Kendall Jenner has sparked a frenzy amongst her fans after debuting what appears to be a new bob hairstyle. The Keeping up with the Kardashians star caused a social media meltdown when she took to Snapchat and shared a photo of herself, her trademark long locks falling just above her shoulders.

In the close-up snap, the 20-year-old model pulls an expression of mock-surprise, with only the bottom half of her face showing, her black tresses left down in tousled waves. Kendall kept the rest of her look simple with a slick of nude lipgloss, looking the epitome of casual chic in a pale grey vest top.
There has been speculation amongst her fans that the star has not actually gone for the chop, but was teasing her followers with a faux bob style, similar to when her close friend and fellow model Gigi Hadid opted for a slicked back bobbed wig at the American Music Awards earlier this year.

However, Kendall put rumours to rest when she stepped out a few hours later with brother-in-law Kanye West to see a show in Los Angeles, flaunting her striking makeover, which she teamed with statement red lipstick and a chic yellow ensemble.
Kendall isn't the only one of the Kardashian-Jenner clan to have opted for a chop in the last few weeks. Khloé Kardashian gave her fans major hair envy when she unveiled her shortest hairstyle to date, created by celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin.

Jen delighted her 1.5 million Instagram followers when she gave them a peek at Khloé's new haircut. "Fresh "just hits the shoulder" for the little @khloekardashian," she captioned a snap of Khloé beaming as she flaunted her makeover. "Makeup @styledbyhrush How cute is she?"

"I always dreamt of KOKO with short hair… dreams come true guys," she quipped, before adding that fellow hair guru Tracey Cunningham had coloured Khloé's hair into its blonde hues.
This is not the first time that Khloé has opted to get a bob, but her previous styles had always been shoulder-length – not to mention that in recent months the star has been growing out her tresses and using extensions for long, beach waves.
