Move Over Choppy Lobs, Long Hair Is Baaaack

For a while, it seemed like bobs were back with a vengeance. From the icy streets of New York City to bellisimo Milano, everybody and their mom, cousin, sister-in-law, and doorman were all wearing short, chin-length cuts in all textures — and with bangs. We get it, of course: A good, precise haircut has the same effect as a facelift. Just a whole lot cheaper.
Short hair is cool, but we still care about long hair. And so do stars like Nicki Minaj, Beyoncé, and Shay Mitchell. They're playing up their looks with extensions that go above and beyond... as in, literally beyond their butts. Nicki's new hair nearly reaches her ankles.
Scroll ahead to see our favorite lengthy looks of the moment.
