As the days get longer, the leaves change back to vibrant green, and springtime officially approaches, you may find yourself longing for a major hair transformation. You wouldn't be alone, either, considering an impressive crop of celebrities have already ran to the salon for brand-new looks. Following in the footsteps of Lucy Hale, Emma Roberts, and Gabrielle Union, Kristen Bell's bob is yet another reason why you should cut your hair this season. The best part? Super-short hair is beyond easy to style, making getting ready in the morning an absolute breeze.
The actor took to Instagram on Sun. to reveal her most recent hair change. With help from celebrity stylist, Jenny Cho, Bell now sports a slightly angled, A-line bob that sits just below her chin. While her fresh cut comes with plenty of styling opportunity, the 38-year-old wore her platinum blonde hair sleek and straight, complete with a perfectly placed middle part and a touch of volume at her roots.
Bell has never been shy about sharing extremely honest bits and pieces of her busy life on social media. While a hectic schedule isn't a necessary prerequisite for a choppy bob, a shorter haircut looks polished and saves you some time in the morning (read: blow-drying and styling time is cut in half).
Although she experiments with different lengths, layers, and styles, Bell's blonde color remains a constant when it comes to her personal brand. If you're looking to make a change this spring but aren't quite ready to commit to the sometimes high-maintenance upkeep of the color process, Bell's bob may be the solution you've been searching for.
Keep it soft and simple by blowing it out and styling it stick straight, or add some playful volume in the form of loose waves, bouncy curls, or messy bends. Short hair is a great backdrop for trendy hair accessories, too. Pin your face-framing pieces with a bejeweled hair clip, place a padded headband at your crown, or pull your hair into a half-up style using a vintage-inspired scrunchie.
