Lobs are a great style because they are not too short nor too long. To qualify as a lob, the hair must fall between the chin and the collarbone. It's just the right length for an effortlessly cool shape! Minimise the amount of layers and mess it up for a relaxed look.
Lob It All The Way
A long bob with soft waves that stop just short of your collarbone will help style your hair with panache, particularly if you have a round or heart-shaped face. Maintenance is low as well for these haircuts. Apply some mousse that adds volume on your wet hair and blow dry before curling the ends in alternating directions. The look works best on straight hair. If you want to go the Beyonce way with an asymmetrical wavy lob, go to a hairstylist who knows their geometric angles well! Parting hair close to the middle can enhance the illusion of an elongated face.
Bangs or Not?
Choppy sideswept bangs and a lob on a round face are definitely on trend, while blunt bangs are a big no-no; square faces are not flattered by bangs. A lob with an off-centre part or extreme side part does the trick for those with this face type. Choppy bangs look great on angular faces too while oval faces can carry off this look with or without the bangs.
A Style for All Seasons
One reason for the popularity of the wavy lob is that it's a great look to sport any time of year. Easy to style with a young and playful air to it-what more do you need? Everyone from Kim Kardashian to Taylor Swift has been spotted the stylish wavy lob.
