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?

I love this hairstyle.It looks better on Rhianna than Kelly.Victoria Beckham wasn’t the first person either, it was music artist,Kelis

I love this haircut! There are only so many people that can pull it off. You have to have a beautiful face for it, and the people that do not like it just can’t wear the style correctly.

Personally, I love the asymmetrical bob, BUT only if the layers are cut correctly. This style is best for those with smaller faces. Also, in order to pull off the asymmetrical look, you must have a symmetrical face or it will just look awful. NEVER get a hairstylist to do it is they shy away from layers because they will not do the hair justice. I rocked this style for a while and it was fun. When it was time to change it (as I so often do), I turned it into a short shaggy layered look. It is not difficult to change it if you have a hairstylist who knows what they are doing. Those who hate it probably have a set mind on how every person’s hair should look, and to them I say, give something new a try.
