When speaking of a “lob haircut” stylist, it means a hairstyle with a longer hair length than a traditional bob – somewhere level with the shoulders, between the chin and collarbone – this is a typical medium lob.
Short haircuts are a little shorter – just above the shoulders.
Lob hair styling is very diverse: the hair can be made into a braid, a topknot, a pony, a bun – any updo you want.
A long bob makes thick hair look less puffy and unruly. For thin hair, textured lobes or lob haircuts with colored highlights are best and add extra volume to the hair, as you can see in the photos below:
Alluring straight lob hairstyles
Although wavy lob hairstyles are more popular among women, lob hairstyles in particular have also spawned many win-win celebrity images.
A naturally straight haircut always runs the risk of looking too plain and too simple. To avoid this, try to play with goodbye.
A side panel makes lobes look fresh and interacts harmoniously with facial features (as we all know our face is not symmetrical and this asymmetry makes us so completely imperfect.)
A zigzag goodbye adds a touch of childish calamity and negligence.
Excited straight rags require regular ironing. So don’t forget to use a heat protectant to prevent your locks from being damaged by high temperatures.
Medium lob styles that you are going to love
The middle flap can vary from a shoulder-length flap haircut to longer A-line flap variations. This is an ideal hair solution for girls who want to change their image and cut their long hair, but have never had short hair.
Lob haircut is a super safe area and can be a comfortable first step towards possible major changes in the future (e.g. bob or pixie).
Choose one of the three options below and you will never fail with your brand new style!
Cute short lob haircuts
For those lovers of cute, romantic styles, these disheveled and layered short haircuts are great. With a side-swept crown and unruly wavy locks like this one, a textured lob can add slight feminine vibes.
In combination with sunglasses and a casual shirt or a sexy cocktail dress, a cute short haircut underlines your delicate nature.
Even strict black lobes look super cute after adding some movement and wavy layers.
How do you achieve this light, structured volume?
Your absolute must-have is a texturizing spray or dry shampoo. After washing your hair, you can apply a product and blow-dry it. Another option is to use a curling iron after the hair is dried and separate the waves with your hands and some texturizing gel.
What about a lob haircut with bangs?
If you want to spice up your lob haircut and are ready to do more than just change the parting, adding bangs can be a cool option. With added texture all over the lob hairstyle, it looks amazing.
Lob haircut with bangs became a new trend last year and it still holds the top fashion position. Among the positives of bangs, we should also mention that it helps make a large forehead look smaller and even out the whole face.
Thin, sloppy and long – this is what stylish bangs will look like in 2021. To keep them beautiful, don’t forget to style them regularly with a round brush and hairdryer.
Different types of praise
How to style a lob haircut so that it goes ideally with any outfit? The most important thing is that the hairstyle reflects your inner voice and that you feel very comfortable
We have various stylish and sexy ideas for lobs for all tastes:
In the first picture you can see a feminine and glamorous A-line rag with blonde highlights. The asymmetry of this cut along with the slightly messy texture and play with the hues give a traditional long bob hairstyle natural volume and added movement.
The blunt rag cut from the second image is an example of a longer textured rag. It goes perfectly with casual outfits and simple clothes. Girls with thick and unruly hair especially appreciate this option.
Unlike the previous wavy lob hairstyles, the third option is more elegant, simple and classic. Don’t you want it to look too trivial? Adding the bangs in the front is the solution – that’s exactly what every celebrity fashionista does to update the hairstyle.
The best lob ideas for hair styling
As mentioned earlier, the lob haircut is obviously one of the most versatile cuts. Let’s look at some of the numerous hairstyling options:
Beach-Inspired Straight Lob – Despite the stereotypes, this one can be a cherry on top of a gorgeous and luxurious outfit, not just an element of a casual street style. If necessary, add some paint to make your hair appear thicker
Posh Wavy White Flap – It doesn’t matter how to style a flap haircut if the color of your hair is 1000% perfect. This charming laid back long bob will make any image look cute and feminine.
Braided Lob – When talking about the best styling ideas for lob hairstyles, we can of course only mention different braids. They reveal your creativity, emphasize your individual style and always look charming
Shoulder length lob haircut pictures
The shoulder length lob haircut is more popular than a short lob haircut because it is less eccentric and much more versatile.
Plus, the medium length lob hairstyle offers tons of styling options like elegant upstyles, messy half-ups, disheveled top knots, and sleek ballerina buns.
Another benefit of shoulder length is that longer curls make up for the lack of hair thickness like in the first picture, while naturally thick hair looks stronger even in a longer lob.
Smooth and straight shoulder-length lobes look just cute and can be worn with romantic dresses, relaxed streetwear, and strict office outfits.
Stunning textured lob haircuts
It is always a good idea to add some movement and boho vibe to your straight lob hairstyles, especially when it’s a very bad day.
A textured lob haircut always looks more authentic and unique than simple, straight, short lob haircuts.
There are several ways to get the stunning texture: you can just let the hair dry naturally, apply a texturizing product down its length, and comb it with your fingers. You can also use a large curler or curling iron, spray the waves with a texturizing spray, and gently comb the locks to make them look more natural and disjointed.
Would you like to add something? Experiment with your parting. Try a side part for a playful romantic look or a zigzag parting for more volume at the roots.
Top wavy lob hairstyles
Wavy lob hairstyles have stood the test of time since the 1940s. No wonder different variations of waves are so popular as an essential part of lob hair styling.
Beach waves from the first photo, for example, never look too simple or simplify your image – on the contrary, they add sexy notes and retro vibes to your style.
Don’t forget to finish with a good gloss spray for a more chic wavy haircut from the second picture.
The fluffy and unruly wavy long bob from the third photo is probably the wildest, hottest twist on lob out of these three.
The blunt rag cut to try
Be careful with a blunt rag cut – you can accidentally set someone on fire (it’s so hot.)
In fact, getting a blunt haircut is not as easy as it may seem at first.
The main secret to making a fantastic blunt rag, not a sloppy head, is a high quality straight hair product and straightener.
Another important topic is choosing the right hair color when your natural looks too dull and boring. Cool white from the first picture is the hottest trend over the past few seasons, but you can also consider snow white, silver, or gray. Another cool thing is that you don’t have to dye your dark roots every two weeks – it is fashionable today too.
If you’re not ready for bright pops of color, stay safe and go for classic black (keep in mind that it will make you look a little older than you are) or chocolate brown (the most neutral and natural color you can choose).
