It’s safe to say I’ve been utterly obsessed with the chin-length bob hairstyles that have emerged on some of my favorite celebs this year. As someone with a bob haircut, I fist pump the air, acting as if I’m the CEO of some invite-only short-hair club when yet another chin-grazing look gets debuted on the red carpet.
But earlier this month, when Elsa Hosk took to her Instagram to share the most insane Marilyn Monroe-inspired ’50s bob––which she paired with a leather Louboutin trench coat, sheer tights, and killer patent heels––I realized I needed to give mine a bit of a glow up.
Since I cut my hair short last year, it’s stayed one length as I eased myself into getting used to it. But I realized my bob actually looked quite heavy, especially as it had grown out. To remedy the situation, I hit up the Larry King hair salon in Notting Hill and booked in with Annie Redman, the hairstylist responsible for Nina Nesbitt’s short blunt bob.
