The B is Back

I want to talk about the bob for a minute. The bob – long, short and everything in between – has made a comeback in the hair world lately. Everywhere you look, whether it’s in pop culture or everyday real life, girls are opting to have their hair chop-chopped into a new, fresh, cropped style. I am one of those girls (who is taking baby-steps and currently has an “extra-extra-long bob” … okay it doesn’t really count as a bob but I’m getting there!).

I’m not the only one with shorter locks these days – check out all these celebs who are rocking it too!

Some are wearing their bob classic and short:

Some are opting for a ‘lob’ – a long bob:

So why are women everywhere flocking to salons to have their hair chopped? Is it for the arguably simpler maintenance? I for one have had to use way less shampoo and conditioner now that I’ve had 8 inches cut off, and brushing is so much easier. Or maybe it’s related to the newly revived feminist movement in the past couple of years – spearheaded (at least in the pop-culture world) by short-haired Emma Watson. The 20’s bob is after all a tell-tale symbol of female emancipation.

Whatever the reason, it’s happening – the bob is taking over. The results? We’re loving it.
