The Cutest Celebrity Bob Haircuts of 2022: See the Before and After Photos!

It was a new year, new ‘do for many stars! After 2022 got underway, a number of celebrities underwent major hair makeovers by getting a bob hairstyle for a brand-new look. The cut was easy to maintain, light and flirty, and could still be styled into a glam red carpet look. And for when stars were ready for a change, the bob was easy to grow out, as one didn’t have to deal with evening out messier layers that come with other shorter styles such as shag ‘dos.

Lea Michele was absolutely loving her bob hairstyle. The Glee alum was one of the first stars to jump on the 2022 bob bandwagon. In a January 4 Instagram photo, the mother of one, who shares son Ever Leo with husband Zandy Reich, showed how she was fresh from the salon after getting her long hair chopped off to just below her shoulders. Lea called herself “2022 ready” in the caption. Ever since, she flaunted her gorgeous style via Instagram photos from snowy ski getaways to running errands around New York City, looking so stunning!

Singer Kesha said goodbye to her long blonde locks by debuting a chopped, dark brown bob on January 28 via Instagram. “Haircut n nails n st,” the “Die Young” songstress captioned her stunning look as she went makeup free in the snapshot. The new cut and color showed off Kesha’s lovely green eyes and beautiful facial features.

She wasn’t the only one who kicked off January with the style. Former Bachelorette Katie Thurston showed off her sleek new bob after getting her chest-length brown hair cut to just above her shoulders in a January 26 Instagram photo. “While I loved having a natural long look, I knew I was ready for something new in 2022,” the reality star told her followers.

Kar-Jenner fans were on the lookout to see which of the sisters turned to a bob haircut first in 2022. Kourtney Kardashian was already there, as she got her shortest chop in many years when she debuted an above the chin bob in August 2021. “Kourtney always had [it in] the back of her mind [to] one day to cut her hair short,” her longtime stylist Peter Savic told People at the time, adding, “It’s a soft, simple and feminine haircut. I cut about eight to ten inches off.”
Kourt went even shorter in September 2022, getting her hair cut several inches above her shoulders. Three months prior, Kim Kardashian debuted a shoulder-length blonde bob in June, but it didn’t last long as she quickly got her long extensions put back in.
