The bob is a hairdo that’s eternally in style and has a variation for every hair type and texture — so it’s no wonder it’s been a go-to look on the red carpet from the 1920s to today. From Zendaya to Hailey Bieber, here are 11 celebrity bob haircuts that’ll make you want a chop.

Kim Kardashian’s Sleek Bob

Kardashian’s a hair chameleon, so she’s basically tried every trending ‘do out there. The straight bob, however, is a frequent style in her repertoire. At a Christie’s event in 2018, the reality star and entrepreneur rocked a polished version with a middle part.

Solange Knowles’ Vivacious Curls

Knowles makes a voluminous, curly bob look effortless. At the 2017 Grammys, the singer's hair ethereally sprouted in all directions while maintaining the loose shape of the iconic cut.

Linda Evangelista’s Fire-Red ‘Do

There is nothing more '90s than fawning over the head-turning red bob of one of the original supermodels, Linda Evangelista. In 1991, she wore a short and tapered cut with volume at the crown for added shape.

Millie Bobby Brown’s Y2K Bob

The Stranger Things star has experimented with early aughts looks before, and this 2019 screening of Godzilla II is just another example. Brown’s middle parted-bob is held back with clips before ending with a 2000s-era outwards flip.

Winona Ryder’s Zigzag Part Bob

This is a peak early 2000s hairstyle: Ryder wore a bob with turned-out ends punctuated with a zigzag part at a movie premiere in 2001. Bonus points for the matching hair accessory and scarf combo.

Kerry Washington’s Voluminous Bob

Another beautiful argument for the curly bob is Washington’s effortless ‘do. Worn during a 2018 appearance on The Tonight Show, the actor serves serious inspo for days when you just want to air dry and go.

Hailey Bieber’s Beachy Bob

The model often experiments with all sorts of haircuts and styles, but the bob is one she frequently turns to. Bieber rocks it both sleek and shiny and wavy and tousled, the latter of which she paired with smoky eyeliner at a Saint Laurent fashion show.

Alia Shawkat’s Pixie Bob

The lob gets a lot of attention, but actor Shawkat demonstrates the enduring appeal of the short bob. The pixie-esque cut, which she wears with tousled bangs, is the perfect chop for summer.

Victoria Beckham’s Lob

Spice Girls fans know that Beckham is a bob queen — she’s rocked the cut since her time as a pop singer. As of late, the star has been sporting more of a lob, which is a great option for those wanting to keep some length.

Zendaya’s Baby Bang + Bob Combo

The Euphoria star makes a strong case for pairing a short chop with another trending hairstyle: baby bangs. That, combined with her dark red strands, was a standout look at the 2018 Met Gala.

Michelle Pfeiffer’s Iconic Bob
