With dad jeans and sneakers being all the rage for quite some time now, we’re surprised we didn’t see this “trend” sooner. This season as the Dad Bob takes shape, we’re curious — will the Eclectic Grandpa Bob be next? Whether you’re growing out your bob or are searching for a new term to describe what you’re looking for — the Dad Bob might be it. Let’s learn what this means.

What Is The Dad Bob?

The Dad Bob —- not to be confused with “Dad Bod” is a bob length that’s casual and slightly longer than the typical cut. It gives you a bit of a worn in look that doesn’t require a big change or a great deal of upkeep.

As a bob trend — it has a silhouette that mimics a 90s Bob or a The Italian Bob but with a slightly less formal feel. It can vary in exact length, falling between the jaw and collarbone to create a “short” feel without actually being too short. It is a big change from the micro or Le Petit Bob we saw last season — and with that change (read: length) it also welcomes in the ability to be styled with nearly any texture.

At the end of the day, the “Dad Bob” is a blunt bob with a bit of length to it that is tailored to your face shape and hair type.
