Asymmetrical bob

Wells says this 'do featured hair "shaved close to the head on one side, and the other side was a traditional bob. It was a totally acceptable buttoned-up hair style on one side and then destroying it and being really punk on the other."<br>
<br>
Look to Victoria Beckham or Mary J. Blige for today's version, but Wells says you have to be daring for this cut because "the hard thing ... is that they become cartoonish in a matter of seconds."<br>
