I'm very late to the party on this one, this one being the lob. I only recently discovered that this term stands for the long bob, as seen on Kendal Jenner and Olivia Palermo to name just two. This style is exactly what I need to give my hair some life.
I have spent months trying to grow my hair, with the dream of having long, mermaid locks. Unfortunately, my hair seems to grow to an awkward length and then grows no longer. My hair lacks bounce, shape and lacks lustre – so it’s time for the chop! It always take some time to get to this decision. It’s the typical dilemma
to cut your hair or not to cut your hair?
After looking at hair inspiration, I have been well and truly charmed by images of the long bob. As for the colour, we will leave that for another day.
The long bob is longer in length than the standard bob and can be cut many ways to suit and flatter you - length in the front with a slightly shorter back for a more shapely cut. I prefer to opt for a softer cut, as opposed to a blunt, sharp cut. Also, I find longer layers easier to style – short layers cause me no end of problems. Although my hair never does as I want it to, I'm excited to cut away the dull ends and style away...
I have read that this style is low maintenance (I will be the judge of that) and easy to style. Luckily I have my favourite hair products at hand to add some texture and shine. New hair, new me?
Have you had the long bob before?
