Would You Try an Asymmetrical Bob Like Rihanna and Kellie?

05/23/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

Blame it on Victoria Beckham — every since she razored off her hair, we’ve been seeing more and more stars crop their locks in asymmetrical bobs like hers (even husband David!). And they’re proving that you don’t need Posh’s bone structure to pull it off. Rihanna and Kellie Pickler gave major jolts to their overall looks with their sleek styles. L.A. based celeb stylist Umberto Savone tells PEOPLE that “more and more women are coming in looking for it. The asymmetrical bob is a very good summer look if it’s cut right.” But a word to the wise — show your stylist some photos to make sure you’re getting the look you want, and not a Flock of Seagulls redux. Tell us: Is this a look you would try? Would you wear an asymmetrical bob?

No I wont wear that……… BUT it looks good on Rihanna

There was just a blog on Kelli’s hair on whether it should be long or the asymmetrical bob, and I personally liked her hair as the bob. The bob does look nice on her, I think she shouldn’t have pushed the hair behind her ears, also maybe do something with the color, I like the blonde, but for some reason it needs more. It looks okay with Kelli’s shape of face, but it really makes her look older for some reason, whereas on Rihanna, the shape of her face and the cut still makes her look young. Kelli seems to have an inbetween shape of face – between long and round – where the cut looks cute on her, but then it doesn’t. Rihanna looks great with this cut, but however I don’t like it on her, I prefer her hair when she first came onto the music scene. I think Jenny McCarthy pulls the bob off nicely, she’s got the right shape of face. Also, someone said something about Charlize Theron with the bob in “Aeon Flux” and I agree, I loved her dark asymmetrical bob. Victoria Beckham looks nice with the bob, but I liked her hair the way it was before the cut.

No, I wouldn’t do this look. I’ve experimented with short hair, but I’ve never done anything as drastic as the asymmetrical bob, I wouldn’t neither. I don’t think I would look good with the look, but hey, if you can pull the look off, go for it.

I really like these bobs. They frame their faces really well. I have always wanted to cut my hair to a bob like this but I don’t know if it would look good with my face shape. Maybe I will consider it again. I ike rihanna’s bob the best. It’s my favorite.

I would not try this haistyle but I do love this hairstyle on Rihanna. This is the best I have ever seen her look. The color compliments her face.

Hey. These girls look great. Don’t be jealous because you might not be able to pull this look off. I guess some of you have to be more conservative to make up for being plain>

As a hair stylist this is one of the most asked for hair cuts out there!! Maybe not SO thin on the ends but its the new updated bob thats forsure. I love doing this cut and I can see how some people wouldnt like wearing it. Its not for everybody you do have to have the right facial features and personality to go with it. Very cute if you get the right stylist to cut it!!

Mona on

I think its really cute…especially with Rihana. I think that its a fun and risky haircut but I could try it…
