The asymmetric bob has been a fan favorite for ages—while the "Posh Spice" haircut à la Victoria Beckham may have pioneered a movement in recent history, '20s flappers sported sharp, gradually longer front pieces with their edgy short chops. So when the lob became the most requested haircut in the early 2010s, an asymmetric variation was a natural progression.
When styled straight and sleek, the asymmetric lob is edgy and chic, but when you style it with beachy, tousled waves, the look is just as en vogue—you really can't go wrong. And as recently evidenced by the likes of Chrissy Teigen, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Jourdan Dunn, we're dubbing this cut the style of the summer.
Check out the celeb-approved cut below along with some styling tips!
Chrissy Teigen Instagrammed a video of herself showing off her short lob with the caption, "New cut!! Asked for the khloe-rosie, side of chrissy khlosey and @jenatkinhair knew exactly what I meant." Atkin jokes that it's a "don't cut the front" 'do, and we have to say, it's working for this hot mama. To get that effortless texture, try spritzing on some Ouai Wave Spray ($26).
JLaw took her bold short 'do a step further by dousing her locks in a frosty blond color. Should you choose to go for a dye job along with your new summer chop, we recommend Oribe's Shampoo for Beautiful Color ($42).
So, will you be giving this cut a try this summer? Sound off below!
