There’s a haircut that looks good on everyone, and we’re not talking about your typical face-framing layers. We expressed our love for long bobs just last week, and now this versatile cut is popping up on red carpets all over Hollywood. First, Emma Roberts chopped off her Rapunzel locks. Now both Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz are walking around with newly shorn hair. Will other stars soon follow suit? We vote yes.
In our opinion, shoulder-length bobs are universally flattering for a few reasons. They create the illusion of extra volume by getting rid of all that extra hair weighing you down. And if you’re convinced the look belongs to soccer moms, consider a funky spin on the traditional cut. The trick to modernizing the bob is adding swoopy side bangs and lots of beachy waves with a curling iron and a texturizing spray like this one from Oribe. Finish with a few drops of a smoothing serum on your ends, and you’ll be ready to join the ranks of Tinseltown.
