THE LONG BOB IS USU­ALLY WORN WITH A CHOP, FLY­AWAY TEX­TURE. NOW THERE HAS BEEN A SWING TO­WARDS A MORE POL­ISHED FIN­ISH

The sum­mer days might be get­ting longer, but when it comes to the fash­ion­able hair­styles, shorter is def­i­nitely bet­ter.

The past few weeks have seen many celebri­ties in­clud­ing Bella Ha­did and Kate Mid­dle­ton go for the chop, sub­tly trans­form­ing their looks in the process. Here are three ways to adopt the trend and keep cool this sea­son.

THE EX­TREME BOB

Bella Ha­did first showed off her shorter tresses back in May at the Met Gala, where she walked the red carpet rock­ing a grad­u­ated bob that al­most grazed her col­lar­bones. But the su­per­model stepped it up a level ear­lier this week by slash­ing off sev­eral more inches, re­sult­ing in a choppy jaw­line length that looks great with a lit­tle sum­mer-in­duced frizz. Is the su­per-short bob set to be­come the next it-girl hair­style?

THE POL­ISHED LOB

Mean­while, the ‘lob’ (or long bob), is more pop­u­lar than ever. Sarah Jes­sica Parker is one of the lat­est stars to jump on the band­wagon, un­veil­ing her new shoul­der-skim­ming waves ear­lier this month. But while the lob is com­monly worn with a choppy, fly­away tex­ture, there has been a swing lately to­wards a more pol­ished fin­ish. Ken­dall Jen­ner, Se­lena Gomez and Sofia Richie are lead­ing the way with their sleek blowouts, of­ten tuck­ing the ends of the hair un­der for a sleeker and more rounded sil­hou­ette.

THE NEW MOB

If a bob is too dras­tic a change, then con­sider what is fast be­com­ing known as the 'mob', or the 'mom bob.' Per­fectly il­lus­trated by The duchess of Cam­bridge, Kate Mid­dle­ton, who re­cently de­lighted the crit­ics by swap­ping her long hair for a much fresher look, the style is a firm nod to fash­ion's cur­rent ob­ses­sion with short hair. The shoul­der­length style looks great worn loose and wavy, like ac­tor Reese Wither­spoon, and can eas­ily be tied back on hot days. In the Duchess of Cam­bridge's case, a quick run-through with the curl­ing tongs is all that is re­quired for a bouncy sum­mer style that is right on trend.
