*This* Is Summer's Trendiest Haircut

Gone are the days of flowing mermaid-esque hair for summer. Instead, this season’s “it” haircut is chin length, super versatile and downright edgy. Enter: the modern bob. A-listers from Jourdan Dunn to Emilia Clarke have all chopped their locks up to new heights, and if you’re thinking of following suit, these seven celebrity hairstyles are all the inspo you need.

The name of the game: sleek, shiny and no-fuss. A deep side part is all it takes for a little extra oomph.

Jourdan proves that a bob looks just as chic textured and wavy as it does smooth. Stock up on wave spray and revel in the beauty of air-drying.

Another advocate for the deep side part. With one side tucked behind your ear, it suddenly feels completely different—and it’s the perfect way to show off statement earrings.

Even the queen of long, flowy tresses tested out the bob in its most classic style: center parted and glossy as all heck. Invest in a good flatiron to nail this look yourself.

Emilia Clarke

The Mother of Dragons traded in her signature waist-grazing locks for a chin-length crop and we can’t get enough. The flipped-over, combed-back side part makes it look even more sophisticated.

Proof that you can rock a bob with bangs (even if you’re not Anna Wintour). Lived-in waves make the naturally sophisticated haircut look decidedly laid-back.

See ya, long, loose locks. This bob is textured, it’s messy, and it’s proof that short hair is summer’s freshest new ’do.
