It’s been a bit of a slow month in lob land. Sure, Katie Holmes debuted an ultra-choppy, chin-length bob at the Met Gala (is it a wig or NOT, Katie?!) and Zooey Deschanel ditched her trademark bangs (well, kinda) for the cover of Cosmo but it’s been a minute since we’ve spotted that blunt, shoulder-length cut we’ve come to know and love. Thankfully the medium haircut drought has come to an end on this fine Friday afternoon all thanks to Kate Hudson.
The blonde bombshell took to Instagram today to share a snap of her in the midst of getting her locks chopped off for a new movie role. She captioned the photo, “First day on set of new film and they’re going to town on my hair! ✂️✂️ Ah!!!!!” The cut is a pretty dramatic change for the celeb, who was previously rocking a long, layered style.
Kate’s photo shows off her freshly chopped hair while it’s still wet, so as of now we’re unsure exactly what the cut will look like when it’s dry and styled. But considering what we know about Kate’s no fuss style, we’re guessing she probably went for the classic, one-length lob. Welcome to the club, Ms. Hudson. We think you’ll lob it here.
