Remember when stick-straight hair was in? Remember the precious minutes (hours?) you anguished in front of the mirror, flattening every last strand to death? We do (mainly because we’re pretty sure our right bicep is legitimately bigger than the left because of it). Lucky for us, those days are long gone and all the cool girls are now opting for a much more low-key look: tousled, straight-from-the-beach waves. Accomplished either with a curling iron, straightener, or a few well-placed braids, this trending hairstyle has become Hollywood’s go-to for even the most formal red carpet events. Though we’ve seen it paired with bangs, and deep side parts, currently, celebs like Kendall Jenner and Ciara are opting for a simple center part and giving off major festival goddess vibes. Oh, and in case you were wondering, this trend doesn’t require long hair—a whole slew of #TeamLob members have jumped on the bandwagon too.

Simple, sleek, and subtle—Ciara is proof this low-key look totally works on a red carpet, too.
Leave it to Gisele to make messy possible-bedhead look utterly chic.
Kendall Jenner’s center part and barely-there waves are the perfect pairing for her bright fuschia lip.
Delevingne’s waves had just the slightest bit of texture and separation when she was snapped outside Chanel’s runway show.
And now we enter lob and bob territory. Frieda Pinto’s slightly mussed-up strands are giving us serious tropical vacay vibes.
We’re obsessed with Jessica Alba’s new lob (courtesy of hairstylist Giannandrea) and the low-key way she styled it at the SXSW conference in Austin.
Blunt ends? Not a problem—just add a little bend in the middle like Jourdan Dunn for model-worthy hair.
No one does French girl hair better than a French girl. Clémence Poésy, can we swap hair secrets?
Miller can do absolutely no wrong in the beauty department, and this adorable bob and perfect flick of liner is proof.
