What's Your Take on the Bob?

What's Your Take on the Bob?

When Posh chopped her long locks into an angular platinum bob, she was a trendsetter. When Katie Holmes quickly copycatted the style, the bob craze was officially in full swing. And now Jenny McCarthy has updated hers by adding blunt bangs. I think it is a great cut for certain face shapes, but definitely not for everyone or every hair type. How do you all feel about the bob? Are you still into it, or are you over it?

The bob has been around for nearly a century. It's classic and has never really gone out of style. I like the modern, angled variations with layering and shorter length in the back and very little or no layers in the front, which is how I often cut my own hair. It works well for my thin and fine, straight hair.

I hate it and I think it makes you look like a toddler or a soccer mom. Not a good look. I've never been a fan and I don't think many people can pull it off.

BTW, I thought Jenny McCarthy's bob was much cuter/more flattering pre-bangs.

On the right person, a bob can be adorable and really bring out their features. Even though the style is pretty ubiquitous at the moment, I still think it's much more unique and stylish than standard long hair.

its cool, but its hard to stand out with it in the masses of mini-poshes and rihannas unless you have a stand out style from the get go.

I like the bob I personally think it works well for a few people. Now people are starting to have it because it is a trend, which is ok but I think it would be better to get a style that fits a persons face.

I'm over it. I got a bob last spring and right now I'm just trying to grow it out. It's too expensive for me to keep it up and I don't have time for the upkeep. I'd rather just shower and let my hair dry naturally than have to style every time.

I love it. It suits my face and makes me look way younger than when I had my hair all the way down to my waist! It's easy to take care of and fun to play with.

The bob is my favorite classic hair style.

Not trying to be negative, but, unless you have kickin' style to go with it, I'd be concerned about the kind of men hitting on lassies with child-like bob's!

I'm SOOOO sick of Katie Holmes. She has hair like her baby but wears clothes of a 60 to 80-something. What gives, Katie!?!?! McCarthy and Holmes are more flapper 20's. {Ahem}, I looked like Katie Holmes in kindergarten!

I chose over it, but I was never actually into it. Not my cup of tea at all, and looks terrible on my wavy hair- it just gets big and shapeless. Works with straight hair and small features.

love it. hey if anna wintour can wear it year after year it has to be a classic :P i have poofy curly semi-afro hair so it doesn't work for me, but i do have a couple of cute bob wigs that i love to break out when i'm too lazy to deal with the curls!

I think Posh´s cut is ugly, but Katie´s cute.... But none of them are for me, really.

I just got one because well...I really need to stop going to the salon when I'm stressed out!! I've had so many "just cut it all off" moments over the years. I went from middle of back to chin-length in an hour. It's cute but I'm still recovering so the verdict is still out for me!
