History of The Bob

The bob haircut is an ever fashionable style that first made its appearance in the 1920s and has reappeared, as the trend, many times since.

The style was, at first, shocking as women who previously prided themselves on long, luxurious hair, chopped off their locks in a show of independence and equality with men. The original style was worn straight and flat on top or waved with a Marcel iron.

A style is a 'bob' if it is cut with a weighted area falling anywhere from just below the ears to just below the chin.

Over the years, the cut has been modified by adding bangs or taking them away, stylized by cutting one side short while leaving the other long, texturised, permed, waved, poofed and flattened, but it is always unmistakably a bob.
