Lucy Liu Ditches Her Signature Long Hair For a Sleek Bob
Lucy Liu is the latest to jump on the short-hair bandwagon. On May 23, the 54-year-old actor and director debuted a chin-length bob haircut at a film screening for “Unzipped: An Autopsy of American Inequality” in New York City. Parted to the side with sleek styling, the fresh chop is a departure from her usual chest-length hair.
The mom of one had a similar, chin-grazing haircut back in 2020, before switching back to long hair since. While it’s unclear exactly when she opted for the cut, she appears to have recently hit the salon, as she was last seen with the signature length at the end of March. She frequently wore her hair straightened and with a deep side part, though she’s experimented with fun ponytails and updos for red carpets.
Bob haircuts continue to reign as one of the year’s biggest hair trends, favored for its effortless vibe. Hailey Bieber seemingly gave the movement new life earlier this year, when she debuted a drastic short haircut. Variations like “box,” blunt, and sliced bobs have entered the scene as well, offering more options for anyone considering the popular hairstyle.
Liu joins many stars who’ve undergone hair transformations lately, including Reese Witherspoon reviving her famous blunt bangs, Lupita Nyong’o shaving her head completely, and Ariana Grande bringing back her micro fringe.
