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?

Honestly, I love the look!!! Layers are not just for long hair, please, and it is still a bob!!! Know what your talking about before you speak. And I dont think all credit goes to Victoria, this has been around a long time, and it has been taught in Cosmetology school for years!!!

I cut my hair in a bob for locks of love. It is all one length with side-swept bangs. I love how it looks on me, but i would never do anything with all the angles.
Let’s just say the hairstyle is cute and all, but not for me.

I personaly love it! I think that it all depends on your face shape. If it goes with your style you can rock it just fine. But it is for more of a trendy person. I have that cut and I always get compliments, like I said if your confident in it you will be just fine.

I absolutely LOVE asymmetrical bobs! I cut my hair off for Locks of Love 5 years ago and have been an asymmetrical bob girl ever since. I had an awesome one last year and could never get my stylist to recreate it…even still the bobs I had before and after were awesome too. I’m trying to grow my hair out now and every time I see a picture of Rihanna I want to cut the hair all off again! I love the severe angles and its a great way to show off the collarbone and the neck ;)

Yes! I like this hair style because its original and is bringing a spice back in hair do. The fact that this hair style was famous in the eightys with its asymmetrical bob, makes it original. Just rock it with the right earings, and you’ve got youself a look that is undeniably unique.
