I know it's like the It hairstyle of the year and all, but I never, ever thought I'd see the day when Blake Lively got a bob. Chop off all those gorgeous waves?! It can't be! According to The Daily Mail, the Gossip Girl star was spotted on the set of her new movie with a short, curled bob, but before you run to the hair salon ready to chop yours up Blake-style, know that it's faux. Am I the only one slightly disappointed she didn't actually cut it?
The 28-year-old actress is known for her long, beachy blonde hair (I mean, she's a L'Oreal spokeswoman, for goodness sakes), so I figured she'd be the last star ever to join the bob/lob club. And I was right. Lively, who is currently in New York City filming the new Woody Allen project, was photographed on set wearing a seriously fierce leopard coat and rocking a curled faux bob. And she looks so chic with short hair, I hope this inspires her to cut it for real.
Not that Lively's long locks aren't completely flawless or anything (because, duh, they are), but she's had the same style forever, so I think it might be time to switch it up. And a faux bob is the perfect way to try out a look before you chop it.
If you're into the faux bob look, you're definitely not alone. Look to these seven celebs who have jumped on the It hairstyle trend without reaching for some shears.
