BOB

Picture of Bob

The bob is a short hairstyle that was introduced and popularised in 1914 by the dancer Irene Castle, though previously it had been one of the simplest and oldest styles of hair for men. In a bob haircut, the hair is simple or straight, and reaches to below the ear about half-way down the cheek and the ends are curled inwards. The fringe may be combed over or left straight. A variation of the bob is the wind-blown bob in which the hair is wavy rather than straight.
