For what seems like forever, everyone was all about long, luscious and healthy locks, however since the New Year hit, everyone has been getting the chop. This 2015 trend has been given the clever name ‘The Lob’ and it is a ‘do’ that is slowly taking over the world!
The Lob is all over our social media accounts, with celebrities like Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian and Cheryl Fernadez-Versini all going for the new hair trend.
Here at Hessions we’re going to answer your questions surrounding the growingly popular ‘Lob’.
What is’ The Lob’?
The Lob is an abbreviation of ‘The Long Bob’, basically this style is longer than your typical bob haircut.
Do I need thick hair to wear a lob?
Almost anyone can wear a bob, but discuss it with your stylist and they’ll tell you if you shouldn’t. With thin hair cutting your hair to this length will create far more volume than you ever would have had with longer hair, and you can also use texturizing sprays for a voluminous look if that’s the style you’re trying to go for.
The only people who we would advise to avoid the lob are those with extremely thick hair. Cutting this into incredibly thick hair could take a lot of time as well as thinning out of your gorgeous locks. If you do fancy going for something different this year with your thick hair, try slightly longer than the lob, possibly just past the shoulder to keep your natural texture.
What do I ask for in the hairdressers?
If you have seen a picture of the exact lob you want, be it Cheryl, Kim or anyone else, bring it with you and show it to your stylist. Don’t be afraid to discuss exactly what you want and listen to their advice, so you can get exactly the right lob for you!
How often will I have to get my hair cut?
A lob, being different from the original bob, if it gets any longer than the collar bone area, it can flip out at the bottom in an undesirable way, so with this particular haircut, you’re probably best getting a cut every 6 weeks or so.
We hope this helps answer any questions you might have before going for the chop and let 2015 be the year of the lob!
