Choosing the perfect haircut can be tough, especially when picking the right length bob. Short bob haircuts can be very cute, but there are also advantages to the long bob (or "Lob") which skirts the shoulders.
The daring, demure short bob
This haircut is a classic look that can convey any style from classic Hollywood to bold punk. Longer than a pixie cut, this hairstyle hovers around jaw-length. Cut precise and sheer, individuals with straight hair will find their face flatteringly framed. Layers can add a more fun, playful look, and add L'Oreal Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray for an edgy, undone look. Wavy hair will come out classy and timeless at this length; add bangs to the hairstyle, and you've added a youthful and demure quality.
On top of all that, throwing a side part into the mix makes it possible to trick the eye into seeing a more elongated facial shape with softened angles. This cut offers lots of rewards for the bravery of going short, and is easy to maintain and style!
Fall in love with the lob
The long bob has been taking over recently, and offers a great alternative for those who just aren't sure about going shorter. This is a very flexible cut that can be rocked by nearly any facial shape. It's a great midway length, being neither too short nor too long.
Layers and waves can make this cut excitingly versatile, while wearing it straight can give the illusion of length without the maintenance. An angled cut can give you the best of both worlds with short hair in the back and long in the front. Adding a volumizing hairspray such as Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Lift Creation Spray can elevate this 'do, and it looks great even when left to air-dry.
Whether opting for a short bob or a lob, both hairstyles offer unique and head-turning qualities. Check out more ways to style these cuts for even more versatility!
