Hot 2013 Hair Trend – The Bob

The classic bob hair style has been around for a long time and while it can vary slightly, the basic style elements remain the same. Falling between the chin and shoulders in length with a strong emphasis on the ends (blunt, textured, etc), the bob is a flattering style for many. In 2012, many celebrities tried out the bob cut including Cameron Diaz, Dianna Agron and Karlie Kloss. For 2013, the bob is set to continue to be a strong hair trend with celebrities and the public trying out the timeless look for themselves. 

When most people think of a bob cut, they tend to think of a short, chin length cut. For 2013, the bob hair style will be popular in a variety of lengths from the jaw line to the shoulders. Popular styles right now include bobs with and without bangs as well as mid-length, slightly tousled bobs.   

Is the bob the right cut for you? It depends. Most women can successfully carry the style, but because bobs can sometimes be dramatic, a hair stylist will be your best guide in determining a flattering one for your face type. Check out the popular video below from Arrojo Education featuring a classic, layered bob cut.
