Katy Perry’s recent outings feature this beautifully geometric bob, which conjures memories of Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra in the epic film from 1963. Her jet-black locks, blunt arcs, and tough micro fringe creates a structured frame that draws attention to Katy’s piercing eyes, shapely cheeks, and radiant smile. The line of the bob sits on the shoulders, helping to elongate the neck and create width underneath the jaw, which enhances the delicate, feminine feeling of this look. Good enough for a Nile Queen, a Hollywood icon, and a pop star steal this style with our tips, found in the notes…
Whatever way fashion swings, a red lip and a bob will always look good. Attending the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, Emma Roberts took this tack for her darling ‘do. More like a whisper in the ear than a cat call, it may be understated, but it is also beautiful. A modern, jaw-length bob with soft and gentle layers promotes the illusion of extra thickness and volume while the soft lines and shape help to show off the health of her hair. The side-swept bangs showcase classic style and it’s a great way to elongate the features of the face, drawing attention to a big smile. For tips on styling similar looks, click style notes.
