21 Celebrity Bob Hairstyles That Will Convince You To Make The Cut

ICYMI, the bob is the official hairstyle of 2019. More and more celebs are opting for the short style this season, and it's easy to see why. Whether you wear it wavy or style it super-sleek, the cut is versatile and can easily be customized so that it flatters your facial features. There's also a bob hairstyle that works with every hair texture, whether it's straight, curly or somewhere in between.

Thinking of reaching for the scissors? Take inspiration from Hollywood's hottest stars who have embraced the chop this year. Sure, it might seem scary to cut off so much length, especially if it's an entirely new look for you, but as demonstrated by these leading ladies, there are lots of ways to ease into it. Try adding a few layers for choppy texture or going for a longer bob (aka the “lob”) a la Reese Witherspoon.
