The White Lotus effect is real and the Italian bob is here. When you think Italy, you probably think of warm, citrus-scented breezes, Aperol spritzes and brightly colored, retro-inspired sundresses and shades—Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, Gwyneth Paltrow in The Talented Mr. Ripley, Monica Vitti in L’Avventura. There’s a carefree sexiness and warmth to these sunny looks, and you can easily channel it with just a few strategic snips. It’s time to say “Ciao!” to the Italian bob.
The Italian bob has a fresh, vibrant ‘60s allure thanks to its blunt, chunky ends that add weight without making the hair feel heavy. Kaia Gerber has sported the cut, as has Elizabeth Olsen—and you can too, whether you’re a seasoned short hair professional or just thinking about letting go of length. The cut gives you more styling versatility and movement, making it perfect for someone who likes to change up their style from day to day instead of sticking to a signature look—not to mention anyone who likes short hair but wants the ability to pull it up in a chic twist or a ponytail on the regular.
When the hair is cut with no particular parting, it can be flipped and moved around from one side to the other, looking slightly different each time. Great news, right?
