Whether it is ear-length or brushing your collarbone, straight or wavy, the bob is still making heads turn. “I’m a fan of a short, round, ear-grazing bob with longer locks in front, which was inspired by ’90s boy bands,” says Yannick Brisebois, hairstylist and co-owner of Salon U Boutique and brand ambassador for La Biosthétique Paris. Model Kaia Gerber was an early adopter of the trend, as was actor Brigitte Lundy-Paine from the Netflix series Atypical. Its main appeal? It requires minimal styling after washing, no matter your hair texture. If you’re not quite ready to adopt this shorter 2.0 version of the style—inspired by the likes of Nick Carter and Leonardo DiCaprio—Brisebois suggests opting for a longer wavy bob, which is achieved by “creating waves with a flatiron and then tousling with a texturizing spray.” Other great hair tools? A blow-dryer brush to smooth out locks while adding volume, a shampoo that imparts maximum shine and a styling cream to structure the bob while giving it flexibility.
