The bob hair cut was made famous by Vidal Sassoon in the 1960's but it's a hair style that has been worn throughout history (think 1920's flapper or 1970's men's haircut). Originally created in 1909 by Parisien hairdresser Antoine it was defined as being a hair cut that ended inbetween the bottom of the ear and the jaw line in a weighted section of hair. It really is an 'all time classic' hairstyle worn by the 'liberated woman'. It can be worn with or without a fringe or bangs, with blunt hard edges or softened with layers of hair and even curly or straight. Our collection of bob hair styles spans just 3 years of various shapes and trends but they are all based on the traditional bob hair cut shape.
