It’s hard to keep up with hair trends these days – especially when they make the rounds on TikTok. But one particular style we can get behind is the baroque bob, which just happens to be Zendaya’s signature look.

What Is A Baroque Bob?

The baroque bob is a short, sleek cut – around collarbone length – and what sets it apart is the addition of elaborate curls, giving a definitive sense of Old Hollywood glamour. 

Taking inspiration from the opulent art and flamboyant styles of the Baroque era, the bob is a more dramatic, voluminous take on the long bob (also known as the ‘mom haircut’) or the layered kitty cut. Plus, in true Baroque style, the hairstyle is perfectly complemented by all the accessories that are currently on trend – think ribbons, bows and jewels. 

Who Suits This Style?

With a focus on bouncy curls and longer layers, the baroque bob is a particularly good match for anyone with thicker, curlier hair. However, it’s generally the perfect style to try if you’re looking to get the chop but you’re not quite ready for a more traditional bob with lots of short layers.
