It all started in the 1920s. Women around the world were fed up with the claims of stereotypical ‘femininity’. In a first wave of deliberate non-conformance women cut their long hair short if only because it was considered ‘unwomanly’ at the time. Ideally, the hair was cut off at earlobe level. Add to this completely cut straight fringes and you have the prototype of the bob hair. The classic bob haircut always looks perfect, is suitable, easy to maintain, certainly in style and did not require elaborate techniques. This is probably because of the fact that this hairstyle looks great on women of any age, with any hair texture and hair color. It’s a variable, stylish and convenient hairdo that can still be updated for a modern look. If you’re thinking of going the chop, remember that there are a variety of stylish bob hairstyles to choose from. Take inspiration from 15+ Classic Bob Hairstyles.
