Choosing Haircut by Hair Length
It’s the first thing you bump into when researching bob hairstyles. Though historically the bob originated from a short cut of about the ear length, present-day versions can flow below the ears and even down to the collarbone. Obviously, the length of the haircut can change any silhouette dramatically, and you need to decide how much you are ready to show.

The long bob, often reduced to lob, is a shoulder-skimming alternative to the classic bob haircut. When looking for a modern cut to get rid of your long tresses or, vice versa, when growing out your short hair, the lob should be the first option to consider. “The lob is such a popular style because it is a striking look, and yet you don’t have to commit to having short or long hair,” said Earl Simms, celebrity stylist and Kerluxe ambassador, to Glamour. You can wear your lob loose or put it up, style it polished or tousled, and find one from a variety of long bob styles that flatters you most.
