With a centre parting and subtle face-framing layers that flick inwards, the ‘Beckham bob’ featured a shoulder-skimming length and blunt ends, that was both chic and cool in the mid nineties, says Emma Vickery, creative director at Percy & Reed. “The ’90s Beckham Bob was iconic, we’re not talking about the early ’00s blonde graduated bob that’s a whole different vibe altogether – this is all about the brunette, sleek and centred parted one-length bob,” she says.
“It will suit most face shapes, as you can differ the length to work with your face shape. On Victoria, it always sat below the jaw, above the shoulder shaping in the direction of the collar bone. It was ever so slightly A-line but was minimally layered, so it never felt deconstructed, it always had a structure.”
