Hair trends come and go, but the bob is much more than a trend: It's a classic. No matter the decade, the colour, the texture, or the variation — sci-fi bobs, '90s bobs, grown-out lobs — a shoulder-length cut is never a bad idea. And lately, we've been seeing a lot of air-dry enthusiasts embracing the wavy bob... with good reason. We first spotted the cut on the Louis Vuitton Fall 2018 runway, and on the tousled heads of the chicest French girls soon after that. Now, we're obsessed.
