Never one to be too far behind on a trend, Cara Delevingne’s the latest celeb to chop off her long hair and join #TeamLob. And she’s in great company, with Khloe Kardashian, Fergie and Caroline Flack all rocking the collarbone-grazing style. If you’re thinking about joining the long bob revolution, we think the time is definitely now – and there are plenty of reasons why it’s a good idea. So if you’ve ever asked “Would I suit a lob?”, keep reading to find out why the answer is definitely a yes.
Lobs Suit Most Face Shapes
When choosing hairstyles, it’s important to take into account your natural face shape. Luckily though, the lob is a very flattering style for most shapes. Round and square shapes usually have to be careful with most shorter styles to avoid accentuating the widest parts of their face; but the lob can actually help lengthen round faces, and it also skims past wide jaws on squares. Women with heart and oval-shaped faces will also look amazing with this style – it’s a winner!
They’re Easy to Style
One of the great things about the long bob is that it’s supposed to look slightly outgrown and lived in, which makes it an absolute dream to style. Unlike shorter bobs that need to be kept looking sleek and tidy, lobs look amazing when they’re a bit tousled, meaning that a few spritzes of salt spray could be all it takes to nail Cara’s effortless style. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be dressed up – lobs look super sophisticated when they’re straightened into a sleek style, and also look beautiful with carefully groomed waves.
They Suit All Colours
Whether you’ve got a bold, unnatural colour or natural-looking higlights, all colours and colour styles look great with a bob. Again, the lived-in look of the lob means that it looks particularly great on girls with balayage or ombre, as the dark roots just add to the over-grown look.
