Hair Spotlight: The Lob Haircut

The Lob Haircut
What Celebrities Know about the Lob Haircut That You May Not Have Considered

The lob, or long bob haircut, and its relatives (the bob and wavy bob) are taking the hairstyle industry by storm. When famous celebrities like Kaley Cuoco or Lauren Conrad decided to chop off their long, beautiful locks for a shorter ‘do, suddenly everyone got curious and wanted to jump into the bandwagon. It is fun and daring to go for such a big hair change, especially for those who have sported long hair for most of their lives. But there is an upside to choosing to go for a lob, aside from an instantaneous desire to go with the trend.

The lob haircut is the happy medium between a bob and a long hair. It is neither too long nor too short. It is also an ultra feminine look that requires minimal styling without losing its versatility. But before you go exploring the many ways you can style a lob haircut, it is important to get a few things straightened out first.

Can You Wear a Lob?

Even though a long bob will suit mostly anyone, and is good for any hair type, it is important to ask this question first. If you are not sure, you can speak to your hairstylist if the cut would suit you. This haircut has nothing to do with your face shape. However, this might not be ideal for those with super thick or thin hair. For women with thick hair, chopping off your locks would entail a ton of work and it must also be thinned out because a bulky set of hair will never look good on a lob. A good remedy for thick hair is to go for a longer haircut and simply go for the textured look similar to most lob hairstyles.

Meanwhile, if you have super thin hair, a bob might be better suited for you. If you choose a haircut that falls right between your jaw and shoulders, it is easy for your hair to become (and look) stringy. The lack of thickness might not be able to support this kind of texture. Plus, the length will also make your hair look thinner than it already is!

Styling a Lob

One way to wear a lob is soft and flowing form. This hairstyle features soft curls for that light and easy look that can be easily transitioned from day to night. This can be styled with the use of a 1-1/2 inch barrel curling iron and the misted with a medium hold hairspray to finish. For more volume, you can flip your hair and make sure it is lifted off its roots.

Adding soft layers on a lob is another great way to style this haircut. Start off by spraying your hair with your blow drying spray. Make sure that the hair is coated from roots to ends. Then, separate hair into small sections before blow drying them. Use a round brush to turn the ends under as you blow dries each section. This is a great styling technique for women with medium to thick hair.

One of the most popular ways to style a lob these days is with an asymmetrical finish. Prep your hair with a straightening cream before blow drying with the use of a paddle or flat brush. Wait for hair to dry before dividing it into three different sections. Set your flat iron on the lowest heat setting before working it into 1-inch section of hair at a time. When you reach the end of the hair, turn your wrist slightly to create a soft bend.

To maintain your lob haircut, make sure to visit your hairdresser every 5 weeks. This will help you maintain the length to around the collarbone or else it will look awkward once it starts to grow out.

  2. Love this trend! The only downside to it is that I find clients get frustrated because it grows out quite quickly.
