8 Celebrity Bobs With Fringes Who Might Convince You To Chop

Getting a fringe is a big commitment. A decision we ask friends about. Twitter is solicited. Are you there God? Opting for a curtain of hair across one’s face is a milestone. A risk, with tears or endless selfies the potential outcomes. A bob elicits similar reactions and fears. Both are drastic paths to take. Together? You might as well be Napolean attempting to conquer Europe.

However, sometimes this neat combination can work. At Monday night’s GRAMMYs Taylor Swift, pictured above, presented a new pristine cut which got us thinking, maybe the bob with the fringe can be conquered. Here are seven famous women who made it work in their own unique way.
