The world has seen many incarnation of the classic bob—The inverted, the stacked, the A-line, the short-layered, and box-layered. It is back this season in its latest reincarnation: the triangle. True to its name, the bob has two angles with the same measure and two sides with the same length. The sleek straight finish is utterly timeless, but a neckline undercut and long layered side bangs make it fresh and ‘on trend,’ whether worn sweeping across the eye or tucked behind the ear. “This cut flatters the feminine shape of the neck and also the jawline,” says Jamie Myrick of David Alexander’s Salon and Spa. She believes the triangle bob balances drama and elegance and for the adventurous can even be taken up a notch with more dramatic angling and neck shaving.
