Jessica Alba has done it again. She's gone and given us hair envy after debuting a shorter "fashion bob" at the Hollywood Stand Up to Cancer event in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. Alba's new crop was chopped by celebrity hair stylist Jen Atkin who posted the above photo on her Instagram account with the caption: Just Chopped! @jessicaalba serving us a fresh "Fashion-Bob" #TexturedEnds #LongFront
Over the years, Alba has not only become a huge style icon, but has started major hair trends with her gorgeous brunette locks. From her perfect ombré and her long, wavy locks to her blunt lob and dark chocolate hue, Alba's hair is ever changing. According to Atkin, the fashionista mom is unafraid to try something different when it comes to her 'do. "Jessica's style is always evolving, and she isn't afraid of a little change. She was ready for something new and fresh," Atkin told Us Weekly.
The last time Alba had this much of a drastic cut was last September, though it wasn't nearly as short as it is now. And although she's not the first to rock a bob, this iteration is much edgier than what we've been seeing on a lot of other celebrities. The angled cut gives Alba the ability to really show off the choppy layers with textured waves, framing her face almost perfectly.
I chopped six inches of my hair last summer and was totally set on growing it out... until now, of course. Anyone else considering replicating Alba's choppy cut? Fashion bobs for everyone!
