Balayage highlights bring the tousled lob to life – as seen here on actress Rachel McAdams.

The length of the tousled lob is identical to that of the long bob: The cut frames the face and ends at shoulder length. To achieve the namesake tousled styling, the cut needs to incorporate strong layers, and the ends should also be slightly thinned. Tip: This relaxed cut suits an equally casual color. For increased movement in the hair, highlights in blond tones can be painted on individual strands using the balayage technique.

Tousled lob, easy styling

Hair styling could not be easier. The tousled lob is perfect for anyone who doesn’t want to spend a lot of time on their hair in the morning. After washing, work through a heat-protecting product and blow dry until almost dry. For even more texture, apply a saltwater spray and twist individual sections around a curling iron. Select random sections for the most natural result. Important: For a messy finish, loosen up the curled strands with your fingers. Tip head upside down and apply hair spray. Then lift the head again, knead hair apply a final finish of hair spray. Women with curls or waves have it easier: After washing, simply work through a curling balm work and blow dry hair with a diffuser attachment.
