Things you need to know before you cut your hair like Michelle Williams

inset_michellewilliamsThe bob is the hottest hair cut of 2015 as more and more celebrities go for the chop. It’s a classic cut that is never truly out of fashion, but the last 12 months have seen a massive surge in its popularity. It has become the style of choice for A-listers from Beyoncé and Scarlett Johansen to  Michelle Williams and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini

Flattering
The great thing about the bob is that there’s a flattering style for pretty much every face shape.

In general a short bob will suit a square face or strong jawbone, whereas a style with longer layers will be best for those with rounder features.

When it comes to the cut the style can range from layered and choppy to blunt, graduated or asymmetrical. Although these cuts do come in and out of fashion, the most important thing is to choose the style that you feel comfortable with and which suits you the best. But if you do want to follow the latest trends…

Bang up-to-date bobs
It all started with the shoulder length, long bob, or lob as it’s become known. If you’re unsure whether shorter hair is for you the lob is a great place to start.

Then came the baby bob. It just grazes the chin, and is left little bit tousled and messy. Combine with your natural curls, or add in a few of your own for this super cool look. Read our “How to” guide for more.

A gorgeous fringe can be really set off your bob but it’s important to choose the right one for your face shape. Eye-grazing, blunt bangs are great for a long, oval face whereas a heart or round shaped face will better suit a longer, side swept fringe.
