If you hadn't realized already, 2021 is the year of the bob. Whether it's the blunt bob, the shaggy '70s bob, or the bob with bangs, everyone is opting for this on-trend style. 

The latest in a long line of celebrities opting for the chop is Jonathan Van Ness (after the likes of Penelope Cruz and Chrissy Teigan). 

Jonathan Van Ness is used to a big reveal moment, thanks to his role on Queer Eye as the resident style guru. But this time he's basking in his own salon moment, opting for a long and retro messy bob that shows off his stunning curls. 

Jonathan paid a visit to stylist and friend Sherene The Queen for his hair makeover. After spending some time in the chair, Jonathan proudly posted a picture on Instagram showing off his new bob hairstyle.   

'The 70’s called and said their silhouettes are coming back STRONG! New cut by @sherenethequeen'

Fans were quick to compliment Jonathan on his new look, with the comments coming in thick and fast after he posted the snap.

'Omg your curls as beautiful as your soul,' wrote one on Instagram. 

While another said, 'This cut is EVERYTHING.' A third wrote, 'Omg please do a curl care video!!'

Another wrote, 'Alexa, play “Body” by Megan Thee Stallion...This hair is FULL.' 

Bobs are definitely having a moment. Countless celebrities are swapping long, flowing locks for blunt bobs. 

Not to mention that bobs are apparently the most hygienic haircut to opt for.

Bob maintenance can get a bad rep as being time-consuming, but keeping a bob looking fresh isn't as difficult as you might think. 

Regular trims and a good at-home blow-out technique are the basics, plus a pair of the best straighteners for smoothing out the style. Once you’ve got your bob hairstyle, learning how to style a bob becomes easy.

We love the new look!
