The allure of the long bob has been getting to me the past few months. At first, it started as just a twinge of interest, but lately it’s becoming a more serious obsession. The main reason I love the look? It’s not as dramatic as Miley’s wannabe P!nk pixie cut and it’s not as conventional as the long-haired look.
The long bob still allows you to explore tons of styling options (as opposed to confining shorter cuts–I’m talking to you Anne Hathaway) and you can get it into a ponytail or top bun without a gallon of hairspray and an army of bobby pins. See? So versatile. Never thought of myself as a short hair girl but I’m starting to be tempted!
Additionally, the cut is long enough that it is still suitable for different hair types. You can wear the long bob curly, straight, or with beach waves.
Following long bob predecessors like Julianne Hough, Giuliana Rancic, and supermodel Karlie Kloss, pop culture hero Jennifer Lawrence joined the club this week when she debuted a light, curly long bob at the GLAAD awards. J. Law looks awesome and of course every fashion magazine approves; which pretty much means that shorter haircuts are going to take over the summer. Sooner or later I’m going to have to decide if I’m going to be on that band wagon.
