  •  Beachy, matte wavy bob 
 Is there anything  more  summery than a matte, beachy bob? No, we can't think of anything either...
  •  Freida Pinto's wavy bob 
 We fell in love with Freida's bob as soon as she got it. This hairstyle really has it all: movment, volume and the perfect shoulder-grazing length.
  •  Beachy blonde bob 
 Bob cuts looks gorgeous with tousled waves, and a bright blonde color showcases the texture perfectly.
  •  Voluminous wavy bob 
 If you want natural looking, wavy volume that's easy to manage, you can't go wrong with a bob cut. It's long enough, but not  too  long.
  •  Short bob with loose waves 
 Barely there waves totally count, and these subtle bends are enchanting!
  •  Karlie Kloss's glam wavy bob 
 Karlie Kloss was partly responsible for putting the wavy bob on the map, and even though she's rocking a lob right now, we can't think of anyone who does this trend better!
  •  Piecey wavy bob 
 Understated with a grungy edge, this piecey bob is effortlessly cool.
  •  Windswept, air dried bob with bangs 
 This disheveled bob is the epitome of wash and go chic!
  •  Soo Joo Park's layered bob 
 We love Soo Joo Park's subtle layers and big, loose waves!
  •  Middle parted wavy bob 
 The messy middle part gives this short wavy bob some added edge.

The wavy bob has become a hairstyle mainstay in recent years thanks to the likes of Karlie Kloss, and with countless It girls, actresses and models continuing to embrace the trend, it won't be disappearing anytime soon! So, what makes this short haircut so amazing? (Hint: everything!)

So. Many. Options.

Bob haircuts come in basically every shape and size imaginable. This means they can be tailored to look great on everyone, whatever your face shape and hair texture. When combined with waves - textured, piecey, sleek, or blown out - they just looks so effortlessly chic and cool. They retain plenty of movement, but just seem a whole lot easier to deal with than longer locks- which they absolutely are!

Should you try a bob?

In a word, yes! If you want to get a short(er) haircut but don't want something as radical as a pixie, a bob is by far and away your best bet. You can start off with a longish 'lob' cut, then work your way up to something shorter if you decide you like it. Wavy bobs also look awesome with all kinds of bangs, too, so if your fringe is a priority you can totally factor it into your new look.

When you go to the salon, make sure you have some photos with you to illustrate the kind of bob you want, then talk through all the options with your stylist.
