The Cut: Shoulder-Grazing Bob
Celebrity Inspiration: Kendall Jenner
Description: “This is a midlength, or midi bob, that is slightly texturized at the ends and cut so the hair falls at just about the top of the shoulders,” said celebrity stylist Laurie Heaps, who regularly works on Rowan Blanchard, Sabrina Carpenter, and Danielle Fishel. “You can see this texture stand out a bit more when looking at recent paparazzi photos of her hair straightened and flipped out at the ends.
Style It: “The large, loose waves give this cut body and soft movement,” said Heaps. To re-create Kendall’s romantic-meets-modern curls, reach for a jumbo curling iron, such as the Biosilk Titanium 1 1/4″ Spring Iron, to create that larger wave pattern. “Make sure to curl the hair away from the face, focusing on the ends for maximum volume in all the right places.” Finish with a shine spray, such as CHI Rose Hip Oil Color Nurture Dry UV Protecting Oil.
Who It Works For: The textured midi bob gives you the freedom to go short while still allowing you to easily grow your hair out again should you desire. “Shoulder-length hair is actually one of the few universal hairstyles that looks great on any face shape — it’s truly flattering,” said Heaps. One bit of advice, though: make sure your stylist considers the length of your neck when choosing the perfect length. The shorter your neck, the shorter your cut should be, Heaps noted.
