Forget the Trends—This Low-Maintenance Bob Is the Most Timeless Cut of Them All

Forget the Trends—This Low-Maintenance Bob Is the Most Timeless Cut of Them All

There is no denying that the bob has been the haircut of the past year. It seems that many of us took to our salon to opt for a short haircut over the past 12 months. And if there is one thing for sure, our love affair with bobs isn’t going anywhere as we head into 2024.

We’ve seen every iteration of the bob haircut make a comeback over the past year, from the Italian bob to the blunt bob, and the stacked bob to the French bob. And now, the choppy bob is the next haircut that I predict we’ll be seeing a lot more of.

Scrolling through my Instagram feed, I’m seeing so many choppy, textured bobs. And I’m not surprised. Not only is this a timeless haircut that suits everyone, but the layers give hair body and movement, and gives you that effortless “undone” look with minimal effort.
