32 of the best Bob hairstyles for your next haircut

My hair has recently reached that awkward mid-length. It is no longer medium length lob that I visited the hairdressers last year, but it cannot quite be considered one long hairstyle yet. Instead, it sits rather uninspiringly on my shoulders, making me seriously consider going for the chop. I have experimented with shorter hairstyles over the years, but never made the leap to a full-on bob.

But with my Instagram feed starting to fill up with drama haircuts, I have to admit that I am seriously tempted to forget my lengths in favor of something shorter, choppier and infinitely cooler. And a quick look online confirmed that Bob may just be the fall hairstyle. So many celebrities have undergone major short hair transformations over the last year and their styles look seriously amazing.
