The forever impeccable Ms. Mary J. Blige is a standing fashion and music icon, and a great influence to the trends in black hairstyles. Here, she is pictured in attendance at Lorraine Schwartz’s “2BHAPPY” jewelry collection launch. She is sporting a glamorous, modern bob with super-chunky blond highlights. Mary J. Blige has proven that she can carry any hairstyle with poise and ferocity; this elegant asymmetrical cut with long bangs and face framing layers is no exception.
Mary’s look is achieved through a graduated bob, keeping the shortest hair in the back. The sides are cut into wedges, blending flawlessly into the back and falling into a sleek curl around her chin. The side of the cut kept tucked behind her ear emphasizes the slightly longer length of the opposite side of the style. A side part also highlights the edgy asymmetry of her cut. Mary’s bangs are long and are swept gracefully over her forehead to add a strong layer at eye level.
Short hairstyles like Mary J. Blige’s are increasing in popularity and tailor easily to suit different face shapes. Hair salons are ready with the right tools and products to re-create this style for you. Wearing a style like this one, you will be ready for your own red carpet and a night on the town!
