2023 has been the indisputable year of the bob. But just when you thought the trend had run out of steam, along comes a more voluminous take. The ‘mushroom bob’ is already igniting the desire to get a jaw-skimming crop in the New Year… it’s the type of bob that tumbles nonchalantly around your face and contours your cheekbones, while also bouncing perkily beneath the ears.
Put simply, the mushroom bob should look polished and full – but simultaneously have a tousled quality. Mood boards for the look include Drew Barrymore in the early ’00s and Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction, with a side helping of the XXL supermodel blow-dry.
Over the past 12 months, every conceivable bob iteration – from layered bobs to the butterfly bob and the maxi bob – has livened up our social media feeds, each with a unique spin on the trend. The mushroom bob is no different and is characterised by its distinct mushroom cap shape, with curved lines and ends that tuck neatly under to create a dome-like effect (think the reverse of the flip bob).
