10 Absolute Best Messy Bobs

We can’t get enough of the bob around here. The haircut is a style juggernaut. Even though it’s been around for ages, in 2015 its level of popularity skyrocketed. Suddenly everyone—from those on the red carpets of Hollywood to the gray concrete sidewalks of Anytown, USA—was sporting a bob.

It seems like we’re all pretty heavily in favor of the bob continuing its domination, because we’re well into 2016 and the bob is hotter than ever. That means it’s officially time to crown our favorite bob looks. Seeing as how messy, choppy waves make our hearts leap and our knees weak, we’ve done a roundup of the best messy bobs. So go on . . . gawk, stare, shed a tear for their tousled glamour.

1. Emma Stone’s Choppy Ginger-Red Bob with Side Bangs


Emma Stone always kills with her bangs. When you throw in a chunky, messy red bob, you’ve got a lethal style combination. The fullness of her bangs and those choppy ends are to-die-for. Though she’s clearly glammed up in this picture, this hairstyle would work perfectly with a more casual outfit.
