With the timeless appeal of a Chanel suit and the unbeatable range of a good pair of jeans, it’s no surprise that the bob is fashion’s most beloved haircut. As the latest star to go short, Emma Stone was spotted arriving in Italy earlier this week with her long, boho waves chopped to a blunt, just-above-the-shoulder length that felt as casual as her black V-neck tee. The next day, at the Venice film festival, the actress wore her abbreviated crop with a floor-length Valentino dress for an effect that was every bit as fresh and unfussy as the actress herself. Stone’s new look offers a case study in the extraordinary versatility of an above-the-shoulder cut—and a quick look back at summer’s best beauty moments provides more styling options yet. From Jennifer Lawrence’s polished surfer girl texture to Gemma Arterton’s sleek, sixties-inspired blowout and Clémence Poésy’s insouciant, lived-in blonde crop, here are six reasons why the bob is here to stay.
