Which ‘Lob’ Do You Love?

Olivia Palermo
Somewhere along the line, the long version of the bob haircut became one of those words like “brunch” (breakfast + lunch) or “Brangelina” (Brad + Angelina), morphing into the “Lob.” Want to sound really intellectual? These are known as “portmanteau words.” Be sure to use that one over brunch with Brangelina the next time you’re abroad.

In the meantime, here we have a series of lobs on a variety of lovely celebs, and we want to know – which lob is your favorite? 

Jennifer Hudson
And which lob do you feel would look best on you? Now, those might not be the same two lobs, depending on your hair’s texture, length, and how much time you’re willing to commit to styling.

The beauty of the lob is that while it is stunning when styled to play up its angles and shine through blowouts and flat-ironing, it is also versatile enough to wear au natural, since it is long enough to feel sexy yet short enough to free up your natural texture.

Naomi Campbell
When you look at these lobs, notice each one is a complete package: styling, multi-dimensional haircolor, and full makeup. 

Yvonne Strahovski
And notice the versatility of the basic cut: Center parts, deep side parts, side-swept bangs, blunt bangs, piece-y bits, height at the crown, forward angles with the back a bit shorter than the front, ends curled under, ends flipped up.

No matter the lob, it’s a style that doesn’t just hang there. All of them have nice movement, whether it’s a bit tousled and lived-in, or sliding like silk. So let us know which Lob you love.

Until next week, ciao!
