The ’90s Crop Bob is shorter, grainier, and fresher. Here is the whole Inspo
Bobs aren’t going anywhere. The fact that they’ve become synonymous with cool girlish cuts and sultry with off-the-shoulder shoulders cemented them as one of the most must-have styles – especially since we left lockdown feeling overwhelmed and ready for a chop.
Best of all, they’re versatile and suitable for everyone, whether you want a glossy and preppy finish, or something a little more messy and casual. “There are a lot of different bobs. I think they’re all great, it’s just a matter of whether you want something a little more polished, or if you want something a little more grainy.” , said Luc Hersheson, leading hairdresser in London and CEO of Hershesons living room. “There is no right or wrong.”
One style we’ve seen picking up speed is a throwback we’re ready to give a modern twist. The “crop bob” is the relaxed, slightly shorter iteration that marked the ’90s.
Inspired by Cameron Diaz to Something About Mary …

… or Kim Kardashian’s Drew Barrymore-inspired chop.
Lately we’ve seen retro style undergo a cool revival from model Hannah Kleit, whose more scruffy approach is cool and super wearable.
We asked Luke how to pull off the look. âIt all depends on how it was cut. It’s not too specific, âhe says. âIt’s more hacked – so he’s trying to get what a haircut looks like six weeks later than a day after. It should feel a bit lived-in, meaning you can relax slightly on the styling front.
“Cream almost everything Hershesons it’s good to give that parted, biting, ’90s texture. “says Luke,” But it’s not really about pinching or something too artificial, it’s more about letting your hair dry on its own, put them behind your ears, put some cream on them and get that next day hair look.
Smoky and straightforward, this is a cut that sounds great on our street.
