The Lob: The Haircut for Everyone
We give you the lowdown on why the ‘Lob’ has been crowned the hairstyle of the moment. It is literally every girl’s best friend…
For the past few seasons, the Lob has reigned over the hair world and there are no signs of it slowing down. If you haven’t already heard, the Lob is a mid-length haircut, also known as the ‘Long Bob’ that everyone is lusting over.
After Kim Kardashian chose to go down the Lob route last year, the hair trend has been elevated to even higher A-list status with the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whitely styling the cut with a tousled texture and Amy Adams wearing hers with sleek 50’s waves.
So why has this ‘do thrived for so long? Its versatility is key. Fancy a change from your long hair but not feeling overly brave? With the Lob, you don’t have to commit to just a singular look. The collarbone length is still long enough to pull into a chignon or a ponytail, which will transform your hairstyle for an occasion, and the lob is also chic enough to perform on its own too.
This impressive cut even suits all face shapes. So whether your face is a diamond, an oval or anything else in between, you are destined to pull off a Lob! The elegant mid-length cut can help elongate your neck, giving you a more statuesque profile – a definitely bonus point!
