• Taylor Swift We never thought T. Swift would part with her signature mermaid waves, but after several years in the spotlight, she finally went for the chop in a big way. Taylor's versatile cut is sophisticated and versatile, and it lends itself particularly well to this type of classic styling.

  • Emma Roberts We have serious bob envy in the case of Emma's sleek, shiny cut. Long layers and face-framing curls are flattering and unexpected on this abbreviated length.

  • Emma Watson Emma has succeeded in growing out her gamine post-"Potter" pixie in style. A smooth center part, large barrel waves, and a touch of height at the crown alludes to slightly retro glamour that still seems contemporary.

  • Katy Perry Katy's blunt bob, complete with eyebrow-grazing bangs, is as classic as they come.

  • Kristen Wiig Kristen shocked fans when she lopped off her long locks in favor of a sleek to-the-chin bob earlier this year.
  • Alexa Chung Alexa Chung has truly perfected the long bob. With ombre highlights and a length that goes just beyond her shoulders, this style will look good on anyone—even as it grows out.

  • January Jones The Mad Men actress never wears her long bob the same way twice. To get these waves, use a curling iron to curl hair away from the face.

  • Kerry Washington Kerry wears her lob straight and curly, but we especially love the messy texture on this shoulder-skimming look. To replicate the style, curl pieces of hair at random with a curling iron, and then use a flat iron to go over the ends.

  • Lily Collins Lily has similar texture to Kerry's style, but without the bangs. For a boost in volume, copy her deep side part.

  • Marion Cotillard Marion Cotillard wore a more angular lob to the Golden Globes awards earlier this year, pairing the look with side-swept bangs. To keep hair smooth all night, try rubbing a dime-size amount of John Frieda Frizz-Ease Sheer Solution ($9.99, drugstore.com) into hands and then distributing through hair, starting at the ends.

  • Nicole Kidman Nicole Kidman looks seriously elegant in this classic haircut, that extends just past her shoulders. We hope this means she's said goodbye to long extensions for good!

  • Nicole Richie Nicole recently went back to a lob and blunt bangs, which accentuate her eyes. We love this length, which hovers just above her shoulders.
