It’s official! The bob is surging towards the finish line as 2014’s hottest hair style trend. From Hollywood A-listers, international pop artists, to local celebrities, the classic bob, in its various modern reincarnations have crowned the faces of some of the world’s most beautiful women.
So, if you’re thinking of debuting a chic new ‘do just before the year ends, take some hair inspiration from these stylish celebrities who have caught the bob bug. Choose the best cut that flatters your hair texture, face shape, and personal style from among these classy, sexy and cool bobs.
Layered and Fringed Bob for Round Face
A long bob or lob with softly framing layers, or a short bob with a sideswept fringe create an illusion of a slimmer face, ideal for round faces.

Textured Bob for Angular Faces
Opt for a below-the-chin bob with wispy layers at the ends or curls to soften a strong, angular jawline like Kiera Knightley’s.
Wavy Bob for Heart-shaped Face
A bob of loose waves that falls below the chin coupled with wispy bangs, like Reese Witherspoon’s, is almost always flattering for heart-shaped faces. It softly frames the face and draws attention away from the pointy chin that characterizes this face shape.
Chin Length Bob for Oval Face
Women with oval-shaped faces are considered lucky because theirs is considered the ideal face shape and practically any hair style will be flattering. But a curled under, chin length bob is the most flattering, as seen on pop star Britney Spears, because it contours the face beautifully.
Many local celebrities have also joined the bob hair bandwagon. But singer-actress Sarah Geronimo stands out among the rest. No one saw it coming – the chopping of her prized locks, but what was more surprising was how elegantly she grew into her new hair style.
