Melanie Griffith’s New Side-Parted Bob Is The Perfect 50-Plus Hairstyle


The world’s eternal obsession with the bob shows no signs of abating – which is good news, really, because there is a bob to suit everyone. While those in the 50-plus camp – from Demi Moore to Helen Mirren – have been embracing their lengths of late, that doesn’t mean the shorter bob cut is a no-go as you get older. Melanie Griffith, who is 66, proved as much on Monday.


Having swapped her mid-length blonde locks (complete with bangs) for a chic, blunt-cut bob, Griffith – who is mum to another hair icon, Dakota Johnson – wore her silver-blonde hair in a deep side parting. With effortless texture and a big pair of sunglasses on her face, the actor looked super cool in a casual jeans and T-shirt combo.

Proof that a directional cut like this is a great style to try whatever your age, Griffith’s blunt bob is super low maintenance. Whether you air-dry and go or indulge in a blow dry, it’s the perfect length to create a multitude of looks. Long enough to scrape into a ponytail and short enough to make a statement, it makes light work of framing the face, too.
