If you're thinking of going for the chop this autumn, then there couldn't be a better time. After supermodel Karlie Kloss made a bold statement by cutting her long tresses in to a cropped bob
, a raft of other women in the limelight followed suit.
Providing instant personality and stand-out from the sea of long-haired supermodels, Karlie set the trend in 2013 for statement haircuts
that turn heads. The key to the current bob hairstyle
trend? Ensure your look doesn't appear too 'done'. A fringe is optional (but we all know it can take years off!) and the effect is to look fresh and modern with a natural, sometimes wavy style.
Avoid the rollers at all costs - a severely turned under style should be eschewed. Instead, separate your fringe and dry this smooth, then rough dry the remainder of the cut and finally tong individual sections if you'd like to create movement and a beachy effect.
Styling products like the new Kerastase Spray A Porter,
favoured by Kate Moss, help to create texture and definition. So if you're feeling inspired - and brave enough to take the plunge - flick through these short bob hairstyles
for inspiration ahead of your salon trip...
