27 Reasons I’m Going For the Hairstyle I Thought I Didn’t Want This Year

After a certain point, the only part of award season I’m actually excited about is the red carpet. Once the Golden Globes and SAG Awards are done, the frontrunners have usually emerged and it becomes almost too easy to predict who will win everything else. Such was the case this year when the same four actors swept their respective categories nearly everywhere including the Academy Awards. If it weren’t for the parade of fashion and beauty moments on my Instagram feed, I would have tuned out completely. But much to my surprise, the overwhelming amount of celebrity bob hairstyles like, everywhere, has already put my plans for 2020 on pause.

After big-chopping last year, I thought I’d be sticking with a buzzcut at least until summer. And after that, I didn’t plan to let my hair grow longer than an inch or two. I’m more than comfortable with waking up in the morning, running a little foam conditioner through my strands and running out the door because it looks cute and it saves time. The last thing I expected to convince me otherwise was the red carpet because what usually comes to mind is “wow, that probably took forever to do.” However, a style as classic as the bob is too versatile to be a one-trick pony. As evidenced by Amandla Stenberg, Kerry Washington, Margot Robbie and the many others who did their own version this year, it can be curled, blown-out, wet, dryname it and it can probably be done.

So in a rare moment, I’m taking back everything I said about keeping my hair short indefinitely. Whether it’s a faux version or the real deal, I’ll probably be rocking a bob before year’s end thanks to all of this gorgeous red carpet inspo and a couple of stylers on my wishlist.
