2. Chin bob with a soft fringe like Park Eun Bin’s

Following the popularity of Extraordinary Attorney Woo, this bob hairstyle sported by the titular character played by Park Eun-Bin has definitely gained newfound fame among K-drama fans. This is a classic bob cut with a soft rounded edge matched with wispy fringes to prevent the look from looking like a helmet. This is perfect if you want a chic ‘do that’s easy to maintain.

3. Blunt long bob with a full fringe like BLACKPINK’s Lisa’s

If you prefer to still have some length to your bob hairstyle, this look similar to BLACKPINK’s Lisa’s will give you the best of both worlds. This hairstyle is blunt and is a lot more angular, giving the wearer an edgier but still sophisticated look. It’s great for people who like to sport a shorter hairstyle but would still be able to tie their hair up if they prefer to.

4. Volumised bob with a hanging side fringe like Billie Eilish’s

Bob hairstyles are often associated with vintage inspirations like the 1920s flapper look, the 1950s pin-up aesthetic, or the 1960s Hollywood golden glam era. At present, celebrities like Billie Eilish combine certain elements of these vintage hairstyles and sport a volumised bob with a hanging side fringe for an elegant and classy look. The hairstyle champions body and shape and frames the eyes.

5. Shaggy layers like Miley Cyrus’

Another bob hairstyle to try is this look from Miley Cyrus. The cut is all about shaggy layers which adds volume and texture to the hair. It’s a mix of fun, sexy, and classy. P.S. If you really want to channel Miley, you can also sport the peekaboo hair trend she’s seen wearing lately!

6. Side-part textured bob like Selena Gomez’s

Love your hair’s natural waves? Then you’ll definitely have no issues sporting this beautiful side-part textured bob hairstyle similar to Selena Gomez’s. This look is perfect for those who want a fuss-free but still body-filled hairstyle that you can tie up or wear down depending on your preference.

7. Apple bob like Song Hye-Kyo’s

Can we talk about bob hairstyles without mentioning the classic apple bob? This soft-rounded hairstyle is the OG bob haircut and definitely gives a youthful yet sophisticated look to anyone who wears it (not that Song Hye-Kyo needs those extra points but you get the idea!). This hairstyle is also flattering for several face shapes.
