Hilary Duff is taking us back to the early 00s with a new flicked-out bob haircut

Hilary Duff gave us some of our most major 00s pop culture. From starring as the titular character in Lizzie McGuire, acting opposite Chad Michael Murray and Jennifer Coolidge in A Cinderella Story and introducing us to some of the best 00s hits like So Yesterday, she has been an icon of Y2K culture.

Even though the star is all grown up now and starring in How I Met Your Father, she couldn’t resist giving us a little 00s nostalgia in the form of a brand new vintage hairstyle. In an Instagram story posted by her husband, Matthew Koma, Hilary can be seen posing for a selfie alongside him as they attend Ireland Baldwin’s baby shower. However, it was her hair that had everyone talking, as the star appeared to be rocking a very 00s-inspired bob complete with flicked-out ends – not unlike the one she had during her time as Lizzie McGuire.


Until recently, Hilary’s trademark blonde hair had been styled in a chest length cut, which the actress often wore in loose waves. Her dramatic new bob has been chopped above her shoulders, and she wears it almost entirely straight except for the flicked-out ends.

Hilary’s go-to hairdresser, NikkI Lee, was the stylist behind the cut, and had chopped Hilary’s hair off into the blunt bob just a few days before she headed to the baby shower.

Blunt bobs like Hilary’s are ideal for creating the illusion of fuller, thicker hair thanks to the blunt ends which add weight and volume. The flicked-out bob has slowly been making its way back into popularity thanks to the resurgence of 00s trends, and although the style originated in the 60s, it gained popularity in the late 90s and early 00s.

You only need to watch an 00s rom com or two to see what we mean – there’s barely a film from that era that doesn’t feature at least one character rocking the flicked out bob, usually teamed with a skinny scarf and some frosted lipgloss.

However, Hilary managed to give us the perfect 2023 take on the trend, choosing to opt for a sleek finish. She also stuck to her signature middle part, and chose to tuck it neatly behind her ears, styling it with a simple black dress and oversize turquoise earrings.

She also kept her makeup minimal and fresh looking; not a blue eyeshadow or sparkly lip gloss in sight for the perfect update on this nostalgic look.
