Rita Ora's Slamming New Bob

Please join us as we welcome Rita Ora to the ever-growing society of Ladies Who Bob. She reveals her choppy jaw-length crop on Instagram, generously sharing multiple photos on her feed so that we can enjoy it from all angles. It's the kind of cut so gorgeous, we have a feeling it's about to inspire even those who swear by their mermaid locks to take the plunge into shorter waters.
There are a few elements that make this haircut perfect. First of all, it's cut at an A-line angle that perfectly mirrors her jawline, creating an ultra-flattering continuity. Her long side-swept fringe also adds a softer touch to the crop — plus, fringes tend to make bobs super versatile. Ora will be able to easily create all sorts of pompadour-inspired slicked-back situations with the help of those long pieces in front. Finally, it looks just as good tucked loosely behind her ears as it does in her face, making this cut the ultimate 'do for girls who get bored easily.
