While plenty of stars are currently rocking long beach waves, Summer 2017 has also seen the rise and rise of the bob. Among the Hollywood set, longer bobs and the cropped shag haircut have been making waves the past couple of seasons. However, celebrities are now also turning to the classic chin-length bob haircut as the weather warms. In fact, Kerry Washington and Nina Dobrev have both recently embraced cropped haircuts.
Washington recently stepped out with a sharp, angular bob which featured short front bangs. Her dark and straightened locks almost evoked a Cleopatra-like vibe, while the sharply cropped hairstyle flattered her bone structure and features. The Scandal star managed to look sophisticated and effortlessly beautiful with her new ‘do.

Meanwhile, Nina Dobrev has also traded her mane for a slightly wavy brunette bob. The former Vampire Diaries star tucked one half of her bob behind an ear, for a subtly sexy effect. Unlike Washington’s more angled look, Dobrev’s youthful and flirty take on the hairstyle also features plenty of texture.
It certainly seems that more and more Hollywood beauties are turning to the bob. Whether you prefer old school glamour or a slightly tousled approach to short hair, there are certainly a few versatile ways to sport this look.
