The bob is having a big moment, but will it last? We say yes, because it’s a versatile style that can easily be tailored to suit any type of hair. Case in point: Do you have super-thick locks? Extend the cut’s classic length out a few inches and sport a lob. Hair on the thinner side? Keep it short—blunt is best—and throw in some long bangs if you’re feeling daring (and it makes sense with your face shape). However you wear it, one thing’s for sure: This cut’s a chameleon. It’s able to adapt to any hair environment you put it in, and it always takes on a unique shape of its own.
One of our favorite bob styles—and there are many!—is the asymmetrical bob. Check out the 18 photos below and see how each cut takes the classic silhouette and puts a trendy, fresh spin on it.
1. Bey’s Bob: Off-Kilter and On Point
All rise for the Queen: When Beyoncé lopped off her locks in 2013 and stepped out wearing this edgy ‘do, the world took notice. Thankfully this look is still just as in now as it was then. The natural waves lend even more interest to an already intriguing style, and her color, lighter than she typically wears it, make heads turn.
