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?

This Memorial Day weekend, whether you’re headed home or on a fabulous trip you’ll definitely want to arrive in style. Without a doubt the airport is one of the best places to spot great celebrity style. So while last week I did a whole post on inspirational red carpet at Cannes, this week I’m focusing on the wealth of beauty and sartorial style seen at the city’s airport terminals. My favorite stylish celebrities, and their fabulous hair touched down in either long and loose cascading waves or more low-maintenance raked-back braids and ponytails. Either way, these were some high impact looks. So whatever your style there is a great jet setter with great hair guaranteed to inspire you the next time you’re packing your bags.
