Several months into 2023 and we are spoiled for choice when it comes to selfie-worthy haircut trends. But as the weather gets nicer you might feel the desire to ditch your long locks for a fresh chop — and that’s where trendy bob haircuts come in. 
So far this year, the oval layer haircut has taken over hair salons and social media feeds. Taking inspiration from the '90s, each layer is cut and styled in a way that looks like oval shapes hugging the face from the mid-lengths to the ends. Then came '70s shapes, the ultra-short afro and concave layers. Still, it's fair to say that nothing has outshone them all quite like the bob.
On TikTok, the hashtag #bobhaircut has amassed an impressive 596.4 million views and counting as hairstylists across the globe showcase all manner of styles, from the Italian bob (blunt and voluminous) to the boyfriend bob (super short and not for the faint of heart). And the classic cut just keeps on giving.
These 14 bobbed hair trends are a cut above the rest, according to the hottest hair experts.
