• If you're less than eager to chop off your long hair but are dying to give the celebrity-beloved bob a try, there's still hope: With a lot of bobby pins and a little bit of awkward arm maneuvering (or, better yet, a helpful friend as an assistant), you, too, can sport a bob without sacrificing your length to the god of scissors.

    Lea Michele

    Lea's blunt bangs and blonde ombre give this look a cool, beachy vibe. Spritz a texturizing spray on hands and scrunch loose front pieces for a similar look.

  • Leighton Meester
    This loose, undone bob is one of our favorites—the side flip and curled tendrils around the face make it super-sultry, like you've just come from a roll in the hay.

  • Taylor Swift
    This faux bob is perfect for long, curly hair—the curls hide bobby pins in the back, so you can just flip it up or under, pin it down, and go.

    Selena's look shows just how classy and elegant a faux bob can be, even for the most upscale of events... like, say, the Oscars.

  • Marion Cotillard
    Leave it to the French stunner to be able to pull off a wavy, even slightly frizzy, asymmetrical faux bob. Create a deep side part and tuck the opposite side behind your ear for a similar look.
