The choppy bob is just as its name suggest, a bob with choppy or 'messy' layering. The look is a bit disheveled but in a tousled just got of bed sort of way making it more sexy then messy. Celebs who have popularized the look include Cameron Diaz and Alexa Chung.

The look was a common denominator for Spring 2014 fashion ads as seen on Bluemarine, Sonia Rykiel, Carven, and Ralph Rucci. It was also a favorite on the runways. Models at the Marc Jacobs, Fendi and Chanel shows all sported the look.
