So you’ve decided it’s time for a summer hair update, but you’re not ready for chin-grazing strands (we get it—going short can be an emotional experience). Enter: the “lob”—or rather, the long bob. “The cut is slightly angled with a shorter length in the back than the front, for a chic, edgy finish,” says celebrity hairstylist Marcus Francis. “It works for many different hair types and textures, from straight and fine, straight and thick, to wavy and thick!”
Falling somewhere between your chin and your shoulders, perfectly tousled, and slightly angled, the lob has officially made a comeback as Hollywood’s favorite summer haircut. Don’t believe us? Just ask Jessica Alba, Emma Stone, and Dianna Agron.
