We thought we loved the bob—there's something about the blunt cut that's so definitive and chic. But after watching top hairstylists transform the same cut six different ways on this year's numerous red (and silver!) carpets, now we're obsessed.

Reese Witherspoon
Celebrity hairstylist Lona Vigi whipped up the ultimate sleek, straight lob to perfectly pair with Witherspoon's showstopping gown for the 2020 SAG Awards.

Mrs. Maisel herself got a last-minute bob chop by hairstylist Own Gould ahead of the SAG Awards.

Michelle Williams
The only thing more classic-glam than a bold red lip and a black gown? Williams' retro A-line bob, styled by celebrity hairstylist Peter Lux. 

Naomi Watts

After a late-night chop ahead of the Golden Globes, celebrity hairstylist Renato Campora used Biolage Styling Whipped Volume Mousse to give Watts’ new bob some major volume.


Zoey Deutch
Inspired by the “dramatic lines and proportions of Zoey’s custom Fendi Couture Jumpsuit,” celebrity hairstylist Gregory Russell says he wanted to create an elegant, sleek and structured look. The result: this flirty, flippy bob we'll be sporting this weekend. 

Greta Gerwig
The secret behind Gerwig’s sleek strands: TRESemmé Smooth Dry Oil Spray, a launch celebrity hairstylist John D. describes as “lightweight and the perfect way to tame flyaways and add shine.”

The perfect way to balance this show-stopping dress is a sleek, simplistic bob, courtesy of Washington’s long-time hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew. To get the look, she used Tea Tree Hair Care Lavender Mint Conditioning Leave In “on her clean, natural hair before hitting it with some Neuro Hair Tools.” 

Lucy Boynton
Celebrity hairstylist Jenny Cho absolutely nailed this textured, voluminous bob and completed Boynton's look with hair accessories from New York–based accessory line Lelet.
