It may be a bob, but don’t expect to see Nicole Richie‘s new ‘do behind the wheel of a minivan anytime soon.

Richie took to Instagram to document her latest hair look — a just-above-the-shoulders crop — Tuesday afternoon, sharing a photo of herself mid-cut with the caption hinting at what the final result would be: “B.O.B.”

It appears that the star took off a few inches in addition to adding some cool, piecey layers. Now excuse us while we call our stylist to book a haircut.

Tell us: Do you prefer Richie with short or long hair?

Looks like when her haircut is finished, it will be healthy and fresh looking. There’s nothing worse than to see stars, or anyone for that matter, wear stringy,long fried and unhealthy hair. Sometimes shorter is better

She is probably glad to have all those extensions and weaves removed!

I wouldn’t call it “short” but I would call this article DUMB.

Deb on

When she was a little girl, her hair was naturally long. I don’t focus on the hair as much as Nicole the total person. I am so proud of the way in which she appears to have turned her life around and wish her nothing but the absolute best!



Life goes on on

After its done maybe.

Did she chop off her hair or take out her extensions? Puh lease!
