This Fashion Week, it seemed like bobs were back with a vengeance. Models and attendees alike wore them during the New York shows and, thankfully, the cuts were shown off in all textures imaginable. We're onboard, of course: A good, precise haircut has the same effect as a facelift. (Just a whole lot cheaper, easier, and more glamorous.)

We never thought we'd see the day when someone bested Nicki Minaj's ankle-length locks, but leave it to Blac Chyna to take on the challenge. Scroll ahead to see our favorite lengthy looks of the moment.
