According to Glamour Magazine, the Italian bob is taking inspiration from other trending bob cuts (choppy Lady Di vibes and the messier Frenchie bob, for instance), but is fuller, more luxurious and polished in its shape and texture. And honestly, you can totally see how the cut got its Italian name.

Basically, the magazine explains, the cut is a bit more glam than many other bob styles, which is the mood lots of us are chasing and two stylists in particular are leading the charge, serving up all the inspo we need.

Dying to try it out for yourself? Nick Latham and Sean Paul Nother, the talent behind the salon and Instagram account The Hair Bros have been using their platform to break down what, exactly, the Italian bob is.

If you are looking to explain it to the stylist at your local hairdressers, the Italian bob is 'chunky-ended, neck grazing and long enough to tie up, yet short enough to turn heads,” according to Latham.

"Ideal going into autumn, the chunky, blunt ends and minimal, subtle layers add a sumptuous weightiness to hair to make it feel thicker, fuller and more expensive."

Despite the lux and glossy finish, the cut is remarkably easy to style according to the experts.

“The beauty of this haircut is its versatility. The heaviness allows for that Parisian air dried feel when left natural, but you can put a brush through it for a nod to classic 60's glamour," explains Nother.

Even better, it looks fab no matter which way you flip it. "The Italian bob can be thrown into any parting with equal effect and to gain the second day volume we all love."
