The long bob, or “lob,” is a celebrity hairstyle favorite, and for good reason—it’s versatile, easy to style, and super-chic, whether it’s worn straight, in curls, or in loose, beachy waves. It’s also the perfect length, giving you plenty of length to style, while also sparing you from the dreaded sweaty neck and back that plagues those with Rapunzel-length locks.

If you’re looking for a good reason to make the cut, check out these 15 celebrity long bobs we love. They’re chic and impossibly stylish, while also being totally practical. What’s not to love about that?

The 15 best celebrity long bob haircuts | @stylecaster

Long bobs are chic and impossibly stylish, while also being totally practical. What's not to love about that?

Taylor Swift
We never thought T. Swift would part with her signature mermaid waves, but after several years in the spotlight, she finally went for the chop in a big way. Taylor's versatile cut is sophisticated and versatile, and it lends itself particularly well to this type of classic styling.

Emma Roberts
We have serious bob envy in the case of Emma's sleek, shiny cut. Long layers and face-framing curls are flattering and unexpected on this abbreviated length.

Emma Watson
Emma has succeeded in growing out her gamine post-"Potter" pixie in style. A smooth center part, large barrel waves, and a touch of height at the crown alludes to slightly retro glamour that still seems contemporary.

Katy Perry
Katy's blunt bob, complete with eyebrow-grazing bangs, is as classic as they come.

Kristen Wiig
Kristen shocked fans when she lopped off her long locks in favor of a sleek to-the-chin bob earlier this year.

Alexa Chung
Alexa Chung has truly perfected the long bob. With ombre highlights and a length that goes just beyond her shoulders, this style will look good on anyone—even as it grows out.

January Jones
The Mad Men actress never wears her long bob the same way twice. To get these waves, use a curling iron to curl hair away from the face.

Kate Mara
Kate's long bob looks great pin-straight because it's all one length.

Katharine McPhee
Dress up your lob like Katharine's with thick, loose waves and a deep side part.

Kerry Washington
Kerry wears her lob straight and curly, but we especially love the messy texture on this shoulder-skimming look. To replicate the style, curl pieces of hair at random with a curling iron, and then use a flat iron to go over the ends.

Lily Collins
Lily has similar texture to Kerry's style, but without the bangs. For a boost in volume, copy her deep side part.

Marion Cotillard
Marion Cotillard wore a more angular lob to the Golden Globes awards earlier this year, pairing the look with side-swept bangs. To keep hair smooth all night, try rubbing a dime-size amount of John Frieda Frizz-Ease Sheer Solution ($9.99, drugstore.com) into hands and then distributing through hair, starting at the ends.

Nicole Kidman
Nicole Kidman looks seriously elegant in this classic haircut, that extends just past her shoulders. We hope this means she's said goodbye to long extensions for good!

Nicole Richie
Nicole recently went back to a lob and blunt bangs, which accentuate her eyes. We love this length, which hovers just above her shoulders.

Rose Byrne
Rose caught a lot of attention after cutting a short bob and blunt bangs, and her hair keeps getting better as she grows it out.
