the bob the lob

No matter what you call it, or how you describe it—the timeless bob haircut is having (another!) hair fashion moment this season. Known for its versatility, this cut can morph from a polished boss-babe profile to red-carpet glam with just a flick of a flat iron or a twist of a curling wand. Pick your best length to fit your mood… Try the classic bob with blunt-cut ends for a modern vibe. Or go for the “lob,” a.k.a. the long bob, with tips brushing the shoulders as in this free-flowing style (shown here). Or, opt for the “shob”—the short bob—freshest when worn with waves paired with straight ends.
