Are you thinking of changing your hair in time for summer? There are so many styles that you can choose from, no wonder everyone needs a little hair inspiration. Many people tend to wait until they see a hairstyle they like before they book their hair appointment. We think the hairstyle of the year, (or should I say years) is a gorgeous hairstyle to choose. It goes by the name lob. Which is in other words, is a long bob. You can style the lob however you like. Wavy, curls, straight, up-do, half up half down style, sleek or messy. Just because you have a long bob, doesn’t stop all the styling options you can have. You still have the security of tying your hair back.
We have come up with 21 cure lob haircuts for you to think about.
1. ANGLED LONG BOB WITH LAYERS
Angled lob is quirky, cute and fun.

Adding layers to your lob will make your hair feel thicker and it will have more volume. The angled style is popular amongst many celebrities and is a favourite all over the world.
2. BRUNETTE LOB + FACE-FRAMING BALAYAGE HIGHLIGHTS
You don’t have to be a blonde, a red head or pinked haired to have a lob haircut.
If you have brunette hair, the lob looks as good as having different colour hair. Mixing balayage with the lob looks stunning. Having face-framing highlights will emphasis your face.
3. MESSY, TEXTURED BLONDE LONG BOB
We are loving the messy hair trend!

9. LOB CUT WITH BANGS
Do you fancy having bangs with your lob?

We would recommend it! Opting for a classic lob and having bangs, looks timeless and stylish. If it is the first time you are having bangs and are nervous, try having longer bangs just in case you still want to tie your hair back. You can have the best of both worlds with this hairstyle. Bangs will show off your eyes and you can always style it in so many different ways. If you fancy having your bangs off your face, try clipping it back with bobby pins. If you style your hair differently every other day or so, you won’t get bored of your hairstyle.
10. CURLY, TEXTURED LOB WITH BALAYAGE HIGHLIGHTS
Adding curls will boost your locks.

If your hair is feeling limp and lifeless, try curling it. Curly, textured lob looks stunning and so girly. Balayage highlights will add that special touch that no other highlight technique will be able to do.
11. CARAMEL & CHOCOLATE LOB HAIRSTYLE
Having darker locks that look healthy and shiny is amazing.
This longer bob looks so healthy with a few caramel and chocolate tones. No need to dye the whole head and you don’t have to worry about popping to the hairdressers every few weeks or so to touch up your roots. This style is so low maintenance and perfect for busy, hectic girls out there.
12. WAVY, BLONDE LOB
Having shorter hair can be quicker and easier to style.

Adding waves to a lob from the middle down is a quick and simple way to create a gorgeous look. If you are using hair straighteners, which are what most hairdressers will use, it is so easy. Yes, I did say hair straighteners and not curlers, if you haven’t tried it, you’ll be surprised how stunning the waves are when using these. They don’t just straighten your hair, try it and see.
13. STRAIGHT, BRUNETTE LOB FOR THICK HAIR
This is a cute, stunning lob style.

It is easy and low maintenance. Adding a choppy cut will give you a sleek but edgy style. It will show off your new hairstyle and you will feel amazing. This is the perfect style for thicker hair that will give you a confidence boost.
14. TEXTURED, HONEY BLONDE LOB
When having a longer bob hairstyle, going for a lighter shade is better to manage than to have longer hair.

The first thing you notice with this hairstyle is the colour. The colour makes the haircut stand out. The honey, blonde shades look stunning. The textured layers add the bounce to the hair to give the hair life. This colour can be topped up every month or so but if you were to leave it, it will still look amazing. This colour and hairstyle is so versatile.
15. CHOPPY, ANGLED LOB
You can wear your lob up or down but we love this hairstyle down…

16. CHOCOLATE BROWN LOB
This looks so good, chocolate brown mixed with a lob. We are all in envy!
You can look this good too with chocolate locks. This is a longer bob with a few highlights. It looks natural, healthy and perfect for any occasion.

This straight lob is a classic style.
