Let's face it – Kim Kardashian has at some stage or another rocked pretty much every hairstyle imaginable. 

From jet-black to platinum blonde, she's embraced it and made it her own.

And while she's clearly never afraid to experiment, the reality TV star usually sticks to longer, tumbling tresses rather than shorter looks.

Until now, that is.

Yesterday, Ms Kardashian stepped out for lunch in LA with the her husband of two-years rocking a seriously chic long bob that we just can't get enough of. 

That and she was ALL over Snapchat debuting the style – both at lunch and later as she attended the launch of sister Kylie Jenner's cosmetics line.

For their romantic meal-for-two – at the upmarket Ysabel eatery – Kimmy wore knit boots from her husband's Yzeey line, along with a khaki lace-up dress and a Louis Vuitton petite malle clutch.

The boots alone cost €840 while the designer bag would set you back a cool €3,850.

Mum-of-two Kim, 36, also shared on Snapchat adorable posts featuring daughter North, three, and son Saint, eight months.


When we think of Summer hair two things come to mind: long and beachy.  But model of the moment Kendall Jenner has decided that neither of those concepts are for her right now as she has given her famous lob the chop.

While Kendall has yet to post an official picture of her new ‘do to her own social media accounts, celebrity hair stylist Jen Atkin has given fans a glimpse of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s new look on Snapchat.

In a series of clips which appeared on Jen’s story yesterday, Kendall is seen wearing an oversized t-shirt with a blown up caricature of her sisters’ late father Robert Kardashian on the back to the salon.

At first only her back is seen as Jen tries to build up her followers’ anticipation by captioning the pic “guess who”.

Then dark brown locks are seen falling to the floor as Jen works her magic on Kendall.

Eventually the hair stylist reveals who her celeb client of the day is by filming herself while wearing a giraffe filter and showing Kendall and her bob in the background.

We can’t wait to get a proper look at Kendall’s new hair.



We've become so used to Kylie Jenner changing around her hair left, right and centre, so when it comes to Kendall, we always know that she will play it safe… until now.

The model has only gone and gotten her first BOB – and it's looking sooo good.

Well, what we can see of it anyway.

The reality star showed off the new do' on Snapchat, and we're hoping this isn't another wig game. We're so over them.

But, we're SO into this.



Ah, the humble bob. With numerous celebrities opting for getting the chop, so many of us giddy civilians have followed suit. Making the leap from having long flowing tresses to a short, choppy bob is enough to strike fear into the heart of any woman but with so many gorgeous, shoulder length styles flooding our screens, how could we have possibly resisted?

We reckon having a whole load of money makes it super easy for celebs to chop and change. With world class extensions and stylists and even WIGS on hand, a bob is far from permanent.

For us real life woman, getting the chop is a huge change and even bigger commitment. And we won’t even start on the woes of trying to grow one out (we are talking YEARS).

Contemplating the leap? Check out eight super famous ladies who have sported both long hair and the perfect bob. 


1) Jennifer Lawrence 


Our favourite funny gal Jen has had a major hair transformation since hitting the limelight in 2011. Bursting onto the scene with long, blonde tresses, she was soon sporting her trademark Katniss Everdeen brown. And how did she celebrate the end of the Hunger Games franchise? By changing up her look of course. Jen was spotted with a choppy, shoulder length bob in peroxide blonde. We think she looks sexier than ever. 


2) Kylie Jenner


Kylie seems to have a new look every other day (which is probably easy when you have hairstylists on speed dial and a seemingly never ending supply of extensions and wigs). Kylie regularly swaps between a short bob and super long tresses and loves playing with colour having sported blue, green and most recently blonde locks. Though she seems to favour super long hair with the help of her trademark extensions, we love seeing Kylie with a bob for a more natural look. 


3) Lily Collins 


For an example of how much of a difference a haircut can make, look no further than Phil Collins’ offspring, Lily. Starting out her impressive acting career with long natural brown hair, she got the chop following her stint in the Mortal Instruments movie franchise. Lily’s bob gave us a perfect case of hair envy to add to our already budding brow envy and we think this hairstyle is the perfect grown up look. 


