The Bob Haircut

100 Years of the Bob

The bob was invented in 1909 by Paris-based hairdresser Antoine and this year the hairstyle that never goes out of fashion celebrates its 100th anniversary and the iconic style is currently having a moment with new twists and attitude. It is my #1 favorite haircut I have had the pleasure to work with for the past 30 years. I love the bob and on the year of its 100th birthday it seems we have a wave of popularity with all the wonderful variations of bobs today. We are seeing, shoulder-grazing lengths, sharp fringes, choppy, layered and of course the jaw length bob, and their being worn by A-listers of celebrities and the fashion world.
The bob has always been and still is one of the most requested styles and it's also the best way for any long hair to go shorter you can take it slowly or dramatically and it remains classic, chic and trendy for many generations to come. And with the many variations today there is a look for almost everyone that can wear and sport a bob. Happy Birthday Bob!
