If you could call an iconic woman’s haircut, what would that be? The answer must be the bob. The traditional shoulder-length bob has been a very hot trend for some years now. The best argument we have for this statement is the fact that so many Hollywood celebrities have put on this haircut. That’s why we’ve decided to create a comprehensive list of 50 goody shoulder-length bob ideas that will inspire you. Do not worry, your favorite star is in there too!
We start with a color that is perfect for the summer. This platinum blonde has a greyish tint on the roots to make her look as natural as possible, and a few beige-blonde stripes here and there to warm her up a bit.
This cut is asymmetrical in the sense that it is longer at the front and shorter at the back, creating the illusion of an elongated and slimmer face. We also advise you to share your hair for this site.
