Hair trends are constantly changing and evolving. Long hair may have been the must-have in the past, but short hair is officially taking over as the length to wear. Say hello to the easy, breezy bob! For months we’ve been noticing Hollywood’s most popular girls and the runway’s most sought-after models chopping off their locks and rocking cropped cuts. The influx of bobs coming onto the scene has us thinking there’s no time like the present, and perhaps we should embrace the big chop, too.

If you’re still on the fence about the bob haircut, perhaps clicking through the slideshow above will have you convinced that hair just past the chin is very, very in.

A deep, dark, side-parted bob on DJ Leigh Lezark has become her signature look. We're definitely going to be stealing style for a while. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery after all, right?

We can't get over Emma Roberts' bouncy blonde bob. Of course she was stunning before, but now that we've seen her new shorter style, we don't think her look can get any chicer.

Zosia Mamet's edgy and textured bob is a big departure from the long, flowing tresses we're used to seeing her with. The blunt cut has us dreaming of another time when bobs ruled the world. Ah, the '90s.

The long blonde locks that shot Mandy Moore to stardom were cute (cue "Candy"), but this asymmetrical long bob she has been rocking is much cooler.
