The New Bob

 The New Bob

It’s non-stop A-list glamour on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival and at MLD we’re loving that the classic bob has stepped into the spotlight thanks to model of the moment Bella Hadid’s new look. Also showcasing a chic chin-length crop is felllow supermodel Hailey Baldwin and beautiful French actress Marion Cotillard. The best bit about today’s bob is you can wear it super sleek (hello flat iron), sexy and textured (just add serum) or show off vintage style curls or waves.  “The bob never goes out of style because it looks great on women of all ages, hair colors and textures.  Right now you can give it a modern update with different styling techniques including messy up-do’s,” says Marie-Lou & D Creative Director Leon Gorman.
