What Is a Lob Haircut?

The definition of «lob haircut» is a long bob, meaning a super-versatile cut with hair length between the collarbone and chin - somewhere above the shoulders, at shoulder level, or just below them. Since lobs are neither too short nor too long, they allow for numerous styling options from a sharp and sleek lob to beach waves. Also, it’s possible to make an elegant updo for a special occasion.

Lob vs Bob

Lob - 2 Instagram : agence_salon If you’re considering a brand new look but can’t choose between lob hair and bob cut, it all depends on where you are now. If you’ve got long hair and want to experiment, you should better try a lob first. If you’ve already had a lob, go for a bob - even if you don’t like it much, your hair will soon grow back into a lob, which is your safe tested zone. Also, when choosing between these two hairstyles, bear the next in mind:
  • Length
A lob is usually shoulder-length, while bob is cut at jaw-level. A lob can be styled into an updo, a braid, a bun, or a ponytail, while bob is too short to make something more complex than a half-up.
  • Texture
Both lobs and bobs work great with sleek, straight, choppy, textured, wavy, and curly hair. However, for extremely thick hair, a long bob is the only option since cutting it too short makes hair frizzy, unruly, and puffy. As for very thin hair, a bob will give it extra pump and volume.
  • Face Shape
Lobs work for all face shapes, while bobs can make a round or square face bigger.
  • Maintenance
Whichever you choose - lob or bob - you will have an easy-maintenance, stylish and sexy hairstyle that can harmoniously complement any outfit of yours.
