9 Bob Haircuts to Inspire Your Next Chop


There’s no denying that the bob has been one of the hottest hair trends this year. Also known as the chic “carré” haircut in French, the bob has seduced celebrities around the globe, including Hailey Bieber, Gigi Hadid, and Sydney Sweeney. Opting for a shorter length can instantly refresh hair if you’re looking for a change and will improve the health of your hair too. Let’s take a look at the 9 most sought-after styles for the summer.

The Mermaid Bob


This dreamy option features relaxed waves to give it a mermaid feel. Keep the texture soft and the overall style undone for the most flattering finish.

This Mediterranean bob is a longer and more relaxed version of the style. Named the “Italian bob,” it requires a lot of root volume, works well when worn with a side parting, and is preferably air-dried and styled with fingers to avoid looking too polished.

The Emo Bob


The grungiest option that takes its style cue from a more gothic look, the emo bob leaves no room for frills. Think: super-straight hair separated by a clean parting for a more structured, sleek finish.

The Glamorous Bob

The Mob Bob

The most technical style, the appeal of the “bubble” bob lies in the volume it adds to hair. The art of mastering and blow drying is therefore a must in order to copy the perfect roundness of a soap bubble, which shows off the bone structure in your face—part of the reasons why it’s become so popular.

The most popular bob for summer, this windswept, sea salty, beachy bob is perfect for relaxed, sun-kissed holidays with incredible sunsets to show off the summery style.

The Sleek Bob


The sleek bob is possibly the easiest and most carefree bob in the line-up as it requires hair to be left as natural as possible. Rough dry to allow for hair to take its own shape and leave it imperfect and carefree.
