The bob is one of the most enduring haircuts of the last century and is still one of the most requested styles. The pixie has been popular since the late 1950’s, and has remained popular and recently has made a strong comeback. Combine the two and you get the pob. This hairstyle has the short cute look of a pixie and the versatility of the bob. Celebrities are sporting the look and here we see beautiful Katherine Heigl with a new cut and color. This style is extremely friendly to all face shapes and you can wear it like Katherine brushed back from your face and with a bit of volume, or you can wear it curled under more in the style of a traditional bob.
Victoria Beckham made the pob popular back in 2007 and since then it has been a popular style for celebrities and women all around the country. Victoria’s pob was more along the lines of a short graduated bob, while Katherine’s runs more toward the pixie. You don’t have to have straight hair to wear the pob. If you have some wave or have curl in your hair, a pob looks great with some texture. You can use a flat iron and wear it sleek or use a small barrel curling iron to give it some curl and wave. If you want a bit of volume, apply a small bit of mousse to the roots and use your blow dryer and a large barrel brush to lift the roots and add some height. No matter how you style it you’ll find the pob a very easy cut to style and maintain. Ask your stylist to tailor a pob for your hair texture and face shape.
