Bob: The most popular hairstyle from is back - and we're showing you the most beautiful variations from famous films
If you've been patiently waiting for the Roaring Twenties to be back in style, the fact that the bob is back in trend is a good sign. Polish hairdresser Antoni Cierplikowski - who worked with Coco Chanel, Josephine Baker, and Edith Piaf - first developed the style in 1909 in his Parisian salon Antoine de Paris and was supposedly inspired by portraits of Joan of Arc. (According to legend and a whole series of 15th-century case files, the French heroine wore her hair cut short - both for convenience and to avoid being spotted.)
Paris society quickly adopted the helmet-like cut, as did the Bloomsbury set. It was Hollywood, however, that made the bob a permanent symbol of the jazz age - especially actress Louise Brooks, whose dark, the shiny head has since influenced screen heroines from Liza Minnelli to Uma Thurman.
Dorothy Dandridge is irresistible to the music of Georges Bizet's opera "Carmen" from the 19th century in Otto Preminger's adaptation of Hammerstein's Broadway musical of the same name.
It is a testament to Uma Thurman's coolness in Pulp Fiction that her bob still looks fresh (and deeply desirable) despite being pinned to a million Pinterest boards.

Merle Oberon exchanges witty taunts and lingering glances with Rex Harrison in this British film from the 1930s, showing perfect waves in between.
Jane Henderson's style may get all the attention, but Nastassja Kinski's tousled center-parted bob deserves just as much praise.
Fred Astaire, a former star of Russian ballet, once described Cyd Charisse as beautiful dynamite, and it's easy to see why during the ballet sequence in "You Shall Be My Lucky Star" with Gene Kelly.
There are a million reasons to watch It Happened in One Night, but Claudette Colbert's Bob is high on the list, next to Clarke Gable's attempt to hitchhike.
Hollywood star Nancy Kwan's bob cut by Vidal Sassoon in 1963 and featured in "The Wild Affair" sparked a major bob revival in London in the Swinging Sixties, and the British dedicated an editorial to her look.
Say what you want about tired of Wes Anderson aesthetics - Margot Tenenbaum will never go out of style.
It seems like Grace Kelly has never had a single bad hair day in her entire life. In all fairness, most of her films could be on this list, but "High Society Opposites Attract" is simply the best thing about her bob.
Faye Dunaway's side-swept, curly bob is made even more memorable with the accompanying dark eyeliner and nude-colored lips - the ultimate '60s look.
