The Bob

Definition: The Bob

Originating in the 1920s, the bob is a short, blunt, and classic hairstyle in which the weight of the hair falls between the ears and chin. It can be styled with or without bangs and in various lengths, but a proper bob never grows past the shoulders.

Below are photographs depicting many different modern bobs. Kate Bosworth wears a classic-length one blunt-cut bob, Christina Ricci wears a shorter, more manicured Louise Brooks bob, Rihanna dons a top-heavy pageboy bob, and Jenny McCarthy wears the ever-popular angled bob. Which contemporary bob do you favor?
