the pob is back ladies and gents. victoria ‘posh’ beckham’s angular bob is probably the most iconic haircut of the past decade. the pob (posh+bob = pob…linguistic wizardy at its best) made its debut while victoria was still a spice girl. after a few years of obsessing over extensions, victoria returned to her signature style and instantly lent an air of contemporary sophistication to her look.
suddenly everyone and their mama wanted the pob… it was all over the place:
victoria then experimented with variations of the bob: shorter, chunkier, blonder.
then she chopped it all off for a pixie which i loooooooooved in its growing out stage.
i was so influenced that i chopped off six inches off my own hair in order to emulate the famous pob. and let me tell you. iLOVEit. i haven’t changed it since.
however, after vic’s pixie i was worried the pob might be facing its demise UNTIL she was spotted with her signature hair earlier this week in London.
DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW EXCITING THIS IS FOR ME?!!!
Here she is in Heathrow on May 9th 2010
