Bob Hairstyles: 12 Short Looks To Try

If you've been considering getting a shorter cut but you just can't let go of your longer locks, don't panic - you probably need a little bob hairstyle inspiration before you decide to go for the chop.

Need persuading? We've found 12 of the best bobs seen on a few of our favourite celebrity ladies (and some are shorter than others, for those who are looking for length options.)


First of all, there are the supermodel styles. Karlie Kloss made cropped hair look so effortless, Beyoncé went and got her long curls cut off in 2013. Her locks are always full of shine and best of all, her do is incredibly elegant. If you were ever in doubt over whether to try out a bob, she's the girl to look to.

Then there are the A-listers. From Marion Cotillard's perfect Parisian chic style to Reese Witherspoon's side-swept, glossy do, the choice from the red carpet is endless.

And if you just want a hassle-free short hairstyle? Look to American actress Camilla Belle or Downton Abbey star, Michelle Dockery. Their wavy low-key looks are totally effortless (and take up a lot less blow-drying time than those longer hairstyles do.)
