Do you prefer bobs with or without bangs? To help you decide, we've put Jessica Chastain's wavy lob and Rihanna's bob with bangs head to head.
Jessica Chastain's wavy bob
The hairstyle: With a deep side part and sculpted vintage waves, Jessica Chastain's shoulder-grazing wavy bob strikes the perfect balance between modern and retro.
The style: These vintage-inspired waves enhance the American actress' red hair with total elegance. Whoever says that mid-length hair is difficult to style clearly hasn't seen this look!
What the editor's say: We love how Jessica has made the look a little more casual, opting for waves that are more relaxed than the classic pin up version but more graphic than beach waves. The look is resolutely modern in spite of its association with Hollywood's Golden Age.
Rihanna's bob with bangs
The look: Short with bangs cut in, Rihanna's look is worlds apart from the bob hairstyle made popular during the Roaring Twenties, thanks to is wavy texture and feathery bangs.
The style: Natural and chic, the style boasts structured layers and piecey bangs to give Rihanna's look a modern but feminine edge.
What the editor's say: Over the years, Rihanna has reinvented her look hundreds of times and while her textured bob might not be the most daring she's tried, we've got a lot of love for this look! Flawless!
