Summer is here and if you’re thinking of doing a chop but not quite sure where to start, the classic bob is one hairstyle that will always be relevant and safe to try. This spring, we were raving over the bottleneck bob trend, and for the summer, we’re taking it back to a nostalgic favorite: The ‘Boyfriend’ bob.

The most attractive element of the boyfriend bob is its versatility. Any face shape and hair texture can rock the boyband heartthrob style. It can be styled to be manicured and polished with a sleek and chic finish or worn with texture for an edgier look. Bob bombshells such as Kaia Gerber, Maude Apatow and Hunter Schafer have been showing off the sultry trend recently, giving it a more modern shake and twist by showing off a little more neck and keeping it ~haute~ figuratively, not literally.

If you’re itching to try the Boyfriend bob, be sure to have a conversation with your stylist. They’ll surely give you the right chop that best suits your personality and most importantly, your facial features. When you’re out of the stylist’s chair, tag Hypebae Beauty Instagram to show us your new cut.

For more inspiration, take a look at some examples of the trendy cut below.
