The lob — otherwise known as the "long bob" — is taking over Hollywood!

From Selena Gomez to Christie Brinkley, A-listers can’t get enough of this chic cut. The latest celeb to get scissor happy? Kristin Cavallari.

The blonde bombshell has been sporting longer layers as of late. But on July 22, she stunned fans when she showed off a textured lob via Instagram.

Spontaneity certainly applies here, because it turns out that Cavallari (well, technically hairstylist Riawna Capri) chopped it all off only an hour before modeling in a photo shoot for her jewelry line, Uncommon James. A bold move that we’re totally applauding!

While she may have lost some length, she’s gained serious style points. This cut feels super fresh and modern with a nod to her Cali roots — which got us feeling rather nostalgic. Join us on a stroll down memory lane, as we revisit her looks from the past decade-plus.

Take inspiration from these celebrities who know how to rock shorter styles — plus, get a few styling tips and tricks from hair experts.
