Beauty Forecast: The Long Bob

I honestly thought 2013 was going to be the year of the pixie cut; especially if the last few months of 2012 were anything to go by (hello Anne Hathaway and Miley Cyrus!). But alas, I was wrong. We’re only 17 days into the new year, and there have already been a plethora of bob sightings at premieres and award shows. Previously, the bob has been quite structured – and with The Great Gatsby being released this year, this 1920’s inspired cut will no doubt have its time in the spotlight. However, it is the long bob, or the choppy bob, that is currently dominating the red carpet.

The long/choppy bob sits anywhere between just above shoulder length and below the ears. Unlike the pixie cut or the structured bob, the choppy bob is noticeably layered, has a lot of body, and is versatile. This is the perfect cut if you’re craving change but don’t want to do anything too drastic, or if you’re concerned about not being able to do anything with your hair (e.g. you like to pin it away from your face).

Take a look at the pics below and enjoy a little inspiration.

    I think pink lip gloss look better then red. Sometimes red color make the face very old

    I love these hairstyles! I have bob too, which is slowly growing out. It’s hard to curl my hair while it’s short, but I can’t wait to start styling my hair once it’s down to my shoulders 🙂

    I thought the long Bob has been happening for ages. Nicole Richie championed it

    Had my hair cut a few weeks ago into a medium, layered bob and a fringe. Love it. It’s easy to look after and fringe is out of my eyes!

    bobs are good when they are nicely styled, cut or just sit well!

    Wow Michelle Dockery looks amazing with this hairstyle. I’ve been thinking of cutting my hair shorter for ages, but just can’t bring myself to do it.

    I really like this look on some people (especially Olivia Munn!), but I personally wouldn’t cut my hair into a bob.

    I love the long choppy bob – very versatile and flattering. I am struggling to see how picture 5 is a bob though – way too long.

    The ladies in the top row look amazing. I think the bob looks better with a wave/texture to it. But call me crazy, I could never chop my long locks.

  • Reply Flutterly Friday 18th January, 2013 at 11:09 am

    I love the wavy styled bob as it adds dimension to the face.

    Yay! I’m trendy and I didn’t know it.
