The “lob” (or long bob) is back and in a big piece-y way. If you’re looking for a fresh and versatile confidence booster, this trendy cut is exactly what you need. Similar to the once popular shag hairstyle in the 90’s (think Jenn Aniston of Friends) the long bob starts with a blunt cut and is finished with different details such as angles, layers, and waves. Let’s take a look at some celebrities who are currently showing off their version of the lob:
Lucy Hale’s wavy style is playful and pretty!
Marion Cotillard’s straight and angular lob is looking sleek with her bangs styled to one side.
I love this look on Taylor Swift. She broke out of her comfort zone and went for a more sophisticated and classy style.
I’m sure you’ve all seen this picture of Kim Kardashian on Instagram, announcing that she too cut her hair short. The picture shows just a blunt textured cut here, but for the Grammys she was seen with messy waves and an abundance of texture.
Now if you’re one of those people such as myself, that has gotten a little too comfortable with the same hairstyle for years, my advice is to just go for it. I went back and forth for a while about whether or not I should take the plunge, but I finally went for it and I’m absolutely loving it! Here is my before and after picture:
I’m overjoyed by the way it turned out! I have to give a shoutout to my stylist at The Salon at Bridgewater. Her name is Belen and she is absolutely phenomenal. When she began taking off length, she only took off a little at a time, making sure I felt comfortable as she went further. If you live in New Jersey and need an amazing and experienced stylist I recommend booking an appointment with Belen. Just click the above link for her contact info.
