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 cut my hair exactly like Victoria’s.. it just fits summer…
I went for this haircut to keep my nape cool..I hate sweaty hair on hot days…

I Love Kellie’s bob. She looks great, only certain people could pull that off. I personally wouldn’t be that one.

I think that this is a hot new look for summer but you just need the right stylist and the right personality to pull it off.I think it suits Rihanna 100%!!

i’ve got this haircut…the trick is to go to your regular hairdresser who is aware of what you like and they should be able to alter it to suit you..well thats what mine did anyway.

No way! It just looks plain silly to me. Kellie used to be really pretty, now she looks terrible with that cut. To me a bob is a short even cut all around. Not an angle cut.

ummm yeah… I did and I loved it. I want it back! its cute!

I can’t believe this is back. This was ugly when I had it in high school and it’s ugly now. But it goes well with the white wayfarer glasses everyone’s wearing that I wore back then too.

i wouldnt do bob. but i do love the bob on rihanna. kellie’s? um no.

ABC123 on

I would…actually I have (a few times). I don’t think I’ll do it this summer b/c a lot more people would be wearing it now. And it’s okay to be different sometimes AS LONG as it goes with your face AND it helps if your hairstylist knows what s/he’s doing.

Rihanna’s style looks nice on her. Kellie? Not so much…the style actually ages her. I mean the style is cute BUT it maker HER look much older than she is.

And Victoria Bechman’s fault? No, she was not the first with it. The 80’s era is more responsible for this than she is.

P.S. Technically, a “bob” is when your hair is cut short BUT the ends bend (curl or curve) towards your face (like the two pics illustrate). Some are even all around, some are asymmetrical, and some are shorter in the back and get longer towards your face.

happy on

I think i would if my hair were straight.
