Who suits a long bob?
This haircut is for just about any woman – no matter what her hair type, face shape and preferred fashion style is. The lob loves everyone!
Oval face: Those with an oval face shape have already won the hairstyling lottery: you can wear almost any haircut. A long bob will support the harmony of the uniform shape of your head, with lengths down to your shoulders framing your lean features. Styling tip: wear a center part or long bangs.
Round face: For those with rounder faces, a layered long bob works best. Upper layers give the top of your head some volume, shifting the proportions and thereby visually elongating your face. Styling tip: wear your long bob with a soft side part or side-swept long bangs.
Angular face: Women with angular features need a soft contrast to compensate for this. A fringy, layered long bob gives your face a soft frame. Styling tip: gentle waves add flattering movement to your lob.
