Best Female Celebrity Bob Hairstyle On TV Currently?


Dear Karen,


Who would you say has the best female celebrity bob hairstyle on TV currently?  Please also explain why.




Dear Marian,

When it comes to the best female celebrity bob hairstyle on TV currently I think Patricia Arquette wins hands down.

The actress who is starring in the highly anticipated new CBS CSI spinoff in the Spring of 2015 appeared in the series pilot in a stunning picture perfect platinum blonde straight bob hairstyle.

Patricia who played Allison Dubois on TV's Medium from 2005 - 2011 has worn a variety of hairstyles, lengths, textures and colors during the course of her long and highly underrated acting career.

When she wears her hair in a medium length sleek bob like she did on the CSI:  CYBER Pilot, she looks spectacular.

PatriciaArquette-3_250hThe actress who will play Special Agent Avery Ryan in the new CSI: CYBER has soft blue eyes which really pop when framed by striking platinum blonde hues.

Her face shape is very well suited for a straight bob hairstyle.

Patricia's bob is very slightly layered around the hairline to give it a fresh look with lots of soft swing.  It appears to be beveled and rounded to give it fullness throughout.

It's such a classic hairstyle which can be worn parted down the center as Patricia does above, or from either side.

The actress sometimes wears her bob hairstyle brushed over to one side from a deep part.

Although a classic and straightforward hairstyle, the bob can be slightly modified to morph into a range of looks.

I hope Patricia keeps a version of the stunning bob hairstyle she wore on the CSI:  CYBER pilot.

Best wishes,

Karen Marie Shelton
