Would You Try an Asymmetrical Bob Like Rihanna and Kellie?

05/23/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

Blame it on Victoria Beckham — every since she razored off her hair, we’ve been seeing more and more stars crop their locks in asymmetrical bobs like hers (even husband David!). And they’re proving that you don’t need Posh’s bone structure to pull it off. Rihanna and Kellie Pickler gave major jolts to their overall looks with their sleek styles. L.A. based celeb stylist Umberto Savone tells PEOPLE that “more and more women are coming in looking for it. The asymmetrical bob is a very good summer look if it’s cut right.” But a word to the wise — show your stylist some photos to make sure you’re getting the look you want, and not a Flock of Seagulls redux. Tell us: Is this a look you would try? Would you wear an asymmetrical bob?

NO!! I don’t like these severe angles. If your going to bob it, bob it! Otherwise, layers belong on long hair.

I wouldn’t personally wear that hairstyle but I think Rihanna’s looks better. Kellie’s just looks awkward.

I wore an asymmetrical bob….back in the 80’s! But I guess what goes around, comes around, eh?

enigma on

I agree with Summer too!! bobs should be bobs!! bob it!!

Why is Victoria Beckham getting credit for this hairstyle? Jenny McCarthy sported it first, and on her it looks gorgeous!

I think these hairdo’s look ridiculous. It always makes the person look like they have to hold their head a certain way and that thay are uncomfortable.

Speaking of this exact haircut…..I went last week to get my LONG (bra strap level) hair cut like Kellie Pickler, not knowing it looks just as it does in this picture above (I don’t watch Idol). I only saw this haircut as a picture on the CMA website from the side. I have a MESS! I thought my hair looked bad last week after the first cut… then I went back & had the hairdresser even things up a bit, and by the time she was thru my hair went from bra strap level, to should level, and now it is just at my chin (like Jamie Eason). This is a very hard cut to get right. If you are not careful you will end up w/the bell look. I’m going back again today to have just a little more cut…I’ll never ever, ever be STUPID again and do this… But this is a very cute cut if you can get it right. I’ve had alot of complements. If you decide to do this, make sure you go to someone that will cut layers almost all the way around the bottom of your head…that is the trick to keep from getting the bell effect. Oh well, it will be cool for summer.

Nah, not a fan of this look. Although I do agree with Kim, it did look good on Jenny McCarthy.

glad on

i checked out the ‘sleek bob hair’ in this fashion blog:
and generally, i prefer Victoria Beckham’s ex-hairstyle, the bob hair. i think she set thetrend and everyone is following her…? according to the post, bob hairs are really in at the moment
