Taylor Swift has one of the best celebrity bob hairstyles on the planet and, alongside her BFF Karlie Kloss, she's a great ambassador for the shoulder-skimming haircut. Even though she's won armfuls of Grammys, CMAs, AMAs and the like, we can't help but think that the pop superstar deserves some extra recognition for her lovely locks!

And hey, if you've been thinking about getting a bob of your own, you could certainly do worse than look to this lady for inspiration.

Why try Taylor Swift's hairstyle?

Medium-length hair combined with a few subtle layers and sideswept bangs give Taylor's bob a full-bodied finish and a smooth shape that frames her features, particularly her eyes, just right. So, if you're looking for an excuse to wear more eyeliner, this hairstyle is it!

The other great thing about this style is that it's long enough to offer plenty of different styling options, but that versatility doesn't come at the same price as longer hair, which takes considerably more time to care for and style.

Styling tips

To recreate a similarly sleek finish on your own hair, apply a straightening cream and blow-dry your hair with a paddle brush. Once dried, use a flat iron for any further straightening, then complete the look with a glossy finishing spray.

For those of you who aren't so keen on a perfectly smooth finish and would prefer something more textured, scrunch plenty of salt spray in to create a natural, wavy look instead.

What do you think? Would you try a bob à la Taylor Swift?
