Soft colors and short swingy shapes combine to form a soft spring trend: baby bobs. The look starts with a customized bang—which can be short or long—that blends down seamlessly into ear-grazing length at the sides and tapers in at the neck. The outline is barely longer than a pixie, but a blunt edge and minimal layering give the cut a distinctly bob-like feeling. Delicate pale hues add lightness.

Katy Perry is known for her wild, outlandish hair colors, but she’s toned it down of late, and looked perfectly appropriate wearing this sultry raven hue at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards. The color has shine and dimension, and the cut is great, too. A long, modern bob with soft and gentle layers promotes the illusion of extra thickness and volume while the clean lines and soft shape help to show off the health of her hair. The side-swept bangs showcase simple classic style and it’s a great way to elongate the features of the face, just like it’s done for Katy. For tips on styling a similar look, click style notes.

Keira benefits from lots of gorgeous natural shine and luster in her hair, and this modern bob is a great way to highlight these features. The clean lines and soft shape is pretty and feminine, while the perfect length –– in-between the jaw and the shoulders ––helps to elongate the features of her face. For the color, Keira plays into her natural sparkle with a shimmering mid-level brown that adds texture, thickness, and dimension.
