This year may just be the year of the lob, or the medium-length, shoulder sweeping haircut that has become a favorite among Hollywood starlets.
And while stylists insist this is one haircut that flatters almost everyone, there’s one actress who has showed just how versatile this style is.
“A lot of my clients specifically ask for Olivia Munn’s haircut,” explains celebrity stylist Marc Mena, who has tamed the tresses of Christie Brinkley, Ivanka Trump, and yes, Munn herself. “They love it because even though it’s a very polished ‘do, you can mix it up by adding some waves or leave it straight. Texture can give it some edge while a sleek look can add some sophistication.”
While Mena adds that your lob may require frequent upkeep to maintain its moveable shape, it’s a stylish look you’ll instantly want to show off, especially if you’re not ready to commit to a cropped cut.
“This haircut is widely popular because it’s so versatile. It’s not quite short or long, it’s right in between,” says Mena. “There’s so many ways you can wear and style it since it’s a perfect length. You can turn it into a shorter look by curling your strands to make it bounce up or make it longer by running an iron over it for a sleek look.”
