What is a Lob Haircut?

Unless you live under a rock, chances are you have heard the term “lob haircut” at some point during the last year. Lobs are definitely one of the biggest hair trends right now and I don’t see them going anywhere soon. So the question is:  What exactly is a “lob”? … And what is the difference between a lob and regular bob haircut?

Have you heard the term "lob," and wondered what it meant?  Learn all about what a lob haircut is and what the difference between a lob and a bob is.

The name “lob” is a combination of the words “long” and “bob,” creating a unique word for a “long bob”. They are typically A-lined (longer in the front and shorter in the back) and have some slight layering. It is trendy to wear a lob with waves or curls but it also looks good straight.

The popularity of the lob stems from the fact that it is a shorter haircut, but allows you to still put your hair up… and if you decide in a month that you don’t like it, it will be a lot easier to grow out. Another benefit about the lob is that it is flattering on almost anyone.
