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?

I absolutaly LOVE LOVE it!! Everything about it! I’m actually thinking about getting my hair cut that way.

I have to say…. Rihanna simply has the vibe and the right music to be bold and in the present. Kelly, well, I don’t listen to country so I don’t know who she is BUTTT I think she’s trying really hard. Sorry babe—. I actually thought the bob looked wonderful on Charlize Theron when she did Aeon Flux. Looked okay on Posh but a little too trendy. I have this hair cut and I do miss my long hair but I think if you’re pondering this style, you have to be peculiar. I don’t suggest doing it because someone else did it. I think it should go with your PERSONALITY and definitely your style. As a trend I think it makes a lot of girls look plain stupid. As an individual thing, it makes some wonderfully stylish people stand out. Just make sure it’s YOU!

Now, I’m definitely a long hair kind of girl, so these are not pics I’d be bringing into my stylist. BUT I really think Rihanna’s bob is really cute, and I’m sure that’s just a bad angle of Kellie, with the her hair behind her ear it’s just kind of hard to see what’s going on with it. It’s definitely a fun cut, and if my hair wasn’t such a security blanket, I might have been brave enough to give it a try!

LOVE IT ESPECIALLY RHIANNA’S MY HAIR USED TO BE VERY SIMILAR TO HER HAIR. IF I WASN’T TRYING TO GROW IT OUT I WOULD CUT IT JUST LIKE THAT!
