In 2014, several celebrities lopped their long locks off in order to sport bobs. To name a few, Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, and Emma Stone all dared to have chin-length crops. Meanwhile, other celebrities grew their pixie cut out and rocked a long bob (or lob), such as Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence.
As “Year of the Lob” came to a close and 2015 began, several women still clamoured for the style, and its trendiness isn’t the only reason why it’s highly sought-after.
First of all, the shorter cut makes hair care and styling more manageable. It lets you spend less time primping and more time flaunting your locks. It’s also easy to style and sweep away from your face, which helps you feel more relaxed and distraction or stress-free (at least with your hair), especially this summer.
Contrary to popular opinion, the lob is a pretty versatile cut, too. You can style it with a few tools and achieve the messy beach-ready waves all the magazines are raving about. Use your mousse or styling cream, and scrunch your hair for effortless curls, or use a curling iron and hairspray to make big laidback waves that will hold all day. Alternatively, you can slick your hair back with hair lotion for a more sophisticated wet look.
