At this point, we’ve seen a million and one variations of the bob. From nearly pixie, to its overgrown counterpart, the lob, or “long bob”, style and beauty gurus everywhere have headed to salons to chop off their tresses. Trendsetters the likes of Lauren Conrad and Jennifer Aniston have traded in their luscious, signature strands for shorter variations, and girls everywhere have raced to their stylists to follow suit.
One major style icon was late to board this train, but now that she’s on it we may finally see the end of cascading locks and the ideology that “only long hair is sexy”. That’s right: ultra-influencer Kim Kardashian West debuted her new, choppy ‘do via instagram last week and racked up over 1.5 million likes almost immediately.
If you’ve admired the lob or bob, but are afraid to take the short hair plunge, let Kim K be your inspiration! Kim hasn’t lost an ounce of sex appeal with the 10 inches she bid adieu to, and in fact we think this sleek new style will balance her signature provocateur aesthetic.
We can’t wait to see who chops theirs next!
