“Zendaya has an even shorter bob now and the urge to chop my hair off is palpable”
An edit of the best wavy and curly bobs in the game to inspire your next cut.
From the power bob to the French bob – there’s one major hair trend taking over 2022 and it’s the bob. But, if you’re blessed with curls, you might be fooled into thinking that a bob hairstyle won’t work for you. Let’s think again. While a bob hairstyle might take a little more taming if you’ve got natural curls, kinks or coils, the curly bob is one of our favourite ever styles.
“I love a curly hair bob as it gives you that width and volume, creating a really cool shape,” says Patrick Wilson, creative artist for ghd hair. “If a bob is a new length you’ve never really braved before, sit down and have a consultation with your stylist. There’s not just a one-length bob; you need to feel comfortable with the desired length. Screenshot some inspiration pictures and talk to your hairstylist about what will work best.”
So, if you’re looking for curly bob inspiration pictures, we can help. We’ve rounded up 17 celebrities who have slayed a curly bob – all you need to do is sit back, scroll and screenshot. Enjoy.
