Later, from the 50s to 70s, this hairstyle hit its glorious days. The image of American women wearing short blonde, curly bob cuts with red lipstick had become one of the most iconic looks in history. The iconic look hit Hollywood, fuelled by silver screen icons such as Marilyn Monroe.
After that, the bob bowl cut took over the 80s, with the rocketing popularity of the French pop icon – Mireille Mathieu. But what’s so special about this haircut? It perfectly frames the face with the ends of your hair curved inwards. The new bob style had blown a new wind through the world of fashion. It was given a unique name: the “helmet head” look.
