With celebs like Kate Mara and Lily Collins chopping off their hair into messy pixie cuts left and right, it makes a girl with a blunt bob (aka the most popular haircut of early 2015) start to think that the only option to keep her locks feeling fresh this summer is to make a date with the scissors. But thanks to Dakota Johnson’s latest look, you might want to arm yourself with a curling iron instead.

'A Bigger Splash' Premiere - 72nd Venice Film Festival

Snapped on the red carpet of the Venice Film Festival, Johnson’s usual straight strands were twisted into tight, ’80s inspired curls. The starlet seems to be on a bit of a throwback kick recently considering she also rocked some super ’90s looking highlights just a few days earlier. Dakota’s twisted locks have proven once and for all, the bouncing bob is actually majorly versatile, and it might be the coolest we’ve seen an above-the-shoulder cut look in quite some time.


Johnson isn’t the only leading lady with a blunt bob to go curl crazy. Mindy Kaling recently gave her new short ‘do the special treatment at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic just a few weeks ago, while starlets like Emma Stone and Kerry Washington have been repping short + bouncy hair for years. Whether you’ve been stalking the style for some time now or are reading about it here first, the bouncy bob is having a moment, and it couldn’t be coming at a better time. Whether you’re getting dolled up for Father’s Day this weekend or still figuring out how to wear your hair for your friend’s wedding this summer, this is the style to try, all thanks to your new favorite girl gang.
