choppy straight bangs are cool. AND bobs are still cool so people are combining the two into this. i dont think i would go so far as to say that the bob/bangs thing is the main fashion.

Katie's look is cute, but I really don't care so much for the other two. Maybe a slightly longer version....I'm just not sure!

Yukky! Not feminine at all. Reminds me of the Dutch Boy Paints boy.

Usually this look makes a woman look years younger, but this makes Katie Holmes 10 years older.
