Who doesn’t love splurging into the past with some high-end vintage? Regardless of the tacky reputation this hairstyle had in the 1980s, the A-line bob cut is making a comeback that hardly feels dated. 2019 just claimed ownership to the classic look and it’s been re-labeled as trendy, bold, and chic. With summer officially off to a hot start, the current season calls for an up-to-date, low-maintenance hairstyle that makes you feel light and fresh without compromising your personal style.
With an ongoing list of trending celebrities who shamelessly rock this laidback look, they’re here to show that summer 2019 is all about going shorter in the back and longer in the front or vice-versa (layers optional). Think Kris Jenner after she shook the world while debuting her super sleek new ‘do at this year’s Met Gala (which undoubtedly made her look 10 years younger), or Winnie Harlow looking like a modern-day Mia Wallace at the CFDA Awards in Brooklyn this past week.
Whatever the vibe of your everyday look and overall style, the A-line bob cut does all of the work for you–channeling your inner badass even when effortlessly throwing on a pair of blue jeans and a plain tee. In other words, it’s the modern-day bestie for your makeup routine. With the iconic cut making its mark on generations ever since the early 20th century, there’s an abundance of inspiration at our disposal. I mean, have you seen what this cut did for Emily Ratajkowski back in 2017? Just when you thought she couldn’t get any sexier, she slaps us in the face with an A-line bob cut and said, “you thought.”
If any further proof is needed to confirm that this hair trend is the only way to properly make your mark on summer 2019, here’s a jam-packed list of the hottest celebrities who allowed the bold bob to take over.
