Breaking: Willow Smith now has a bowl cut. And despite it looking kind of dorky … it’s kind of dorky in an awesome way. We swear: Willow’s at a point where anything this girl touches turns to gold. (Or at least, A+ hairstyles.) One question. How’s she gonna whip her hair now? Maybe this just goes to show that you don’t need to be a long-haired lady to embrace the hair-whipping mentality.

Selma Blair was spotted at The Gap yesterday with a brand-new haircut. Look quickly and it appears to be a very Anna Wintour-esque bob. But if you look a bit closer, her hair is reminiscent of Agyness Deyn‘s bowl cut, too.

It seemingly knows no gender bounds, and it’s personal to those of us who suffered this traumatizing fate back in the day: Once upon a time, your mom got sick of chasing you around to detangle your scraggly hair so, exasperated, she plopped a cereal bowl on your head, trimmed your glorious locks around the edges, and, yes, you still had to go to school the next day. (Shudder.) Of course, the look is far more chic if you meant for it to look that way. But we have to wonder if only models, rock stars (Karen O. always manages to make it work) and the most stylish of the fashionable set among us can pull it off? Are you feeling it, or does it just remind you of rather unpleasant childhood memories? Keep reading »
The line between a bob and a bowl cut is a fine one, determined by just a few snips of a hairdresser’s scissors. Do the bangs blend right into the rest of the hair? Are the edges rounded? If so, you’ve got a bowl cut, the style you might have had back when your mom was still deciding how you wore your hair. Keep reading »
