The bob is back in fashion and it seems as though everyone is getting in on the action. Having already been a style sensation in the 1920's and the and then again in the 60's, is the bob set to sweep away all before it and reign again in 2013?

 

First lady of hair Jennifer Aniston certainly thinks so as she posted a photo of her new shoulder length bob haircut alongside her long term hairdresser Chris McMillan on Instagram earlier this month.

 

And she is not alone with stars such as January Jones, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Natalie Portman and Lilly Collins all sporting shorter hair styles.

 

If you're tempted to overhaul your look and go shorter then there are plenty of images around in fashion magazines at the moment for you to use as inspiration with fabulous bobs from Hollywood A-listers, music stars and models from the catwalk fashion scene. The modern bob has been seen in wavy styles, super sleek and straight cuts, with subtle and drastic grades and even with ombre colouring. There's a beautiful bob hairstyle out there for everyone.

 

Find the bob to compliment your face shape

There are important considerations when choosing your ideal bob hairstyle. A short bob is perfect for women with a square face and strong jawbone, while longer layers work well for women with round features.