4) Emma Stone 


One of our fave actresses Emma Stone regularly changes up her look. Going blonde for her stint as Gwen Stacey in Spiderman with her beau Andrew Garfield before returning to her trademark red (which is NOT her natural colour. Emma is apparently naturally blonde). Another celeb who has opted to swap long hair for a choppy long bob, we think she pulls off this look flawlessly. 


5) Karlie Kloss 

Model sensation and Victoria’s Secret Angel Karlie started her career with long, naturally brown hair. Already stunning, she enhanced her look by dying her hair an ashy blonde and getting her tresses cut up to her shoulders. We think this bob is amazing, but when you have a face like that it is hard not to look amazing!


6) Sienna Miller 


Street style icon Sienna coined ‘bohemian chic’ and did so with long, boho waves in her early days as a model. Now an established actress, Sienna has gone for an elegant bob and continues to set beauty and fashion trends. We would defo bring her photo into the hair salon as an example of short haired perfection. 


7) Vanessa Hudgens 


Former High School Musical star Vanessa is known for her eclectic, quirky fashion sense and for always having a ridiculously delicious man on her arm (we are talking Zac Efron AND Austin Butler people). As she transitioned from teenage starlet to grown up twenty something, her hair transitioned as well. We love her grown up look and the perfect bob to match. 


8) Taylor Swift 


Our Tay Tay has grown up a lot over the last few years. From a starry eyed country star singing about Romeo and Juliet to the queen of pop music who is single handedly turning the industry on its head, Tay has had the hair transformation to match. Keeping her natural colour, Taylor opted to cut her hair short for the release of her platinum selling album 1989 and we think it perfectly matches her elegant, preppy fashion sense. Keep it real, Tay. 



So you’ve been admiring Emma Stone’s new hair-do, and you start to wonder, “would short hair suit me too?” Don’t make any hasty decisions though, there are a few things you need to think about before you head down to your hairdresser:

Will it suit the shape of your face?
Not everyone can get away with short hair that skims their jawline. Bobs tend to make round faces look even rounder. However, apparently if you get it cut an inch or two below your chin it can elongate your face by drawing the eye downward, so think about a long bob instead. Long faces tend to benefit from short bobs, as well as heart shaped ones like Emma Stone’s. Square faces can pull off the bob too, but it’s better if it’s a more textured cut to disguise the wider points of the face.

Do you have time to style it?
Don’t believe the hype – short hair does NOT mean less work. It still sticks up in the morning, in fact, even more than before because it doesn’t have any weight to drag it back down again. Do you have time to tend to your tresses every morning, or are you throw-it-up-in-a-ponytail-and-run kinda gal? Because remember, bobs don’t do ponytails!

Do you need to be able to tie it up?
Do you work in a restaurant, a hospital, or somewhere you need to have your hair tied back for hygiene purposes? If you do, and you get your hair cut short, be prepared to invest in a LOT of hair clips!

Do you realise how long it takes to grow back?
Oh yeah, they all say “sure it’ll grow back” – but it takes AGES! If you have an occasion coming up in the next year that you want to have long hair for, then getting it cut now is not an option. Hair grows about half an inch every month. So it takes a lot of months to return to your former long hair glory!

Did you ever have it short before?
We don’t know about you, but despite having had short hair before and hating it, something inside keeps insisting that this time it’ll be different. This time it will look amazing! It won’t stand up in the morning and it won’t make your face look rounder than the moon! Try your best to block out that voice. Unless you have a different face this time around, there’s a good chance it’s not going to work out the way you imagine. 



Emma Stone went to the Venice Film Festival earlier this week, sporting a brand new hair cut:

The star really knows how to work a bob. As do a lot of celebs, such as:

Victoria Beckham, Queen of Bobs:

Sarah Harding. Another lovely bob.

Beyoncé gave a bob a go for a while too.

What we can’t understand is why when WE cut all our hair off into a bob, it is not easy to maintain. It is not sleek. It is by no means ‘effortless’.

What’s their secret, seriously?

Maybe it’s ‘cause Emma washes her hair with such sass?

Whatever it is, it's working.
