 The long bob is a big trend.   It is not considered long hair, nor can it be called a short hair because the cut is blunt and just above the shoulders.  To get this easy to manage hairstyle here are a few tips to follow:

1. Longer bobs can be bland if it is cut too blunt. Stacked layers in the back add dimension.
2. A bob can't be too layered, or it's not a bob. Gwyneth's bob here is more edgy because the stylist thinned out the ends with scissors or a razor.
3. Ask the stylist to make your bob a touch shorter in the back.
4. This cut works on straight and wavy hair . It's a versatile cut because you can wear it wavy or flat-ironed.

Actress Ashley Greene is famous for her role in the "Twilight" series movies and cut her hair so it could fit under a wig she wore for her role.
New pictures show she's already growing out her gorgeous bob, which is flattering to her face. "I didn't have to go quite so short but I figured it's the only time I would ever do it... it's cute short, but I'll grow it back out," she said to InStyle magazine.

Gwyneth made the long bob popular back in 2008 when she cut off her long hair. Here, we see her and her friend (an ex-neighbor) Liv Tyler both in the long bob.

Gwyneth Paltrow's sophisticated long bob is a terribly sexy version of the bob. She parts the hair in the middle and the cut is at an angle -- a tad shorter in back than in front. Her naturally wavy hair is then flat-ironed to sleek perfection. 

What you need for this look: 

1. A large, rounded brush (don't curl the ends too far under, lest you end up looking like an 80's throwback). 

2. A decent flat iron. 

3. A gloss spray for after you flat iron.

Here is a good picture showing how the back of a bob hairstyle can be shorter than the front, following the angle of the jaw. This makes the traditional long bob look fresher.
