Long Hair is Over - let's All Flip Our Bobs Back and Forth

Long hair has been au courant forever now, so this year's explosion of short hair feels really fresh and exciting. After a year of having (fake) long hair, a change was on the cards for me - I never go that long without changing my style. So my latest favourite hobby has been looking for bob inspiration, wildly deliberating over whether to go for it. I was then booked for a hair modelling job for Redken, who were looking for girls willing to go shorter, and it was like follicle fate! The decision was made for me; I would ditch the extensions once and for all. When I arrived at the job I was delighted to discover that I would be styled by none other than Lee Stafford himself, so my barnet was in very good hands for my drastic new do.

So much less maintenance! So much more framing of the face! Now I need to aspire to the style of girls cool enough to pull it off, in hopes of rocking the short hair for all I'm worth. Forget all those bandwagon-jumpers of the Daily Mail variety, who'll be back to their weaves as soon as you can say 'follower'; I like to seek out much cooler icons for dressing up my tresses. Here are my current muses for the coiffure I crave (or now sort of have)...

Dark brown short bob with fringe. It really is the classic haircut, from any decade from the 1920s on. Taylor Lashae #pixiemarket:

Taylor L. My hair exactly. Now I know what I need to pull it off: gorgeous face, perfect makeup, expensive clothes. Oh well.:

Sideswept: If you’ve been rocking a center part for a few years, try changing it up with a side part. Sweep your strands to one side and tuck your wispy bangs for a new look.:
