"A bob works with, not against, bone structure," says salon owner Rodney Cutler on MSN's Glo.

Cutler also suggests the best youthful, edgy and confident bob these days is the bob cut in the A-line style, as Keira's is cut here. A-line means the back is slightly shorter than the front, with an angle that can be seen from the side. The A-line is also called "graduated bobs" or "inverted bob hairstyles" and work nicely because they give hair movement, according to Cutler in Glamour magazine.

The bob is one of the 5 hottest short hair trends for 2014. Find out what the other 4 are in Short Hair: The Hottest Trends.
