Long Bobs: 12 Of The Best Celebrity Styles

When it comes to manageable hair, there's one length in particular that beats all the others hands down - the long bob.

It's not too short to stop you from experimenting with interesting updos and it's not so long it takes you an age to blow dry in the morning.

The lengthy version of a bob is always chic, it can be worn straight or wavy and works with every type of outfit - which is probably why this versatile style has also become one of the most popular looks in Hollywood this year.


Karlie Kloss and Emily Blunt have both recently grown out their crops in favour of shoulder-sweeping hair and even Jennifer Lawrence - the queen of the pixie crop - has been seen with a longer look more recently.

Meanwhile, other leading ladies like Jennifer Connelly and Jessica Alba have been strong supporters of mid-length styles for years.

Want some inspiration before you add a few inches to your bob or perhaps you're planning to lose your longer locks for the summer months? Take a look below to see 10 of the best celebrity long bobs:
