Many people have been talking about the “power bob” when it comes to 2022 trending hairstyles. Amy Abramite, the creative director and stylist at Maxine Salon, told Real Simple how HBO’s “Succession” is responsible for the trend of short, blunt chops. This bob is one you can easily see from the 1920s style roots, but cropped up again throughout pop culture, from Uma Thurman in “Pulp Fiction” to Rosamund Pike in “Gone Girl.”
While this bob is great for those who want to make a statement with their blunt cut, there’s a different type of bob that’s showing up everywhere: the collarbone bob. Reese Witherspoon, Brie Larson, and Julia Roberts have all been spotted wearing this longer, more laid-back version of the bob.
Celebrity hairstylist Harry Josh explained to Glamour Magazine the collarbone bob is versatile while still having the “impact of a bob.” With the longer length, you still have the option of pulling your hair back in warm weather, which is going to be huge once summer rolls around. Unlike the Anna Wintour-style chopped bob, the collarbone bob has ends that are “very texturized,” Josh explains, making them “softer and wispier.” In the end, you get something more carefree with more versatility.
