Coined as ‘the Lob,’ the long bob is one of the best modern hairstyles if your hair is wavy or curly.  This sexy shoulder-grazer from Vanessa Hudgens’s offers the proof. With short layers in the back and long, face-framing layers in the front, the style creates space and freedom for curls to bounce, swing and move without getting too heavy or out of control. It’s also easy to style at home, as all you really want to do is encourage the texture to take its natural shape. For tips for styling similar shapes and textures, click style notes.
