Longtime best friends Mandy Moore and Minka Kelly debuted freshly chopped locks this past week, each opting for a trendy long bob, or lob, for short. While Moore and Kelly enlisted the help of different hairstylists for their new ‘dos, both stars were eager to show off their asymmetrical ready-for-summer style.
Moore revealed her haircut first by sharing a snap of her new asymmetrical trim on Instagram, which she captioned, “Thanks for the bad-ass cut, @gregoryrussellhair! #summerhair.” Twenty-four hours later, Kelly posted a picture of her own transformation, and wrote, “Sooo @marktownsend1 and I had some fun with the scissors today! #chopchop.” While the actress didn’t go as short as her pal (Moore started with a more even-length bob), she did take quite a few inches off her signature long tresses.
Moore and Kelly are the latest pair to jump on the lob bandwagon, with stars like Hilary Duff, Jennifer Aniston, and Pippa Middleton already on board. We love both of their fresh cuts, but the similar styles have us wondering if this was a hairdo coincidence or a deliberate plan between BFFs!
