The Bob is the Biggest Hair Trend of 2023 So Far


Move over, long hair—the bob is having a moment. Although extreme length has certainly been all the rage, as we’ve seen a major influx of extensions amongst celebrities, the trending hairstyle right now is a complete 180. It seems as though each day a new celebrity is chopping their hair and taking on a version of the classic bob look. 

Although some may consider a bob to be a drastic change and an intimidating style, it does not have to be. Anyone can rock a bob — the key is finding a style and shape that  works well for your face. If you want to jump on this bold look, here are a few of our favorite celebrity bobs to bring as inspiration to your next hair appointment! 

Idina Menzel: Box Bob 

Celebrity hair stylist Paul Norton absolutely nailed the bob cut on Idina Menzel. Norton gave Menzel a boxy bob, all at a blunt chin length. He also styled it with high volume beachy curls, using Hot Tools and Unite Hair products. 

Lily Allen: Blunt Bob

Stylist Lena Ott transformed Lilly Allen’s classic dark hair into a strawberry blonde blunt bob last week, and we are living for it. With a sharp side part and jaw-length hair, Allen is absolutely stunning in this chic do. 

Hailey Bieber: Boyfriend Bob

“It- girl” Hailey Bieber has also recently hopped on the bob bandwagon. Stylist Irinel de León nailed the brunette boyfriend bob look on Bieber. The look is edgy and modern— a perfect formula for anyone searching to radiate cool girl energy through their hair. 

Lizzo: Shaggy Bob 

With the caption “ITS GIVING BOBBIANA💇🏽”, Lizzo debuted her new short hair last week. The singer’s longtime stylist, Shelby Swain, transformed her  look with a glam curly bob. The style is also accompanied with cool toned highlights and bangs. 

Emily Ratajkowski: French Bob 

Emily Ratajkowski has nearly always kept her hair the same, pulling off a signature medium-length dark brown hairstyle with soft layers. However, recently, she premiered an extremely dramatic hair transformation at the Marc Jacobs Runway show in New York. The cut is chic and certain to only increase the popularity of the already massive bob trend.
