Emma Roberts’ Bob Is Our New Favorite Haircut

Hey, girl, HEY. While most stylists might advise you against a drastic ’do before a big event, Emma Roberts’ stunning asymmetrical bob pretty much stole the show—in the best way possible—at Elle’s Women in Television Celebration last night. It reminds me of the time my stylist/grandmother begged me not to shave off my bangs in the shower before the first day of sixth grade. I did it anyway, obviously, and it debuted to less than glowing reviews. Thankfully, Emma’s hair faired WAY better. In the words of Ron Burgundy, “I mean, that thing’s good. I wanna be friends with it.”

Chic from every angle.

The last time the American Horror Story star made a public appearance (which was nearly two weeks ago at the Golden Globes), her hair was a LOT longer. We’re guessing she cut off at LEAST a foot, if not 18 inches. Emma’s had her hair short before, but never so sleek and never so perfectly dirty blond. Those piece-y low-lights are impeccable.

From the side, we get to see how seamlessly her stylist was able to blend her bangs into the angled bob. Instead of adding weight to her hair, now they delicately frame her face. Roberts paired her new ’do with bright, minimal makeup, diamond studs, a cutout black top and white flared mini-skirt, both from Cushnie Et Ochs. You know what else this bob looks great with? That sparkly new engagement ring from her American Horror Story co-star, Evan Peters. (Although, to be fair, that would look great with anything.) So get your sheers ready, stylists: We have a feeling this is one cut that will be daringly duplicated indefinitely.
