Bob haircuts aren’t every women’s cup of tea and don’t flatter every “style”. However a sure way to get a great versatile haircut is with a long A-line bob. The long A-line bob can be side parted or middle parted. It’s edgy and it’s trendy; some of its celebrity devotees are Emma Stone, Rose Byrne, Khloe Kardashian and Olivia Munn (to mention a few).
However, this haircut is long enough to switch to a different style if you aren’t comfortable with the result. InStyle magazine has branded it as “the hairstyle that suits everyone”. The longer the haircut, the more versatility it will offer. It also offers other benefits: it elongates the neck and gives a statuesque look.
It can also offer more structure to your face and highlight your cheekbones; which are too often covered by layers of long hair and unstructured haircuts which do not flatter (but are regarded as a safe option). Jessica Alba is one of the pin-up celebrities for this movement, who rocks the hairstyle by adding some soft waves. A-line means that the hair is shorter at the back and longer at the front. It frames the front of the face and curls under the chin. With all these benefits to a haircut, and in regards to how flattering it looks, it is a wonder that not more people opt for long A-line bob cut.
