THIS JUST IN: long hair is on its way out, and taking its place this winter is the lob. AKA the long bob.
The versatile, universally flattering cut gives you all the benefits of having shorter hair (but that you can still tie up) while not being as… ‘confronting’ as a bob or pixie cut, especially if you’re going from long hair.
Typically the length of a lob can sit anywhere from just above your shoulders to an inch below your collarbones, and you can still play around with layers, face-framing pieces and fringes.
It’s also a great cut if you sit on the ‘low-maintenance’ side of the hair scale. Messy and textured hair gives the cut added edge, and styling your new cut can range from loose curls, bouncy waves or even just a spritz of dry shampoo or texturising spray as you run out the door.
Now the only thing left to do is to pick a cut. Luckily we’ve got 30 options for you to choose from.
