The bob: The hottest hairstyle of 2016…

118 images

Bob hairstyles are seriously hot. With celebrity fans including Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift, we're predicting that the bob is about to become your hairstyle of choice.

They look chic, can be styled in countless different ways, and bob hairstyles have got a huge A-list following. Tempted, much?

There’s also the added bonus of the diverse bob options out there. There’s the classic chin skimming bob of course, but also more modern iterations such as the Lob, aka a slightly longer, grown out bob, and the current A-lister favourite, the wob; a tousled, wavy bob with a laid-back, bohemian feel.

So if you are thinking of going for the hottest hairstyle of the moment, take style inspiration from the most fabulous celebrity bob hairstyles out there.

There’s Jennifer Lawrence’s long blonde chop, perfect if you don’t want to go too short straight-off, and ideal for creating beachy waves come summer.

Coco Rocha’s precise Gatsby-style crop is another front runner, which frames her face perfectly for pristine, polished glamour.

Karlie Kloss is a fabulous example of how versatile a grown-out choppy bob can be. From waves and slicked back styles to topknots, plaits and up-dos, she’s an endless source of short hairstyle inspiration.

One of the biggest hair transformation of the year so far has to be Miranda Kerr and her luscious brunette bob. Full of health and super shiny, Miranda’s locks have reaped the benefits of a chop, and looks spectacular paired with a bright red lip for maximum glam effect.

If that wasn’t enough, there are plenty more to inspire! From Kate Hudson’s short sun-kissed waves and Rihanna’s glossy chin-length ‘do, to Taylor Swift’s super short new locks, the bob is firmly taking over as the hairstyle of the year.

Thinking of getting the chop? Check out Marie Claire’s round-up of the best A-list brunette and blonde bob hairstyles, old and new. This season might just be the perfect time to embrace the super-chic trend…

First up, Alexa Chung styled her bob into loose waves for her night out at the CFDA Awards in NYC in June 2016.
