With celebs like Rochelle Humes, Brooke Vincent and Hilary Duff all recently swapping their long locks for shorter, above-the-shoulders haircuts, 2023’s trend for bobs clearly isn’t going anyway. And the latest famous face to go for the chop is Olivia Bowen.

While Olivia, who gave birth to son Abel back in June, is no stranger to wearing her hair in a “lob” (long bob) – usually styled in beachy waves – she also regularly switches between lengthy extensions and effortless “mum buns”. But it seems that the star likes her hair best when it’s short, as she’s just gone for the chop again – and it’s one of her shortest hair looks yet.

Posting a short video to her Instagram stories, the Former Love Island star shows off her platinum blonde hair cut into a blunt new style that finishes just below her chin, styled sleek and straight with a middle parting. “Short hair is backkkkkk thank GOD!” she captions the clip, tagging in hairdresser Alice Taylor.

Olivia Bowen has gone back to her favourite short hairstyle

Olivia, who met her husband Alex Bowen on Love Island in 2016, has been praised for her realistic portrayal of motherhood. The star recently opened up about her birth experience, revealing that it was “the scariest moment of my life”, and was applauded by fans for posting unfiltered lingerie snaps for a campaign with Boux Avenue.

And if Olivia is looking for some inspiration for other ways to style her new hair, she could take advice from Rochelle Humes. The TV presenter recently revealed her favourite way to wear her new short bob, which is about the same length as Olivia’s.

Answering a fan question on how she styles her new short hair, Rochelle posted a snap on Instagram stories of it in loose waves. “This is my favourite style on the short hair,” she explained. “ @jayb.hair styled it in this pic and used a large mermaid waver on the lowest heat setting.”
