Bob Hairstyles: Your Cheat Sheet to Finding the Perfect Cut for You

If you were paying attention to the hairstyles on the red carpet at the Golden Globesobviously we wereyou know that 2015 is going to be all about that bob. The thing we love most about the formerly classic hairstyle? Its versatility, which ranges from longer versions (aka lobs") to blunt, chin-grazing cuts. If youre thinking about making the chop, check out how these celebs put their own spin on the anything-but-bland style:

The Asymmetrical Bob


Spotted on: Rosamund Pike

Behind the bob: Longer on one side and shorter on the other, we love how Pike's purposely unbalanced bob walks the line between edgy and elegant. To get her look, flat iron then follow with a dose of shine-inducing hair oil.

The Curly Bob


Spotted on: Viola Davis

Behind the bob: Davis's bouncy style proves that curly girls can rock the short cut too. Make sure your stylist adds layers in order to add dimension without width, then style with a diffuser and a frizz-taming product like Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper Gel.

The Baby Bob


Spotted on: Kristen Wiig

Behind the bob: Short, sweet, and fuss-free, this variation is the ultimate cool girl do. (Which, of course, is why Wiig has one.) Its an easy wash-and-go option for ladies with naturally straight or slightly wavy locks.

The Textured Bob


Spotted on: Sienna Miller

Behind the bob: Has Miller ever had a bad hair day? We're particularly obsessed with her chin-length chop. Ask your stylist for a textured, layered cut, then style it daily with a volumizing product like Oribes Dry Texturizing Spray. (Need help? Watch our video for how to style a wavy bob.)

The Long Bob


Spotted on: Jenna Dewan Tatum

Behind the bob: Finally, a style for that awkward stage between bob and past-your-shoulders hair. As modeled by Mrs. Tatum, the lob hits right at the neckline and looks best when styled with subtle, beachy waves.

The Graduated Bob


Spotted on: Emma Stone

Behind the bob: If youre searching for a graceful way to grow out bangs, look no further than Stones style. Fringe can be swept to the side and paired with just the right amount of body to get this sleek-yet-casual look.
