This summer, when Kaia Gerber chopped her long strands into a bob haircut, she called it a “drama cut,” and that’s the energy we’re hoping to bring into fall. We’re ready to trade in beachy, mermaid hair for a back-to-business bob. And don’t worry—as these other celebrity bob looks prove, there’s nothing boring about this throwback, short style.

Stars like Jordyn Woods and Ciara are sporting modern-looking asymmetrical bobs, while Emily Ratajkowski is going old Hollywood with hers. New celebrity bobs are black, brunette, and blonde, and they’re super short or shoulder-grazing lobs. (And yes, okay, some are wigs, but they look incredible, so how could we leave them out?)

The bottom line: A bob can look stunning on all different hair types, textures, and colors. For style inspo, check out our favorite new celebrity bob cuts so you can send them over to your stylist.

Kaia Gerber

Check out Gerber’s aforementioned “drama cut.” We’re ready, Kaia.

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato made a dramatic chop back in April, but it seems like she’s riding this new bob straight into the new season.

Emilia Clarke

Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke ditched Daenerys Targaryen’s long, icy blonde locks and is now rocking a brunette bob. (But don’t worry—to us, you’re still the Mother of Dragons, Emilia.)

Jordyn Woods

Jordyn’s bold, asymmetrical bob is so modern and chic. For anyone who thinks bobs are basic, let this one convince you otherwise.

Camila Mendes

It seems like Veronica Lodge was channeling Betty Cooper in this long bob, aka lob, wig, and fans were totally loving it.

Hailey Bieber

Earlier this summer, Bieber drastically chopped off her long hair, but then she went even more dramatic for an Interview magazine photoshoot. She debuted a brunette bob (which is probably a wig), and it seriously made us do a double-take because she’s so known for being a blonde.

Though Emrata has already gone back to her long hair, we totally fell for this glam bob.

Camila Cabello

Okay, we know this was just for a music video look, but it was seriously a lewk. We wouldn’t be mad at all if Camila Cabello decided to actually go for a blonde bob.

Reese Witherspoon

Witherspoon traded in her classic long locks for a “summer cut,” as she calls it. We love it so much, we think she should keep it going for autumn.

Khloe Kardashian

After rocking mermaid-long hair this summer, Khloe went back to a blonde bob in an Instagram post yesterday, August 20th.


Ciara’s stacked bob is giving us ’90s Posh Spice energy, and we’re seriously in love. She debuted the look in an Instagram post on August 16th.

Lindsay Lohan

Is it us, or is LiLo’s lob reminiscent of her Parent Trap days?

Kate Beckinsale

Since posting this haircut photo on July 26th, Beckinsale has kept the blonde bob look with dark roots. It seems she fell in love with the cut, and we can see why.

Michelle Williams

We feel like Michelle Williams growing out her signature pixie cut into a bob is a direct plan to bring her hair back to her Dawson’s Creek style, and we won’t be convinced otherwise.

We’re inspired to go short! What better time than the changing of seasons to get a fresh new look?
