Many of us have become somewhat obsessed with mid length styles and more specifically the blonde bob cut. This is very apparent in the entertainment industry as celebrities who have almost always rocked long tresses are opting for shorter styles with varying shades of blonde for an edgy, updated look. And I am a fan of most of the changes…but there are a few ladies who knocked it out of the park for me.
I’m not sure, but I think it may be safe to place Ciara squarely at the helm of the blonde bob trend. With her amazing cheekbones and overall gorgeous face and body, she can pretty much rock anything and look great but my favorite look on her of all time is the longer bob that just skims her shoulders. Sexy sexy mama!
Queen Beyonce is also hugely responsible for the popularity of this trend, although I have to admit – most of her versions of the blonde bob are a miss for me. I don’t know…the angles are too sharp, the hair too flat? Make no mistake about it – Bey is a stunning woman and nothing looks bad on her per se, but I just don’t think this look works. I prefer Beyonce with long tresses that she whips harder than life while belting out LOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEE!
I love me some Adrienne Bailon. I’m a little old to have been a fan of the Cheetah Girls franchise, instead I mainly remember her of the short lived R&B group 3LW. Nowadays, I’m happy she has a job as one of the co-hosts of the daytime talk show The Real along with another blonde bob bombshell, Tamar Braxton. I’ve never been a fan of any of the popular panel talk shows but I seriously canNOT wait until the new season airs. In any event, after the test run she decided to change up her signature long blonde locks in favor of a choppy, shorter cut. I’m on the fence about this one…some days I like it, others I don’t.
It’s no secret I have a slight (okay maybe big) girl crush on Ashanti. I love her makeup, most of her fashion choices, and yes of course HAIR! She has been known to rock free flowing locks, updos and ponytails but always with long hair. At the 2014 Grammy Awards however, she debuted this amazing blonde bob look that is just perfection! The gentle graduation of the cut, the color, the sideswept bangs and lightly tousled looking curls – it doesn’t get any better than this kids! I think she should definitely keep this look for a lil while!
Lastly let’s talk about friend in my head, three time Grammy nominated artist Tamar Braxton! I was soooooo rooting for her to take home at least one of the awards, especially after I saw her on the red carpet looking slim and sexy in a fitted red gown with a (long overdue) new hairstyle! This is by far the best look I’ve ever seen on Tamar. With her love of over the top everything – makeup, shoes, and clothes – when paired with the huge wigs she previously rocked, it was team too much. The only other time we’ve had a glimpse of Tamar in a shorter style is in her video for ‘All The Way Home’ as seen above…and I loved it then also. Go Tay! #SheWon!
