Getting That Hollywood Glam With A Bob

The bob hairstyle is in these days. In fact, many celebrities have been parading their bob hairstyles like Katie Holmes, Victoria Beckham and Nicole Ritchie. Bobs are slowly getting their way back to fashion indeed.

For many decadeds now, bobs have actually been around. This started during the 20s when women became more liberated. During this era, women became more daring and they expressed themselves in many ways including cutting their hair short. Those with bobs tended to be more confident because of its stylish and sophisticated look. In this era, this hairstyle is a way for women to show that they can be considered equal to men and to show that they take pride in the new freedom that they are enjoying.

Today, bobs are still very much in vogue, although their connection with freedom might be remote. Are you thinking of getting a bob hairstyle? Here are a few celebrities who wear them and pick out a few ideas.

Katie Holmes

There are two things that you have to consider to get this hairstyle. First, you need to have really straight hair so if you have those curls or waves, get them straightened by a hairstylist using a hair iron. Second, tell your hairstylist to cut your hair along the length or contours of your jaw such that your hair ends up looking like it’s hugging your face from the jaw upwards. Make sure that you have your hair layered to the shape of your face and the back part should be a little shorter.

Gwyneth Paltrow

If you have a square shaped jaw line like Gwyneth Paltrow, a bob hairstyle can look good on you as well. Long bobs can be flattering to all facial structures and you can try it by having your hair straightened first (if you have waves or curls) before getting it cut shoulder length or enough that it touches your clavicle.

Nicole Ritchie

A long bob with sweet side swept bangs will surely look good on any facial shapes, just like Nicole Ritchie. By cutting your hair up to the base of your neck, you can easily get this. Your bangs which should be eye-level should be swept to one side.

Chelsea Hobbs

Hers is much like Katie Holmes’ bob but is softer on the edges and with longer bangs which shouldn’t be thick but layered with less volume. The length goes just below the jaw line but with subtle layering.

Though this hairstyle is famous for celebrities, you can still pull this off. Go and get the best bob for you, feel the sophistication that these celebrities enjoy.
