20 Chic Short Bob Hairstyles
Short cuts have been all of the rave in 2016. We have had celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence, Beyonce, and even Ciara rocking a shorter head of hair. Many women think that if they go short they will lose their feminine look, but that is totally not true. You can still look feminine by styling with bold earrings, unique makeup looks, bold hair colors, and so much more. Maybe you are not ready to cut your hair, so why not try a weave? Many celebrities, models, designers wear weaves to be able to keep up with ever changing trends.
