We felt pretty confident in our assertion that the most universally flattering bob length was the just-above-the-shoulders chop. That is, until this morning, when our eyeballs landed on Kristen Wiig's new 'do. Hello, ideal length, where have you been hiding? Aligning perfectly with her chin, Wiig's new bob takes her overall look from bohemian beauty to sophisticated stunner. While we usually love her go-to wavy texture, the straightness of her locks really adds to the whole effortless-chic thing. Also, the way she has it tucked behind just one ear shows off her killer bone structure without being too severe — proof-positive that deep side parts are always a good idea.

We also can't not talk about her hair color. The glossiness and warm hues are fantastic ways to infuse some glow into a brunette-hair situation, especially during winter. We're definitely adding this photo to our archive of inspiration to show our hairstylist, stat.
