Medium lob haircuts have become one of the hottest hair trends. Their ideal length fits somewhere between bob and pageboy styles and allows for customization to suit individual preferences.
Layers for Added Body and Texture
Layers are an easy way to give your lob added body and texture, creating volume with depth by adding highlights or balayage on dark strands – giving each section its own sense of movement and depth.
Flattering Face Shapes
A medium lob haircut is the ideal length to suit all face shapes, from circular, diamond, or square shapes. It strikes the ideal balance between longer styles that could look too boxy on some faces and shorter cuts that might look harsh on others.
Soft, layered medium lob haircuts can be especially flattering on heart- and diamond-shaped faces, explains Gillen. A soft texture can help give the impression of slimmer facial features while smaller faces may benefit from something like Selena Gomez’s super-sexy side-part lob with bangs.
Versatile Styling Possibilities
Medium lobs offer many styling possibilities. You can go for straight and sleek, or add angles through layers or the way your fringe hangs – for an attractive, polished look suitable for women of all ages and face shapes.
Slicked-Back Bob for Formal Events
One of the most sought-after styles for this length is a slicked-back bob, which creates a more sophisticated appearance and works particularly well for formal events by drawing focus towards your eyes and cheekbones.
Easy to Maintain
Longer length makes lobs easier to style and manage. Formal occasions can be handled easily with low buns or ponytails while romantic and casual looks can benefit from loose waves or curls.
Perfect for Any hair Type
The lob’s versatility makes it the ideal cut for almost every type of hair texture, from curly locks to straight strands. A wavy lob works particularly well for curlier locks as it enhances their natural curl pattern while creating an effortless beachy vibe.
Celebrities Rocking the Lob
Celebrities like Mila Kunis, Ciara, and Kendall Jenner have been seen sporting super sexy textured lobs with soft layers highlighted with blonde balayage color which frames their faces while creating dimension in their locks.
So, whether you have straight hair or curly hair, the lob is a perfect choice for a trendy and versatile hairstyle.
