Change Up Your Lob

By July 8, 2021No Comments

If you don’t want to completely get rid of your lob that you’re currently rocking but want to make some changes to it, we’ll give you a few options! Once you’re ready to try one of these, give us a call at Salon Antoine to schedule an appointment. We hope to hear from you!

Angle or Asymmetrical

Do you want to try a new length? If so, you might opt for an angled lob or an asymmetrical one. If you go with the first, your hair will be longer at the front and shorter in the back. The end result is a gorgeous and unmistakable look! The other option is the asymmetrical lob, which is longer on one side and shorter on the other. This cut is super edgy and how long and short you want the sides is totally up to you. No matter which of these you choose, you’ll be walking around with a timeless style. And the length is still long enough for you to be able to straighten it and enjoy a sleek look or add in some waves or curls, since it falls roughly around your shoulders. Plus, you can even add in some highlights if you choose to have a contrast of color!

On the other hand, how great is it that we can switch up our looks without touching the length? That’s because of the magic of layers. These don’t just provide a new style, they add volume as well. Also, you can choose from short, mid-length, and long layers to complement your overall style. These are a great way to try something new if you’ve been rocking a blunt look for some time. They also work on all types of hair! So, if you’ve got naturally curly or straight locks, you can still get some layers for even more richness and dimension. Our stylists are here to help you figure out which ones work best for your hair texture and face shape, so make sure to ask us when you stop in for a visit.

Of course, you can never go wrong with a different hair color. And these days, there are so many options with shades that you can choose from and you can stick with a subtle or big change when dying your strands. From the ombre to the sombre to balayage and full head of color, you have limitless options! Perhaps you’ve had a dark brown or a black hue for a while and now want a lighter shade. In this case, we recommend a chestnut brown or even a blonde shade. You can’t go wrong with any of these! When you don’t want to completely change the color, you can just opt for some highlights that happen to be a shade or two lighter than the current hue. If you do like experimenting with colors, we can incorporate two or three different ones that are sure to look gorgeous when mixed together.

When you’d like to do something different with your lob, come by Salon Antoine! We are open six days a week and look forward to working on your locks. See you soon!
