Victoria Beckham has been crowned as the celebrity with the most iconic bob of all time according to a survey published this week. Posh Spice topped the poll for her 2001 interpretation of this ever popular style, winning the votes of almost a quarter of all those polled by online retailer, Hairtrade.com.
Victoria can be a bit of a chameleon when it comes to her hair, changing her style almost constantly, but we have to agree that her cool, asymmetric bob is certainly one of our favourites.
Two fashion icons followed Posh in the polls – legendary designer and fashionista Mary Quant in a close second place, and editor of American Vogue, Anna Wintour in third.
Quant was one of the very first to take up the super chic bob in the 1960s and her distinctive cut became synonymous with the edgy elegance of the time.
Meanwhile, Wintour has worn the same geometric bob with blunt fringe for more years than we can remember, but this timeless style looks as fresh today as ever.
Fourth place in the poll went to model Alexa Chung for her middle parted, brunette bob, and fifth place to Jennifer Aniston for her long bob made famous in the hit show, Friends.
The great thing about the bob is that it is so versatile, demonstrated by the varying interpretations of the style in this poll, so there really is a bob for almost everyone. If you feel it’s time you embraced this classic, our stylists would love to help.
