The Pob or the 'Posh Bob' is inspired by the iconic sharp bob hairstyle sported by singer and designer Victoria Beckham (aka Posh).

The asymmetric bob is signature straight, with stacked, shorter texture at the back. The style was dubbed the 'Pob' a few years back, as it became popular after Victoria was seen sporting many versions of it during public appearances.

Other celebs like pop divas Rihanna, Katy Perry, actors Katie Holmes and Jenny Mccarthy have also shorter versions of it.

Style it right
An asymmetric bob provides the needed drama to a look, so keep the makeup balanced. For a day look, go for a matte lip in blush tones and adorn the eyes with just a single stroke of eyeliner.

For glam evenings, choose from dramatic cat eyes or a bold berry-hued lip. To change it up, curl your bob for a fun look.
