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?
As a big fan and self-proclaimed expert in runway and street style, I’m obsessed with the hair tuck.

And though it may seem like a casual detail, this style trick actually takes some work to achieve. Care to learn how to achieve this it-girl staple? It’s the perfect time of year to rock this look, so click through to the notes to get the know-how. –– Michelle Rotbart
