Just when you thought bob hairstyles couldn’t get anymore chic, enter the Bubble Bob. This bob gets its name from the adorable rounded shape where the ends of the hair turn in, giving it an almost airy feel. It’s flirty, full of movement and has been taking the celebrity It Girls by storm. After debuting on Zendaya at a Louis Vuitton show back in March, the bubble bob’s been popping up on Ciara, Lori Harvey, and Kerry Washington—just to name a few.

The popularity of the bubble bob lies in its ability to be flattering on any hair type, easy to style, and be extremely wearable. It’s more about the styling than the actual haircut. You can achieve this look easily with a large round brush and blow drier after the hair has been straightened. The outcome is full of volume and bounce. 

Feeling inspired? Here are our favorite bubble bob styles to take to your next hair appointment.
