January Jones has long been wearing her hair in various bob styles for years. At the January 2023 InStyle Awards, the actor wore soft, shoulder-length waves and seemed to be growing out her bangs. Notably, her hair color is a vibrant warm-toned blonde.Variety/Penske Media/Getty Images
For her birthday in — you guessed it — January, Jones celebrated with a fresh bob with bangs, complete with an icy platinum color. “Fresh hair for my ‘day’ of human birth,” she captioned an Instagram selfie, which shows the star with a straight-across, shoulder-grazing bob and blunt bangs that just barely cover her eyebrows.@januaryjones
Lizzo’s known for changing up her look but, up until recently, had been loving mermaid waves and other soft, romantic styles like braids and delicate updos.@lizzobeeating
Amid the short hair craze, Lizzo put her own spin on the trend with the short curly bob she debuted in January 2023. As many Instagram commenters alluded to, the blonde-highlighted style gives off “rich aunt vibes” in the best possible way.@lizzobeeating
In December 2022, Hadid dyed her typically dark hair to a warm shade of blonde and started 2023 by showing off the dramatic new shade in a series of Instagram posts. Dubbing the new hair color her “Aspen Bella” era, fans thought the look was here to stay.@bellahadid
Fans did a double take when Hadid debuted a Marilyn Monroe-inspired hairstyle in an Instagram video shared on January 17. While it’s presumably a wig for a modeling job, there’s no doubt that the star can pull the super-short look off.@bellahadid
Hailey Bieber is no stranger to the bob, but it’s been years since she went super short. The model went from sandy blonde to chocolate brown in 2022 and over the holiday season, paired her darker look with bright red lipstick.@haileybieber
Bieber kicked off 2023 with a transformation no one saw coming. In January, the star casually revealed a chin-length bob on TikTok, sending fans into a frenzy. She was also spotted out and about in New York City with the new, blunt chop.Gotham/GC Images/Getty Images
For the majority of 2022, Zendaya kept her hair long, experimenting with a trim here and there and even some honey-blonde highlights. At Paris Fashion Week in October 2022, the Euphoria star wore a sleek style with a dramatic side part.Dominique Charriau/WireImage/Getty Images
In the final days of 2022, Zendaya surprised fans by revealing her new bob haircut at an event at the Paramount Theater in Los Angeles. Her hair was cut just below the chin and swept to the side, giving the bob some extra texture and dimension.Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic/Getty Images
