Say goodbye to long bobs, affectionately dubbed the lob, and say hello to your favorite new hairstyle of 2015: “The Swag.” This hairstyle pays tribute to looks from rock stars of the ‘80s, but also adds a pinch of sophistication with long layers and peek-a-boo bangs. To achieve this hot new look, ask your stylist for curtain bangs around your face and razor-cut layers on the remainder of your hair. If you are dying to see how this swag hairstyle has been worn by your favorite celebs, check out these 10 ladies who rocked the look with ease.
