I love undone and messy waves. They’re a great visual cue for telling the world “I’m the Parisian girlfriend of a rock star and I like to lounge along the Champs-Élysées, looking cool. If I can’t be bothered with that, see me by the beach as a laid back surfer chick.” Ah, The Life!  Perfectly imperfect bobs may make you think of the new global glitterati effortlessly sauntering towards their next ridiculously perfect Instagram photo but don’t be fooled, it takes work to look as easy-breezy as this.  So if you’re jonesing for the perfectly imperfect wave, click through to the notes to learn the steps it take to look so cool. –– Michelle Rotbart

Its getting hard to remember the time when bobs were considered the signature style of soccer moms. The cut was so uncool that, when growing out my pixie 7 years ago, I opted for an awkward mullet over the blunt line of a bob. But, in the last few years, the bob cut has become an unstoppable trend, with new converts every day. Just last week, Cara Delevingne joined the ranks of bobbed celebs. It’s clear that the bob is having a moment, but how long will it last and what has made the cut so popular in the first place? Click the notes to find out. –– Laura Martin
