After 110 years, the bob remains the the most common and iconic haircut in the history. We called it in so many ways: bob, long bob, lob, carré, pob or à la garçonne, but its shape is more or less always the same.
This hairstyle is glamorous and super-feminine: everyone of us, at least once in our life, whether we were just girls or adults, chose this haircut. It is the most famous haircut in the world, which has very ancient origins. Let’s find out together some facts!
In 2019, the bob haircut turns 110!
This hairstyle was invented in 1909 by Antoine, a Polish hairdresser who had opened a salon in Paris. This haircut has changed the concept of femininity, which until that time was associated with long hair. In that period, it has also become the symbol of women emancipation. It was inspired by Joan of Arc.
This hairstyle has marked the history of elegance, so much that it has appeared in many movies. Moroever, the most famous actresses and stars of the show business started to wear it. It occasionally returns back in fashion with different variants thanks to the most followed social media influencers.
