Every year during awards season, the red carpets are full of hair inspiration, from updo’s to brand new haircuts and 2018 was no exception. From the tiny flowers in Haley Bennett’s hair to Lupita N’yong’s traditional Rwandan updo, the hair at the Oscars did not disappoint.
Of all the trends and lewks that stood out, there were several stars that chose the moment to debut one kind of bold, fresh new cut in particular. We’re talking about the many new bobs that saw the flash of the cameras for the first time.
While its sister cut, the lob, has been having a moment the past few years, all signs point to the shorter, bolder bob taking it on. The bob is just as versatile too, as you’ll see below. Style it loosely waved or go for ultimate 90’s-inspired sophistication a straight bob with blunt ends. Or, borrow from some of the other popular red carpet styles, and adorn it with glittery baubles and accessories.
Margot Robbie debuted her bright bob on Oscars night, cut with blunt edges and styled with loose waves.
Wearing her hair stick straight and parted down the center, Saoirse Ronan let her face take center stage.
Greta Gerwig sported perhaps the night’s shortest bob, styled in finger waves for full-on Hollywood glamour.
Haley Bennett brought the romantic vibes with literal wildflowers in her bobbed hair.
