From Anna Wintour to Margot Robbie, These Are the Best Bob Hairstyles to Copy

My hair has recently reached that awkward in-between length where it's no longer the mid-length lob that I visited the hairdressers for but it can't quite be considered a long hairstyle yet. Instead, it's sitting rather uninspiringly on my shoulders causing me to seriously consider going for the chop. I've experimented with shorter hairstyles over the years but have never taken the plunge into a full-on bob.

But with Anna Wintour and her power bob out and about during fashion week last month, I have to admit that I'm seriously tempted to forgo my lengths in favour of something shorter, choppier and infinitely cooler. And a quick look online confirmed that the bob might just be the hairstyle of autumn/winter 2019. From Fearne Cotton to Lily James, so many celebrities have undergone major short hair transformations this year, and their styles look seriously amazing.

Kaia Gerber

Kaia Gerber's side-parting and tousled waves lend her bob hairstyle some serious French-girl vibes.

Fearne Cotton

I think that Fearne's new, short hair looks amazing. Use a texture spray through the ends to give your cut a similarly choppy feel.

Ada's bob-length braids are given an autumn-winter colour makeover with a cool silver balayage effect.

The queen of the bob, Anna Wintour's classic chin-length hairstyle is totally timeless. Pair it with a blunt, full fringe for extra power points.

Angee Garcia

My hair is naturally wavy, so I've never been sure if I could pull off a super-short bob. Angee, however, is proving that curly girls look amazing with super-short hair too.

Rachel Stevens

@MSRACHELSTEVENS

It's not just Rachel Stevens style that we've unexpectedly found ourselves wanting to copy, it's her hair too. Stevens opts for tonged curls to style her long bob for a polished finish.

Headband + natural curls = the cutest combination as worn by Sade.

Sophia Rosemary

@SOPHIA_ROSEMARY

Sophia follows the French-girl formula for the most stylish hair. A centre-parting that separates her fringe into two sections.

Dua Lipa

If I could achieve even a fraction of the shine coming off Dua Lip's black bob, then I'd be one happy beauty editor.

María Bernad

María's micro bob isn't for the fainthearted, but it looks so damn amazing with her feathered fringe

Tanya Burr

@TANYABURR

Take a low-maintenance approach to bobs by leaving yours to air-dry like Tanya Burr's blonde one.

Freddie Harrel

@FREDDIEHARREL

Freddie's paprika-hued bob (it's going to be one of this season's hottest hair colours, FYI) is perfect for autumn.

Lily James's blunt blonde bob is one of my favourite celebrity hair transformations of 2019 so far.

You don't have to wrestle with the hair tools to step out with a bob. Leave it to dry naturally like Simone so that your natural hair texture can add personality to your short style.

Kerry Washington

@KERRYWASHINGTON

Hair clips + side parting = the most elegant bob I ever did see. Thanks for the inspo, Kerry.

Bella Hadid

@BELLAHADID

Before Bella went over to the blonde side later this year, the supermodel could be spotted with this retro-inspired bob as her hairstyle of choice.

Kim Kardashian West

@KIMKARDASHIAN

Curl the ends of your bob under using hair straighteners to replicate Kim K's classic bob.

I'm totally obsessed with Jourdan's chin-length, wavy 'do. She might even have persuaded me to wave goodbye to my trademark bangs.

The soft, sweeping fringe on Emilia's red carpet look lends her bob a beautiful vintage feel.

Emma Hill

This is how London girls do bobs—blunt, centre-parted and with plenty of sass like Emma.

Carey Mulligan

Carey is serving up a triple-dose of hair inspiration here with her perfect length bob, that choppy fringe and her beachy waves.

Laura Harrier

@LAURAHARRIER

It's not just the fashion that it's worth looking to the '60s for, it's the beauty too. Laura Harrier's beehive-inspired bob is created by adding plenty of volume at the back of the style and keeping things sleek at the front.

ASOS Lotte

@ASOS_LOTTE

Think of ASOS Lotte's long bob as the perfect entry-point to the hairstyle.

Tessa Thompson

@TESSAMETHOMPSON

Tessa Thompson's razor-sharp ends are so cool.

Charlize Theron

@CHARLIZEAFRICA

Not only do I love the cut of Charlize's style here, but I'm head over heels for that rich, chocolate brown colour.

Lizzy Hadfield

@SHOTFROMTHESTREET

Another fashion girl that took the plunge into short hair territory this year is Lizzy Hadfield, and I adore it.

ASOS Lesley

@ASOS_LESLEY

A relaxed fringe looks so good with ASOS Lesley's bob-length curls here.

Emma Roberts

@EMMAROBERTS

Stylists advise using a hair straightener to re-create the cool, relaxed, L.A. waves that Emma Roberts is modelling here.

Lucy Boynton

@JENNYCHOHAIR

A dramatic side-sweep and retro waves deliver red carpet glamour in abundance for Lucy Boynton.

Marianne Theodorsen

@MARIANNE_THEODORSEN

Stop your bob from feeling too much of a classic hairstyle by experimenting with colour like Marianne.

Syana Laniyan

@SYANALANIYAN

A one-length cut looks incredible on curly hair as Syana proves.

Margot Robbie

@PATIDUBROFF

Let's be honest: Margot Robbie always looks amazing but I have a soft spot for this sharp, short bob that she wore to the Oscars this year.

Alyssa Coscarelli

@ALYSSAINTHECITY

If I was going to take the plunge for any bob, then it would most likely be a low-maintenance wavy style like Alyssa's.
