Insta Trend: The Lob
Welcome back to our new InstaTrend series, Influensters! Let’s have a hair talk, shall we? Have you heard of the lob ‘do? The most influential celebs and bloggers have been sporting the long bob, and now it looks like the rest of the beauty-loving world is hopping on the trend train and who can blame them? The lob is versatile, effortless, and timeless. Here's how to get it and where to find inspiration:
What to tell your hairdresser: Bring photos of the type of look you’re striving for. We love Lucy Hale's version. Her hair stylist Kristin Ess also has an Instagram account packed with lob-spiration. Once you're in the chair at your salon, as for something like, ‘I want a collar-bone length lob with texture throughout.’
The styling tools to use:
For voluminous, bouncy curls: HerStyler 3P Tourmaline Curling Iron
For loose waves: Hot Tools Curly-Q Tapered Curling Iron
For sleek, straightness: Chi Flat Iron Hair Straightener
Texturizing products compatible with your lob:
