Bob Hairstyle Pictures

A bob haircut is a chin- or jaw-length haircut, cut at the same length all the way around the head. Some bobs have bangs in the front, but it's not an ironclad requirement.

The bob was originally a haircut for little children. In the 1920s, film stars like Louise Brooks (pictured above), Colleen Moore and Clara Bow popularized the style. It became seen as a statement of female independence and freedom from social constraints.

The style has come in and out of fashion, with different iterations, such as a bob with the front section longer than the back, framing the face and exposing the neck.
