From Demi Lovato to Taylor Swift – 6 famous faces who gave us mad love for the bob in 2016

We’ve all been raving about so many different hairstyles recently; dip-dye, balayage, the topknot (which has strangely grown on us) – but one that we’ve always thought was ever so sleek? THE BOB.


That’s right – it’s short, it’s snazzy and it’s timelessly stylish. It’s been so good recently it’s even made us wonder if we should go for the chop.

(But we’re probs too scared.)

We’ve noticed some of our favourite famous faces have been perfectly shaped with glam bobs of all shapes, cuts and colours, so we thought we’d have a look at some of our faves.


  1. T-Swizzle

Remember when Taylor was all about the long, angel curls back in her country days? The ‘Bad Blood’ sensation has proved that a bob can change your whole look – she’s now an edgy, sophisticated lady who looks every bit an icon in her own right. With a short, platinum blonde look complete with a gorgeous sweeping fringe, she’ll never go out of style. (That’s right, we went there).

  1. Demi Lovato

Demi has always been fashionable, but since releasing her album ‘Confident’ we’ve seen a full transformation. Demi’s bob might have something to do with that – in her videos she’s swinging her hair like she just don’t care, with a choppy textured style that looks incredibly chic. What’s wrong with being confident? (okay we’ll stop.)

  1. Khloe Kardashian

BLIMEY, Khloe looks ABSOLUTELY UNREAL a la bob. Ditching the extensions and blending in some gorgeous highlights, Koko has had an unreal transformation which makes her look more stunning than ever. LONG LIVE THE BOB!

  1. Emma Watson

We always wished Emma would live her life exactly like Hermione Granger, and have the same curly hair throughout her entire life, being besties with Harry and Ron. Sadly, this simply cannot be, so we’ll have to settle with Emma’s fabulous bob. In a well tamed short bob, Emma looks like a 60’s poster girl – and we absolutely love it.

  1. Jennifer Lawrence

The Hunger Games starlet is not only one of the most hilarious ladies on the planet, but her platinum bob is dazzling us more than Liam Hemsworth’s smile. And THAT is some dazzle.

  1. Adele

As if Adele hasn’t made us love her enough in 2016, we can’t get enough of her hair. With a hint of balayage flowing through, her bob makes her look even more Goddess-like than ever before. And we absolutely love it.

Yes, the votes are in. We can now reveal that 2016 is in fact…. THE YEAR OF THE BOB! ALL HAIL THE BOB!

Would you take the plunge and go for the chop? Let us know at @maximumpop!
