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 seven mom bobs are the epitome of cool.
