It was the chop heard 'round the world. In December of 2012, supermodel Karlie Kloss cut her mid-back length hair into a bob that hit mid-neck, for a Vogue feature. Rumor has it, she cried while her long locks were hitting the floor -- but all tears aside, she's stuck with the chic cut ever since. Once her new style debuted, stars from all walks lined up outside of the salon to follow suit, creating a tidal wave of long bobs throughout Hollywood and beyond.
Light or dark, smooth or wavy, Kloss's long bob always looks fashionable and flattering. No matter what your face shape or style, this versatile look can give you an instant upgrade into chic-dom!
Works Best On: Everyone! The long bob is one of the most versatile cuts around. With a few tweaks (i.e. bangs or no bangs, heavy or light layering), this cut can work on any face shape or hair type.
What to Avoid: Too-short layers are the long bob's kryptonite. The secret to this flattering face-framer is to keep things long and loose. Make sure to tell your stylist to start layers under the chin.
