Kerry Washington has a new bob that’s straight as a razor and sharper than one, too

Kerry Washington is in her bob era.

The actor debuted a razor-sharp, chin-length bob at the Elle Women in Hollywood event in Los Angeles on December 5. Her hair was parted in the centre and styled straight, hitting right between her chin and collarbone and framing her face perfectly. The ends of the cut were a true masterpiece, with a mathematical precision that could cut you if you’re not careful! It’s the definition of a classic, chic bob – impactful in its very simplicity, and its total perfection on Washington. But then again, she looks great in pretty much every single hairstyle she tries, and this straight and sharp bob is yet another winning addition to the Kerry Washington Hall of Fame.

Washington paired her bob with smouldering smokey eyes accented with a deep plum shadow and lots of black liner in her waterlines, as well as under her lash-line. Rosy blush and a matching lip provided the perfect finishing touch and mimicked the warm pinky-plum tone on her lids to create a monochromatic effect. The bob also provided the perfect canvas for Washington’s red carpet outfit, a black spaghetti strap jumpsuit worn with a crocheted capelet.

Bobs are a mainstay for the star, who frequently changes it up from long braids and curls and short, sleek styles. At the 2020 Emmys, she rocked a super short blunt bob with salmon lipstick and lots of black liner. In 2022, she wore a similar style but this time with straight-across baby bangs, then showed off a soft wavy lob style in early 2023. Kerry Washington’s love of bobs goes way back to her pre-fame days, too. In high school, she even tried her hand (or is it her hair?) at the infamous “The Rachel” haircut, which she shared in an adorable throwback from her teenage years. That exact ’90s bob may not be due for a comeback, but the rest of Washington’s bob oeuvre is truly classic.
