Some type of haircut or style has to be a pretty big trend for it to break through the red carpet noise and emerge as an awards show beauty moment. These premium quality red carpets require weeks, if not months, of preparation and planning. This means that the madness they come up with is reliably exciting and fresh.
At the 81st Golden Globe Awards, the bob haircut seemed to dominate the beauty moments. This is not unusual; After all, cuts that highlight the shoulders are considered timeless. But there’s something a little different in sight this year. Short bobs, also known as micro bob or nano bob, attract attention. This haircut is defined by the ends of the hair being scaled upwards to the chin rather than resting on or near the shoulders.
On this big night, Ayo Edebiri chose to go to crazy extremes with her micro bob. Stars like the always elegant Greta Lee and Naomi Watts took a more vintage approach.
Meet the best micro bob looks from Golden Globes night.
The thick side of the deep parting on Watts’ golden blonde bob offers a few Old Hollywood twists; the rest billows gently, hiding behind her jewel-adorned ear.
Twisted ends are almost like an it-girl prerequisite, and of course Edebiri is pioneering this trend. She looks like a star of the 90s, with the volume framing her face created by famous hairdresser Miles Jeffries.
While Edebiri’s appearance makes you feel the magic of the 90s; Ferrera’s take on the bob is a 2000s screen queen moment.
Mulligan has always been the muse of the short haircut. But her classic, curled-in micro-bob may be her ultimate form. The separation in the middle gives it a fresh and modern atmosphere, and it can be said that this is thanks to its strategic shaping.

In Ralph’s look that proves the permanence of a classic bob; An impressive height has been gained on the forehead with the deep fold that falls warmly.
That’s what’s called a power bob. Waddingham’s chin-length icy platinum hair shines like a star on its own.
Lee’s Golden Globes look is definitely on thousands of wedding mood boards right now. Celebrity hairstylist Jenny Cho carefully curled Lee’s shoulder-length hair, giving it extra volume and shape.
Like a modern Grace Kelly with her short tucked-in micro-bob, Spaeny’s elegant look was styled by Kiley Fitzgerald.
