Stars, trendsetters, style icons – everyone loves the lob! The trend hairstyle has become the blockbuster among bobs in the meantime. We show you what defines the long bob, who it looks good on and what makes it a true classic:
With this haircut, the hair is cut to one length between the chin (original bob length) and shoulder.
Transition hairstyle? No way! The long bob has developed into a true classic and permanent feature in the hairstyle landscape. On the current trend charts, the extended bob is once again found near the top of the rankings. What makes the lob so popular? Clearly its versatility! It has even more talents:
The long bob is a blockbuster because...
... one does not have to choose between a long mane and short cut.
... it is suitable for any hair.
... it is long enough for a great updo.
... it makes you look younger in next to no time.
... it can be glamorous (sleek) and casual (wavy) at the same time.
... it is styled in just a few easy steps.
... you always look up to date.
... with bob in the name, it simply has good genes.
Oval face: People with an oblong face are winners anyway, they can wear virtually any haircut successfully. The long bob supports the harmony of a uniformly shaped head, while the tips down to shoulder length flatter the slim contour. Styling tip: Wear a centre parting or long fringe.
Round face: If you have a round face, it is best to choose a long bob version in the stepped cut. The frayed sections add some volume to the crown, shift the proportions and thereby make the face appear longer. Styling tip: A soft side parting or a long side fringe is a perfect fit.
Edgy face: Women with an angular head need a soft contrast to compensate. A frayed, stepped long bob gently frames the face, softening the hard contours. Styling tip: Soft waves lend the lob a flattering flair.
A haircut takes over the world: Bloggers, models and stars – everyone is giving their long bob passion free rein. The most beautiful examples in our gallery:
