Beyoncé Just Made the Wispy Bob a Must-Try Summer Cut

·3 min read

Forget the Scandi bob (a modern-day must-have look, according to top hairdressers and Instagram). Thanks to our celestial queen Beyoncé, we're all about the wispy bob this summer. 

Now, bear with us, because “wispy” isn't necessarily a word we've historically associated with her luscious locks, because it means “fine” and “feathery,” but Queen Bey has changed all that (such is her power), and now we're hastily making appointments with our hairdressers as we speak. 

You might have already heard of a little album drop that happened today, because Renaissance— the “Break My Soul” singer's latest release—has unsurprisingly taken the internet by storm. And though each and every song is a banger in its own right (you can read our full album breakdown, track by track, here) and the sultry, powerhouse images Bey released ahead of the full album drop are to be our forever pinups, we just cannot get over how good she looks with a wispy bob. 

Yes, we know that Bey could pull off anything, but we actually think that this look could be a winner for faces of all shapes, sizes, and skin tones. (See it here and here.)

What's not to love? We love the bangs following the undulating curve of her eyebrow, we love the blunt, choppy cut, and we love the way it gently curves around her cheeks to draw attention to highlighted cheekbones and a sculpted chin. 

And we're not the only fans… 

“Beyoncé w a bob is sumn i didn’t kno I needed,” wrote one Twitter user, while another added: “SORRY but anyone else suddenly desperate for a blunt bob?!”

 A third wrote: “This album makes me wanna wear thigh high gogo boots, fishnets, loud makeup, and a blunt cut bob. #RENAISSANCE #Beyonce.”

While a fourth compared the look to Vogue's very own Anna Wintour: “This Anna Wintour Bob keeps coming back around every couple of months from Beyoncé to snatch my edges and slay me each time and I can’t get enough!”

Luckily, Beyoncé has also shown us the joys of keeping hair long too, so don't be too downcast if you end up deciding a bob is just too risky. Just look at her here and tell us you don't want an extra-long plait that stretches over your sequined-star-covered nipple and down toward your belly button! 

If you are going to take the plunge and have fine hair, the good news is that a blunt cut like this can add the appearance of volume. If you have coarser strands, you might want to ask your stylist to razor the ends to remove some of the weight and soften the look.

We'd book quick, though—we have a feeling that hairdressers are about to get super busy with wispy bob requests in the very, very near future. Now that PSA is over, we're going back to listen to Renaissance under our duvets—vive la Beyoncé.
