What, exactly, is a bob? How does it differ from "short hair"? If I asked a (competent) stylist to cut my hair in a bob, what would I get? Is it what I call "short but long" hair--chin length or so overall, but no short layers around the face or at the crown?

What is an "inverted" bob? Is it the haircut that is so popular in the straight-haired world right now, the one that is shorter in back and longer on the sides?

I realize that these questions may have been answered somewhere upthread, but it's a long thread, so someone, have mercy on me!
