Inspired by the Boys band haircut of the 90s, this very short bob is more trendy than ever. The slightly androgynous style was adopted by Kaia Gerber before its time.
In the 90s, the boy bands are at the top. The youth idols of the time were the showcases of certain fashions, like Nick Carter, a member of the group Backstreet Boys. At this time, the singer distinguished himself with a singular mushroom cut. The hair is slicked back into a shortcut separated by a parting in the middle. Inseparable from this decade, the style spread. It is adopted by other celebrities as well as it is displayed in playgrounds. In 2021, this hairstyle is back in force and is very popular with fairer sex. They don't hesitate to ask their hairdresser for this boyish haircut. Shorter than a classic bob, the hairstyle frees the nape of the neck while long locks in the front lash the cheekbones. Borders are blurred, glamor and androgyne are in the spotlight. Worn simple or accented with accessories, this short bob is the quintessential nostalgic cut. Enough to revive a whole part of the 90s.
Kaia Gerber sported the boy band bob before everyone else. You have to go back to 2019 to observe its metamorphosis. That year, the top model swapped her cascading hair for a very short bob cut, which has never let go. And if this style sounds familiar, it's because Kaia Gerber took inspiration from Kurt Cobain's signature allure.
In an interview with Vogue Australia, she confided: "For a very long time I felt pressure in front of my long hair. To have beautiful hair is what everyone expected of me. Then I wondered for Who did I wear this long hair? - I realized that I could cut my hair if I wanted to cut it. And I did. And to clarify about this makeover: "It was like a weight on my shoulders. I definitely feel like myself now."
