8 celebrity-approved medium bob hair looks you’ll want to copy this year
1. Textured mid-length bob
Out of the thousands of hairstyles on Pinterest, the most pinned ‘do was the textured medium bob. Just look at how Ashley Benson rocks it and then you’ll understand why everyone (including us) is so obsessed with it— cool, right?
2. Wavy bob
Fit for a fancy brunch or an all-night dance marathon, this flawless medium-length bob hairstyle strikes the perfect balance between neat and statement-making.
Editor’s tip: Believe it or not, wavy medium bob haircuts hold better when you spritz them with a creation hairspray. We particularly like the VO5 Wave Creation Hairspray, which will give your mane hold and a natural-looking finish.
3. Sleek mid-length bob
A medium-length bob that’s been styled to sleek perfection, just like Hailey Baldwin has here, makes this otherwise casual hairstyle all the more fashion-forward.
4. A-line cut bob
When you get bored of a blunt cut, you can easily add a directional edge to your medium-length bob hairstyle by opting for an A-line cut, (a la Jessica Szohr).
This high-impact cut exudes a tonne of fierce feminine vibes, plus helps soften out an angular face shapes. Aren’t medium bob haircuts super fun?
5. Medium shag hairstyle
Simply adding in some feathery bangs to an otherwise simple medium bob hairstyle will instantly give your locks a mega-dose of ’70s charm. But the best thing? As your locks grow out, your hair will look even better.
Since short shaggy hairstyles are back for good, not only will you be rocking two trends in one, but you’ll able also showing those around you just how cool medium-length bob hairstyles can be. #Slay! Credit: @hungvanngo

Editor’s tip: To really make your curls #slay, work a small amount of the Toni&Guy Curl Lock Oil throughout your mane, for a frizz-free, high-impact finish!
