For the ultimate face-framing chop, try an sleek lob like Washington's. To keep the look smooth and frizz-free, work a quarter-size dollop of Living Proof Leave-In Conditioner ($26) through damp hair. After blow-drying and straightening, use two drops of Verb Ghost Weightless Oil ($18) for extra shine.

One of the most versatile and easy-to-style lobs is the blunt cut. To mimic Union's look, blast a texture spray (we love the one by Kristin Ess, $14) from roots to midshaft for a quick, lived-in style.

The key to styling a curly lob like Knowles' is to keep hair super moisturized. Smooth Camille Rose Curl Love Moisture Milk ($15) through damp hair to detangle, shine, and protect natural hair.

One of the most sought-after long bob haircuts is a blunt, super-texturized, and wavy look. If your hair falls flat naturally, enlist the help of a wave spray like Ouai's ($26). Mist the lightweight product through damp or dry hair for undone texture like Lucy Hale's, or focus on the roots for volume.

We love the idea of an asymmetrical lob for thick, full hair texture like Chopra's. To play up your volume and texture, apply IGK Sunday Funday Texture Foam ($29) from roots to end, using your hands to distribute the product.

To maintain a soft, low-key cut like Gomez's, use Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream ($52). Work a small amount through damp hair to add moisture and eliminate frizz.

While we love the idea of a relaxed, air-dried lob, there's no harm in adding definition and curls from time to time, like Stone did. Prime your hair with Ouai’s heavenly scented Memory Mist ($28) and use the GHD Curve Classic Wave Wand ($200) to create easy natural-looking curls.

For undone but subtle waves like Monica's, spray R+Co Sail Soft Wave Spray ($29) through damp hair, scrunching with your fingers. The vitamin C–loaded formula leaves hair soft, shiny, and naturally wavy.

Clarke's full, shoulder-length cut is perfect for the low-maintenance girl. Blast roots with a blow-dryer for added volume and body, or revive a day-old style with Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo ($24).

A chin-grazing cut is incredibly flattering with shorter, face-framing layers. Enlist a super-moisturizing, smoothing curl cream (we suggest Marc Anthony's, $7) to get a bouncy, wet-looking texture like Rihanna's.
