Gwyneth Paltrow is celebrating her 41st birthday today, so to celebrate we thought we'd check out her beauty files. It was 'round about April 2008 that the A-lister chopped off her hair, got her sexy back and set the worldwide trend for lobs. Before then she'd played it kind of safe with her long locks. Perhaps she was still trying to recover from the matching his 'n' hers Brad Pitt crop — remember that?! But now there's no stopping the actress, blogger and Estée Lauder spokeswoman. She consistently wows on the red carpet, time and time again. But, today marks another special occasion for the blonde beauty, it's Goop's 5th anniversary! So, Happy birthday, Gwyneth! We hope you have a fabulous day.
The lob had its moment earlier this year, but a new season calls for a new style, right? Well, if Beyoncé, Karlie Kloss, and Nicole Richie are any indication, the asymmetrical bob is poised to take over as the new haircut supreme. The great part about this style is its versatility, as you can tailor it to your own personal style. Looking for a classic shape? Keep it short in the back and a bit longer in the front. Want something with a little more edge? Have one side longer than the other. The possibilities are limitless. Now, flip through our list of celebrity inspiration and find your perfect style.
At the West Coast premiere of The Lone Ranger, Julianne Hough had yet another enviable hair moment.

We adore the deep centre-part, and it's one we'll be trying this week for sure. Click through to see her lovely locks from all angles.

So when Nicole went to Lecompte for her latest haircut, he was the one who suggested her lob. "He was definitely more excited than I was," Nicole said. "It's something we've been doing since we've known each other." The haircut spurred a bevy of copycats and is currently one of the biggest trends for 2013.
But keeping the cut pristine can sometimes be an uphill battle. Luckily, Nicole has a secret weapon aside from Lecompte. "I have frizzy hair, but Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil is something I use all the time," she says. "It just gives it that radiant shine and keeps it from being frizzy." Nicole actually collaborated with Suave to create the Suave Shine Suite, an interactive hub for women who need a little help on their hair and makeup.
Although the suite is a place for women to go digging for trends, Nicole is never one to pick up a style because it's popular. Her advice? "Don't follow trends. You have to know your own body and what looks good on you," she says. And if all else fails, become best friends with your hairstylist.
