7 Mom Bobs That Are Anything But Basic

Mom bobs lowkey get a bad rap.

But in reality, there’s nothing frumpy about this classic cut. This shoulder-skimming lob is a true style staple. Trust us, the mom bob is kind of always in. Whether you go for something banged, blunt, textured, or tousled, this time honored trim can work on just about anyone. From our actual moms to our favorite celebrities.

Just ask anyone: these 7 mom bobs are the epitome of cool.

1. Ultra-Blunt Ends
