The ‘cowgirl bob’ is the cooler, messier take on the French bob

The ‘cowgirl bob’ is the cooler, messier take on the French bob

Yeehaw summer loading…

If you’re torn between an edgy shag and a chic bob haircut, we have good news: the cowgirl bob just might be your match made in haircut heaven.

Unfamiliar with the cowgirl bob? Megan Fox, our patron saint of hair transformations, just debuted the chop. Created and styled by celebrity hairstylist Dimitris Giannetos, it’s a grown-up take on fall 2023’s viral cowgirl cut with a hint of soft femininity – à la the French bob.

The cowgirl bob is equal parts flattering and versatile. While the look is on-trend, it can also be customised so your cut doesn’t end up looking like a carbon copy of anyone else’s style (unless you want it to.)

Hairstylist Luke Hersheson coined the cowgirl cut — the cowgirl bob’s predecessor — last autumn, describing it as his most-requested new season look.

“The cowgirl cut is rough and ready — a little imperfect but beautiful, so that’s where the name came from,” he told GLAMOUR US, noting that while it may have had strong similarities to a shag or lob, it was a new take on both: “The cowgirl cut is a cross between both, but with curtain bangs.”

Now that summer is just around the corner, it’s no surprise that cowgirl cuts are evolving into cowgirl bobs, pulling inspiration from short, hot-weather-friendly styles we already know and love— especially since Megan Fox makes it look so good.

As for the haircut? “The cowgirl bob is a longer twist on the ‘French bob,’ with chic piece-y bangs and a blunt-full length,” says New York City hairstylist Dan Williams.

It certainly doesn’t hurt that country music and cowgirl-inspired aesthetics are having such a renaissance at the same time. “This will look so good when out riding horses getting a little wind-swept with the texture!” he adds.

“This bob is fabulous if you like a fuller, one-length, short bob with just a mild amount of texturising on the ends,” Dan continues, who also suggests cutting downward into the bangs “to add more of a wispy effect when styling.”

When creating your look, Dan recommends using a one-inch curling iron and “twisting the hair as the curl releases.” If that sounds too scary, we get it: Simply opt for a self-rotating curling wand, like the Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler.

When curling, just “make sure to leave the ends out to help emphasise texture and give that little kick on the ends,” Dan adds, reiterating the importance of prioritising your hair’s health at the same time.

“Always use a good heat protectant,” he says, pointing to Bumble and Bumble Heat-Shield Thermal Protection Hair Mist as the perfect product for the job.

“Finish off this style with a good texture spray, such as as the new Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Texture Spray Light.”

Et voilà: “This look is perfect for living your true cowgirl fantasy,” Dan concludes. We couldn’t agree more. Yeehaw!
