The Lob and Bob: A Perfect New Look for Summer

May 13 2018


When you think about it, summer is the perfect time to experiment with a short cut. The weather is warming up and before you know it the sun will be beating down relentlessly. While your long-haired friends are sweating, you could be enjoying summer heat with your cool bob. Here are some of the latest trends to help you decide if you should cut it short, or keep it long.

The Lob
The lob is similar to the bob, but longer. It’s typically cut just above, at, or below shoulder length. It's a great hairstyle for any hair texture and is a better length than the bob for those with a round face. You may have seen this haircut on celebrities such as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Alexa Chung. 

Blunt End Bob with Waves 
If you’re looking for a laid-back look than a bob with blunt ends and loose waves is the perfect look for that. It’s a beautiful look that’s we've been seeing among celebrities such as Lucy Hale and Margot Robbie.

Longer Bob with Bangs 
This hairstyle looks sleek and sophisticated and is the perfect hairstyle for the office. What’s great about it, you can still put your hair up in a ponytail when you are working out. Amanda Brugel is one celebrity that you’ll see wearing this stunning hairstyle.

So, which hairstyle should you choose? These hairstyles complement every face shape and hair texture. If you’re not ready to take the plunge with a short bob, start with a lob. If you love the lob, you can take it a bit shorter at your next scheduled hair appointment.
