Now Trending In The Hair World: Cleopatra Bobs

(Source: Brendon Thorne/Getty Images AsiaPac)When two of the biggest pop stars started sporting the exact same hairstyle, we began to wonder if we missed a hair trend memo somewhere along the way. Both Katy Perry and Rihanna have been rocking Cleopatra-style 'chops recently. Although the jet black, banged-bob look isn't for everyone, it seems as if Perry and Rihanna (who are known to be BFFs, mind you) both agreed this is a great look for each of them. Take a look at our favorite Cleopatra-inspired hair moments from both singers, and then let us know which star you think nailed the look.

Katy Perry channeled the Egyptian queen in her "Dark Horse" video, where she opted for a gilded version of the cut.

She even wore the style with a cute bow on the runway...
