A few years back Karlie Kloss debuted a fun and flirty bob that sent women and girls into a frenzy of shoulder-grazing looks, from tousled to curly to asymmetric, textured and messy. In these modern times of easy-going gritty chic, the classic blunt bob was conspicuous by its absence. Then this year’s the Met Gala bestowed us with Bella Hadid’s freshly cut blunt bob in dark chocolate tones, which she has continued to wear all throughout spring, including this image from last week’s CFDA Fashion Awards. Is this sparking a new era of classic one length bobs in sensual singular colors?
I love a great undone and non-prissy updo. They were all the rage on the Fall ’15 runway, with everyone from Chanel to Isabel Marant adopting the unstuffy look. While some may think that you have to have long flowing locks to create a fantastic mussy chignon, the truth is even ladies with cropped hair can enjoy a great do. And when I saw that Kristin Stewart stepped out a great asymmetrical updo at the Women in Film Awards last week, I knew I’d found the perfect answer to great style for any length. Her look is just the amount of done, and undone which translates into a perfectly imperfect do that says I never try too hard. Care to emulate her look?
