Five Ways To Style A Long Bob
By now, it’s apparent to anyone keeping track of hair trends that the lob haircut (a long bob that can hit anywhere from your shoulder to your collarbone) isn’t going anywhere. Season after season, the lob has proven to be one of the chicest and most sophisticated haircuts, and part of its staying power is that it's a style that works for a low maintenance life. Bob hairstyles are versatile, easy to style, and timeless: check out our five favorite ways to wear it long.
Sleek and polished
When opting for a straight long bob haircut, you might want it to appear silky and polished without being boring and flat. To get this look, start by washing your hair with a straightening shampoo. Next, blow dry your hair straight using a medium-size round brush, then smooth it out with a flat iron. Finish by using hairspray through your mid-lengths and ends for extra sheen.
This laid-back look is one of our favorite ways to rock a long bob haircut. Not quite wavy but definitely not straight, it has a windswept, easy texture. Firstly, divide your hair into two to three sections depending on how thick or thin your hair is. Next, braid each section and then run the flat iron over the braids slowly. As soon as you take the braids out, use some hairspray to ensure the rumpled texture stays in place.
If you have an angular or heart-shaped face, bangs are a great way to frame it. There are various possibilities for short hair with bangs, but some standout styles for long bobs in particular include the tousled lob with messy side-swept bangs or short and straight-cut bangs that reach just one third of the way down your forehead.
