It doesn’t matter how long the bob has been around, it is still considered a risky hair move. Why? For starters, there’s the challenge of figuring out if it will actually work with your face shape. Then there’s the fear that you and the stylist wielding those scary scissors won’t have the same vision of what your bob should look like. After all, no one wants to go in for the Cameron Diaz and leave with the Kris Jenner.
Also, when you chop off your hair to chin-length, it leaves little room for mistakes — literally. If the cut is bad, there’s no hiding behind a ponytail or topknot; you’re in for an awkward few months of fervent bobby pinning until your hair grows out.
