Want to take your hair shorter, but not as far as a full-on pixie cut? Steal Carey Mulligan’s look. Her half-bob is short at the back (around 2cm) and longer at the front (10 to 11cm).

This is such a versatile hairdo – it can be worn tucked behind your ears for a cropped look or loose around the face
It works for both wavy and straight hair, and either a fine or medium texture.
The finer your hair – the shorter your bob should be.
