Don’t waste time deliberating between keeping your long hair or getting a bob, the answer is easy: get a lob hair cut.

Universally flattering on all face shapes, low-maintenance and versatile, it’s the chic cut beloved by Mzansi celebrities and us mere mortals alike.

We’re yet to meet a lob we didn’t like, but we know cutting your hair can be as anxiety-inducing as cutting off a limb, so here’s everything you need to know about the lob and how to style it to put you at ease.

What is a lob?

It’s a slightly longer version of bob, where the length sits just above your shoulders.

What about a lob with a fringe?

You can most definitely have a fringe with your lob, which looks especially flattering on round faces. We recommend going for a long, messy fringe.

How to style a lob

1. Effortlessly wavy

The modern way to wear a lob is to make it look as undone and effortless as possible
