Kelly Rowland gets a bob – And we love it!

Kelly Rowland takes the (hair) plunge. 

Stop the press: Kelly Rowland has a bob haircut! The soulful singer has followed in the steps of a numbers of celebrities (Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, Mirranda Kerr, Ashley Graham… the list goes on!) that have taken the plunge and gone for the a beautiful bob. The former Destiny’s Child singer debuted her new ‘do as she hosted the Ben’s Beginners Cooking Contest launch event: Back to the Future Of Cooking earlier on in the week, and also surprised everyone again when she paid a visit to the SiriusXM Studios in New York City!

Kelly Rowland’s hair stylist Nikki Nelms posted a video on Instagram yesterday, showcasing the new “Kelly Rowland bob”. The post described that the singer and her hair stylist had decided over mango Margaritas (our kind of gal!) to “go a bit shorter on the bob” she had cut yesterday.

We have to admit the change in Kelly’s hairstyle came as a bit of a shock to us, as we’re used to seeing her with her signature long hair. But her new hairstyle seems to be proof enough that the bob really is a versatile cut – and worked the right way, can suit just about anyone!
