We've officially spotted the haircut of 2014: a chin-grazing, ultra-piece-y, wavy bob. Of course, it's not unusual to see multiple celebs with the same 'do, but what is striking about this trend is that the style is proving to be universally flattering. Regardless of age or face shape, the messy baby bob just works. It's a lot like the lob trend before it, but a little bit edgier and more daring.
Interestingly, the women we've seen with this style have arrived at it from different ends of the haircut spectrum. The baby bob functions as the goal length for those trying to grow out a pixie while also serving as a bold short-hair move for women with typically longer locks. Additionally, we'd be lying by omission if we didn't mention that, currently, 50% of our beauty department has this 'do. It's just such an easy way to have a short cut that's still versatile.
