They look great with any kind of headgear, be it hats, scarves or berets. They are perfect to keep those dry ends healthy because you will be trimming your tresses every six to eight weeks. And best of all, they come in a multitude of forms to choose from. We've rounded up a selection of celebrities who rock the bob to convince you to join the bob club.

Kate Mara's impeccable bobKate Mara's impeccable bob

Kate Mara went for a slightly longer version of the bob here, ending just above her collar bones. Her hair is smooth and straight with only a slight angle at the end which gives her a very classy air completed by side parting tucked behind her ear. This bob is just a simple perfection that looks great in any circumstances.





Reese Witherspoon's textured bob.

Reese Witherspoon's textured bobReese's hair is normally on the straight side but for this occasion she opted for textured waves complete with the straight, side-swept bangs. The secret of this do is keeping the very ends straight to avoid the messy, bedhead look. To create the waves use a texturising spray and remember to dry your hair with a diffuser.






Naomi Campbell's sophisticated lob.

The eye-grazing bangs that she is sporting are only slightly parted which give her an air of casual chic. For this look, avoid blunt cuts and make sure you use serum to achieve the glossy finish.






Lily Colins's parted bob.

This look takes the years away and rejuvenates. It looks great especially on those blessed with an oval face, but be careful to steer clear of poker straight hair if you opt for it as it can really elongate the face.






Jessica Alba's grown out ombre lob.
