Anna Wintour (born November 3, 1949) has had some version of this classic bob for decades. While the bob is a classic, Wintour is stylish enough change it up even just a bit over the years so she and her hair don't look dated.

While Wintour has gotten away with having the same haircut forever, not all of us can and should keep the same hairstyle for 20 years. It's natural to want to, because once you find something that works, you kind of like to stick with it.

Some styles are ageless and timeless -- a shoulder-length haircut with light layers for example, or a classic bob like this one -- but many women can get stuck in a style rut wearing a cut that was fine in 1990, but just doesn't work as well in 2014.

It may be time to get a hair makeover.
