One of the most popular haircuts of the year, the Italian bob is “characterized by its chin-skimming length and rounded, face-framing edges,” hairstylist Luke Hersheson previously told Vogue. It features volume, an undone feel and is very subtly layered, plus it works really well when styled into a deep side parting. Everyone from Zendaya to Hailey Bieber have tried the trend.
Model Elsa Hosk recently joined them in getting the cut, swapping her usual slicked-back hair looks for Italian-style effortlessness. In a series of photographs posted on her Instagram page, Hosk showed off the kind of bob that dreams were made of–and we’re taking notes.
As well as featuring sweeping layers and lots of shine, Hosk’s bob was a marriage of next-level root volume and dimensional color–think darker brunette shades underneath and luminous blonde on top – which lent extra body and movement to the style.
Pair with a glossy, deep red lip, and a doe-eyed stare, just like Hosk, and you’ve got the perfect festive beauty look.
