Ladies, let our flat irons unite! The long bob hairstyle is here to stay. At least through the winter.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Eva Longoria, and Victoria Beckham (before Ms. Posh chopped her hair off) have all been rockin' the long bob. And these lovely celebrities look polished, classic, and modern. Sarah Michelle Gellar also just got a long bob cut. And model Kate Moss is walking around with a shorter, platinum blonde bob.
It's an easy hairstyle to manage, unless you have very curly or wavy hair. But the long bob is basically one length, and there are several variations to it. You can wear bangs with the long bob. Most women simply part their hair in the middle, a la Ms. Gwyneth. Or they side part it, a la Ms. Longoria. And it can be cut at a longer angle in front, than at the back.
And it's a 'do' that never really goes out of style. Although hair trends come and go with the fast snip of a scissors.
And if you love fringe, and big bangs, then you're in. New mom Jessica Alba has been spotted sporting some big, Nelly Furtado bangs. And stylists say that fringe is back in a big way for 2008.
For 2009, we're not sure which direction hair will be growing. Stay tuned.
