It's not news that 2020 has been a very different kind of year for many different reasons. Despite the socially restricted parameters the world has faced for months, there has not (surprisingly) been any shortage of amazing celebrity hair inspiration. Salons may have been (or are still) closed for the better part of 2020, but our favorite members of the A-list have proven to be ultra-resilient on the cool hair front.
One style, in particular, that's continued to burn brightly are bobs and lobs, and for the past few years and into 2020, celebrities have been shedding their extensions or natural length in favor of chic bob hairstyles that are short, long, and anywhere in between. To take the popular haircut trend even further, they've been adding detailed accents like headbands, clips, and braids aplenty in addition to pops of unexpected color—from platinum blonde to baby pink. Ahead, we're sharing 20 short bob hairstyles our favorite celebrities have been endorsing recently and which, we have a feeling, might just inspire you to try the cut out yourself. (Once it's safe to see your styling professional again, that is.) Keep scrolling!
In addition to her perpetually chic fashion sense, we're bewitched time and time again by Graham's signature short bob hairstyle which she pairs with another one of our favorite hair trends: wispy bangs.
Gerber's been working her cropped hair for a while now, but she has kept us on our toes with her color choices. Most recently, she has us seeing pink.
Lucy Hale might have one of the most iconic (and inspirational) short bobs in Hollywood. We're infatuated with the glassy-finish of her polished waves.
Shayk epitomizes the versatility and stunning result of pin-straight styling.
The singer is the ultimate color chameleon, but she has remained 100% loyal to this face-framing cut. (Which she most typically styles with perfectly undone bends and waves.)
Jones loves a great hair accessory moment, and we're especially into this sparkly thin headband she shared on Instagram recently. Shop a similar option at the end this story.
One of the reasons bobs are so beloved within the industry is due to how low-maintenance they are. Here, Shahidi shows off her natural curls and a mask (duh).
Kloss has actually been growing out her chin-length bob, but here's a screenshot-worthy throwback to when her (now) lobbed hair was a titch shorter. Oh, and if anyone thought short bob hairstyles lacked bounce and body, they now stand corrected.
We're pretty sure this is a wig since Smalls typically wears her hair back-grazingly long, but we're no less enamored by her blunt, bang-trimmed take on the short bob hairstyle trend.
Gonzalez's chin-length bob oozes Old Hollywood glamour thanks to lots of glossy shine and lush, pristinely swoopy curls.
One of the easiest ways to style your short bob? Slicked back à la Zoey Deutch. (Bonus points if you try out her rich auburn hair color as well.)
We could stare at Garner's plunging side part and piecey curls for hours. Add a pop of bright lipstick and lots of mascara to enhance the look's classic stance.
If you haven't heard of the Lord Farquaad hair trend (remember Shrek?), Selena Gomez (along with other celebs like Kim Kardashian, Lucy Hale, and many more) are here to remind you that's it's still very much a thing.
We idolized Tia and Tamera Mowry's hair circa Sister, Sister in the '90s, but we have to say that we're partial to Tamera Mowry's natural curls which (very chicly) hit right about chin-length.
Laura Harrier can do no wrong in our book, but this touseled short bob hairstyle has to be one of our all-time favorite hair moments from the Hollywood star.
We're used to seeing the singer sporting super-long braids, but we're just as mesmerized by her naturally curly bob.
We're not sure what we love most—Stenberg's chic short bob hairstyle, her braids, her pristine platinum hue, or those super-chunky barrettes.
We couldn't contain our excitement when Condor chopped off her long hair a while back, and we're still just as enamored. (We'll be trying her volume-inducing side-part ASAP.)
We always keep an eye on Sanders's hair vibe. (Because yes, it's just always that good.) Here lies proof short bob hairstyles look divine paired with natural texture and curl—minimal maintenance and styling necessary.
Do like model Jourdan Dunn and don't stop at braiding a chin-length bob, why not take it further by adding lots of metallic accessories?
