A bob hairstyle is quite possibly the most classic look you can opt for, but that doesn't mean it can't feel cool and modern. The joy is that this hairstyle is timeless. The fact that Natalie Portman's 2003 flapper-style bob doesn't look outdated helps prove the point. The great thing about a bob is that when cut right, it can suit most hair types and face shapes. Take a look through our gallery for the 10 bob hairstyles we're totally obsessed with right now (singer Kacy Hill's in particular), and be prepared to feel a twang of Ooh, I want a haircut.
Curls can look great in a bob too, as proven by poet Cleo Wade—just ask your stylist to cut your hair when it's dry so you don't go shorter than you planned.
There's something a little old-fashioned and wholesome about Zooey Deschanel's flick-ended bob. And for that sort of shine—it must be the work of a hardy hair serum.
On paper, the triangle shape of singer Kacy Hill's bob doesn't work, but IRL it's epic. We're drawn to the short blunt fringe and fiery colour too.
The soft fringe, simple ear tuck and flicked ends make for a seriously good fringe hairstyle.
See, Natalie Portman's 2003 bob still looks so cool. You can wear it sleek, or muss it up with texturising spray. Tempted?
We love how modern a bob hairstyle can look, especially if your hair is naturally wavy.
Don't let anyone tell you that if you have curly hair you can't wear it short. Just ensure your hairdresser is well versed working with curls and cuts it dry. If cutting it wet, make sure it's longer so when it's dried it doesn't jump up too short.
Kristen Stewart's shaggy bob has a grungy '90s vibe to it. Love.
