A haircut in the shape of a rounded mushroom cap, according to beauty industry experts, will become the “hottest” trend of 2024. In general, the outgoing year, 2023, can be called the year of the “bob”: we had a “chopped bob” in the style of Jenna Ortega, a “smooth bob” in the style of Hailey Bieber and several other similar trends in the field of short hair. Zendaya, the German actress/singer Lena Mayer-Landrut, and others were seen wearing bobs this year. After all, this hairstyle gives its owner confidence and allows you to quickly change looks. It has long become a classic, and as we can see, it doesn’t want to go away from trends. At least in the near future.

Of course, in 2024 it would be possible to take a break from beans, but that was not the case. A creative update of such hairstyles is already rushing to us. Where did the mushroom bean come from? You may remember 90s stars like Drew Barrymore or Uma Thurman with black hair from Pulp Fiction (1994). However, it was initially “flapper girls” who made it popular back in the 1920s. The characteristic feature of the bob is a very voluminous look with straight edges and polished top hair, as well as slightly curled ends that create a domed effect. Just like the head of a mushroom, even and smooth.

According to celebrity hairstylist Dimitris Giannetos, whose clients include Amal Clooney and Gigi Hadid, the mushroom bob is typically a "trapezoidal bob that stops short of the shoulder line." And it leaves plenty of room for variation, like having bangs that are slightly wavy or straight. And most importantly, it is suitable for all hair types.

To style a bob, it is recommended to first apply a little mousse to your hair to create a base for fullness. The hair is then separated and blow-dried using a small round brush. After this, the hair should be allowed to cool slightly, and then combed with a paddle brush before fixing with hairspray.
