What Is A Micro Bob?

It’s a bob originated in the early 20th century and opposed traditional long hair norms. It’s a haircut that sits at your hairline and is no longer than chin length. A cousin of the chic French bob and elegante Italian bob, the micro bob is most closely related to “Le Petit Bob.”

It has been seen on a multitude of cool girls recently like Carey Mulligan, Ayo Edebiri, Greta Lee, America Ferrera, Michelle Williams, and Julianne Hough. With this kind of exposure on social media and the red carpet, it’s natural that people will feel inspired to cut their hair, too.

How To Get The Look?

One of the best parts about a micro bob is that it’s all about length, not specific styling. You can do anything with it (save for putting it in a ponytail, of course) and it’ll look great. Depending on your mood, you can try it straight or tousled, messy or slicked-back.

Every face shape can pull off the micro bob. However, the haircut needs to be customized for different textures. For super thick and coarse hair, your hair can’t be cut very blunt, or it will look triangular. Hair needs to be textured correctly or slightly layered at the ends to give it movement.  On the opposite end of the texture spectrum, a sharper cut will make fine and thin hair look fuller. Adding a bang will make it look more French while cutting a tiny face frame can give it more of a ’90s feel. Take a look at more ideas below and get inspired!
