  • As If Short Hair Couldn't Get Any Cooler, Allow Us to Introduce You to the French Bob

    Anyone who's ever gotten a big chop knows: cutting your hair is like hitting a giant reset button on your life. If you are experiencing fatigue (with your hair or otherwise), desperately looking for a change, or wanting to feel inspired, a haircut will do the trick, but sometimes it's hard to know where to begin. Somewhere between a lob and a pixie cut is the sweet spot we call the bob. It's cool, it's easy, it's low-maintenance. But if the typical blunt-end bob style doesn't suit you, there are more options out there just waiting to be discovered - like the French bob. Unlike the straight ends of a blunt bob, the French bob is more choppy with piecey ends. The style just skims your cheekbones, which also gives them a more pronounced look. It works on curly, straight, and wavy hair textures and instantly gives your look a touch of attitude. Allow the following street style shots to serve as inspiration and proof that the French bob is the chicest cut around. It makes for a laid-back, perfectly messy style that looks like you just rolled out of bed but also like you're ready to step onto a runway - which pretty much sums up French beauty. As you scroll through these French-bob haircut ideas, it'll take everything in you not to chop off your hair right here and now. (But of course, we advise strongly against that.)
