Taylor Swift has spoken: the bob haircut is here to stay. The musician declared it as so on Oct. 11 at the premiere of her movie, “The Eras Tour Concert Film,” the motion picture version of her highly successful world tour. The event was attended by quite a few industry heavy-hitters (hello, Beyoncé), but all eyes were on Swift as she shined in a baby blue Oscar de la Renta gown and the trendiest hairstyle of the moment.
While it’s unclear if the pop star fully committed to the haircut or just went for a tucked variation of an A-line bob, fans have been in a frenzy nonetheless. Searches for Swift’s haircut dominated the internet overnight with many people wondering: did she cut her hair for real or is it just for show? Either way, it feels like Swift is trying to make a statement. Getting a dramatic haircut is one of the main ways people signify they’re entering a new era, be it after a breakup, starting a new job, or making a big more. And this is not just any haircut. Bobs are typically the style of choice for powerful women in TV and film, an archetype that the singer fits to the letter. Either way, now that Swift has officially provided her stamp of approval, it’s official: bobs simply are the moment.
This isn’t the first time that Swift’s hair changes have caused a stir. In fact, just a few weeks ago, fans were convinced that her bangs from 2014 were one of the clues to her vault song puzzle on her forthcoming “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” album.
Though she is one to typically stick to a signature look that works for her, Swift’s new style comes at a time when bobs are heavily trending – and that’s putting it lightly. Everyone from Lori Harvey to Hailey Bieber have been spotted in their own versions of the short hairstyle. This is a trend that is really versatile, so regardless of your hair type or texture, you can achieve the bob of your dreams. Swift still has quite a few shows left on her tour so it’s yet to be determined if she has another big hair moment up her sleeve. In the meantime, take a closer look at her bob haircut below.
