If you’re looking for a sign to commit to a chop, now is the best time to do so. It seems like celebrities left and right these days are all opting for shorter hair styles, Florence Pugh just debuted her edgy blonde cut on Instagram, and now Dua Lipa has taken inches off, sporting a chic bob just in time for the holidays.

Lipa posted a series of photos debuting the new bob while shooting the Libre fragrance campaign with YSL Beauty, which features plenty of beach scenes and magical sunsets.


This is a departure for Lipa, who usually wears her hair long, but it remains archetypal of her to keep her hair dark, as seen paired with her custom Maximillian gown at the Fashion Awards, styled by her hair partner-in-crime Luke Hersheson.

There’s part of us that questions whether or not this new hairstyle is due in part to a #breakover type situation relating to the alleged report that Lipa and longtime boyfriend, Anwar Hadid, have split after dating since 2019.

Bobs remain popular, especially throughout 2021, for their easy upkeep and casual styling options, while remaining chic and full of statement. Other celebrities who have followed this trend include Bella Hadid, Billie Eilish, Kaia Gerber, Irina Shayk, Florence Pugh and Selena Gomez, among many, many others.

So, if you’re looking for hair inspiration, keep Dua Lipa in your docket, because you never know what she’ll pull out for 2022 styles.
