If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that 2022 has been a big year for bobs. From the classic bob to the bixie to the boyfriend bob, we’ve seen a crazy amount of bob trends completely take over the hair space—and for good reason. 

Bobs are a universally flattering cut that looks great on nearly every face shape and can work for any hair texture, too. Best of all, they generally require minimal effort and are typically pretty easy to maintain. 

With that being said, there are so many different bobs that are currently trending right now. To help you out, ahead, we’ve narrowed down six bobs that absolutely need to be on your radar.

Boyfriend Bob

For a bob that’s borrowed from the boys, look no further than the boyfriend bob. True to its name, this cut has a more androgynous feel than your classic bob. It has a slightly longer shape that feels almost like a lob, but it’s sharper, blockier, and has more of a blunt cut. Along with being both flattering and wearable, the boyfriend bob is also super versatile with its styling—wear it straight or with a soft wave.

Modern Diana Bob

It may be 2022 currently, but it might as well be the 80s again because the “Diana bob” is back. That’s right, the late Princess Diana’s forever iconic feathered bob is seeing a resurgence but this time around with a slightly more modern twist. This cut is still a simple, square-ish cut that’s heavy on the volume and layers. However, it’s not quite as polished as the cut synonymous with the late royal. The “modern Diana bob” is a whole lot edgier and generally styled in a way that’s more undone—case in point: Kaia Gerber’s bob.

Scandi Bob

Take a cue from our Nordic friends and opt for a no-fuss, low maintenance bob like the “Scandi bob”. A much cooler iteration of the classic bob, the Scandi bob is easy, effortless, and oh so chic—pretty much everything you would associate with Scandi style. Cut just below the jaw line, this bob frames the face and highlights your features. And, as for the secret to nailing this look? It’s all about having a unique flipped parting that adds volume and an edge.

Baby Wave Bob

If you’re looking for a bob that’s easy and breezy, may we introduce you to the baby-wave bob. Made to be styled with a slight curl or wave, this short bob is characterized by a blunt cut with soft, feathered, and face-framing layers  for added texture. What’s great about this bob is that the styling possibilities are truly endless: you can wear it with a little curl or transition it to a sleeker look.

Boyband Bob

Brace yourselves, everyone: the boy band bob is back (alright!). First popularized by ‘90s heartthrobs like Leonardo DiCaprio and Backstreet Boys’ very own Nick Carter, this chin-grazing cropped bob has made quite the comeback this season. Shorter than your typical bob, but with longer, cheekbone-grazing pieces, the boy band bob requires minimal styling and is wonderfully versatile.

Bottleneck Bob

What do you get when you combine two of the biggest hair trends of the year? Enter: the bottleneck bob. A mash-up of bottleneck bangs and the shaggy bob, this bob takes inspo from the neck of a bottle, starting slim and short in the middle and then long following the cheekbone. Thanks to the added fringe, this shoulder-baring cut adds a bit of softness to your face and draws attention to your eyes. The best part is that not only is this cut ultra flattering, but it also grows out really nicely.
