The Bob: A Cult Classic

Anna Wintour has quite possibly the most infamous version of this cut (although she doesn’t make this particular list). The Bob, a classic hairstyle. One of the few hairstyles that can carry a women from adolescence well through adulthood. But not just any kind of woman if you ask us. The next time you decide to opt-out of a night of fun and frivolity on the town, why not stay in, “movie nights” are always fun! Head to your local movie rental store (better known as Nexflix) and find (click-on) the “Cult Classic” section. In doing so we’re sure you will come to the same unexpected realization as we have. That being that the best-of-the-best of cult classic movies are riddled with a bunch of badass ladies with bobs. Random right, not something you ever would have noticed?! Well, we did (hair is sort of our thing as you know) and thus we have compiled for you our list of the baddest bobbed ladies to ever grace the silver screen! In no particular order, here we go:

Mathilda Lando (Natalie Portman) in “Leon: The Professional” – Like every young girl she loves to bob around carelessly playing dress-up… when she’s not busy learning how to become a hitman.

Leeloo (Mila Jovovich) in “The Fifth Element” - It’s got to be hard to steal the spotlight when acting alongside Bruce Willis in any action flick. But then again when you’re rocking a bright-orange bob, you kind of ARE the spotlight!

Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) in “Silence of the Lambs” – Notice how despite all the cringe worthy scenes in this classic horror film, agent Starling never falters and her hair never falls flats.

Elvira Hancock (Michelle Pfeiffer) in “Scarface” - Meet Tony Montana’s better-half. Don’t be fooled though, shes’s nobody’s “Babe,” she’s a brash blonde with a bob.

Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) in “Pulp Fiction” – This lady is “one cool cat.” She can dance, crack a joke (albeit not a great one), and rock the perfect black bob/red lip combo. If you’re not hip to her style yet, you really need to “ketchup.”

Enid (Thora Birch) in “Ghost World”- The physiological embodiment of teenage-angst.  This O.G.-hipster wears her bob with cute but seemingly sarcastic hair accessories and signature thick black rims.

Hmmm, now who did we miss??
