Bobs are fun, sexy, and quite simply eternally chic (just look at our elegantly coiffed First Lady, Michelle Obama!). And it’s one hairstyle that manages to flatter almost every face shape. The only issue? Chopping your hair to somewhere between your shoulders and cheekbones can be somewhat daunting. No matter—as some of the hottest celebs are proving, you can rock a faux bob and no one will be the wiser! Simply gather the length of your hair in your hand, roll it underneath, secure with pins, and leave out a few loose, face framing layers in front. Voila: A fabulous bob that required no cutting! From Kerry Washington to Vivica A. Fox, here are Hollywood’s hottest faux bobs.
