HRNK! HAIR TREND! What have Mel B, Caroline Flack, Britney Spears and Emma Stone done to their 'dos?

Scary X Factor judge and Spice Girl lady Mel B is the latest celebrity to lob her hair off, all in the name of new season style.

Mel B first debuted her new ‘do for an American chat show, before slicking it back when she caught up with her X Factor acts in London on Thursday.

The X Factor judge isn’t the only celebrity to stick one perfectly manicured middle finger up at ‘tradish winter styling’ either, with Caroline Flack and Britney Spears among legions of stars to sign up to the summer bob (aka the SOB).

Caroline Flack enlisted the help of celebrity makeup artist and hair dresser Hannah Wynne to chop her locks off ahead of her Strictly Come Dancing debut, while Hollywood fave Emma Stone‘s dabbled with hair dye and different lengths in recent weeks. 

Elle Fanning said a big pish-posh to her platinum blonde ‘do, before going for the chop too. But it’s Britney Spears who wowed the Hair World (it’s a thing!) and then some, when she lopped off her signature honey-blonde curls in favour or a so-hot-right-now bob. 

Got an urge to update your ‘do too? Take a look at the stars who are bringing back the bob above – screengrab YOUR favourite, then take it to the salon to get a ‘do that best suits you.

Still scared? Don’t be! Make like Suki Waterhouse and have a go at the Hair Tuck instead. It’s the star’s worst kept secret! Simply pop a sweater/shirt or polo neck over your hair, then when your hair gets trapped beneath? Leave it there!

Pull a few loose strands out to frame your face, then tell everyone and anyone that you’re rocking a FREE new, new hairdo! 

Chic minus the ‘eek’, non!?
