Is this the new official hair cut for Irish influencers?

You can bet hairdressers across the country are sharpening their scissors this week for bob-mania as Sophie Murray and Pippa O’Connor debut their gorgeous new cuts

It’s giving “I saw Cady Heron wearing army pants and flip-flops, so I bought army pants and flip-flops”, but when we saw both Pippa O’Connor and Sophie Murray getting the chop within days of each other, we knew there was a trend afoot.

Arguably, Hailey Bieber kicked things off back at the start of the year with her blunt chop, below.

But recently, Irish influencer Sophie Murray followed suit, posting the sweetest video of her getting her boyfriend’s live reaction to the dramatically different hair cut.

Then, just yesterday, entrepreneur and influencer Pippa O’Connor Ormond lopped off everything below the shoulder too, and we knew the bob was back with a vengeance.

If you’re looking for bob inspo, look no further than actress Lucy Boynton, who’s long been a fan of the short, sharp cut, or Emma Stone who’s recently gotten the chop too. Zendaya has been working a bob lately too, and like the beauty chameleon she is, looks spectacular with it.
