In the '90s, girls everywhere envied Topanga Lawrence's luscious locks on Boy Meets World. Twenty years later, the show's sequel, Girl Meets World, brought a new starlet to the limelight—and a new head of hair to lust over.
Though Girl Meets World had a short lifespan on the airwaves, Rowan Blanchard—the star of the spinoff—made quite the name for herself, and her picture-perfect bob did too.
Just last week, Blanchard debuted a new feathered bob on Instagram, complements of celebrity stylist Laurie Heaps (@_hairbylaurie). Heaps says the style is "sharp, edgy 90’s babe meets French girl chic."
“The ends of a feather are slightly textured, but it keeps a curved shape that still looks blunt,” Heaps says. “This is exactly how I cut her new chin length style. Rowan is always changing and evolving and the longer bob didn't reflect who she was anymore."
To begin, Heaps cut the base line in a soft “U” shape and then used a point cutting technqiue, taking the points of her scissors and chopping into the line to soften it.
