lob had its moment last year, but a new year calls for a new style, right? Well, if Beyoncé, Emma Watson, and Nicole Richie are any indication, the classic bob is poised to take over as the new haircut supreme. The great part about this style is its versatility, as you can tailor it to your own personal style. Looking for a classic shape? Keep it short in the back and a bit longer in the front. Want something with a little more edge? Have one side longer than the other. The possibilities are limitless. Now, flip through our list of celebrity inspiration to find your perfect style.
