Continuing with the trend of classic hairstyle revivals for summer 2012, it is no surprise that a wide variety of bobs has burst back on the fashion scene. The “Retro faux bob” and “Mod bob” of the 50’s and 60’s bring to mind the pristine class of Betty Draper or the sex appeal of Brigitte Bardot. The iconic, and sometimes conservative, beauty of the bob has become a must-have look for 2012.
