The most popular short hair style for mature women over 40: the blonde bob cut with side swept bangs.

What exactly does an angel look like? Few among us humans claim to know that answer, but most would agree that Cate Blanchett’s look for the opening of a Louis Vuitton store in Sydney, Australia fits the general profile!

First of all, examine the lovely goldenrod tone of Cate’s side-parted bob and her angelic smiling visage. Next, cast your eyes on the slightly raised layer that begins at the crown, giving the hairstyle a more formal bearing. Not to be missed is Cate’s white translucent dress topped with an ephemeral sheer overlay! Maybe Cate is the secret connection between heaven and the heavenly Louis Vuitton?

This short subtly layered bob with soft waves and side-swept bangs is an ideal hairstyle for Oval, Oblong, Square, and Diamond face shapes.
