There’s something timeless about a shapely bob. From messy to sleek, a bob makes a desirable fashion statement all year round. The perfect length to frame your face while still giving you enough hair to play with, an easy-to-style bob keeps your look moving. Always having an on-trend moment, the humble bob has been making waves and paving fashion paths for years. And now, the slightly longer lob has become just as iconic.
What's the Difference Between a Bob and a Lob?
Bobs are simple, modern, and pretty low-maintenance. A traditional bob skims the jaw and shows off the neck for a sexy little peek-a-boo skin moment. Effortless with an air of nonchalance, a textured bob can be tousled, and a sleek cut can be sophisticated. If you have poker-straight, fine hair, you can pull off a blunt bob with ease. But if your hair is kinky or wavy, you might want to keep the cut a little longer. Curly hair especially often suits a bob with a few layers cut in.
A lob is essentially a long bob. Still short enough to frame the face, it often falls a little further towards the collarbone. The perfect cut if you want to elongate a round face, a lob has an easy-going essence that’s hard not to fall for. If you have thicker hair, a lob will keep it weighed down and help keep the hair styled. For a totally fresh appeal, keep the cut longer at the front ... or blunt all the way around.
