If you told me I was going to cut my hair into a ‘bob’ 5 years ago, I would have laughed. Or cried. Then walked around in a swimming cap in fear that someone with scissors was watching. ‘Bobs’ belonged on that 55 year old lady round the block. She was predominately called Sue, she loved angora jumpers and she was about to go through a mid-life crisis. I mean… what kind of sexy hairstyle is named after a guy called Robert?
Fast forward a few years and I am loving my long bob! The lob is one heck of a do’! At that gorgeous, shoulder skimming length that’s super flattering, I’m officially on the ‘bob’ train. Although the long bob is far more versatile than ‘the Anna Wintour’ or ‘the Pob’ (god remember that?!), it can be a bit tricky to mix up your look, especially if you previously had long hair.
I’ve been experimenting with my mid-length tresses, and there’s actually loads of options when it comes to styling your lob! Today, I’m going to show you three cute ways to style your lob: the beachy waves, the fishtail braid and the half top knot.
