A lob is just the right cut if you’re after a medium length hairstyle that shows some serious versatility. Don’t be scared of this hairstyle change – it will look super awesome on any type of hair, no matter what your challenging angles may be.
Let’s Do the Lob
Ready to get a ‘happy medium’ cut? Check out the following lob hair styles and get inspired to lose a few inches. (Or more.)
#1: Curly Jaw-Length Bob with Choppy Layers
Jaw-length bobs with choppy layers create thickness and liveliness necessary if you have thin or lackluster hair. To blend chin length layers into the rest of your cut, curl the top sections of your hair away from the face for a glossy and glamorous aesthetic.

#2: Asymmetrical Long Bob
This long bob gets its edginess from the front pieces that are quite a bit longer than the rest of the layered strands, about two and a half inches. The peekaboo blond highlights that frame the face and lighter ends make this not only trendy, but incredibly flattering. Keep hair soft and touchable with smooth styling creams.
#3: Graduated Long Bob Cut
When styled straight, a graduated lob cut gives an illusion of a grown out bob that happens to look so effortlessly chic. To take the minimalistic ‘do to the next level, keep tresses dyed in a solid color or try a very subtle balayage.

#4: Long A-line with Ombre
Styles with uneven length are so fun to rock. You get the ease of short hair, while still having it long enough to tuck behind your ears. What’s more, you’ll have an air of mystery. The ombre effect is expertly done. Not only are the transitions on point, but the tone is just right.
#5: A-Line Lob for Fine Hair
A long bob haircut can really flatter women with fine hair. When cut as an A-line style, locks not only appear longer, but they also seem fuller and thicker! Ask for cute extra long pieces at the front to achieve this whimsical wispy effect.

#6: Textured Lob with Highlights
Here’s an embodiment of today’s most popular style— a textured longer lob with babylights and highlights a few tones lighter than the base color. This ‘do makes your mane feel healthy and fresh, your complexion appear brighter and warmer and you, overall, look trendy and stylish!

#7: Long Bob Cut with Chunky Layers
Many ladies prefer layered cuts to uni-length ones because they bring more movement and texture. Choppier lob hair appears fashionably piece-y, complementing alternative and edgy wardrobes. To take it a step further, go for an icy color like silver or white.

#8: Bob of Colors
Love to be blonde but enjoy the easy maintenance of brown hair? Get the best of both worlds with this two-toned lob that brings texture and fun to otherwise mundane hair.
#9: Medium to Long Style
Keep your medium to long length hair tousled and modernly messy with the help of a haircut that provides plenty of shape and body. This is especially important if you have fine hair – this cut will beef it up without going overboard.
#10: Smooth Cinnamon Bob
A lob haircut is a great way to let a solid color shine. Because simplicity is a huge element of this cut, all-over color coupled with straight locks becomes very chic. If you have medium skin tone and freckles, please, oh please, try this color. It’s…yes you guessed it…everything.
