Welp, it’s officially July, which means we’ve reached the point of summer when all anyone can do is talk about how damn hot it is. And as anyone with long, neck-grazing hair knows, this time of year could very well be called high-ponytail season, since updos are the only viable option when you’re dealing with gross temps and 100 percent humidity. That is, unless you call your hairstylist right TF now and get the haircut literally every single celeb is wearing: a modern bob.
Sure, bob haircuts were once relegated for your mom’s mom’s mom, or your grade-school self, but not in 2019. No, today’s bobs are flippy, choppy, and hella cute. They can be worn with your natural curls, or your stick-straight texture, and they can be flat-ironed or waved or braided up. Basically, the modern bob is the free-for-all of summer haircuts, which is why it’s currently taking over your Insta feed. So to get in on the trend before it dies, check out these 20 short bob haircut ideas that’ll have you texting your group chat, “Wait, should I cut my hair?”
