The Lob: Hollywood's Hottest Haircut
What’s the one look hair stylists insist works on everyone, can make hair appear healthier and happens to be perfect for the steamy summer season?
Meet the lob, or the long bob.
“The lob, also known as the demi bob, is the hot new trend for this season,” reveals Eugene Smith, senior stylist at Ted Gibson in New York City. “It’s a chic new look that has gotten really popular for the girl who once had long hair, but isn’t ready for the big chop of the traditional bob.”
Unlike the bob, which is ideally cut at jaw-level, the lob skims the shoulders, making it long enough to be worn in a ponytail or bun, but also short enough to create a sleek look without hours under the blow dryer.
