Whether it’s on the red carpet, a magazine cover, or simply in passing, the lob is one classic haircut that you see everywhere. This simple, yet stunning look is not going out of style anytime soon and if you’re thinking of rocking it, come see us today at Salon Antoine. You can find us at 11092 Lee Highway in Fairfax, VA, and we hope to see you in the near future!

Face-Framing and Gorgeous Style

If you happen to be unfamiliar with the lob, we’re here to give you some insight on this everlasting haircut. You’ll love that this cut isn’t long or short, so you’ll be able to style it any way that you desire. It’s a slightly longer version of the bob and tends to fall just above your shoulders. While this haircut may be trendy, it’s definitely here to stay for a long time! What’s so amazing about it is that it flatters any face shape as well as hair texture. So, whether you have thick hair or thinner hair, it doesn’t matter—you’ll look fabulous! This is one popular haircut because unlike other cuts, you don’t have to commit to short or long hair, you can have both. Plus, it’s easy to manage and allows a lot of room to style it just how you want!

Finding the Right Lob Style for You

If you thought there was only one lob cut, you’d be surprised. We’re here to share a few that might spark your interest and show you just how versatile the lob is. One option to go with is an Asymmetrical A-line lob. This style falls longer in the front and shorter in the back, and once again, works with any face shape! Another choice to go with is the Blunt Cut. This cut is all one length and a bit shorter. However, thanks to its shorter length, it shifts the focus to your face, making your eyes and gorgeous features the center point. If you like your longer lob cut but want to add some volume, then an option might be long layers. You’ll instantly boost your hair with dimension all the way down to the tips. Additionally, with this style, contrasting lengths of layers work best to get that ideal volume that you’ve been looking for. One of the final choices is the classic shoulder-length. Think Kendall Jenner or Jessica Alba and you’ll know what we’re saying. This cut is effortless when styling and looks nothing but stunning!

Dress Up Your Lob

The lob dates back to the 1920s because it’s such a staple haircut and you’ll love that you can style it more than sixty different ways to make it pop. We’ll give you some insight into just a few of those so you have some ideas to work with! If you’re thinking of doing curls, you can do full-on curls or just curl part of the hair strands. Whether you’re going for the full curly look or wavy results, you won’t be disappointed and you’ll gain the attention of passersby when you step out of the door! Let’s say you want to walk around with straight hair for the day – go for it! You’ll be showing off your sleek length, the layers, and that gorgeous face. We can’t forget to note that you can always add some highlights, or go for an ombre look towards the bottom of the hair if you’re dying to switch things up. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
