Remember the lob haircut? That’s what the Institute For Creating Unnecessary Hybrid Words* decided to call a bob haircut that’s on the longer side, i.e. just past the shoulders. Gwyneth Paltrow got lobbed, Jessica Alba got lobbed, I got lobbed. But, guys, the lob is SO 2013. This year is all about the SHOB, a term I am happy to give to the Institute for a modest sum, that refers to bob haircuts that are on the shorter side. (You might be wondering what the hell a regular old bob looks like and I would tell you IT DOESN’T MATTER, this season is all about the SHOB, get on trend, dammit!) Anne Hathaway debuted hers on the red carpet last night and I love it. The shob is a totally versatile style for all hair types and face shapes, can be cut blunt or with layers, and looks rad both flat-ironed, air-dried or curly.

So, what do we think of Beyonce’s new hair. besides the fact that it’s obviously a wig and no doubt will be gone tomorrow? I am digging the ’50s style of the baby bangs, but I’m distracted by how it looks like her hair is hovering around her head rather than coming out of it. See what I mean? Anyway, speaking of baby bangs, baby Blue Ivy was photographed clutching the gold version of my exact same Eiffel Tower keychain (mine is silver-colored, Blue’s is probably solid gold). Blue Ivy and I (and every other tourist in Paris) have so much in common, aren’t you jealous? [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
There were a lot of major fashion moments on last night’s Emmy Awards red carpet — so many ladies in red, Lizzy Caplan’s leading lady glamour, Lena Dunahm’s whole situation – but I think the beauty and hair stole the show.

I don’t know whose hair is fiercer: Steven Tyler or Bruce Jenner. It really is a tossup. [Photos: AKM-GSI]
I remember when “True Blood” first debuted and we got our first glimpse of New Zealander Anna Paquin (then still best known for her Oscar-winning role in “The Piano” years before) as blonde waitress Sookie Stackhouse. Paquin looked so different and not like herself as a blonde, but thanks to her complete embodiment of the role, it didn’t take long before it became hard to imagine her as anything but a towhead. Well, Anna’s apparently been itching for a change, so when “True Blood” finished filming its final season this week, the actress went straight for the bottle. The dye bottle. Paquin posted these photos to social media yesterday, showing off her new purple and blue hair, and I think it looks amazing. Hmm, maybe it’s time I did a little experimenting… [E! Online]
Anna’s new look is daring, sure, but it’s also surprisingly “on trend,” as the lady mags say. Many fashionable celebs have dyed their hair some shade of purple, lilac, lavender or eggplant in the last few years. Maybe purple is the new ombre? Click through for more…
Oooh, I’m totally swooning over the hairstyle Diane Kruger wore to the premiere of her show “The Bridge” late last week. It looks complicated but I think it’s actually quite easy. It looks to be that Diane — or her hairstylist, let’s be real — sectioned the hair into two at the top of the head and did a Dutch braid (an inverted French braid) on the back section, then braided the front half of hair back and around/on top of it, so that the Dutch braid peeked through. The result is very Grace Kelly in front, Daenerys Targaryen in back. So unexpected! [Photos: Getty Images]
