What About Bob?

News flash: The Beckham bob (and its many copycats) is on the way out. According to many superstar stylists like Garren, Ted Gibson and Tommy Buckett (who works out of Sally Hershberger and is a personal favorite), collarbone-length hair is where it's at for Fall. While some are going for conservative takes on the length, a la Gwyneth "GOOP" Paltrow, most of the stylists interviewed prefer a choppier version. According to the article, those who went for the power pixie are either growing it out to this length (Anne Hathaway, Jenny McCarthy) or snipping even shorter (like Katie Holmes and Beckham herself). The former is much more universally flattering (and weather appropriate). Will you go for it?

I've had the super short pixie at different stages in the last few years. I think I may go back to it. I love it because it is so easy and I think it looks flattering on me. Longer hair on me makes me look really young.

I did the angled collar bone length bob last fall and the angled shorter bob the fall before that. I did it because I got tired of seeing long hair everywhere. Now, I am just hitting long again.

I love the bob! I cut mine in may, and now it's grown out pretty much exactly like Anne's which makes me very happy because I love her - but I loved my short hair...

Oh dear. I've had a bob for about 6 months now. Am I not with the times? Maybe I should grow it out. I still like it, though... Also, I'm only 17, so it betta not make me look like a soccer mom!

I've been thinking about chopping my hair, but as soon as I get psyched, my Rapunzel complex kicks in.

I am SO glad to see the bob die the death it has so richly earned...As for solutions, I obviously prefer the growing-it-longer approach. Pixie cuts are flattering only on an extremely tiny number of people...

Coincidentally, this is already my haircut (including the waves). Lucky me! For once, I'm totally on top of things.

haha...maybe it's because i have been blessed with wavy, frizzy hair, but i completely consider the time of year when going for a drastic change...i've been growing my hair out for 2 years, after donating it, and am waiting until fall is in full swing here to chop it off again, so i don't have to worry about it being too hot to blow dry...when my hair is longer, it's easier to style or throw up on a day when i'm not in the mood...letting it dry naturally when it's short can be risky :)

I guess if it's cold where you are, a longer hair style might keep you warm, but it's still a strange thing to say.

I think I like her better with her hair just a little bit longer. I'm also wondering about the "weather appropriate" comment? I never really thought of hair as a seasonal thing.

I'm so sick and tired of seeing the graduated bob on everyone and their soccer mom. I got a haircut last week and went with a collarbone length bob and side swept bangs...I can't get away from them...I feel naked without bangs. :) I think the pixie cut is a little severe and risky, but hey, if you can pull it off more power to you.
