12 Celebrities With The Best Bob Hairstyles!

The bob is a classic hairstyle that can be worn in a multitude of fresh and flattering ways. Celebrities have been embracing this trend for years. They have refashioned the bob countless times and have made it hip and fresh again. In celebration of one of the most popular hairstyles of all times, here are 12 celebrities who know how to work the bob the best!

12. Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston’s hairstyles became a cultural phenomenon in the mid ‘90s thanks to one in particular, which became known as “The Rachel.” In 2001, she decided that she wanted to try something different, so she traded in her ultra long locks for a blunt bob. Unfortunately – while everyone else loved it, she hated this hairstyle almost immediately.

11. January Jones

When it comes to hairstyles, January Jones might be slightly ahead of the curve and the bob hairstyle she sported a couple of years ago is proof. The “Mad Men” star was seen at various events in 2012 sporting a textured, asymmetrical bob that looks feminine, but also edgy.

10. Julianne Hough

Julianne Hough looked amazing with her choppy bob. The piece-y ends and side swept bangs made the “Safe Haven” star a style icon overnight. When it comes to her hair, Hough is actually quite fearless. She recently traded in the bob for a hot new pixie cut. How many actresses can do that?!

9. Katy Perry

Katy Perry knows how to turn heads. After splitting from Russell Brand, she switched things up with a bright blue bob. The chin-length hairstyle is super flattering on the pop star, as it softens her facial features, and the blue dye makes her stand out.

8. Paris Hilton

When Paris Hilton was starring on “The Simple Life” with her best bud Nicole Richie, she loved her hair extensions; however, in 2005, she opted for a more low maintenance hairstyle – a short bob – and it looked amazing. The bangs and the textured ends make this hairstyle look fun and flirty.

7. Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow sported a long angled bob back in 2008. The hairstyle has been labeled “the lob” and it is so stylish that it has garnered a cult following. The Oscar-winning actress seemed to prefer her long locks, but this sleek hairstyle definitely gave her some much needed edge.

5. Rihanna

Rihanna always has new and edgy hairstyles. At one event she’ll sport a pixie and a week later she will show up at another event with long, wavy hair. Her asymmetrical bob from 2007 is definitely a favorite. It’s sleek and sexy and the uneven length adds a bit of edge.

4. Katie Holmes

When Katie Holmes was with Tom Cruise, she experimented a lot with her hair. One of the best hairstyles she ever sported was this wispy bob back in 2007. The “Dawson’s Creek” actress was never much of a trendsetter, but this hairstyle probably inspired thousands and thousands of copycats.

3. Marion Cotillard

Marion Cotillard’s asymmetrical bob from the 2013 SAG Awards is a definite favorite. The hairstyle is quite sophisticated – just like the Oscar-winning actress. For those who are really interested in this hairstyle, it will only work really well for those with silky straight hair – unless, of course, you are willing to style it regularly.

2. Scarlett Johansson

In 2010, Scarlett Johansson shocked everyone when she traded in her long locks for a short, asymmetrical bob. The style itself is messy and choppy, which allows for a casual, chic look. This hairstyle was so popular that it made Harper’s Bazaar “10 Most Amazing Short Haircuts” list.

1. Victoria Beckham

Few women can rock a bob like Victoria Beckham. In 2007, Victoria Beckham – formerly known as Posh Spice – traded in her extensions for a chic new hairstyle – the inverted bob. This hairstyle was pretty unique at the time – the front was kept long and sleek while the hair at the back was shorter. This hairstyle has become so iconic that it has its own name – the POB (Posh Spice Bob).
